We have stayed in Eden 54 from 20.03.2011 to 24.03.2011 during our 3 weeks trip to West and East Malaysia. Kota Kinabalu was the last city we visited before flying home. The city is a good starting point for all kinds of activities in Borneo - be it mountain hiking, jungle trekking or scuba diving. A flight to Sandakan and the Sepilok Orang Utan reserve takes only 40 minutes and is a good idea.
The infrastrucure of Kota Kinabalu leaves not a lot to wish for with all the food, markets and all the shopping you'll need. People are laid back and friendly - and the doctor's are open 24h if you need one.
Hotel Eden 54 is a boutique-style hotel, interiour reduced to the necessary and inspired by the fashion of boutique hotels that can be found in Europe (but much cheaper!). The hotel is situated only 15 min by taxi from the airport – and in walking distance of several shopping centers.
We were welcomed by the owners who run the hotel with professionalism and a real spirit of service. We immediately felt at home here!
Eden 54 is the ideal stop for a couple of days or as a basis for exploring the environments. Free wifi, facilities to print out your next flight ticket and the nice rooms are just everything you need. There is no breakfast - but then, breakfast in a hotel would be a waste in Kota Kinabalu, where you have a tremendous choice of foodcourts and street food. We recommend a stroll down the road for some Roti Canai with Tarig tea - delicious.
Whenever you need an advise or help, you can count on the hotel staff to be right there - we have rarely met such friendly and helpful people, even in Malaysia.
So look no further when in Kota Kinabalu - just tell the taxi driver at the airport "Eden 54" and they will say "good choice"! What better reputation can a hotel have ?
