Booked this hotel as it is nearer for my friends to pick me up. It's outside of the city centre, closer to the airport. Cost me RM7 from airport to hotel via Grab. Was pleasantly surprised with what is essentially a shop lot conversion.. Rooms are spacious, clean with coffee-making amenities as well as basic toiletries. Shops and restaurants are right on your doorstep as well. They do collect RM50 as a deposit but this is common in Malaysia. Also, non-Malaysian visitors please take note there's a new tourism tax in place which is over and above the room rate advertised. Reception staff was friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Do not stay here. Horrible. They advertise free airport transfer but don't respond to your email regarding flight details after booking. I paid 35 ringgit to get there, and they tried to charge me 15 to get back. They also don't mention the 50 ringgit deposit and the 10 hotel tax. The Wi-Fi is weak and the entire place smells like an ashtray. The hotel staff are good at apologizing, but they do nothing to compensate for their ineptitudes. The management probably knows you're in your way to somewhere else, and they have no qualms about screwing you. They know you won't be back, and they don't care. Shameful and unethical are the words that come to mind when I think of the management. I can already foresee the falsely justified nonsense response to this you'll read from whichever idiot is responsible for picking up the pieces. Save yourself the time and money. Avoid this place. Your money and time are much, much better spent elsewhere. It's a total con job, and the people who run the operation have no moral code of conduct or backbone.

We check in with a large group of people. The Hotel Staff are very helpful and friendly. Though not the first time we are staying here, I am quite sure our next outing to this City that we would come back. The rooms are clean and the location is fine with many eateries around.

Room tip: No special preference.

We stayed here for a couple of days when we visited Kota Kinabalu. The hotel is situated outside of the city centre, but offers easy access to both city centre and attractions in the vicinity of Kota Kinabalu.

I set my expectation low before coming here. I thought it would be a small old room. Turned out it really really worth my money! Room is spacious, there's few eateries downstairs and within walking distance, there are gym and eateries as well.
