We had booked two superior rooms and stayed for 3 nights. The counter staff was helpful enough to help us to book similar floors which is close to each room. Bed was comfy and had very good sleep throughout. Rain shower was excellent. Best is the location as it is within the 1borneo mall itself. There is a small door...

Decided to splurge on Grand Borneo after staying in some basic rooms in KK and Sandakan. Opted for the Grand Deluxe package which was surprisingly nice, 85 USD per night . We were ushered to the 15th floor for a special checkin, beer, wine, juice drinks and snacks. The room was like a modern studio apartment without the kitchen. Separate...
