We stayed here recently for one night before catching a flight out of sandakan airport. The room we stayed in was pleasant enough and was clean, but the surrounding area was unpleasant. The noise problem from the karaoke bar downstairs remains and much of the downstairs of the hotel space was like a building site. The downstairs of the foyer...

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The towels and floor were dirty, the bed quite filthy and there was a strange smell in the room. It is located in a suburbian area ca 20 min from the airport by taxi. The area was not very nice and we couldnt find a decent restaurant that was open. The staff...

Location: Located away from the city, basically you will need a car or ground transportation arranged to travel around, surrounded by small industries Room: Spacious, modern, clean, and sufficient (too noisy at night due to the karaoke downstairs) Service: Helpful front desk Overall: Average

This is a quality property. We had a beautifully appointed room, management was professional, knowlegable about the area, helpful, and courteous. The hotel is right off the main highway about 10 minutes or so from the downtown in a newer area of Sandakan. The area is mixed apartment houses and retail businesses. The rooms surround an inner, covered courtyard where...

This is the second time that I've been here within 2 months. Nothing much has changed. The bed, the room ambience is undeniably comfortable after a long day. But, it doesn't mean anything when you consider the ridiculous noise coming from the club downstairs. With the whole "hotel" arrangement resembling something like your school hostel, the noise really travels. It...
