The hotel location is excellent. It is located in the middle of Asia City Complex in the middle of Kota Kinabalu city. Centrepoint Mall is located just across the road, the Philipines market and the waterfront is within a short walk from the hotel. Travel agents, banks, money changer, convenient store, massage centres, spa, saloon... you name it; all within 5-15 minute walk from the hotel. If you stayed at higher floors, the view is absolutely beautiful. You can watch the famous Kota Kinabalu Sunset from your room. There are many good restaurant and eating outlet within a short walk from the hotel.
However, the room was very small. Very very small! The hotel is fairly new. The check in and check out processes were a breeze, the staff were friendly and speak good English, the hotel is clean, and the room was cleaned daily. The bathroom was pretty standard, its size was half the room size (thats how small the room is!) The AC is working well. There was a blow dryer, a safe, an LCD TV, although there are limited channel available for viewing. The bathroom supplies were replenished daily. Water pressure was very good, so you get good showers. There was also a water dispenser for hot, cold and warm water at every floor, which was very helpful. There was also a common ironing area, located near the lift lobby. The Wifi is not reliable though. Speed fluctuates and not consistent.
Overall, it is a good hotel. For RM135 a night, it was worth it. I would recommend this hotel for those who just need to stay in the room for the night or for business traveler who spend most of their time outside at meetings or exploring the vibrant city. Not for those who plan to stay in the hotel for the rest of their holidays here in Kota Kinabalu.
