Negative Reviews


Not the most convenient location

Guests feel that this hotel doesn't offer a particularly convenient location for exploring the city. The hotel is a few miles outside the centre of Kota Kinabalu and even the nearby shopping centre Imago is across a very busy road. The hotel does provide a shuttle bus which mitigates the problem but the service times aren't always very convenient. Instead, guests sometimes opt to catch a taxi which can be a costly option.


Check-in sometimes frustrating

Guests mention that this hotel is popular with tour parties from China and Korea and at time gets very busy. Check-in can sometimes be quite protracted which guests find annoying.


Food could be improved

According to feedback, there is perhaps room for improvement concerning the food served here. Guests feel that the quality of the food isn't the best and aren't very impressed with the range of options either.
