“Nice staff for a very nice hotel!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We stayed at 2 family rooms of Hotel Sixty3 from April 14 to 17, 2011. As early as August of 2011 I was already communicating with Lisa and Shiella regarding our reservation. They were very nice and all my emails were answered very promptly.
The family rooms are big and very comfortable. One had a view of Sabah Tourism board and the other one of a parking lot (no problem about that).
The hotel is situated near all of the nice places you would want to go to. Restaurants, malls, Sunday Market and the Jesselton Ferry are all walking distances.
People at the Front Desk were very nice, warm and accommodating.
This hotel is really worth recommending. We had a very nice stay and we'll definitely stay here again if we go back to kota Kinabalu.

We had a pleasant stay at the hotel even though just for a night. Strategically located with new, modern, clean and quiet room, comfortable bed, advance entertainment TV... Helpful customer service and great airport transfer service. Overall happy and satisfied with the room and services provided. We will definitely stay here again during our future KK trip! Highly recommended to all..

We stayed for one night in April. Overall, a fairly safe choice with optimization potential.

Room was nice, but one could clearly see that the cleaning and maintenance staff could be more attentive. On the grille of the bathroom door, there was still construction dust, and the bathtub had removable stains. The air con thermostat did not work properly, so the room got very cold, and we had to control temperature in the good old binary way (on/off).

Staff were very friendly. Pricing is OK but not cheap, even hotels in Johor are more competitively priced.

For the price of the hotel the room was spacious, clean and included Wifi. The bed was comfortable. The shower was large and the towels were soft. The staff were friendly and helpful. Barring the view (of which there isn't one) I would say this is better and cheaper than chains like Marriot or Sheraton.

The hotel is near the Jesselton Hotel - and that area is really lovely to walk around. We made the mistake of switching hotels to one on the other end of KK - and I wish we had just stayed at Hotel Sixty3, the area was nicer and had fewer malls everywhere.

There isn't a tub, but with all the sand in KK you don't really need one. They also don't serve breakfast, but there are many eateries and bakeries very close by we didn't have any problems finding food/coffe.

My only problem is that they hotel plays music in the hallways loudly and when we were falling asleep we could hear it in our room. Granted we fell asleep very early each night (being out in the sun all day) and I didn't notice the music in the middle of the night if I woke up. It would be very nice if the hotel turned the music down in the hallways, but I never asked if this were possible while we were there because it didn't bother us that much.

Dear BELondon, Thank you very much for the review and we are truly glad that you have enjoyed your stay as well as what our locality has to offer! We apologize for the slight noise disturbance from the hallway music. We will improve this and ensure that volume is controlled better at night. We hope you will come back to Sixty3 and explore more of Kota Kinabalu in the future!
