    Budget hotel for airport transfer”

    Pros: Near to airport, free shuttle bus to the airport, strong WiFi, free car park and strategic location (near to laundry, restaurants, shops) Cons: Small room, noisy (from neighbors and airplane), old building and facilities, no elevator (until level 2- the highest), and TV reception wasn't good

    A plesant stay. Nice small & cosy hotel with good free wifi. I was on one day transit. Located at Tanjung Aru & near to the airport. The only backdraw is the mattress, the spring is kind “hurting” my body. Need to change.

    The water pressure is low and the old bed ached our backs. ”

    Definitely not for old citizens as there were no lifts, only stairs. The staffs are helpful and friendly. I wish they can upgrade their room's comfort, providing new beds and working on the water supply since it is very incovenient to bath with small water.Otherwise, I can give 5 stars for overall performance. The location is strategic, I like it.

    1 night transit stay is ok”

    Water pressure low in the toilet, there is water heater but water is not even warm when shower. Weak wifi. No lift if big luggage will have difficulty, can feel the spring on the bed. It’s a smoke-free hotel but someone smokes at the walkway near the window and we can smell it in our room. Staff is friendly. Upon arrival the driver for free shuttle took an emengency leave and hotel want to call a grab for us but we just call grab ourself and claim from the hotel. Free shuttle provided when going to airport next morning.

    WORST EVER”

    I stayed in room 210. First of all, the aircond, was super old and not functioning. Felt like an old fan blowing away some air. Then the tv - not functioning (surprise). The hot shower? - surprise surprise (not functioning as well). Overall? Its a bad place to spend the night even for rm50.

    Above average”

    This hotel was a good choice for us due to its location near the airport, as we arrived late in KK and had an early flight the next morning. The staff were friendly and helped us to call a Grab after check-out. However, we didn't realize there are only stairs (no elevator). The rooms are also in need of renovation/update (hard bed, shabby curtains and linens, etc).

    Nice”

    Located close to what used to be Terminal 2 KKIA. Small but cosy room. Staffs are friendly and attend to complaints swiftly. Frosted glass for shower/toilet, so if you're not staying alone, going to the loo might feel a bit awkward. There are restaurants and 24 hours convenience store next to the hotel. FREE airport transit. Personally, i've stayed here more than 3x and i have no regrets.

    Best value hotel for short transit near the Kota Kinabalu Airport”

    Given that KKIA has no transit hotel, this hotel is a great option to stay in as it is a newer hotel in the area of Tanjung Aru and provides free airport transfer. In term of inside the room, it has a chandelier and glass cubical toilet. It could be romantic if the bed sheet is brand new (call me a hygiene freak if you want to), there is more room for the chair and hang table.
