Positive Reviews

A consistent level of accommodation

Overall, guests liked this modern and clean hotel. Judging by past reviews, it seems to consistently offer a solid level of comfort and has proven to be a reliable pick in Kota Kinabalu.

Helpful staff with good transport service

The staff here also come highly commended. They seem to be attentive and cheery and go above and beyond in terms of customer assistance. Also, many liked the transfer shuttle service offered by this property.

Solid value

While not located right in the central waterfront area of Kota Kinabalu, this hotel does have its own attractions. The price is a case in point and many felt that this property represented an absolute bargain for the area.

Negative Reviews

Odd location, river-front views a misnomer

Many found the location of this property - which appears to be situated in the heart of an industrial estate - to be downright odd. Also, this hotel advertises river-front views, but guests were disappointed to find themselves in rooms boasting a panorama only of the local canal.

Strange smells and uncomfortably hot rooms

Perhaps due to its canal-side location, strong, foul smells were prevalent throughout this property, but were especially noticeable in the rooms and hallways of the building. These odours were exacerbated by this property's AC, which appears to shut off when guests leave their units, leaving no fresh air in circulation.

Woeful Wi-Fi

Last but certainly not least, the poor Wi-Fi service rounds out this property's list of contentious points. Many felt truly let down by this amenity, which appeared to be weak and intermittent. For those already hot and bothered by foul odours, the lack of connectivity here was just another irritating bugbear.
