      Great location, friendly staff and value for money

      We have enjoyed our stay at little gaya hotel. Staff were very attentive and we are also very pleased with the location.. A stone throw away to nearby mall and other eateries. The only improvement that I like to suggest is the breakfast option. I will choose back little gaya if I stay in kk 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!

      Clean room, perfect to use as a base for exploring the city”

      We booked this hotel as it is very close to Jessleton pier and we planned to take boat trips over to the islands. The hotel was very clean and staff were friendly. The room was cosy but was big enough to use as a base for exploring. This hotel is slightly further from the waterfront area however we were still able to walk (or jump in a cheap taxi) to most parts of the city. I would definitely recommend Little Gaya to those looking for somewhere to rest after a long day exploring.

      Staff was friendly. Try their best to attend to my request. Place is clean and well maintain. However, this review is only for this one night stay. When I re-check in to another room, the room was not clean, sticky stain on floor and food stain on duvet. Staff is still attentive n friendly to change another room but this room do not look new like the first room. Probably this room is more often used and with a bad chair(not yet broken). Is a nice hotel, so hopefully the management will keep all room well maintain and btw, the room size vary for same room type n price (can't confirm, did not measure with tools)

      The hotel is centrally located, in happening gaya street, 50 meter from Suria Shopping Complex, walking distance to jetty. Hotel is very new, thus its very nice. Sound proof can be better, and despite as a non smoking hotel, there is some smell of cigarette from time to time

      Location, Room cleanliness, Comfort

      The room I booked comes with King size bed and it is large and comfortable. Do not expect the hotel to come with much or any other amenities, i.e. restaurant, bar, services. There are lots of F&B services, convenience stores as well as recreational services within 5 minutes walking distance. After all you are not going to spend your day in the room watching TV. And if you are a business traveller like me or for staying here for vacation, what this room has to offer will be more than enough.

      Cosy Little Gem”

      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.

      Nice Rooms & Ambiance. Great Location”

      Pros: Nice comfortable & clean rooms. The hotel ambiance is really classy and nice. The location is superb and right next to the Suria Sabah mall as well as close to the jetty. Lots of restaurants nearby and a convinience store is just at the end of the block. Cons: Carpark is not free on weekdays & saturday. It is public parking so you need to fight for your life to get a parking spot. Park at your own risk as the area gets quiet at night and no secuity in the public parking area.The hotel price is a bit higher than other hotels in the area but the location could be the reason for the steep price. Wifi was intermittent and kept on disconnecting.

      Littel gem on Gaya Street BUT is very noisy”

      The hotel is strategically located on Gaya Street. It is 5 mins walk to Suria Mall and there are groceries shops, eateries and 24 hours polyclinic nearby, very convenient place. We have checked into the King Size room. The room is spacious and comfortable. The only thing that we are not satisfied is the noise from the pub nearby. It is very noisy at night till 3-4am in the morning. We could hear the music all night long and could hardly get into sleep. Price wise is not cheap and we most likely will not stay at this hotel again due to the loud noise.

      Our stay at Little Gaya was fairly decent for its price of RM180 a night. Toiletries provided but not very useful. Television available, but barely watchable due to the bad connection or something. However, room was clean, staff were helpful, and most importantly for us the hotel was a 5min walk to Jesselton point harbour. So the experience was decent, but would not return unless several improvements are made.

      clean, big room, location

      Location is nice since its off away from Gaya street so its quiet. Yet you can walk to restaurants and bars. Rooms are a good size. Modern. The only off thing is that the toilet has a glass door that opens to the room. no separation for restroom and bedroom. So it you are self-conscious about doing number 2 while someone is in the room it may be an issue.

      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.
