Hotel No 5
Ranked #25 of 92 Hotels in Kota Kinabalu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2017

I chose this hotel because it was located very close to the airport. I had previously stayed in town near the waterfront more than double the cost of Hotel No 5. Location is great for night time flight departures, but bad for sight seeing in the city. They do offer shuttles to the city center, but do not offer airport shuttles. Taxi cost from hotel to the airport is a standard 30 Ringgit (~$7 USD). The hotel was clean and very inexpensive $41 USD. This hotel also had the best free internet during my 14 days in Borneo.

We visited the hotel with friends and ordered drinks to watch the sun go down on the 11th floor.The staff are extremely well trained friendly and efficient.A bucket of 5 beers cost M $ 60 which was reasonable . And $22 for a glass of wine which wasn't very large but well chilled.Sadly the weather was rainy so not a great sunset ..we would definatly try again as the atmosphere was relaxed and worth a second visit.We didn't eat but the snacks looked interesting..

The hotel is very new, the room is clean and cozy. The dining area is attached to lobby and the designed is unique. The buffet breakfast is good and cheap. The location is near the airport but a distance to city centre. The staff are friendly.

An excellent hotel very close to airport. It is new hotel. Rooms are big, very comfortable and nicely maintained. All rooms are having big windows which is giving a very good outside view. Staff is very good and supportive. Excellent service. Food is very good but they have very limited option for breakfast.

Room Tip: Front rooms will give a very good outside view.
