Lovely modern hotel with great Asian restaurant in-house and great buffet breakfast in adjoining cafe/bar. Nice swimming pool and could order drinks - although you had to leave pool and sit In table area. Good location to local markets / nearby mall and 10 minute walk to waterfront.

Have stayed there twice, very good location and clean. Rooms are relatively big and spacious too. You just need to walk, you will find lots of local food and seafood too. One road away is the famous Gaya Sunday market where you can spend more than 1 hour browsing on the things they sell. From live animals, to fishes, fruits...

We stayed one night with an very early plane to catch next day. Staff were very helpful, room spotless and very comfortable, and the staff could not be more helpful in sorting out the very early start, providing a pack lunch and sorting luggage. Some nice touches which made our stay easy and relaxing, wish all hotels and their staff...

Staff was very friendly, hotel room clean and big, breakfast elaborate (Western as well as Asian). Stayed here two nights, once when starting my trip around Borneo, and the last night. The location is great, walking distance from the night market and not too far from the airport either! A little bit outdated but all in all a great experience!

Excellent part to stay in Kota Kinabalu close to many tourist restaurant options. Many transportation choices nearby including taxis or public vans to Kinabalu Park. Breakfast was great, view of the city from our room window was breathtaking. Recommended for your Kota Kinabalu stay!

Stayed 4 nights taking little excursions from KK. The hotel was in a great location for walking to restaurants and cabs were always available. The rooms were nice, spacious and clean. The breakfast was great. We found the staff to be helpful... although I did ask for a bucket of ice that never arrived. Overall, it was a positive experience.
