    Not Worth For Money and The Hotel Staff is Not Professional !!!”

    The hotel lobby have sofa and table provide for guest to use,but when we come back from outside and want to sit at the sofa and relax we find out that the hotel staff and their friends is occupied all the sofa,they take away the food from outside and eat at the lobby ,they occupied all the sofa and table until midnight cause after they finish the food they play online game with mobile phone,all these facilities should use by the hotel guest and not for the hotel staff!! This is ridiculous and unacceptable!!! Won't stay at this hotel anymore!!!

    Good location, clean hotel”

    The hotel is good value for money. Location is excellent - it is near a popular mall, as well as other eateries. There wasn't a fridge in my room, but there was a communal fridge available near the reception. A water fountain was also made available to guests. I enjoyed my stay very much. However, this hotel is less suited for those who are disabled and require accessibility features such as wheelchair ramps, etc. There is no elevator. If carrying luggage, be prepared to lug it up one flight of stairs.

    Ok: The staff very helpful & kind. The room was clean & quite spacious. Not ok: Only received 3 channel tv to watch. Weird bathroom design. Who want enjoy your partner post-pooping smell in the room LOL. Not convenient to open & close 2 doors to use toilet & shower at the same time. No lift but the staff willing to help carried our luggage. Got construction behind the hotel but its ok as they only working during the day and stop after 6pm.

    Small hotel, not far from Suria shopping mall”

    Walking distance to Suria shopping mall but a bit far from waterfront. Plenty of restaurants and eateries nearby. Couldn't get proper sleep due to the loud sound from the switchboard inside the room. Other than that, just an okay hotel.

    There is one thing that I don't like is the sound from the outside is too noise for me. For example, I can hear the sound of somebody open and close his/her room. I also hear someone do a calling in a room that next to my room. The voice is very loud. But the location of this hotel are the nearest with the Suria Sabah. It is just infront of the hotel. Overall, I love the services, the staff there are very helpful and kind. I would recommend to those who are looking for some place to travel and get rest for a few days.

    LOCATION, PRICE, COMFORTABLE ROOM

    price is reasonable and its quite near to shopping mall. there is mart beside it. but you can hear the guest closing and opening the door sound and the hotel is at the 1st floor meaning you have to carry your luggage all the way to the 1st floor through staircase. there is no lift available. overall is ok

The hotel is also strategically located near the shop with variety of food you can search for. Types of bank can also be found near the hotel so you don't have to worry about insufficient of money. Jesselton point can be reach within walking distance too!! Overall, i give 2 thumbs up for this hotel and is value for money you paid.

    Staff, Cleanliness, Condition of the room

    When I stayed there the hotel had only been in operation for about 3 months so everything was new and functioning. It was very clean and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It's also located just round the corner (about 2 minute walk) from the shopping mall (Suria I think) and it's very close to the port for boats to the islands. Great location and quiet at night. I didn't rate it as high for value for money because other hotels offer free breakfast for the same price. But other than that this hotel is pretty awesome. I would definitely stay here again.

    Spacious clean comfortable room - family friendly indeed”

    Spacious clean comfortable room - family friendly especially those who have toddlers or young kids. Shower room and toilet is spacious, very clean and value for money. There is a common room where you can use the icebox and microwave. However, the downside is the charge for extra bed is quite expensive that costs you RM65 per night. So we had to buy cheap bedding for our children. Also, there is no lift as it is located on the first floor and it is easy to hear noises outside the room but luckily there wasn't so much noises during our stay. Overall, we enjoyed our stay! Thank you Little Gaya!

    Great simple no-fuss hotel”

    Great location at the edge of the CBD so it’s not noisy and still within walking distances to most attraction. Nice fruit shop and supermarket within the same block. Room (deluxe king) was simple, spacious and clean. Staff were helpful and accomodated our needs for luggage storage. A warning for those with mobility issues as the hotel, which is on the second floor of shophouses, is only accessible via a flight of stairs.

    Good Location, Disappointing Staff”

    I honestly didn't expect much from a windowless room. Just booked a few nights to go diving nearby at Sunny Reef's. In the first night, I thought one of the other guests was loudly playing some ego-shooter game, so I tried to bear it, up to 3:00 AM... The next day I realized it was the staff playing on their cellphones. After I asked them to turn down the volume, it was no problem anymore, but they seem completely wasted and dont't even try to look you in the eyes or smile. The room however was clean, including the shower. Roomservice was good and check-in and check-out were flawless and quick. Expect them to ask you for tourism tax payment on arrival.
