                This hotel service is quiet good although when we ask for two sejadah for prayer they only give us one. And they take a long time to deliver the sejadah we had to call the housekeeping twice. As it is for our honeymoon, my first impression is quiet ok as it decorate the towel into love swans. The room itself is quiet ok.. The breakfast has a lot of variety and it satisfies us.. So far recomended to stay here..

                Feeling After Stay ”

                Things that personally feel discomfort/dissatisfaction: 1) Water at bath tab cannot control hot/cold water even I have complaint for few times during 1st & 2nd day. However my complaint only been respond on the last night. 2) Wifi is not available in room and I stay at 5th floor so can get the weak wifi signal from lobby. It is difficult when the room is not equipped with wifi especially for business traveller as you need to go down to lobby to get internet access. Things that satisfied me: 1) Overall the room (superior room) consider spacious for 2 person. 2) Housekeeping is effective as you only to hang the card outside your room and they will come for cleaning.

                Housekeeping Can Be Improve ”

                This is my second time staying here. It is the most affordable and best location to stay in the middle of the city. However, i'm quite surprised that our pillows have no pillowcase but since we are very tired after traveling the whole day, we don't bother much about it. The glass provided also found dusty and seems like not been clean for sometime. If you are looking a secure parking and cheap, you can considering staying here. The restaurant breakfast buffet is just normal, no extra special one.

                Value for money 4-star hotel”

                Pros - Room rates arguably cheapest among 4-stars in KK. Rooms are clean, reception staff very helpful, breakfast was great (mix of local and western, salads & cereal, bread n pastries section, egg station). Free parking for guest in basement. 4m deep pool just recently refurbished and reopened. Cons - no lifts access from basement parking, need to walk up some stairs or along the sloped driveway by the lobby. Last stay, we got a room with faulty door keycard scanner, was given manual key to use. We've stayed here quite a number of times before, definitely 1 of our top choices whenever we come to visit KK.

                Good Stay Overall But Hotel Needs a bit of Makeover”

                Good value but hotel needs a makeover (newer fittings, lights, toilet etc) and WIFI needs to be in every room. This is 2019. It's very difficult to plan a smooth holiday without internet. Luckily I'm a local, the foreigners who never bought internet plan are forced to come down to the lobby for the internet. Unacceptable in this day and age when u have 2-star shoplot hotels providing internet on every floor.

                Great hotel - beyond expectation based on the price given”

                Hotel is beyond expectation based on the price which i booked was RM 152. Hotel is clean, breakfast has a lot of varieties, parking was free, staff was helpful, room was spacious. It is more than we have expected based on the price. It was not a run down hotel. I do not know why people kept on saying that. Location is near to IMAGO shopping center - around 10 minutes by car.

                Although the hotel is tucked away from the city, access to many shopping area is not a problem. choices for taxi is available at the front lobby and also you can take a brisk walk to KK Warisan City area or to the popular Imago Mall. The staff is very courteous and helpful to get you around the city and recommended many eating places. The stay at Sabah Oriental Hotel was pleasant and the breakfast is worth for the money, though it was not great. A good hotel for short holiday and during my stay the Hotel was free from hustle and bustle of the city road traffic. Fully recommendable and great value for money.

                Pro: convenient location with many car parks if you are driving. Breakfast was good with many varieties. Cons: when I arrived at 11pm with paid booking, they told me there is no more room card keys, instead giving me a manual conventional Room Key, which gets stuck directly in the door key hole. Have to wait their team solve the case within the next hour in midnight! Room very old condition. Funny part is they gave me a Power card for the room electricity, but everything is centralized, so card is a waste of time? Swimming pool was under renovation (Agoda should inform this prior booking!?!)
