Budget Perfect
Close to central shops and necessary taxis. Restaurants below are safe, delicious, and cheap! Walk south a block and then towards the water for awesome Phillipino markets!

It's ok
Maintenance on this hotel is so poor. Neighbourhood around this hotel is good, near mall & restourant. Try to fix all maintenance such as the flush, tv channel & air conditioner.

Excellent4.0 / 5
A cheap place to stay in a great location.
The hotel is budget but right of the main street along the river. Hotel is feels comfortable but there are a lot of stairs. I had to go up two flights then back down two flights (on another staircase) to get to my room. Room was simple but smelled damp and moldy. Good if you are just staying a day or two and want a cheap place to stay.

Strategic location, value for money
Location good - walking distance to shopping complex like Suria Sabah, Wisma Merdeka, KK Plaza, Centre Point and places of interest like Jesselton point, waterfront, night market. Wifi was not very good. Had to go out of the room to get signal. TV volume can't be controlled (i stayed in two different rooms, both rooms had d same problem). Nowhere to hang your towel/clothes in the toilet, no hook provided in the toilet. Shower curtain can't fully cover the window in the toilet, had to be careful when using the toilet
