When we checked in, the room size is Ok of standard twin room. Check in was fast and easy. The bathroom is quite dirty with mould and fungus. Maybe due to poor ventilation inside. The good thing is the location is central. Just beside Suria Sabah. Walking distance to the waterfront and other interesting places.

We are family of 8 who travel to visit our relative in Sabah, and he had book this hotel for us for 3 nights stay. The location is very strategic as is just next to the shopping mall. And very convenient for those that is no transport in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The hotel. Facilities is not much but there is a lobby with bands. So for those who can't sleep. Can have some drinks. Hotel rooms look tired as is old fashioned not suitable for those who like modern and boutique feels hotel.

Our first room had iron burns in the carpet and food smeared on the walls. I got allergies within minutes... I got a fresh room which was better but still just terrible value and dirty. Mouldy shower and stained linen. The breakfast buffet is s joke. The food is replenished at what seems like half hourly intervals and is smashed by large tour groups hovering and the quality again is terrible. Just don't bother. Only positive was foyer staff are friendly... worst hotel in 20+ years of travel...

The hotel is reasonably priced for its strategic location right beside Suria Sabah Shopping Mall. The sea view rooms and in fact the restaurant on the fourth floor (breakfast is complimentary) has perfect nice views of the vast sea and skyline.

Only point is that the hotel is very commercialised and catered to mostly Chinese tourists (to the extent that the lift buttons descriptions are in Mandarin).

I have stayed at the Gaya Centre Hotel every year since 2012. Comfortable rooms with wifi, bar fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, cable TV and ducted aircon. The staff are friendly and helpful. The best thing though is the buffet breakfast. A good selection of food that is sure to please most people.

Room tip: Try a room overlooking the South China Sea. Rooms on the other side overlook Kota Kinabalu and the mountains behind.
