    Great Stay”

    I love the distance with Kota Kinabalu attraction places, very nearby. But a little disappointing with parking. Its only few. I recommend KK Waterfront Hotel to provide guest parking as complimentary without guest to pay more for a park to a external park entity. Overall, great stay

    I love the hotel location at the centre and very near to hawker stalls for seafoods hunt and shopping malls. Restaurants are just everywhere and you will not be hungry. The hotel staffs are very nice and approachable, their hospitality starts from the receptionists and the staffs who taking care of breakfast foods at cafe floor 1. It was a pleasant stay and I love the breakfast foods so much, lots of choices like 5 stars hotel. Thank you so much to KK waterfront hotel staffs and I will stay here again in future if I go to KK. ❤️🌟👍

    Centrally Located”

    Location, Value For Money and Cleanliness

    Very convenient location and the staff are very friendly. Check in was very quick. We are very pleased that we are allowed to check in early – as we arrived in KK early morning from Shanghai. The hotel is centrally located and it was just next to Sabah Centrepoint and Warisan Square Mall. Also, just step out of the hotel’s main entrance is the Starbuck coffee shop. Across the street is the famous Waterfront Sea food restaurants and the Central Market. Unfortunately, the hotel’s toilet needs maintenance – the shower’s handle very loose and wall-papers outside/along the rooms are peeling – considering the hotel was opened two years ago. Sound proofing is not good. A bit noisy especially around 10 pm as shops was closing down.

    Recommended stay in Kota Kinabalu”

    I and my friend stay for a night and we totally satisfied with what we pay. It's very strategic because we can just walk from hotel to Sinsuran Night Market and also Filipino Market. This hotel also provide basic breakfast like Nasi Goreng, Mee Goreng, Baked Beans, Baked Potato, Sausage, Toast and also Podridge. The room also huge, so comfortable to stay here. Maybe the only cons is they lack of plug so you better bring along extension wire if you want to charge all your gadget at the same time. Overall, i love this hotel. I will stay again in this hotel when i come back to Kota Kinabalu again someday.

    Good for short stay”

    Good price, convenient location

    The hotel is a small, budget, and very homely kind of hotel. The receptions were very friendly, to some may seems not professional but to people like me, feels rather homely. Room has a stench probably because of the not too good ventilation, looks really clean, air con working well, quite a few channels to look at. Cannot open the curtain because Warisan square is connected to it and its very close to the opposite side. KK Waterfront is just a road away from Port View Seafood, the seafood is good. Read some reviews on the expensive food but its actually quite worth it for my sis and me. Around RM140 for prawns, shellfish, eggs and vegetables. The food is a lot, we didn't manage to finish. WASTED! There is also a souvenir shop downstairs, people are friendly. There is also a starbucks just downstairs. O! I must mention Rafflesia Spa. I was staying on the 2nd Level of the hotel, the corridor looks boring, but if you open the door with the "Keluar" which means exit sign, there's actually shops there. And Rafflesia is one of them, offering affordable Indonesian massage! You cannot believe how awesome it is. We were quite irritated by the massaeus chasing after us on level 1 to go for their massages, then again, we still need a massge, and we bumped onto Rafflesia. There's a really pretty Malay lady who can speak really good english and she was really friendly to explain the prices to us. The massage was awesome, balinese kind of massage, had a great great sleep after the massage. Only RM75 for an hour of full body massage. Its really worth it for me, because its really expensive in Singapore. So ya, here you go! KK Waterfront.

    Close to attractive places

    For first time visitor, the hotel entrance is not placed facing the main road. But the location is very close to Pasar Kraftangan, Pasar Filipina and Pasar Malam Sinsuran. I checked in 2 hours earlier but was grateful because the hotel did not request for additional charge. No cafe in the hotel. The interior design in the room is very nice and pleasant. From this hotel, it is easy to get into many attractive places in Kota Kinabalu.

    Comfortable bed, close to KK Waterfront, close to Centrepoint Mall

    I had a pleasant stay at the KK Waterfront Hotel. The hotel is centrally located, only a short walk from Centrepoint Mall and just across the road from the Waterfront area, so handy for shopping at the mall, at the various markets and for dining in the high-end restaurants along the ocean. The hotel does not serve breakfast, but there is a Starbucks directly opposite the hotel, which made it easy to grab something to eat in the morning. The room was adequate, too. It included all the necessities, such as hairdryer, water kettle, AC and a comfortable bed. However, the AC was extremely loud, even on a low fan setting, and there were some plumbing issues with the bathroom sink and shower. In addition, if you are a light sleeper, you may want to give this hotel a miss. It is directly in the flight path of planes leaving from/arriving at KKIA and the street noise can be pretty disruptive, too.

    No parking for hotel resident. End up you have to round many times to get parking.and the parking rate is throat cutting. Imagine no matter u wan to just go to piss in hotel and stopped for 10 minutes u need to pay RM6 Which for 3 hour. U may wan to go for out of kota kinabalu after tat but u still need to pay Rm 6 Hotel should provide parking. Or have own ticket. Imagine 1 day RM 30 for parking. Incuding sunday..

    Great Location, simply love it!!!”

    KK Waterfront is just a walking distance, Hotel inside Warisan Square, Centrepoint is just behind!!!

    As a business traveler, location is the most important thing. Hotel is locatef in the heart of kk, rooms are ok, beds are comfy. Only wish my room view is facing the waterfront instead of the inside of a shooping mall, but tht's not a problem though. Waterfront KK is just a 3 minute walk, Starbucks at the doorstep of the hotel, Centrepoint is just a 5 minute walk. The hotel itself is inside warisan square so food is not a problem. I will definitely stay here again.

    Centrally located, Near to the waterfront with various choices of bar, Resonable price for everyone

    This hotel is way far from my expectation,I thought it was a lousy hotel with small space at first. But after checked in I found out it's big for two person! Overall the bed was quite comfortable and they provide 4 pillows for us. The hotel location is really good for those who love to drink, as opposite the hotel is the waterfront bar and restaurant. Remember to bring your own toothbrush, toothpaste, body shampoo and etc. They don't provide you. Overall I'm satisfied with the room, except the bathroom, the water flow out slowly as the drainpipe is stuck? i think? and end up your feet is flooded in your own dirty water.

    Spent 2 nights in this hotel. The hotel is just opened for one year, so it's still new and nice. The staff at counter are polite and friendly. Room is small but clean and tidy to fit for 2 of us. Only see Starbucks out of my window, a sea view will be perfect. The shower is strong and powerful and we had a pleasant stay at KK Waterfront Hotel. The bad things is I can hear people walking and talking at the corridor, maybe my room is near to the lift. The central point just behind the hotel and we can easily get a cab to airport.
