    Splendid as always, but.. ”

    Worth the money. Good food. Awesome room

    I've been to every TH Hotel in Malaysia. TH Hotel always my first choice when visiting Kota Kinabalu. The food are great. The room is luxury. The place are quite far from the attraction place and mall in the city but the good point is its far from the city noise. The only let down during my second visit is how the staff at the counter handling me as the return customer. I ask for the extended stay days, the staff said only the expensive are left and ask me to check back tomorrow. So I did, and guess what? no more room available left. The staffs are not even bother follow it up back at me about the room. They even didnt pick up the phone when I tried to follow up about the room availability. I noticed that during that day, there are some vips are coming and there is some event at the hotel and all the staff are busy managing this and that, but that doesn't mean you should treat another customer differently. All customer are important. Even if I did dissapointed during my second visit, I will still returned to this hotel in future.

    price, hospitality and room size

    I thing TH Hotel is the only hotel where you can get room this large and comfortable room with this price at Kota Kinabalu. The room was great clean and spacious. The breakfast is good and the staff was greet. The only problem is the location is quite far from the city center. it will not be a problem is you have your own car. I can see the hotel trying to compensate this with complimentary rides to the city center. I can say i have found my favorite hotel at Kota Kinabalu, will stay here again next time

    Wonderful value for money hotel”

    The room was spacious and exellently maintained. The location was really great and the employees were really helpful

    The hotel was nicely situated. It sits just outside the city center yet still within walking distance to the adventurous. We found it to be convenient especially since we were using rented car for our travel there. Parking is free with easy access to the main roads and that helped us avoid the daily city center traffic jams. Most importantly it lies equidistant to the city center and the airport which is really great. The condition of the hotel was really impressive. For the amount we paid, it was really value for money and underrated. We were a bit anxious initially about the standard but this was immediately dispelled once we got there. The room was spacious and well maintained. The employees were really helpful and friendly. The food was fine for the amount paid. Overall, we had a very good experience there and would definitely recommend the hotel to our family and friends. we are already planning for a visit to Kota Kinabalu using the hotel and hope that the outstanding standard is maintained by the management.

    The room is very clean and everything is in great condition. It is very comfortable to stay in the room with family. Their front desk, receptionist, bell boy and the rest of the staffs were providing great support and assistance during my stay. They are very humble and polite. I would highly recommend to stay in this hotel. I have requested for late check out and surprisingly without no additional charges....No regret and definitely this hotel will be my 1st choice in Kota Kinabalu...

    Big clean Room, friendly staff, city shuttle available each 2 hours.

    We were supposed to spend only 2 nights in TH hotel, finally we spent 7 nights. We were very pleased. Our room is big, clean and comfortable beds. Very big bathroom and a great Shower System. Each day our room was cleaned, even if we have left it in the afternoon, when we came back it was always cleaned. The airport offers a Shuttle to the city each 2 hours (he drop you back also to the Hotel). Very friendly staff. They have even teached me how to prepare decorative things for their Independance day : Hari Merdeka. On Thursday and friday they have a great buffet for dinner, don't miss it. If we go back to Kota Kinabalu, we will stay again at TH hotel.

    The staffs are friendly and helpful. Food offered is good. Rooms are spacious. However, I hope the rooms are contantly maintained because for the last view visits (I regularly sleep here with my family when I visited Kota Kinabalu), I have experienced door were unable to lock (solved with immediate response from the staffs), toilet door have no lock and leaking from water pipe. Overall, I would recommend this hotel especially family with children because of the spacious room and affordability. I do hope the maintenance will improve in future.

    Best experience Ever👍👍👍👍👍”

    We stayed for 3 nights . Went there on last March. We booked 1 suite and 1 deluxe. The suite got bath tub. Kids loves the shower soo much. Suite has a spacious living room. There got 2 TVs. One infront the bed and another in the living room. TV's had a range of basic channels.I had so much good things to talk about especially with the foods and the staff. The breakfast was great especially the ommelete! They cooked the ommelette by order you can choose what do you want them to put in your ommelette. Onions, mushrooms, sausages ( i think it was sausages) and lost more..its just so rich feels like staying there again just for the ommelete😁They got range of beverages from juices to milk to tea and coffee. They got plain water as well. They served a lots of kuih, cereals, local foods like nasi goreng, nasi lemak, bihun and pasta. And they changed the menu everyday😁. So booked TH hotel room the one with breakfast! They got a restaurant on ground floor . The nasi arab was brilliant. The meat was so tender it just fell off from the bone.. The staffs was so accommodating, when we asked if they can get us some cakes and tea to be sent to our room around past 10.30 they still entertain us. Check on their cakes and muffin. I personally love their ice cream cake 😁The sister who helped clean our room was so polite. The lady on the reception was helpful. Everyone was so welcoming in TH hotel. TH hotel got Gym, one small shop downstairs and ATM. Check out the shop because they sells some real pearl based jeweleries and brooch. Parking space is a lot. Just nearby the hotel there are local stalls where you can try local food and the tasty teh tarik cincau. I am a regular in TH hotel😁and I recommend staying in TH hotel 👍👍👍👍👍Thank you TH hotel for the awesome experience😁

    TH Hotel is almost as advertised”

    The room was great, the shuttle service helpful, the staff always came through

    The TH Hotel was pretty excellent overall. The rooms are great, especially for the price. Really big bathroom, nice TV for a movie before a comfortable sleep, super clean, and definitely helpful hotel staff. The only drawback is that they advertise wi-fi which they certainly don't have, and the business center is essentially 2 barely functioning computers. For me that wasn't too big a deal as the internet wasn't really needed.

The lady staff very friendly and humble. Same goes to restaurant staff. Without being asked, he offered help to take our family picture even though that time he was busy cleaning up the table.

    Clean, Shariah-Compliant & Friendly Staff

    I had great experience while staying at the hotel. My room has been upgraded from Superior to Executive (with no extra charges) due to no available rooms as the hotel was quite pack with guests. Despite its location not at the city centre, the hotel provides free shuttle to the city every 2 hours which is very convenient for the guests. We also tried Souq Garden @ TH Hotel and the foods were great! Overall, I would say that this hotel is far much better than the 4 and 5 star hotels I've ever stayed. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommended!

    Very comfortable, spacious room, customer friendly”

    The room itself is like 5 stars hotel with a lot of space and nice layout. We were surprised the first time we stepped into the room because we were expecting less with what we have paid. Since the location is not in the city area (5-10 minutes drive to KK city) and within TH complex, parking is not a problem. There is mini convenience store nearby the check-in counter. Customer service is good in entertaining our request. Breakfast is average, not a lot of variety but considered acceptable with the price we are paying. There is no bath tub or swimming pool provided by the hotel but the shower room is big with ceiling mounted shower-head (which my kids love). The only drawback for me are clogged shower drain (which I cleaned it myself), slightly damaged towels and a bit of stain on the bed comforter. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and I am definitely staying here again.

    Our favorite hotel and staff - will be back!”

    Friendly and professional staff, Islamic environment, beautiful and comfortable rooms and overall design of the hotel

    We loved our stay at TH Hotel! The staff everywhere was sweet and friendly and at the same time very professional. Receptionists gave accurate information about anything we asked about, and they gave us a free upgrade. The shuttle bus driver has been especially helpful and friendly. Farrah from the restaurant is a really sweet girl, and so was everyone else at the hotel. They were great company and made the stay much better. It is nice to be greeted with salam and a smile every all day long:) The best thing about the hotel is the Islamic features, for instance there were dua's in every relevant place in the room and an arrow showing Qibla. Furthermore the hotel is close to the beautiful Sabah State Mosque/Masjid Negeri, and close to the mosque there is market/center where all kinds of islamic things are sold (prayer mats, Hijab etc). We actually liked that the hotel was a bit far from the city center, as the city center is very noisy and stressful, while the hotel is calm and peaceful. Actually city center isn't that far away from the hotel, just about 30 minutes walk. Times Square with a lot of cafeterias, restaurant and shops and a supermarket is at a walking distance of just 10 minutes. Also there is shuttle service from 8-22 every second hour which makes it all easy. The rooms, the view and the bathroom (especially the shower) were great. We really think that the hotel deserves more stars. We hope to be back soon - we will always chose TH Hotels over other hotels in the future.
