Excellent 25 m swimming pool, well-equipped gym, comfortable Club Lounge, but some strange design features of my room (619) - with a curved desk squeezed into a corner and a sofa plopped in front of the window (to open...

The hotel is facing the sea, provides the fantastic view of the sunrise and sunset. The room is big and clean, the breakfast is tasty. It located nearby the busy road of the Kota Kinabalu, in front of the Phillpine market, the place of the night market and free market. This is the great hotel, just little bit pricy.
