Rooms are small but spotlessly clean and the location is great with lots of places to eat nearby. The staff were so polite and helpful and greeted me warmly every time I came and went. Amazing price for a good quality hotel.

Location & Service”
Location is utmost strategic, Gaya Street which is full of restaurant/ local hawker shop. It's only 10+ min walk to famous tourist spot such as Filipino market, KK seafront and mall. Staffs are very friendly, greet you every time you walk in and out. Room service everytime we went out from room. The staff help us to buy medicine due to my partner fall fever in midnight, without extra charge. Really appreciated that. highly recommenced the hotel and staff, thank you.

it's worth only for the solo travelers like me”
it's was located in the center of the sunday market, so you can open your eyes when the market starts because you can hear the crowded sound. and until the night, you can hear the sound from karaoke whatever. but for the solo travelers like me, it was worth, not bad. but if you're going there with b/g friend or family. please go other places. staff's are kind.

A+ Staff; Superb Cleanliness”
One of my favorite hotels in my SE Asia trip. The location was perfect, right on Gaya Street which is close to all the action. The Sunday market is just outside the hotel. The room was dust free and was cleaned every time we go out! Even twice a day on days we went out twice. You could go out to have lunch and come back to a clean room with new towels etc. Then go out for dinner and they'll clean your room again. It was amazing! I've never seen another hotel do that. They're really particular with cleanliness. Bathroom was PERFECT. Shower was amazing and toiletries were complete. One of my favorite things was the staff!!! I stayed there on the week of my birthday. I didn't tell any of them but they must have seen from my passport. Everyone greeted me Happy Birthday. It was a nice personal touch! I appreciate it. I definitely recommend Mandarin Hotel to everyone!!! I will surely stay again when I visit KK in the future!

Very nice hotel in Kota Kinabaru”
We stayed here for one night. It's our last night in KK, and we had a tour to Weston in the afternoon we checked in. We arrived at Mandarin Hotel at 1 pm and requested for leaving luggage first. Surprisingly, our room was ready so we could have early check-in. This is not routine but I felt we were lucky and we could have a break before our tour. On the next day, our flight was quite early so we needed to check out at around 4 am. The night shift staff was friendly and kindly helped us call a Grab car to the airport. In conclusion, this is a very nice and valuable hotel with clean and comfortable room and friendly staff. We will stay here again when we come to KK again.

Good value for money”
Had a great stay here for 2 days. Staffs are nice and accommodating. We checked in super late like 2am and the staff were just there waiting for us. This hotel indeed is in a great location esp on sundays, there are Street market. Yay! The room is very clean altho a bit small but still good. Their T&B is also nice coz they have bidet and it’s also clean. All in all we had a great stay here.

Excellent Budget Hotel!”
As this is my first solo trip, I wished to find a place that is safer to stay. The hotel is located at the centre of Gaya and I really love the strategic location. Is easy accessible to the famous Hawker centres like Yee Fung laksa, Yu Kee Bak Kut Teh and etc. Moreover, other tourist hotspot like central market, filipino market, Centrepoint mall and Suria mall is all walkable within 10minutes. The room itself is clean and tidy. Certain parts especially the corner of window usually dusty but this hotel is not! I am really impress that the way they maintain the cleanliness of the room. Moreover, all the necessary facilities like hairdryer and safety box are provided. And I love the wifi too! Is fast! Just the water heater may take a while to warm up. Not forget to mention about their services. They do provide free transport to airport. Just book one day ahead with the receptionist. Dun worry, the staffs are very polite and friendly! On the day I check out, they even drop me a goodbye message! What a surprise! If you ask me to rate the hotel and I would like to rate it 10/10. With such a Budget price, the service that they provided is totally excellent! Believe me, you wouldn’t regret if you choose to stay here!

Nice Surprise from an unassuming place”
My stay at this place was really a pleasant surprise! The whole team at this unassuming place is really friendly, helpful and courteous! The place is clean. The location is fantastic! You can easily get a Grab from here to almost everywhere for no more than RM$12. Food is bountiful around this area, and convenient store and supermarket within walking distance. The only thing I don't like in my opinion was the placement position of the A/C fancoil unit in our room. It was like blowing directly on us, even after multiple directional adjustments to the A/C Vane, Fins. But that didn't put us off. Overall this place is still wonderful!

Great location, staff and room ”
Very clean (especially the bathroom which I appreciated). First checked in to a no window room and there was a strong smell of lemon scented cleaner so we requested a room with a window (20RM more and totally worthy it). Staff were courteous and dealt with the request very quickly. New room still had a vague old smell but went away once the air conditioner was on. Bed was super comfortable and room was good size, clean. The location is really great - would recommend for this alone. Everything is close by. One downside was lack of breakfast options but that's a minor complaint. Also let us check in earlier without penalty!
