Exceptional 10.0
Great stay, loved the pool (view & poolside bar)
We enjoyed our stay so much! Spent most of it at the pool having drinks :) The service is great at the pool for drinks & food, with great view. Happy hour is all the time, buy 1 get one free for all cocktails all day long, and they are good. We didn't love the surrounding city area so much, but we loved all of the tours we went on in Borneo. Will definitely be back again soon!

Fantastic customer service
I would sincerely recommend this hotel. Having just finished a trip around Vietnam, Borneo and the Philippine’s. Le Meridian stood out for me. Great facilities, decor and location. But mainly the customer service was second to non. On arrival as a solo traveller I enquired about walking Mt Kinabalu and numerous other tours. The management team were fantastic. Greeted initially by the duty manager who was very helpful. I then met Elivina who went over and above what I’d requested and even managed to secure me a place on the walk 2 days later. She was very attentive and also helped me with other areas of my trip. So when travelling back towards the airport I only wanted to stay at Le Méridien. The only area of improvement for me would be small maintenance (dirty windows) but I was advised on arrival that work was taking place above so this was not a problem. From a previous career running restaurants and hotels I completely appreciate the hard work that goes into running a successful hotel. But can also have high expectations. This stay was wonderful and the attention to detail from Elvina and the team really stood out. It was a breath of fresh air. I will be back. Thank you.

Good contemporary design hotel with good service
The hotel is new and with contemporary design. The check in was fast and I was able to get a room by 12:30pm which is much appreciated. The concierge was very helpful and speaks good English. The beds were big and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. The only drawbacks are 1) upper floors are still going through construction and 2 lifts have been suspended 2) our pastries being left in the room were being covered by ants when we came back so hotel needs to work on pest control 3) walls are thin and we can hear loud voices of guests staying next to us so hotel needs to work on installing better sound proof walls between rooms
