Excellent location ”

Kinabalu Daya Hotel is situated pretty close to everything. For food, the place is surrounded by plenty of restaurants of different variety ranging from Italian, Western/European, Chinese, Indian and tradition food. They are many shops nearby as well as Malls that are just 5 minutes away. It is 10 to 15 minutes walk to the Jesselton Jetty to go the islands, and few minutes away from a cheap laundry shop. It is a great location. Definitely a place to stay for business trip, couples, family with children and solo. Take note that first three floors are smoking zone so if you're not into smoking and/or with kids, request for the non-smoking zone: 3rd floor and above.

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.

Surprisingly nice hotel compared to its price”

Professional staff, wi-fi in bedroom, good breakfast

this hotel is much better than another hotel i stayed with almost the same price. the hotel is conveniently located near some shopping malls ,travel agencies, convenient stores and some overnight food stores are right round the corner. this is a location even better than those at 'city centre' around the night market because the area of best western is cleaner and with a very mordern shopping mall, suria sabah, with a cinema (3d movies available), and the travel agencies are very important to inexperienced travellers. the night market and alike are in fact within 15 min walk when you want to take a look. the staff are nice and helpful. the breakfast served is better than i expect for such a price. the wi-fi in the room does not always work, but the convenience of staying inside the room is something not every hotel in kota kinabalu can offer. the city view from the window is refreshing as well.

Good budget hotel in heart of city”

Location, breakfast

This hotel is located in the heart of Kota Kinabalu, across the street from the shopping center Wisma Merdeka and within walking distance of Jesselton Point, from where you can catch boats to offshore islands as well as further off Pulau Labuan, a 90 minute or so ride from Brunei. It is also within walking distance of a waterfront night market where you can sample a variety of local fare. My room was supposed to be standard with no window, but I did have a window in my room (perhaps I was upgraded?), The room was small but clean, up to the usual Best Western standards. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was quite good for an economy hotel, with a variety of Western and Malaysian items offered, including fresh omelet and waffle stations. All in all, it was a pleasant experience, but if room size is important to you, you may want to consider the deluxe room.

Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel”

It was right in the heart of what was going on. A very good location. The food was also really good.
Bar tenders really didn't know how to mix drinks, and the shortage of internent boxes for the room.

I would strongly reccomend Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel to any one who visits Mayalasia. The location of the hotel was in a excellent location. It was alnmost right in the middle of the main street with a mall directly across the street. I mean you could take left or a right from the front doors and you are immedatly right in the mix. The bar and resturant at the hotel were really good too. Just in case you didn't want to leave the building. Also they had a almost all day happy hour.

Simply elegant”

Clean facilities and accommodating staff

Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel is in excellent proximity to almost all malls and tourist destination. The hotel is right in the middle of premiere shopping and restaurant establishments in the city. Taxis are available right at the door step. Staff serves us with a smile and warm. Room is clean and well-kept everyday. One major downside of the hotel is the foodservice. Our booking comes with free breakfast. But unlike in other Best Western Hotels, Kinabalu Daya Hotel's food was disappointing. The menu for our three days are essentially the same. So I opted for bread and butter and baked beens. I have noticed as well the lack of sanitation and foodservice skills of the staff.

Great location, friendly staff, good breakfast,

I always use the Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel when I visit Kota Kinabalu as the great location, friendly staff, and competitive pricing are all attractive. The hotel is mid-range and the rooms may be small but the above features and the homely atmosphere will have me return on each visit. In fact, there is a bit of tradition in my cohort of biologists of staying at the Daya - we all know what to expect and are comfortable with it.

I was there when is Malaysia public holidays, there are quite a number of patrons checking in at a same time however there were only two staffs on duty so i waited for a while to check-in. They served towels for check-in patrons in the lobby which enable us to feel revive. Although I am depressing with the small room, it was offset with the great location of Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel. The Sunday market, Philippino Market, Suria Sabah shopping mall and Jesselton Jetty are just within walking distance and easy to reach. The breakfast provides by hotel had very less varieties but the staffs were very friendly and attentive. I would recommend visitors to give themselves a chance to try local food. I am able to store my luggage after i check out from the hotel and before i depart to airport. Overall i had a pleasant stay in Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel.
