          first time for me to stay in KK Times Square Hotel and already i love the place!will definitely stay there again during future travels with my son.it is conveniently located with restos, bars and a 24-hr convenience store all within walking distance from the hotel.the place is safe even for a solo lady traveler like me that i had no fear of going out of my room and have a late dinner at a nearby restaurant.highly recommended to those who wants value for their money. KK Times Square Hotel is, for me, the "IN" place in Kota Kinabalu!

          Hotel with value for money

          i have experienced putting at least a night at all the hotels within kk times square area and i would say kk times square hotel is the best medium budget hotel in that area. friendly staff, quite spacious room, efficient service, proper setting of the hotel rooms, clean room and for those who don't wish to leave the hotel room, the hotel even provides good food at affordable price! without even wasting any energy going to the town(though the town is less than 5mins away), you could find places for you to have a relaxing time within the area(kk times square)....overall, good location and good hotel! i could guarantee a good stay you shall experience upon choosing the hotel. i'm looking forward for my next stay at the hotel soon!

          Great Hotel but service a bit late”

          New hotel with new room facilities, Strategic location with a lot night life for chill out

          The hotel is quite new, hence, the facilities in the room (i.e. bed, showers and etc) is all still in condition like new. There are few clubs and pubs within KK Time Square (White Room, Chocolate Factory, Firefly) for nightlife lovers to chill out. There are also few bars for some early birds to get few drinks before some heavy shots. But the service is a bit slow. I order an extra bed which need me to call the reception for few times before I get it.

          the room itself was nice, clean and comfortable. normally people would say this hotel is not in a convenient location. times square of kota kinabalu is not so far away from the main part of the city, however because of the road system it is quite difficult to walk down there, meaning you have to pay for taxi every time

          The hotel rooms were very clean. I love the bed and the comforters. The bathrooms were clean as well. Newspapers was a plus for me. The TV was SAMSUNG LCD, very cool!
          The hotel was a bit far from the malls. Minimum rate of the taxi was 15 ringgit going to centerpoint. Going to one Borneo was 30 ringgit, very expensive although that mall was really far.

          We highly recommend this hotel. It is not expensive but you get more than what you pay for. The rooms were very spacious even the bathroom. It is very clean and we are all very happy with our stay in this hotel. Given a chance to go back to kota kinabalu, we will surely stay in this hotel again. Two thumbs up for KK Times Sqare Hotel. =D

          It claims to be within the city center, but considering that KK Times Square is set up like a moat with only one access from the main road all the way around, setting off for downtown on foot takes a long time even for experienced walkers. In the heat or the rain, that's doubly troublesome.

          Calm and comfortable place for holiday.Good view of sea sight and sea breeze at night.Free car-parking at hotel premises and secure.Hotel receptionist and other staff are very helpful and instant response to any problems arise.
          Overall is within my satisfaction but, I think the bathroom need to inspect and renovate co's the flooring is badly fixed.Other facilities are excellent, so far.

          This is my first experience staying at KK Times Square Hotel but I feel that I already familiar with the surrounding and environmental friendly. The place is calm and good for relaxation, eventhough it is quite far from city centre.For those who travel to KK by car, it is really convenient as they can go to city centre within few minutes only and when they are back to hotel they will get free car-parking arround the hotel premises easily.I think this hotel could be the most popular and best choice place when the building is fully completed with the shopping mall and good food courts/restaurants.

          Pleasant stay @ KK times Square”

          KK timesquare is a new hotel in town, albeit far from the city it is very close to the airport. Our requirement was from transit breaks so we chose this hotel. Hotel staff is extremely helpful and having a 24 hrs convenience store next door helps.
          Not much except that the hotel does not have a porch or a canopy for cabs to wait. If its raining, then you'll have to get wet to reach to the cab or the hotel.

          We had a pleasant stay at KK Time Square. We were staying at KK time square between our journey to and fro from Sarawak. KK TS is close to the airport and helps not being stuck in the peak hour jams. Staff is helpful too. There is a 24 hours convenience store right next to the hotel which is nice. There are few night clubs, bistros and cafe around which could be useful as well.

          Great location, nice stay”

          Pros - great location as it is near KK city, just beside Imago mall and there is a restaurant beside the hotel which is very convenient. The area is newly built so the surrounding is new and clean. The room is also clean and comfortable. Cons - there is only 4 free parking slots provided, which is almost always full, so we need to pay for the parking, charged per hour. It would be better if the hotel provided more free parking slots or give a parking fee waiver. Overall, great location and clean comfortable room.

          KK Times Square”

          KK Times Square is very near the airport and easily accessible to town. There are a few restaurants in the mall for a quick bite. It is ideal if you have an early morning flight.
          It is really in the middle of nowwhere, with a view of construction. No ATM close by.

          KK Times is ideal if you have a late night or early morning flight as it is 10 minutes from the airport and easy to find. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We needed an ATM so the manager arranged a shuttle to take us to the closest one, at no charge. They also arranged a 5:30am taxi pick up. It is not a convenient place to stay if you are there to see the sights of KK, but if you need a quick, easy, clean and comfortable place near the airport, this is perfect.

          Great location”

          Great location for those with business or meetings in the KK TImes Square, Imago or Gleneagles KK area. Plenty of food and 24 hour convenience stores around.

          Great location, Satisfactory hotel experience”

          This is located right across Imago Mall, one of the most popular malls in Kota Kinabalu. Clean room. a definite must-stay if you are coming here for a short 2-3 day leisure stay, NOT reccomended to business travellers as it is quite expensive due to its tourist-based location.

          Budget hotel with great locaton”

          Location is great, nearby shopping malls

          This time we travelled for business purpose, and the meeting location was just next to KK Times Square. That was why we chose this hotel, KK Times Square Hotel. We could travel between the hotel and meeting loaction within 10 mins by walk. It was very convenience. Even this is a budget hotel, but the quality was quite good and location is great. I'd recommand it to budget travellers.
