Gaya Centre Hotel, Kota Kinabalu
The hotel needs lots of PM periodic maintenance. Carpet in hallway faded and torn, toilet was full of mold and smelled foul. Water from room upstairs can be heard flowing through the drains. Windows while offering panoramic view of the harbor are not wiped clean. Furniture and headboard are light colored fabric and full of stains. One day even found a cockroach in the room. Front office staff while trying to be helpful were not knowledgeable. Hotel has a great location but needs lots of TLC.

Gaya Centre Hotel, Kota Kinabalu
The hotel location is good, easy to access and have restaurants around. The customer service need to be improved - I hit issue on the keycard, which affect the room electricity supply. I reported to the receptionist again and again, she is not listening to customer request and ask me 'Do not waste time, go and try your keycard'. Finally, I go up and down 3 times........Only 1 receptionist is not helpful at all, but it really affect the rating.
