Awesome Vacation in Kinabalu

As per my ratings above,everything was great. This is my 2nd stay here. I got a free upgrade to deluxe room. Breakfast was good. Staffs were friendly. Only downside was that there was no 24hr shops nearby, nothing in minibar,location was out of town. During the day not much of an issue as there was a shuttle service provided into town. It was abit of a problem at night. I loved the gym. Necessary equipment were there. I needed to wash my tee and my jeans urgently right before checkout. They took my laundry at 9am and returned them back to me at 1130am. Perfect! Great service!

Valueable hotel

I have been in KK many times, before I leave 5* hotels with expensive rates. This hotel has much valuable rate that I booked it this vacation. As we hire a car and the location for us is not problem. Hotel offers free parking for the guests is very good. The hotel also has offered the shuttle bus to many places in the town. The room is clean and with good air conditions. I stay in this hotel with happiness. Will stay again in my future vacations to KK

Good value if you are not looking for service oriented

Staff don't greet you at all eg good morning or good afternoon. They just ignore you when they meet you along the room passage or reception or recreation area pool and gym. I wanted to extend one more night and it took alot of persuasion to find out whether it is ok to stay one more night. I was asked to apply on line even though i agree to pay the walk in rate by paying cash. Staff very unsure of admin procedure for reservation. The reception staff consult each other at length and leave you standing there baffled as to whats going on. Reception suggested that i check out and check in again for the extra night.. It doesn't make sense. Very tempted to check into another hotel. Maybe this hotel specialise in bus load tours and not personal tourist.

Value for money...

This hotel was chosen for my stay as it was one of the few which meets my budget...price i paid for was worth it...meets my expectations....hotel room was clean,king sized bed was comfy...only thing was that mini bar was empty...room service was considerably fast and good...the room i got was at the old wing....a little out of the way...but it was still alright...breakfast was great...they had a mix of asian & western cuisines.... location was good...right smack in the middle of KK town & KK international airport...only downside is that if u need to make a couple of trips into town in a sgl day,its so much better to rent a car....1 way trip costs RM15 in KK.....they dont use the meter......would be good if the lobby shop actually sells some toiletries,soft drinks or snacks like chips and stuffs.....
