This is "It"!”

Don't hesitate to book your nights here. If you are a picky budget traveller like me, Megah D'Aru is your best choice to stay at Tanjung Aru. Prompt & friendly customer service. Charming & clean environment. Fast & free airport transfer. You can even find almost anything nearby; church, best beach, food, groceries, toiletries, laundry, lotteries....lol. They even got me an excellecent car rental. Impressive!!

free airport transfer, service with a smile and quick check in

Can only say good things about Megah D'Aru. The check in was done in under one minute and with a smile, the room was surprisingly spacious, very clean and comfortable - even with a view towards the ocean. It had 2 chairs and a table as well as a work desk with an additional chair. It was very quiet. The early morning transfer to the airport was easy and on time. Much appreciated. They even arranged a take away breakfast for us. There are plenty of local restaurants around the hotel.

as always megah d'aru is my favourite hotel when i transit at kota kinabalu. it's close to the terminal 2(aka airasia terminal), it's about 5 min drive only. but if you were to take a cab over to any hotel in town, it costs rm20-30. this hotel provides free airport transfer. so if you are no in kk for few days travelling. this hotel offers the best in transfer, room size, price and comfort.

we always stay in Megah D Aru for transit because they provide free airport pick up service.The staff are very polite and friendly.They prepare the take away breakfast for early check out . Although the hotel is quite old but they still maintain it well. The only thing need to improve is to change the pillow case because it look old and dirty.

Modest transit staycation.. Poingka 👍”

Easy Convenient Discreet

A stop-over staycation and close to all the convenient location. Accesibilities are easily found and will be a very suitable for transit or frequent flyers as it's really that close to airport terminal. Good for locals who usually have a long nights out and would like a humble sleep over for a night or two, this is one of the hotel to be at. As for it's hotel condition, they could be better but what can you expect frm a 2stars hotel? It's good enuf for a short stay. Everything else r ok, except the shower is leaking in our room (307). But thts nt our main concern as we had a considerably pleasant stay there. Ouh it was raining quite heavily in the morning, but sleeps aren't disturb that much. Breakfast wise, it's a very simple breakfast, one tht u could diy at the confort of ur home or any local restaurants. Then again, we ate a lot as others are still in their lala land coz it was raining the night b4? Haha Anyway, check in n check out with booking by agoda are very smooth and staffs are pretty friendly. Good customer service. Overall, i would recommend this hotel to get themselves a facelift but remain its humble price. Hehe Would come back if there's no other place to check out next time... Have fun staying at Megah D'Aru Hotel. 👍😏

Free airport transfers to and from

The hotel is very clean with nice rooms. The staff are very helpful. It is only a short taxi ride to downtown Kota Kinabalu and the hotel helped us with that too. We were leaving very early the next morning and we were given a packed breakfast with drinks. If you have to stay a night in K.K because of flight connections this is a very good hotel to stay in.

Close to airport for convenient stopover.”

1. Good location with only 5 minutes drive to the airport. 2. Many restaurants, coffee shops and food stalls around the area and some are opened 24 hours. 3. Comfortable and clean beds.

I found my stay at Megah D'Aru Hotel very pleasant and comfortable. The hotel is located near the airport and convenient for me to catch an early morning flight. Airport transfer was provided which was a cost saving for us. One shortcoming was when we arrived at the airport on our arrival, there was no body to meet us although I did call them up one day earlier to inform/confirm my arrival time/flight No. I expect some one to meet us with a play card or a hotel vehicle waiting for us at the airport. There was none until we called up the hotel then they sent a van to pick us up. What about if we didn't have the hotel phone No. or we did not know what to do. The transfer to the airport was punctual. As our flight was early in the morning, they provided a simple packed breakfast for us which was a plus.

convenient, near to airport, affordable

though it's quite far from the city proper, the hotel is near the airport. in fact, you can just walk to the airport if you have enough time. It's also near Tanjung Aru (beach). The downside is that we couldn't connect to the internet when we were inside our room. We needed to stay at the lobby to be able to go online. Our room came with free breakfast for 3 people. It's budget friendly. :)

The stay at Megah D'Aru hotel is quite pleasant. The room is not very nice but they have great service. They offer free airport transfer even at 4am in the morning! As we had breakfast included for our room and because our flight is too early for breakfast time, they helped to pack breakfast for us as well! The massage at the spa downstairs was also great.
