I had pretty high expectations after so many glowing reviews of the hotel when we were planning where to stay and booked the Gaya Centre hotel. The rooms looked decent in the pictures and the price was very affordable. Upon making room booking, I requested for a queen bed room and was told that they cannot guarantee it as it...

We we upgraded to Junior Suite and the room comes with two double beds which is great for us with 2 young children. We love the breakfast area especially the balcony area facing the islands and sea. Breakfast spread is good enough to start your day. The only thing we don't like is the noise from the street. Since our...

A quiet, spacious, economical room. All featured amenities are clean & in a good working condition. A large, room for a low cost. Somewhat lackluster staff. Not the safest, friendliest, or cleanest- city in Asia; but potentially one of the best values. A central business district hotel. A recently built edifice.

After a horrific experience checking in at the Rainforest Lodge...and us walking out upon sight of our room, we walked a few blocks and asked if this hotel had rooms available. We ended up sharing a room for three nightes on the 13th floor (out of 14) looking across the water to the islands and the view was spectacular. The...

what you get from this hotel is a seaview room, above average clean room and expected services and facilities from a city hotel. Next to the hotel is a newly opened shopping mall and you can easily spend half a day there.

I recently stayed at the Gaya before and after climbing Mt Kinabalu. We arrived late and really only wanted a room to sleep and have a hot shower. That's what we got! We travelled with another couple and their room was very clean but had no wifi. We were 5 doors down, our shower was mouldy but had wifi. Staff...

This is a good hotel, more like a four star than the buget hotel it is. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the staff were very helpful. We thought it let itself down by the poor quality of the breakfasts, but they were catering for hundreds (or so it seemed), and it is mainly catering for those on a...

It's not located in city center, but KK ain't that big; if you are not able to walk under the heat, taxi fare won't shock you either (just remember to negotiate it prior the journey). For divers, this hotel is in 5 mins walkin distance to Jesselton ferry point for your connecting boats. If your dive center use a different...
