    This my second stay....first time standard room without window.. this second time superior queen with window wiith extra cost hoping the room bigger and got safety box. But i delusional both are the same...i think the second time room is smaller than first time. No deposit box in the room although it mentioned. Toilet so old and worn out.The only i like they provide mini bar..some tv channels...and cold aircond.

    A reasonable and comfortable staying place”

    This is a well located hotel which easily accessible to eating at famous local noodles, shopping at mall or local market. Interior of the rooms is meeting my expectation , water pressure is good. If you are driving, you need to search for surrounding public car park which might be difficult to find during peak hours. Overall it is a nice hotel.

    Almost everything is provided except slippers. We were transferred because we were assigned at a room booked by another person. However, they have provided immediately our room and allowed us to take our time to transfer. The staffs are very accommodating. The hotel is clean. Overall, our stay is amazing.

    Hotel Needs Refurbishment”

    Pros: Strategic location. Cons: Room was cramped, totally different from pictures. Everything is old and rundown - definitely need an upgrade. Hotel not only looks old but smells old too. Suspect there were bed bugs because my son's eczema was terribly aggravated during our stay there. Staff were helpful (kudos to them) to clean the room daily but it didn't help much.

    Wonderful stay”

    Room was clean and tidy, no smoking smell (hotel claims to be a non-smoking hotel). Location was excellent with abundant restaurants to choose from and close to the Sunday morning market at Gaya Street. It was not noisy when we stayed despite the hotel being along the main road of KK city. Toilet was clean with adequate toiletries. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and wouldn't mind to come back again if we are in KK.

    Totally friendly and helpful staffs from the reception to concierge and as well with the housekeeping staffs. The location was really easy access to almost everything. The room is totally superb clean eventhough it is an old hotel. Just the facilities in room need to be upgraded into a new one and telephone calls can't be made in the room as there is no signal. Luckily the Wifi works well and fast too.

    Located in the middle of KK CBD, the hotel is a no-hassle stay and offer Value-for-money experience. Cable TV is available (albeit limited) and the bed is comfy. 24 hour convenience stores are available nearby. Walking distance to Gaya Street and shopping complexes such as Plaza Merdeka, Suria Sabah and Centre Point. Totally recommended!

    Very worth it ”

    Although it’s not very well sound proof (isolation from outside is not so good), we can still sleep well with nice air conditioner and ear plugs. Free mineral water bottles for every night and with fountain for refilling water, which is very important in this hot/humid city. They clean our room and provide new clean towels and toiletries every night (if they are used up). The facilities are a bit old, but they all work well. Great location close to everything we need for traveling!!! The staffs are very very nice and friendly!

    My Favorite Go-To Hotel in KK”

    I have stayed in some other hotels before but ever since my first time at Kinabalu Daya, it has always been my favorite go-to-stay every time I’m in KK. It’s affordable, clean, all staff greets you warmly, superb location - walking distance to many eateries, malls, attractions and the famous Gaya Sunday Street Market. The only cons I could find are there’s no gym (hehe cardio junkie) and parking can be quite hard. If you drive, don’t forget to put parking coupons on your dashboard. The MPKK are very very active here. I would recommend this hotel to single, couple or business travelers. Not suitable for family with small kids.
