Clean and simple
Loved this hotel. It is simple but clean. We came from the jungle to this hotel, so it was pretty comfortable. Don't expect too much luxury, but just a clean and simple room.

Fair2.0 / 5
It is not a pleasant stay,room facility is minimum. Only two hangers, no wardrobe, only two bathing towels, no hand towels, there is no bedside reading lamp. Overall I do not the hotel match its claimed rating of two and half star.

Awesome staff, rooms neglected
The positive: The staff here are amazing. We had a million questions and requests, and every time they answered us with a smile. They were so helpful and did everything they could to give us a good stay in Sandakan. The hotel also looks great. The lobby and rooms are really nicely decorated. And finally, the location good, right downtown, by lots of great food places and a minute's walk from the local bus terminal. The negative: The rooms, bathrooms especially, were sadly neglected. We saw two different rooms (our first one had broken A/C so we had to move) and there were a lot of bugs in both bathrooms. Our second bathroom had yellow marks on the toilet seat which came off when I cleaned it. It was such a shame, because it would only take a small effort (bug spray once a week and regular bathroom cleaning) to make this hotel really amazing.

A little gem
Hotel central is a fantastic little hotel. Clean and tidy, although there were a few ants in the room, but the owner was waiting for the pest control men to come. The staff went out of there way to help people and was always polite. The Sunday market (a must for people who like local markets), was right out side the hotel. The bus terminal is only 2 streets away and shared taxies (minibuses) was at the end of the road. The sea is behind bus terminal and this is where most locals eat after 5.00pm. The downside, althought you get a kettle and 2 cups but no coffee or tea. You have to bring your own or buy at hotel. I was going to stay there for 3 days but ended up staying 17. I will be back it is a little gem
