      This is vintage hotel, been there since 1966.”
      Combination of old and modern certainly a good idea however need some improvement on the Wi-Fi access on each floor and room. And a schedule pest control would be nice too, there is cockroach wondering around in the toilet during night time, there is bathtub in the room but the "water stopper" is not provided, so in other words you're not allowed to used it Yes..No? The only good thing about this hotel is the restaurant below. Contemporary and classy. The food is nice, the ambience simply brings you back to the late 60's and 70's.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Price, Ceanliness, Room Design
      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!

      Don't get fool with the Exterior”
      Rooftop Restaurant and Bar
      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.

      Large room, nice deco, best rooftop restaurant
      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.

      The hotel is located within walking distance to the waterfront. It was easy to get to many nearby eateries and shops. The room was clean and comfortable. I had an excellent view of the sea from my room window. The rooftop restaurant afforded a panoramic view of the city. A good vantage point to watch the fireworks on New Year's eve. However, the items on the menu were expensive. The staff helped to book a Grab car to the airport which was cheaper than the local taxis. Wifi was limited, but why spend time on the internet when Sandakan has a lot to offer ?Will consider returning in the future.
