Charming hotel & friendly staff”
Although this hotel is not the most modern in town it does have a very charming atmosphere, big rooms with comfortable bed, the best rooftop cocktail bar in town and very friendly staff. (when they found out that I paid too much for the room after leaving they called me and insisted to bring me the money at the airport - honest and great service!!)
Breakfast minimal, room needs updating”
Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are out dated and needs maintenance (e.g. tub wobbled and had a huge gap between the wall). Breakfast was served in the cafe next door and offered 3 basic options that don't change (nasi lemak, croissant or french toast), not very flexible. Ate elsewhere for some mornings for variety. Location was great and walkable. Bus to Sepilok was right across the street (departs at 9am daily).
This place is great. 100% will stay here when next in Sandakan. The roof restaurant and bar is fantastic. A touch overpriced, but the view and the food was very good. The room itself though was very inexpensive so it balanced out :) Thank you Nak! Love love the vibe.
Good Location and Value for money”
Location is at exactly in the town, good location. Friendly and helpful staffs. Room facilities need to be improved,(eg, room's lights is a bit of dark) others all are above average, for the money value you pay. Breakfast is good as well
Only spent a night here but this hotel was ideal for us. Staff were super friendly and helpful when asked if we could extend our stay for a few hours past check out due to flights. Breakfast in cafe next door was tasty and offered both Asian and western options. As the town is so small the location was within walking distance to everything. The interior in the rooms looked a bit tired and could do with updating but we didn’t spend that much time in our room anyway. Check out the fantastic views from the rooftop bar and enjoyed the happy hour cocktails whilst watching the sunset over the bay. Would recommend getting a Grab taxi to Sim Sim just outside town to the local fish restaurants in the evening and also Kim Fung food market for local Chinese street food.
Very interesting room, with diagonal windows, a view of the Sulu Sea, bamboo shades, incredibly comfortable bed and pillows with nice bedding, great lighting - very stylish in a Asian mid-century way. Great food in the rooftop restaurant, including excellent cocktails, and also excellent Kopitiam next door. We originally planned a one night stay, but I really wanted a second night for the bed, great food and a chance to visit Agnes Keith House, a definite do not miss.
Strategic place near with harbour mall . nice hotel. But I think A/C need to replace a new one.. Overall is OK. Will come again.. Thank you nak hotel. Also staff yg peramah DAN penyabar.. Tq guys till we meet again :)
Hotel with nice decorations ”
The hotel was delightful and the decor is so pretty! The location is quite far from activities and it was very expensive to take cab to travel. few restaurants near the hotel, Nak Hotel's restaurant was great and I really enjoy my meals there. Definitely would stay at the hotel again.
the room initially assign was in very bad condition, the toilet bowl cannot flush, light bulb spoiled, TV cannot see anything. after complaint to lobby, they change the room for us. the service is the very good in fact. we left something at the restaurant, they manage to keep for us.
Awesome central location”
Hotel was located 5 minutes walk away from stretch of eateries next to the beach, Bus terminal was just across the road from the hotel and there were busses going to almost anywhere from there. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooftop bar was great as well.
Excellent Hotel for the Price!”
I have to say, that after 3 months of travelling in SE Asia, this has been my favorite hotel. Excellent design, clean, huge rooms, and a BATHTUB! One downside is that there is not WiFi in the rooms. You have to go to the lobby and even there it is inconsistent. But it is a super old building and they cant install the routers to work in the rooms. I understand that. The rooftop patio is amazing and the breakfast not too bad. You also get two free drinks too!
Old Charm Hotel”
it is indeed an old hotel. but the rooms been refurbished with minimalist and retro design. small, simple but spacious. love the old charm feling! there's even bathtub eventhough it's a small one. no wi-fi in the room due to its design of old building. it's only available at the restaurant on the top floor and everyone's gonna love this place. it's lovely! set breakfast (only 2 options though) is served here. it's good and comes with great coffee. other foods here is also great but the service is a bit slow.
Don't get fool with the Exterior”
From outside, the hotel looks old with 60's architecture. The lobby, small corridor and lift also give a 60's feeling. But the room has been refurbished with retro and minimalist design. The red wall just goes nicely with the wooden floor. It's really nice! Small but still spacious. The gem of this hotel is the rooftop restaurant and bar. It's amazing with great view of the town and sea. And the place to catch the sunset and enjoy the fresh sea breeze. Food is also not bad (try chilli cheese fries with salsa sauce) here but the menus are limited and the service is a little bit slow. Staffs are really friendly and helpful. The hotel also has parking lot.
hotel location is in the heart of sandakan town. Next to the market which offer cheap seafood. Tell you seafood in sandakan are cheaper than pork. Hotel is new with good room and the buffet breakfast is excellent which offer varieties of asia food.
Room was large and clean, and had very nice interior deco. The town center, where the hotel is located, seemed a bit on the 'rough' side, but the hotel locks its doors regularly. Location is perfect as it is possible to walk to other parts of the town including the waterfront while the bus station to Sepilok is just a minute's walk away. The best part is the rooftop restaurant, Ba Lin. The American breakfast was fresh, non greasy and perfectly done. The ala carte menu was equally excellent at reasonable prices - no need to eat anywhere else for lunch or breakfast. The only snag is the lack of wifi in the room but wifi is available in the lobby and in the restaurant. Will stay here again.
Decent hotel in a good location”
This hotel is probably the best in Sandakan, it's in a good location, with a good standard. The rooms are comfortable with a decent shower area. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very good, as is the restaurant generally, though a little expensive, especially for beer.
Decent hotel in a good location”
This hotel is in a very good location for Sandakan town centre and the waterfront restaurants. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable with TV that show a range of channels including sports. The breakfast provided is very good. The restaurant is good for eating at other times of the day, though a little expensive.
Atmospheric and comfortable hotel”
The room was very comfortable with a very comfortable bed and good quality shower facilities. The room was clean and everything worked and the TV had a range of channels including a film channel. The hotel was well located for the town and the waterfront. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was rather expensive, but the food was very good. Unfortunately we had to miss the breakfast due to an early flight, but staff were helpful in directing us to an early taxi.
the nak is a comfortable and atmospheric hotel. the rooms have comfortable beds and good amenities. the shower was hot and the television service good. we were pleased to be able to received the sports channel and watch the football. breakfast was very good - we had the banana pancake, which was very tasty. the hotel was well positioned in the town.
Cheap, cheerful and good location”
Really enjoyed the Nak, looks a little dated on the outside but clean, nice and spacious on the inside. Great price, central location and a joy to stay at. Staff helpful, bar/cafe on the roof was great. Free wifi on roof too!
