Good place to stay! Near the centre, at the waterfront, you step outside and you can go anywhere. It looks all new, bedroom was clean but no WiFi signal in the other side of the room. Price is good though! Cant complain about that.

Good position, CHEAP, CLEAN, small, small window had a view of the harbour, weird bathroom setup, mixed up our booking on check in but got it right in the end, foyer smells like the fish market across the road. For the price and cleanliness you can't go wrong!

Très bon accueil, prix très abordable sans réserver - 78 MYR seulement (sic) - et un hotel bien tenu, propre. Ravissante chambre avec fenêtre sur rue arrière, calme, s-de-bain sympa, un vrai nid. Wifi, ascenceur, tout fonctionne.

This hotel is still very new so the amenities are all working great. I hope it will not be stricken with the Malaysian malaise of things breaking down after two years. The corridors are narrow and the room is small but with a very comfortable solid bed. There is a soft ambiance about the room but since the room is not for hanging around it does not really matter, but still worth mentioning. There is free wifi in the room with the usual coffee and tea complimentary from the hotel. The hot shower works perfect and so does the air-condition. If you are a photographer, you would like the idea that the local market is just in front across the road. Wake up early to shoot the fishermen bringing in their catch and displaying them for buyers by the pier behind the market. The location is great if you want to look for local day tours or a guided tour into the Kinabatangan River. Restaurants are a plenty around this hotel. Just behind the hotel is a Mall which is new but looks lifeless of business activity. I would return to stay in this place if I am around Sandakan.
