Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia82 contributions5 helpful votes
I've been staying here for 2 days in the middle of February 2022 with my family members. Overall, the price is not so expensive and the hotel really suits our needs. This hotel offers 2 types of price - either MYR90 or MYR 100. For a single bed and queen bed, they offer you rooms for MYR 90. Wifi is good and the signal is strong. I love the location. This hotel is located next to an Indian Muslim restaurant and is very close to convenience shops, pharmacies, clinic, banks, money changers, shopping malls, night markets, seafood markets, Gaya Street Sunday Market, Sinsuran Night Market and close to grilled fish shops in Kampung Air. If you are looking for a cheap hotel with good location I suggest you pick this hotel.

Near the city centre and amenities. Spacious room, clean, comfortable and affordable. Suggest to improve electric facilities because during my stay the heater in bathroom was unfunctional. Ask for immediate assistance but no action taken.

Stayed here primarily because of value and location and because it advertises itself as a non smoking hotel. It succeeded on the first two, but we had to try multiple rooms before we found two that didn’t stink of cigarettes. EVERY ROOM had an ashtray in it. And when we did find two that weren’t as foul smelling as the others they tried to charge us more..... also the towels need replacing. Most of the material in them has worn away.

Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, staff were friendly. Can get a little noisy from the karaoke bar across the road, but it didn't stop us from having a good night's sleep. Wifi was pretty slow. The tv was nice to have, even if there was omly 1 english language channel. Central location - near the night market, gaya Sunday market, shopping centres, fish market, jesselton quay.

Cheap hotel, clean room, a bit noisy from the street behind the window. Otherwise ok but on the street in front of the hotel there were several garbage cans and a lot of rats running there. Disgusting!

We stayed here 2 nights, as we wanted a place central but not expensive as we are back packing and knew we wouldn't be staying in the hotel all day. Just needed a bed to sleep. It's a run down area but don't let that put you off entirely, most of KK is run down and after all, it's not why you come to Sabah. The hotel itself is simple, clean and what you pay for. The air con is a godsend. TV, towels, simple bathroom freebies and a hot shower (hotest if the pressure of water is lower). The shower is typically Asia, with the entire bathroom being a wet room water will flow everywhere. But that's fine too. The Air con dries it quickly. The bed was comfortable, unless you can't for any reason have the aircon on all night like we couldn't (scuba diving) you will be hot and sticky as Sabah is humid as hell. The pillows weren't my favourite but my OH didn't have a problem with them. Room is small but from our experience everywhere in central kk is small. Generally felt really safe leaving our stuff there, staff were always friendly with smiles and pleasant. Sabah itself is super safe. Good for backpackers who know they won't be in the hotel all day. Over all its great value for money if you have to stay in budget hotels and don't like hostels dorms. Only issue is the streets of KK are super noisy most of the night so if you are a light sleeper you won't sleep much at all. Also neighbouring guests were really noisy most nights but that's not the hotels fault either.

Nice room with tv and HBO channel in english. Great location with BK and KFC 20 m away, riverside one block away and close to both malls and smaller shops. The staff was very nice and the owner offered to help me post my postcards because I didn't have enough time. Had to struggle a little bit with the wifi, AC and also the wake-up call didn't work. But overall a good budget choice!

Try to request rooms that are not close to the nearby pub or facing the road cause it was too noisy. Tried to ask to change room but was denied since we already paid. However awesome locations and hot shower

We stayed a week. The hotel is centrally located in KK near shopping, eateries and the jetty. The accommodation is basic but extremely clean with good beds, quiet air con, good shower, WiFi and discreet but helpful staff.

We were looking for a cheap hotel that is near with the landmark (Pasar Philiphine) and jetty to Pulau Manukan and etc. We got the room that was on promotion (RM79.90, think so) but the thing is the room is on the 3rd floor. No lift service but we were okay since we only stayed for one night. So far this hotel is okay for backpackers.
