                  Central locations, very convienence acccess to all facilities,

                  This is not my first time staying at this hotel. The rooms is clean and provide me with the basic needs. The staff always serve with a smile which already make your day. Its is located in the heart of Kota Kinabalu where you can access to all facilities such as shopping, eateries, pub, transportations, etc.. Strongly recommeded to friend who plan a trip to K.K.

                  Convienient location in city center

                  It's a nice, cosy hotel on a busy street in Kota Kinabalu town center. Room was not too big, nor too small, just fine for a single traveller. Also, very clean and in good shape. One big drawback was thet they don't have wifi internet. They also don't serve breakfast. Another peculiarity was that room's walk in price was significantly lower compared to Agoda's one.

                  good location, clean and comfortable rooms, reasonably cheap

                  rooms are too small to accommodate 3 adults.(3 of us stayed in 1 room with twin beds + an extra thin old poly foam mattress...on the limited spaced floor + 2 bedsheets/1 acting as a blanket...eeek! but there were 2 pillows.) The hotel should not have publicised that they have rooms with + extra beds.

                  Great location

                  We have booked 3 rooms in total but only 2 rooms are reserved. Luckily, they got a spare room so can quickly arrange another room for us but on a different floor. Staff were not that friendly, and seem to be impatient when asking about the service/direction. It is located on the main road, so rather difficult to find parking space nearby. Great location with convenience shop, bars, restaurants and body massage right next to the hotel. Rooms are clean but small. Overall it was okay, but I think you can easily get a better service with similar price.

                  Location is the best coz this hotel located in the town centre, walking distance to local restaurants and shopping malls. However, the room size is too small and the staff wont get ready the extra bed for you, they will simply put the mattress in the room, then you have to prepare for yourself.

In the middle of the nite someone knocked my door say they have new toilet paper for my room. Noone help with the luaggage , staffs just sit there in the sofa using their phones or staring at me moving my luggage myself. But its not expensive so its a fair choice if u wanna stay in the city.

                  nice cmfort budget but not sound proof”

                  friend staffs, location, bed.

                  The location was great as it nearby all good food places, major shopping mall and easy access to nearby pubs. The downside was the room not sound proof, we can heard a scooter passed by as if we just beside the street.

                  booked a triple room....but learnt on checking in that all rooms are small and have sleeping beds for 2 only: twins and doubles. The "extra" bed is a "soft foam thin mattress laid on the floor with an extra pillow...and 2 bedsheets... 1 of which acts as a blanket(was told) so..... which means, those who want to book a triple room should be aware of this.
