        Very old and lousy hotel and it can ruin your mood. You better stay at other hotel.”

        When I booked a hotel through Agoda, It is very rare for me to get an awful hotel. La Viva hotel is such an awful hotel. First of all, this is an old hotel. Meaning that all the hotel building, bed are old. I start with the hotel building. It is not clean with a cigarette smell at the hallway. This hotel didn't have a lift and if you got a room at 4th floor and carry heavy bag, then good luck to you. When I open the room, the smell is bad because it is an old hotel. I was so shocked when I see a cockroach in my room. To my surprise, the bed is suppose to be king size but the mattress is queen size. It looks very ugly. My stay at La Viva is not a pleasant experience. So, if you need to stay in Kota Kinabalu, please choose another hotel.

        Quite good place to stay but.. ”

        Let me give a short review on this. Pro. 1. Staff is friendly 2. The hotel was placed on a very strategic place. There is a big mall nearby and food court. Cons. 1.The cleanliness doesn't meet my requirements. I found stains on my room's floor and my bedsheet. 3. The water does not strong enough. 4. Amount of deposit too high. That's all thanks

        Good Location. Thats all.”

        I travel a lot. And this hotel is below average. First, my room at 5th floor and no lift. Tiring to go up and down with luggage after having a long day. In the room, aircond cover missing, remote a/c and tv not provided, towel dirty and smelly, thankfully i bring my own, bed sheet have holes, and blanket itchy. And the toilet, no hot water, no bath gel, no mirror for the whole floor including own room. Good thing, the location is good. And the price for the room also cheap. But I dont mind paying more rather than ended up here. This is my honest review. Thank you for the stay tho.

        Strategic location, good staff but poor cleanlines”

        Located at centre of city. East to find food and transportation. I mistakenly put the wrong date on the book data but staff was really negotiable and allowed me to stay. 2/5 on the cleanliness. Blanket n pillow smell bad. No kettle or mineral water provided.. paid rm60 per night. maybe thats what i got for what i paid.

        i was stay in the room of 1st floor which is same floor as the reception desk. That was not really good because there was the place where all the air cond machine was outside the room and i can clearly heard the sound when the machine was functioning. BUt that is the only thing that was not good enough...Everything apart from that was good and fine.

        i notify agoda about the time that i will check in early.. that will be at 5-6 am.. i arrive at 5.39 am.. and premise didnt let me check in because the room that i book was have a customer. and i will be permitted to check in only at 12.00 pm. if i know early about the time, maybe i will find another solution or, the La viva hotel should give me a temporary room for me to rest a bit after my long 12 hour on bus from semporna to kota kinabalu, because its not my fault, in the booking form, i've already notify them about the time i was expected to arrive.. sadly, i was forced to book another room by walk in considering that i have no place to go rather than check in in the la viva hotel..

        The hotel staff were very helpful. When we haven't bought the adapter yet, they allow us to charge our phone to their computer. There's just a problem with their WiFi on the fourth floor and no elevator also. The location is ideal since it's very accessible and near tourist attractions.

        The staff was very friendly and nice during the check-in but the room has a few issues. I didnt approach the staff as I was very tired after checking in at 11pm. - Room has strong cigaratte smell, even the towels on the bed smells like one too - Both of the pillows are very smelly, like it has not washed for a long time. (I tried both side of the pillow). Pardon me, if I expect too much for what I paid...

        Unexpectedly old, poorly maintained hotel: worst stay and nightmare ”

        Single room with private bathroom Pros: Located near central market KK, and Center Point Mall, which is considered as ideal. Cons: -Mind your safety as the area is very quiet during night time. And I was told by a Grab driver that area was somehow dangerous at night. However, i was safe and not being harassed during the two nights’ stay. -Room condition was poorly maintained, far different from pictures. Room was dark and somehow smelly. -Soundproofing was lousy, you can almost clearly hear the person chatting next to your room and walkway. -Light bulb was not functioning during first night stay. When I told the staff on duty, he said they do not have spare light bulb right now, he will arrange for next day. However next day morning before i went out, I asked a lady about this and she wasn’t aware about this. My light bulb was replaced in the evening despite initially the guy told me it would be replaced in morning. -Bed bugsssss with their bedsheet!! Found a few bites on my legs after first night and I told myself perhaps I got bitten by mosquitoes. However, the bite was very itchy, got swollen up (and in the end it persisted for more than 1 week).
