The room was ok, bed comfortable and linen clean but generally tired and nothing special and the shower definitely needs an upgrade, broken tiles and dirty grouting. The location is good, close to a large shopping mall and walking distance to jetty and waterfront. The breakfast had a good selection of Asian/ Chinese food but very little western . The...

It was our complimentary stay for our wedding and we're enjoying our stay even though just for one night. It was quiet and clean. Bathroom kit are all provided. Complimentary sparkling juice for both of us.

The hotel location is just few steps from Suria Sabah Shopping Mall and near to Gaya Street Sunday Market. It is very recommended to take a walk on the pedestrian sidewalk near to the sea during morning or evening time! It will be great if they could vary breakfast menu as the menu seems the same for each day during...

Everything about Gaya Centre Hotel is average. Service, cleanliness, maintenance are average. Food at the breakfast room is really quite poor, but at least, I didn't fall sick from it. The bar downstairs was pitiful -- poor selection of drinks and the entertainment, well... perhaps playing CD's would be better. So I would have been very disappointed with my stay,...

Nice hotel with helpful friendly staff. Small cozy lounge to relax after a long and shopping trip around Kota Kinabalu with nearest complex, Suria Sabah. Comfy rooms. I have been staying here numerous time because of the location ...where it is cheap and affordable and city Center.

Have stayed at this hotel couple of times, reason being the convenient location. Just opposite is Suria Sabah Shopping Mall, with a decent food court and many restaurants to choose from. It is also within walking distance to Jesselton Jetty if you want to catch a ferry to any of the nearby beach islands Yes, the hotel is old, in...
