Room was clean. Additional pillows and towels will be charged - i believe only budget hotels do that. Shower area was spacious enough but beware of the slippery floor. Coffee provided with plastic spoons which would bend in shape when immersed in hot water. No refrigerator in the room. Overall, i feel that they are calculative in the way they treat their customers.

I choose to come back to stay at this hotel because it is near the Kim Fung Market. My children enjoy eating snacks and local delicacies at this market and lots of choices to select for afternoon teas. This time our hotel room's air-con is not working. Quick thinking, the hotel staff move us to another room where the air-con is working great.

A very nice & clean hotel to stay for any business trips and the surrounding is generally quite during the night for a good night rest after a long hard day out. There is a pool for a quick dip but did not have the chance to use it then.

I rarely write reviews of hotels as I have always had great experiences... But the Livingston Hotel shocked me. I arrived at the hotel a little disheveled as I had spent the last three nights on a wildlife expedition on the Kinabatangan river. As I arrived I was completely ignored by the bell boy and the staff at check in. I struggled with my bags to the check in desk where I was looked at with disgust. I placed my bags down and handed over my passport. I was continuously asked by the manager if I had a reservation and she then continuously repeated the price and looked at me in a condescending way. She then said are you sure that price is ok? I looked at her and again repeated my answer of yes. She gave me my room key and I could tell she wanted me away from the check in desk as soon as possible. I asked if there was someone to help with my bags - as I saw the trolley and she then called over the bell boy. I was shocked at how I was treated, purely based on the staff thought that I didn’t have money!! Before my river expedition I spent 4 nights at four points Sheraton, the service at the Sheraton was second to none and blows this hotel out of the water. I would welcome a response from management and an apology!
