        Good Hotel, Good Location, Being Renovated”

        Sandakan Hotel is being renovated and just in time. It is a good hotel for the price but a few things are (bathrooms in particular) worn out and need upgrading. There was some problem when I checked in and I compliment the staff on fixing it quickly and to my advantage. Overall: good wifi, clean rooms, good breakfast and good coffee, good location - quieter than in town but only 5 minutes walk

        The hotel was good, comfortable bed and pillow, shower was great and the breakfast was delicious. The only down side is the place was in a ghost town which not many people there. At 5pm, many shop already start to close and you practically can dance on the street. Not many attractive places nearby. Nevertheless Grab was easy to get.

        It was a good stay”

        It's far from the airport because it's in the city by the shore but easy to get transport through the grab app. We were allowed to check in early because the room was ready. It has what you expect of a hotel room, towels, soap, shampoo, tea and coffee. Came to Sandakan to rest and glad I picked Sandakan Hotel. They had fox movies so we stayed in the room during the day because the weather was too hot. Breakfast was RM12 per adult which is cheap and it was good. They have a coffee machine and a chef to cook you eggs the way you like them. Overall it was a very nice place to stay and the mall as well as eateries are within walking distance.

        Best value hotel in Sandakan ”

        Lovely big clean room with a view over Sandakan of the ocean. Friendly and helpful staff. Very honest as well. I left my charger and headphones in the room and they returned them to me before I even new I'd forgotten them. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants something more than a hostel at a fair price.

        One of the best buffet breakfast spreads in Malaysia”

        Pros - Spacious rooms with comfortable beds - Generous breakfast buffet spread, with egg, crepes and waffles live counters. Decent options for vegetarians as well - Car park available behind the hotel complex, on an otherwise crowded and cramped street - Great location. Walking distance from waterfront area. Lots of local eateries and bakeries nearby! - We ended up coming back to their restaurant for breakfast buffet, the day after checking out. Cons - There were no porters available later in the evening when we checked in

        There's run down and then there's falling apart”

        I booked this based on location and value and so I was quite prepared for it to be run down. Unfortunately that's an understatement. The door in the bathroom was falling apart and the shower curtain was so disgusting I wouldn't let my kids near the bath. The most frustrating thing though was something that costs nothing - service. I booked a deluxe family room with two double beds but on arrival was told there wasn't one available as they'd had some maintenance issue. So they downgraded me to a normal deluxe room with a king bed and a foldaway bed. Given that this is a cheaper room with less sleeping space it simply isn't ok to try and fob me off with this room type. Unfortunately it took some discussion before they finally accommodated me in the room type I'd originally booked. Very poor service.
