Great Staff”

I travel a lot (both for business and leisure) and decided to spend my birthday traveling to the rainforest. I landed in Kota Kinabalu very late and last minute booked a reservation at Hotel Gaia 95. Best decision! Not only is it ideally located in the middle of everything, waking distance to the best shops, mall, restaurants, beach and night markets but they also have some of the best staff I have ever encountered. One staff in particular is the manager Allister. Not only is he sweet and hospitable, but he works tirelessly to make sure all the guests are happy and well taken care of. I even stayed at the Magellan Resort or could have gone to Shangri-la but I didn’t get the same treatment the way I did from Allister and the staff at Hotel Gaia. They treat you like a family member and for me, that type of service is rare. I extended my stay at KK for a few more days and Allister helped book me a scuba diving-island hopping private tour as well as a riverboat cruise to see monkeys. Not o

This was my second time to stay at Hotel Gaia 95. I like their location, and it is so strategic which in the heart of the city. It is so convenient for me to reach out to anywhere. (food, groceries, local attractions, shopping, etc) The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. They assist me on anything whichever they can. The room is clean and neat. I will definitely come back to stay at Hotel Gaia 95 again for sure.

Noisy at night ”

Stayed on the second floor with a window facing Gaya Street. If you are a light sleeper like me, you will not be able to sleep well. At late night, I could hear sound of people talking, laughing, etc. On Friday and Saturday nights, there are food trucks and live singing on the street right outside the hotel till after midnight. After the food market closed on Saturday midnight, work for setting up tents in preparation for Sunday street market began. In future, I will avoid all the hotels in low rise buildings along Gaya Street between The Jesselton and Mandarin Hotel. I will be near but not too near to the action next time. Seems that hotel charges in Kota Kinabalu have increased a lot in recent years during to booming tourism.

I check on the 30th Sept 2020 through agoda, request for late check-in and late check out instantly received response through email from Gaia95 on the request. As soon as i check-in i was suprised on the room was cosy and you get everything u need cable tv, hot shower, aircond, aminities such as coffee/ Tea.. for a bargain price is worth it! And the most important thing is cleanliness of the room is top notch and very near to some of the famous hawkers food at gaya street and shopping malls. This Hotel need to be in top 10 of affordable stays for budget travellers in KK area!! Will be back again.

Overall great stay and location. Matches up with the photos with solid WiFi, hot water and cleanliness. The rooms may be smaller to average but are designed well to maximize space. The showers were big to make it easy to rinse off after a day at the islands. Overall highly recommend and is now my go-to hotel for KK. Grab drivers and taxis easily knew it was too.

Good hotel, bad guest(s)”

The hotel itself is excellent - the location and accessibility is good, and the staff are wonderfully helpful to guests. It is clean, and fairly-well maintained. The showers had good pressure and hot water. Beds were comfortable, and pillows were quite new. Despite this being a non-smoking hotel, I was unfortunate enough to have a floor mate who smoked. The room I booked did not have a window, which made it worse. Fortunately, he/she was instructed to stop smoking after the reception staff was informed of the smell permeating the whole floor. I wonder if hotel management actually enforced the RM 100 fine for smoking on the premises. I would definitely stay here again, and hope that I get a more civic-conscious floor mate next time.

Stay for 2 night, first night the lift was out of service, thus only can use the staircase to reach the room at level 2, but is not a big issue, the lift is back in service on day 2.

Woke up the next morning for an early flight and the streets turned into a flea market. Very versatile. Walking distance to a handful of eateries and shopping malls such as Suria Sabah and wisma Merdeka. Easy to get a Grab Car. Except when the roads are closed due to the markets..
