If you want a budget hotel this one might be for you but if intent to stay longer then i suggest you look for other hotel that really worth every cents of your money...But the room was bit small with no fridge, not enough light, Cockroaches in the room, glass smell .....

We stayed for one night and just for shower and sleep before travel to Kinabalu Park. This hotel is very basic and you can just walk to the Mamak restaurant for breakfast.. Overall room, staff and public parking is okey...

Karaoke outside room, goes until early hours of morning. Day staff are nice but night staff very rude as they are sick of all the constant complaints about the karaoke and many people requesting to change rooms.

I booked a transfer from the airport, this was confirmed by email, no one showed up. Could not pay by visa on arrival, annoying, as I need to use visa for a later travel insurance claim, they would not budge. First night in Asia for a few years, I forget that smells, noise, things that rattles are to be expected....

Good short stay stop over. Happy staff, room good but nice to have coffee & teas with it. WiFi good in rooms. Some updates were going onbut all good. I would stay again.. price reasonable. Taxis just outside and markets. 5 mins away is buses. Plenty of places to eat and look around.
