Acceptable
The hotel is a bit run down, but for its price and location, it is actually pretty good. Morning market is just located outside so look out for it!

Clean & Beutiful Interior
Easy to access, near local attraction, 24 hour customer service. clean n professional staff. Room are bigger than I expected since the hotel is at shop lot. No specific parking for visitors, need to compete with other visitor that coming to nearby shop. Recommended.

Clean, dated,Outsourced restaurant
Room a little dated but clean and aircon was very good. The restaurant was good but it is now run as a outsourced entity. They charged us for hot water to heat a baby bottle and wanted to charge for ice for our rooms.

Value for money
You can access every part of KK very easily from this place. Nice foods are within walking distance from this hotel. The only disadvantage is parking space for car. I have been looking for parking space for more than 1 hour on my first day at KK.

Close to Gaya Sunday Market
You imagine at the early morning, when you wake up you find out that Sunday Market is on your hotel doorstep. What a heaven!! The Sunday market sell everything from food, souvenir, fruits, apparel and many more. Just pick one of them and bring back as memory.

Great location
This really cool historic hotel is right in the heart of town, its the first hotel in Kota Kinabalu and Mohamed Ali stayed here years ago. Its really charming and the place to stay on the weekend as the Sunday Market is literally right outside the front door. There is a great little supermarket walking distance from the hotel and a nearby mall too. The hotel uses British style plugs (as does the entire country) so make sure you have a converter- the nearby 7-11 does not. Otherwise, great hotel, I'd definitely stay here again
