      well, kingston hotel located at kk times square, kota kinabalu, sabah. this is the new developing area at kk town. kingston hotel is located at this strategic location where we can find the convenience shop, restaurants, lounge & bar and also other shop lots at here. however, we're not happy with the parking rate here which we need to pay rm2 per entry which is too costly especially we're hotel guest. hence, suggested this parking rate should be voided for the hotel guest as well. overall, the kingston hotel is the nice place to stay and rest. housekeeping is doing their job well and good customer services is provided. this hotel is value for money and i would like to recommend this hotel to those travel in couple and family.

      Tidy and spacious rooms”

      The hotel is near to the airport and easy to access. The rooms are neat and spacious.

      the hotel is situated in a commercial area with many pubs and businesses. the pubs operate late into the night and if you can't sleep, you can just go downstairs for a drink. the room is spacious and clean, with all the standard amenities. internet is free, so that's a plus. the disadvantage of this hotel is that the town area is not near enough to walk. so you need to take a taxi to town. taxis do not operate on meter in kota kinabalu, so you need to haggle for the prices.

      i was not expecting such a clean and big room with this kind of price. I am impressed. This is a very decent hotel either for business or leisure. With abundance of night spot for meals, casual drinks, karaoke or clubbing, you wont be bored at night nor days. I would strongly recommend this hotel to others and will definitely be back again as i am a frequent traveller to kota kinabalu. Thank you

      it was a convenient stay. the hotel is located at a newly developed area in kota kinabalu(less than 5mins drive to the town). if you are looking for a comfy medium budget hotel, i would suggest the place. besides the hotel itself, you will find it easy to find places for you to have a relaxing time within the area (kk times square).

Tv channels are limited and no Refrigerator. Surrounding the hotels, you can find foods bars and convinient store. Only problem is transport to town. If u have ur own transport, this hotel shd be A good stay. Only 5minutes to town. However, on daytime u need to pay rm2 parking per Entry.. At night is free.

      Nice stay for an airport hotel”

      Very good value, hotel was clean, the staff attentive. No cafe in the hotel but plenty within the complex. Quiet and comfortable.

      Just passing thru on a one day stay. Hotel is 10 minutes from the airport and cab fare about $12 US. Room was small, but quiet and clean. Television was new and remote worked well. Air con too. I mention this, because a hotel in Manila for the same price would be a dump. No cafe in the hotel but plenty of pub types within the complex with beer and vodka. Meals are quite reasonable in price also. Hotel staff arranged transport back to the airport next morning for a fixed fare of 30 ringgit ($12US). English speaking staff and quite nice. No other amenities but then, I wasn't looking for any. Will stay again when in KK.

      it was our first time staying at this hotel. it took quite some time for the hotel to check in eventhough we came around the check in time. this was because the rooms are still waiting to be cleaned by housekeeping. but once we got our rooms, it was very nice and comfortable. there is a 24 hour mamak shop nearby. the only thing was about parking as we had to pay accordingly parking ticket. as for location it was just walking distance to imago shopping mall and we did not have to use our car to go there.
