This hotel is right next to a night time market - which is great if you want to lose a couple of hours exploring! It reminded me of the markets in Bangkok. The hotel itself was fine. super friendly lobby staff and bedrooms were what I expected from this chain. I was travelling alone and went for the room service...

Spent 2 nights from Sep. 23rd to 25th for holiday with my family. However my child got sick during the stay. In the morning of Sep. 25th, my child got nose-bleeding suddenly, which could not stop for a few minutes. I called the hotel staff for help. They came quickly to help me. The Duty Manager (Mr. Ramasamy) called doctor...

This hotel is very nice. The price was good and we had a great room (1115) overlooking the bay which was stunning at sunset. The room was huge and very comfortable and the service very good. But the pool was just an ordinary pool on the second floor; the hotel restaurant was just an ordinary restaurant! This was all OK...

We spent 3 nights here on arrival in Kota Kinabalu. We did especially book a sea view room and we were not disappointed. It was so entertaining watching the activity on the waterfront and on the water. This hotel is very centrally location and you can walk to most things around the city. The buffet breakfast would have to be...

After a long journey, we were excited to be staying at the Le Meridian. We arrived at about 9:30PM and were crestfallen when we were shown to our room. We immediately noticed a damp musty smell in the room and got the general impression that the room had seen better days. All the things you don't expect from Le Meridien...

A corporate booking was made for me for 29 and 30 Sept at this hotel. However, I was just informed that a mix up occurred thereby no room on 30th. The galling thing was that the hotel did not want to take responsibity for this. I am thinking that because this was a discounted room rate, it was convenient for...

Fairly priced- for the large sized rooms. Not particularly notable in room decor. A clean, spacious lobby. Comfort depends on luck with neighbors; there's minimal sound- proofing. A full-service hotel. Should be renamed a Sheraton; since it's owned by Starwood.

This hotel was such a delight to discover after having spent time in a far inferior place (against my wishes and better judgment) for four days, in another part of Borneo, like walking into paradise! The lobby was beautiful and beckoning, the staff courteous and professional, the water views calming, and then there was the room- what a pretty room,...
