Grand Borneo Hotel, Kota Kinabalu
Nice relaxing hotel with good pool
Yes, this is off the beaten path of downtown if you are taking tours like I was. But I found that I was glad to escape from the noise at night and when the weather is not good you are literally attached to a shopping mall. This location worked out well for me.

Maybe it was just our run-of-the-mill bad luck, but the room had problems. First, the door keys were not properly encoded, but that was fixed rapidly. Then, the in-room refrigerator wasn't working, so they replaced it - again, rapidly. Finally, one of the large window shades in the bathroom wouldn't go up - in fact, during the night, it fell down. They sent maintenance to fix it, and it appeared that they did - except that the problem occurred again the next night. On the plus side, they upgraded us "because we were there for three nights" and the room was fabulous, with a great view of the mountains. The bathtub is oversized, so even I, at 6'2", could sit stretched out comfortably under warm water. Breakfast in the room was a bit expensive, so we thought we'd just use a restaurant in the attached mall. That didn't work, as they don't open until 10:30 - not even McDonald's. Even with the problems, we look forward to going back.
