Chic, comfortable stay
A very comfortable, reasonably chic hotel with a lot of nice details, like USB outlets in the room and spectacular sea views. Great location near the main tourist area in Kota Kinabalu. Decent room service as well. Overall, an excellent deal for the price.

Nice rooms and a very clean hotel.
The hotel is in great condition. The carpets in the rooms and halls are clean and have a new appearance. Huge bed. Big TV. And very clean. It has a nice bathroom with a huge shower. However, the water pressure isn't so good. I stayed four days, and for about two days, the hot water wasn't working. We could only get luke warm water. The hotel said that they were repairing a pump to rectify the problem. They gave me a very late check out as compensation. And as everything else was great with the room, I'll consider it just bad luck that it happened while I was there. They hotel seemed to be doing their best to make amends. The breakfast is Asian oriented, but still has enough food for those who just want a simple American style breakfast. The staff seems well trained. We enjoyed our stay, and would stay again.

Good effort. Nice and clean. Great service.
Good service. Service attitude of staff is what sets this place apart. Plus location is right in the middle of KK. And rooms are quite new. Basic 3-4 star hotel trying it's very best. Decent facilities, nice and clean. All fine perhaps the breakfast was much too crowded. And the food should be upgraded. But we were there in super high season. Swimming pool is too small. Kids did not like the swimming pool. Rooms are much better than anticipated. Fully recommend for stopover in KK compared with other in town alternatives.
