La Viva Hotel Kota Kinabalu”

This hotel should upgrade a bit at least like Victoria Hostel Inn at Jalan Kampung Air in Kota Kinabalu itself. It is bad experience when we go for holiday, eventhough it is a budget hotel, but must have the maintainance. Cannot describe our feeling when we check in on midnight then blackout'no lectricity' so terrible. The other way, we looking for other hotel. Luckily I can call direct to Agoda for the Cash Redeem at least i can book other hotel on the spot. Thank you Agoda.

Great stay for business traveler - speedy WiFi”

We are working online as freelancers so fast internet is very important to us - Victoria Hotel was able to provide us a very fast internet and that was the most important thing during our stay. We also loved the breakfast option, you usually get three pieces of toast with butter and jam, a plate of fresh watermelon and a choice of drink: coffee or tea. Great service, very clean, staff spoke good English! We do recommend this place!

Clean, good location

I liked the hotel locationa which is near to everything (Gaya Street, Waterfront, Bus station to Mount Kinabalu, etc). The staff are friendly and also helpful. Although My room didin't have windows, it is clean and equipped with wifi and a tv. Some things for improvements: the only accessible electrical socket in the room was 1.5 m from the ground. This creates problem for charging phones and cameras. The toilet needs to be tidied up a bit, like patch the holes in the ceiling.

Room is ok, interent really frustrating”

Ok breakfast, ok location, ok room

it's an easy 25 minute walk from the ferry terminal and just 10 minutes walk from the Wawasan Bus terminal. While they couldn't find our (agoda) booking when we checked in there was no problem in letting us into the room while they checked. We had a private double bed in room 202 right at the front overlooking the street where they set up for the night market (its not a good night market, just a market). There's loud music while the night market is on, until it closes at 11pm, but it didn't keep us awake, that would be the moron with his dodgy exhaust/muffler and penchant for doing "donuts" in the street between 0300 and 0400. The shower gave good hot water, just not much pressure and there's a sort of ledge, so most of the bathroom doesn't get wet. Bed was comfortable, towels thin but of a reasonable size. Single electric socket, effective air con (although if you're on the side of the bed under it you'll freeze while your partner doesn't). Breakfast is standard fare - (good) coffee, toast (three slices, although more was offered) butter and jam, plus sliced watermelon. Staff were friendly and there is a PC in the lobby area as well as internet access in the dining area and it was also available in our room. It's a shame that the wifi didn't really do anything. It seemed ok on arrival, was consistent but just slow, then after around 6 hours it just went to a complete and utter waste of time - you know that internet access that gives you just enough to show you half a page and then nothing else. Seriously frustrating. We ended up staying another night in Kota Kinabalu but chose another hotel because of the internet issues.

Very clean hotel, friendly staff and good value for money!”

This hotel would have been perfect if only there was an elevator. We were in the 3rd floor so it was difficult to carry our luggages. But apart from that, hotel was clean and staff was accomodating. I like it that they had a common pantry for everyone. Location was perfect too, almost everything was reachable by walking and it was near the mall, drugstore, convenience store, also right in front of the night market. Seafood market was only 10 mins walking distance. Glad I booked this hotel!

Comfortable stay”

I recently stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is located in the middle of KK town. It has a 24 hr reception, checking in and out was easy. Towels are provided. The hotel is very clean. Aircond and hot water functioning well. Simple breakfast is provided. The only downpart is the iron/ironing board which are stationed in the lobby near the reception. The area is pretty warm as there is no fan/aircond. The board is too low, not healthy for the spine. But apart from this small matter, i am happy with everything else.

A basic but OK hotel just infront of night market”

Its cheap and a stone throw's away everything

Im not loving the whole ambiance but Im not complaining for the price I payed. The hotel is very basic but they clean your room everyday. I cant say the room is uber clean, its a bit tired and needs improvement, but so long as im not seeing any bugs, im fine with it. But over all we enjoyed the stay, the staff are all friendly and nice. The wifi connection is really slow. The hotel is just in front of the night bazaar, thats literal. Its also near Seri Selera where you can eat great seafood, walking distance from malls and the waterfront.

Value for money, clean place, well maintained place. Noticed that they replaced their shower heater recently. Glad that they make the necessary replacements. Good breakfast, simple and quick. Convenient location, close to the market, in fact, the market is just outside the hotel. Staff are friendly and accommodating. it does get noisy at about 8am, but it doesnt matter if you will leave the hotel in the morning.
