For the money the RM159 'studio' room is very good value in KK.
Whilst i dont really agree with their definition of studio (to me this indicates a much larger room) it was well furnished, clean and comfortable. The view was over the main road but as the friendly lady at reception pointed out, the windows meant that noise was minimal. Room had replenished tea/coffee each day - standard nescafe coffee. Didnt have the tea but think it was the local sabah tea which is nice. No fridge however but for the price that is sort of understandable. Overall the staff were really friendly people, even if we did not require too much assistance, when we did - they helped out efficiently and cheerfully.
Location is excellent for us. We went snorkelling to the TAR islands twice, and the hotel is just 10 mins walk from Jessleton point where the boats depart. No breakfast included in the hotel, but just next door is a handy place selling noodles first thing in the morning (before 8am) for RM2 a go. Tasty stuff.
Also a fruit shop a further couple of shops down (same people i think) where we had delicious cut fruit to take away including mango. In the other direction from the hotel, you reach the main part of Jalan Gaya with many more eating options. Finally, the waterfront is about a 10 min walk and the night market a further 5-10 minutes. All easy going walks and straightforward.
We had an evening flight so left our bags at the reception area all day and were comfortable with that as it felt secure with staff constantly around. Overall I think we'd definitely stay here again on a visit to KK.
