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
Hi, Elisa! Thanks for sharing your experience and valuable feedback with us. We will try our best to give an awesome experience on your next stay. Regards, Ritesh
Worth of staying. Near to the airport. ”
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.
Thank you so much for the positive rating, Johan! Thank you for sharing this with us, we’ve duly noted your feedback and we’ll strive for a better experience in the future. Regards, Chetan
Im very happy with the hotel it was nice place to stay even though the hotel look old (not 100% clean) but satisfied with the facilities. No smells and tidy. Me and my spouse stay one night. Near airport and Tg.Aru beach.
Hi, Geraldine! Happy to hear that you loved our services. We’re amazing just because of amazing guests like you. We look forward to serving you again:) Regards, Chetan
Got room no 210. Very small. Bed need to change. Totally unstasified. Not value for money
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.
Hey Tan, it seems that you aren’t completely satisfied with our services. Be assured, we’ve marked a note of this issue and we’ll strive to ensure better services further. Regards, Barbara
Close to airport”
This was a stay of convenience for an overnight airport transfer. The room was clean and the free airport shuttle was ideal. However the wifi didnt work, and the toilet flush didnt refill. Minor issues
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.
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).
Hi, Sydney! Thanks for spending your valuable time to write the review. Feedback and suggestions of our valued guest like you always motivate us to improve our services further. Regards, Ritesh
Near to airport where they provide free shuttle service. However the room was not well maintained. A bit dusty, torn wallpaper, no toilet pipe or hose, slow water pressure. Solat space was bit limited.
My room did not have window. But the hotel is near airport and might be helpful to block the noise.
Room was ok altough wifi connection was on and off .. room and bathroom is being cleaned evryday .. area is good since there are local stores and resto down stairs.. if needed to go to kk centre just take grab which is much cheaper
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.
Hotel is located far from town , but have transports with a fee to town , the surrounding shops are able to get basic goods, generally peaceful and quiet, but the airplane which pass through could be a little disturbing at times.
Staff very helpfull & near to airasia airport”
Pleasant stay..i arrived at nite in Kota Kinabalu n d staff fetching us from d airport..eventho the hotel doesnt have lift,its ok but sadly no bell boy helping us to carry our bag.overall is ok as the room is clean,the facility is working,hotel surrounded by restaurant n market.if u come by car,this is d nice place to stay.near to tanjung aru beach,tanjung aru plaza,15mins to sholping mall (by car)..quiete place,good for sleeping...=)..would recommended to all
very friendly hotel owner”
mainly because the hotel owners, a married couple who were very friendly. the first room we had was rather small and the aircond was not functioning so well so they moved us to a family room with no extra charge and that room was huge with 5 beds. breakfast was great and they even came to chat us up and suggested great places to visit in KK. great experience!
Convenient for transit”
It locates close to the airport and the hotel has airport shuttle for free of charge. The room is a bit small but clean and good enough. Internet connection was unstable and had to go out of the room to get better connection. This is the only minus point in this hotel.
very great value for people who will need to catch an early flight or late flight!close to the airport,and they also provide free pick up service from 5am!for the last day in your trip,you can choose to stay here and visit best beach in KK!!
