The hotel is in an excellent location. However, this is totally offset by the very filthy state of the rooms (for the rating that the hotel is in) from poor cleaning service. When i checked in and went into the room, in the corner of the entrance door in the room, there was a huge ball of hair and dust entangled with it. The bathroom had steaks of dirt on the floor. When i left the room in the morning, i left the "no entry" sign on the floor, and when i came back, even tho the bed was made, the sign was still on the floor (which meant that the floor was not swept!!). I can go on and on, but you get the idea. I have very seldom given a one star in my over 100 ratings, but this one truly deserves the one star.

Staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. Wifi worked well. In a great location. Some very good restaurants, massage places very close by. A five minute walk to the shared taxi/bus station area, to the Sabah mall (also to pick up the cheap airport shuttle) and a short walk to the night food market. Highly recommended.

Near several seafood restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and short distance to Waterfront, Gaya Street by car/Grab. There is a very relaxing spa called Kama'A across the road. Single room was just nice for 1 person with very basic amenities.
