I feel this hotel is catered for tour group and airline crew members. Basic room with only simple toiletries (no bath towel, no hand towel, no floor mat etc) unless you call in to request and they still have stock available. Breakfast is okay. Hotel is located a fair distance from city and across Imago shopping centre. But I feel...

A few things to consider before you check in, this hotel located near to imago but it dont have a path to this mall. Quite far from the main city centre and if rain - you cant escape. If you plan to go night market or seafood please reconsider it because this hotel is not walking distance. Others -breakfast not...

With the above said, be careful when you walk across to Imago shopping mall from this hotel. There are reported criminal cases in that area. On coming traffic makes it difficult to cross the road. There isn't a pedestrian crossing within a hundred meters. Very old hotel. Doesn't look like they have done any maintenance to it. My room had...

The Ming Garden hotel was our base for the first few days in Kota Kinabalu. Whilst we spent little time there, they were nothing but hospitable. We were climbing Mount Kinabalu and doing a few day trips, so location wise, it was perfect, as it was close to the airport, and also had a huge shopping centre across the road,...

Terrible experience. Misleading information online about the spa which was the reason I'd booked there for some luxury - the menu is entirely different and more expensive, as well as the pictures misrepresenting the drab spa they actually have. When I said the spa was more expensive than the list I had been sent via Facebook before booking, literally the...
