Strategic hotel”

We love the simpleness of the hotel. The staff are friendly & helpful, the breakkie sessions are generally nice, and the most important thing is, it is strategically located at the centre pf everything we need (shops, local markets, eateries, museum, mosque, stadium, beach, malls...everything!). It's easy to come back to our room after a long day because the hotel is just opposite the main road. The space is okay for both of us. The TV is working alright. All in all, it provides us our basic needs during our amazing stay in Kota Kinabalu. Thanks Yomi Hotel!

Staff very helpful”

I have stayed at Yomi hotel a few times over the past couple of weeks. Due to the nature of my visit, every single stay has been arranged very last minute and the hotel have always been able to accommodate me. The staff here are super friendly and are extremely helpfult. I have been able to leave luggage here at the hotel when I have had to travel on last minute errands and the hotel has kept my belongings safe for me until I return. The bedding is clean and clean towels provided daily. On one of the nights, I had an issue with my door not locking. Without hesitation, the staff here provided me with a room upgrade at no extra charge. Breakfast is good!

Strategically Located in the Business District”

Even though I had problems with my booking (with Oyo 209 Yomi Hotel), I would like to commend one reception staff ( I forgot to take his name, but he was Filipino) for accommodating us regardless of the problems we encountered. Rooms are clean and adequate for the price you pay, and their breakfast buffet is enough to fuel you up in the morning. They also give fresh towels and make up the room every day.

In the middle of the nightlife in Bukit Bintang”

Low cost, good location, large room

Yomi hotel is an older hotel, well worn. Great if you are looking for a low cost alternative in the middle of nightlife. Room can be noisy as the street below stays busy very late into the night. Overall, good for the budget traveler if you like the location.

Unfortunately, my flight was cancelled by the airline due to unknown reasons. The airline wouldn't even refund our hotel accommodation. But luckily, Yomi Hotel was very accommodating and very kind that they allowed us to refund our hotel (even though I think it is not allowed) - because of their kindness, we didn't refund it.

Yomi Hotel offers a good accomodation for a cheap price. We only paid RM 369 for 4 nyts/ 3 pax which already includes free breakfast. The staff were also accomodating, they let us leave our luggage since check out is at 11 am and our flight os still at 4 pm. Their location is also at the center of the city and is very accessible. The downsides are the lack of elevator which is not okay if u have PWDs or Sr. citizens for companions. The breakfast is buffet style, but selections are very few.

If it's not booked via Agoda, forget about it.”

I have mixed reviews for Yomi. Location is great. However, the first night we were here our flight arrived super early morning and so I booked on the spot and not via Agoda. The room was... shocking. It looked decrepit and they didn't accept credit card (but they have Agoda transactions :|). Wifi is not available in the lounge, only in the rooms. We wanted to leave immediately after opening the room. We actually covered the pillows and the mattress before sleeping on it. HOWEVER, when we changed rooms to the one I pre-booked via Agoda, the room was nice! It was clean, looks properly maintained, and was obviously remodeled. There is fast wifi in the room and there is also an available water station per floor. There is no lift so be prepared if you're staying here after climbing Mt. Kinabalu.

Location excellent fronting the main road”

I paid RM222.00 nett for a recent 3 nights' stay. It's value for money for a good simple breakfast for a family room of three adults. I tried everything, Nasi Lemak, Bihun Goreng, Mee Goreng, Porridge, Potato Curry Chicken, Hot Dog, Toasted Bread with jam, chocolate, butter, peanut cream, etc, Coffee & Tea, watermelon and coconut jelly as dessert. It would cost me at least RM10.00 per pax if I have to pay. Location is fantastic. After checking out from the airport, we took a bus parking just in front of the airport. We bought the bus ticket from the airport exit gate counter, cost RM5.00 per person. Took us only 15 mins to arrive at the hotel. The bus will stop at the central city mall opposite the hotel which is about just 100 metres walk across the road passing through a petrol pump station situated beside the hotel. The hotel is situated facing the front main road. Most of the places are within walking distances like Gaya Market, night market, Welcome Seafood Retaurant (largest).

Location: walking distance to bus terminal if you're crossing from Brunei via Sapitang express. Also walking distance from the van terminal going to Kinabalu Park, Jesselton Point, Imago Mall, and Bay view. Room: We stayed at room 111, twin bed. Room is a bit small but has window. Newly renovated room with blower and tv has good signal. Hallway has a water dispenser. As for the cr, the heater is working well, there is a bidet, but the lavatory is a bit clogged. Breakfast is okay. With toasts, rice, porridge, fruit in season and coffee Staff is very accommodating. Especially to sir Edward who let me use the cr in one of the rooms for shower in the evening. :)

The hotel is walking distance to many of the places of interest within the business district, taxi/bus stations, including popular restaurants, with a convenient store next door.

Pros: Free breakfast, Shy but helpful staff, Free drinking water, Hot Shower, Near Filipino Market, Waterfront entertainment area, Atkinson Clock Tower, Signal Hill Observatory, Padang Merdeka where the mini vans to Kinabalu Park and Poring Hot Spring can take you. There are a lot of local eateries where you can buy cheap bu delicious meals for as low as MR5.00. Cons: Should improve the Wifi reliability, we have to use the KK City Free Wifi on our last day because the hotel wifi was not working. A bit far from Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal - but we still walked. You can book a Grab instead of the regular taxi, it's very cheap. No mirror in the room, just in the rest room.
