This is the best place to stay because a hotel is nearby pasar philipines, seafood stall and jesselton point jetty. Every night we dinner with the fresh seafood at seafood stall next to pasar philipines. Just 3 minute walk from hotel. I also can see a beautiful scenery from my room during sunset.

The location is good, the staff were friendly and helpful. Great buffet breakfast. The pool doesn't get much sun, at least when we were there in January; maybe another time of year it could be different. Hotel was being refurbished and we had to switch rooms because the sultan of Brunei was visiting... yes really. Because of this we got...

We arrived here from spending a week on the river in lodges, so seemed liked absolute luxury in comparison. Everything was fab, from the arrival, check-in, room, swimming pool and breakfast. We were upgraded to the 12th floor, which was an added bonus and brilliant view of the harbour and market. Room was spacious, clean and amazing bathroom products. We...

Checking In - Checking in was neither fast nor slow. Someone else was allowed to cut the que and entertained right before me while I was waiting for the other person being checked in. If that person forgot something when she checked in earlier, she should have been politely asked to wait until the person waiting in line is entertained....

Nice hotel in a great location. We did have a mixup the first night, being placed on a smoking floor, even after confirming a nonsmoking room. We were quickly moved in another room. During our stay, we meet the hotel manager, and she was welcoming and very kind. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
