Stay in a double room and think that this was a very good value for money hotel. The only problem is that it stays faar from the Jesselton point to go to the islands. Staff is very commited to you and really wants to help u with ur problems.

We booked a superior triple room and it came with a queen and a single. As this was an "express", do not expect too much fir the price you pay. We were pleasantly surprised to find an in-room safe, coffee n tea making facilities located in space-saving space and a mini fridge. Room wasn't super spacious but was roomy enough....

Room is clean. Staff are very nice and efficient. Although our room is a bit small, still recommend considering the price and location of the hotel. Seafood restaurants like Welcome and Ikan-Ikan just 1-3 minute walk. City Bus stop just outside Centre Point (2minutes from hotel). Will definitely come back again.

Having water dispenser instead of giving out bottled water saves costs and green. But the water dispensed is not or not filtered and disinfected properly resulting unpleasant taste and odours. Wifi password should be one time for entire stay and offered during checking. ..guests don't have to call and ask for it.

Stayed here for 5 times already. Very safe and clean except the room space is kind of small and movement limited. Eateries easily available. Friendly counter staff. Highly recommended for single or couple.

Service was very good to deal with our school group at a last minute booking. Rooms nice and clean. Breakfast food was so-so. Omelettes were not cooked very well on either day and someone in our group got very sick.

We stayed there one night before making our way to Mt Kota Kinabalu base camp. It is located in a less prominent area but if you are travelling by cab, this is fine. There are nearby eateries selling Indian and Chinese food. There is a ba kut teh cafe just beside the hotel. You will have to walk a bit...
