a fantastic experience”

clean, good service, quiet location

i travelled in a group of 5 and thus we booked the family room. ample space for all of us to stay in comfortably for 4 nights. place was quiet at night despite the clubs and bars located in the vicinity. there is also a convenience store next door. the hotel staff were extremely hospitable, catering to our special requests, helping us get around KK and even going out of their way to arrange transport for us in several instances. excellent service overall! the manja cafe is also a convenient place to grab a quick, decent bite for a reasonable price. only problem (rather trivial to us) is its location on the fringe of the city and by the motorway. however, we managed to get around by foot as the town was small in size (you can get from end to end in 30min of brisk walk). furthermore, taxis are well-priced. a good overall experience with manja hotel, will definitely recommend it.

Very Responsible and committed customer oriented

Lovely room and very much comfortable, consider as less is more and spacious rooms. The customer service is top notch, with an honest, and friendly and helpful staff. They even post laju my laptop that i left in the rooms in a week time as immediate as possible from KK to my hometown. I would give this hotel a 5 start for its customer oriented values. Well done Manja Hotel, Indeed a worthwhile to stay and i really have a good nite sleep in this hotel. Well done. quite comfortable and love the spacious bathroom

Worth the price and accesible”

Manja Hotel is worth the price especially for its proximity to Imago Shopping Mall. The included free airport transfer is also a great convenience. Being located on the inside of KK Times Square adds a feeling of security and intimacy. The place is a bit aged and it shows in some of their equipment but compensated by the comfort and tranquility of the stay. Staff are very hospitable and helpful. Overall, staying here is very nice with convenience stores and a mall near adding convenience.

Nice, clean, comfort and great location ”

Cottage, overall was thumbs up

It was further drive down from mount Kinabalu about an hour, about 5km before there was no street light available so you may want to ensure your car is in good condition for traveling far. The hotel located inside tea plantation and another 2 km going in from the main road. They have in total 4 cottage consist of 4 rooms each cottage, they also have long house style suitable for group booking. Check in counter located nearest to one of function room and we were given the room just beside the venue which unfortunately there was on going function with people doing karaoke until quiet late. Did a request to the lady at the counter possibility of changing the room to the area farthest down as the music was so loud and we have 6 years old who need to sleep after a long journey however it was rejected. Therefore we have no choice bu to accept it and she mentioned function will be finish by 10pm max. Around 12midnight we did not see anything stop as the music getting louder, my husband asking to change the water kettle which are not working and there is a person in charge who initiative offer us to change the room as the event will take longer than expected, she apologize for the inconvenience, at first I was thinking a hassle to move our things however on second thought it was a worth decision to move, she even extend late check out for us the next day. It was a worth stay.. next day with a smell of morning dew, fresh green from the tea plant and mount Kinabalu beautiful view just at your door step, I would definitely highly recommend this one.

Excellent hotel for short-term stay.”

Clean, modern, great location.

Our stay was very satisfactory. Our room was ready on time, it was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was huge, with modern fittings and slate/tile floor. The bed was comfy, if a little firm, and all facilities - TV, fridge, kettle etc, worked. The common areas of the hotel were clean and well-kept. The hotel is located at KK Times Square, equidistant from Sutera harbour marina and the centre of KK town. There is a lot of construction going on both sides of KK Times Square but this didn't affect us after 5pm. KK Times Square has many nice restaurants and bars, as well as several quick-food eateries and an Orange Convenience Store, so we had a lot of choice for meals. (The Manja doesn't have a food?beverage service.) It is just a 10 minute walk, or 15RM taxi ride into town.

Strong showers, Great bars just downstairs and comfortable beds

As usual, Manja Hotel exceeds the expectations of anyone who is paying for that price. The showers are a welcoming treat after a long day of meetings and appointments. With the easy access to the bars, having a drink or two and possibility of chatting up a few new friends is always there.

Good location.”

Located next to Imago Shopping Mall and just about 10 mins drive from the airport. Manja Café next to the hotel provides simple local cuisine. Room is clean and bed is comfortable. Drinking water is provided using water dispenser outside the room. WiFi is a bit slow. Be reminded that they take deposit of RM 100 but refunded upon check out. Do bring enough cash for this purpose.

Good stay. Worth to try!”

I've request for early check in but did not manage to get it. The room I got a bit dim, one of the light in the room and the bathroom is not functioning. Mineral water not prepared in the room (maybe the housekeeping rushing to clean up the room for me coz I've waiting at the lobby). When I booked in agoda, stated parking is available (got the sign of parking at column for facilities offered). But when I reach hotel only know that parking is not available, so have to park at KK Times Square area (paid, FOC from 10pm-6am) or Imago Shopping Mall (FOC) Apart from that, everything else is nice; the location near to the newest shopping mall (walking distance), room and bathroom is spacious, small fridge inside the room, price is acceptable (I booked through agoda and the price is included airport transfer, which is very affordable), have cafe beside the hotel (not manage to try the food yet but they did offer for room service as well), very homey and comfortable.

Budget goodness”

Location, comfort, budget

Location: it is near imago mall, not exactly central but still in town. Easy to find food and drinks. Cleanliness: still new, the room is fairly clean and quite spacious. I like the bedding.for a budget hotel. It has substance and it doesn't feel like I'm lying on a cheap mattress. It has WiFi in the room so great. Food:NA. as I didn't book a room with breakfast. Safety: this is probably my only biggest gripe. This 'hotel' is actually a collection of a few shophouse lots upstairs. Normally in a hotel, one would go to lobby and then adjourn to rooms via hotel lobby elevator. But in this hotel, u have to get OUT of hotel lobby. They are using shophouse lots as rooms so one will share the same public elevator to other shophouse to adjourn to your room. I feel that in this regards it lacks privacy and anyone from public can use thr elevator, can walk on the corridor outside your room. Scary if you're a girl or even a guy. Someone creepy could follow you and attack you. Otherwise the stay was pleasant. Just wished they could beef up security.

If you need a place to just wash up & sleep after a day full of activities then this is the hotel for you. Manja Hotel please check your rooms necessities like water pressure, burned out light bulbs etc before your guests arrives. It makes the stay unpleasant when something is not working eg: water pressure suddenly were cut off during shower time. Your staffs however are excellent for a budget hotel. They are helpful, friendly & very promptly responded when a complaint was made. Thank you Zaidi & Fatma & the rest ( maintenance man & cleaning lady - sorry i didn't get their names )

Comfortable room, clean and spacious

I really enjoy staying there and would definitely visit the hotel in future. There is lift to ease the passage to the hotel room. The room is so comfortable, huge with new design. Clean washroom and overall no foul smell like most of the hotels. My room was covered with glass window so I can enjoy the view at night, not in the morning as others may peek into the room. There is breakfast included which is convenient for family with young children as I could get them fed before going out for shopping. As I aware they provide shuttle bus to airport too. Definitely the best hotels I had in KK with the price I paid, I had been staying at approximately 10 hotels in the areas and this is the best.

It' s a new hotel and very clean. Car park is provided especially at the basement. We are enroute to Shenzhen via Hong Kong international airport so we leave our car at the basement. The basement parking are ample not to worry, it's safe. The hotel is near to the main shopping area like centrepoint Kota Kinabalu and other shopping centre. Nearby the hotel there is convenient 24 hour store. Lastly they are a few night club nearby.
