This hotel is right on the waterfront, close to the central market and city centre. It is very much a budget hotel. The room was very small. We only had one small/medium towel each and breakfast was very basic (not even including fruit juice - just cordial!) but for the money, it was a great base for us in Sandakan....

Basic hotel with good sized rooms - we had a room with a queen bed and it had an annexe for an additional single bed so very spacious. Clean. Good small bathroom. Breakfast is minimal but sufficient. Staff friendly.

Was here for 3 days on business trip. The location was just nice, next to Harbour Square. Lots of eateries nearby but if you want to taste the seafood, goods restaurants are about 10-15 minutes drive. The hotel was opened in 2014 if I'm not mistaken. The room was quite clean, just nice for a business traveler like me. Basic...

First impression, nice. Our room was on the 2nd floor, as soon as we entered the hallway it smelt of dampness, like wet carpet, then our room was like they have had a cigarette party, disgusting. Got upgraded to a waterfront room, was cleaner. Although the window was held in by a piece of wood, with a 10cm gap. Would...
