      I went on my trip last year November, and booked this hotel. So far everything is excellent, value for money too and location to market and shopping mall is nearby. although the room spacing was good for solo traveler if book for single queen size bed. Others is perfect, staff is good and they will help you carry your stuff to your room. 9.5/10 is my rate.

      Staffs are amazing. Facilities are worth what I was paying for which for me was easy on my budget (iron & iron board upon request, hair dryer, daily change of towels & bedding set, hot/warm shower, water heater & excellent air conditioner) Location was perfect but, the hotel is getting shabby which in urgent need of renovation. Whenever I am in Kota Kinabalu, I will always stay here no matter how shabby it gets. Cleanliness upon first day entering, it was 5/10 but personally it was bearable. Hopefully, in the near future, this hotel will have its' make over that it derserved & I would not mind paying more.

      Just stayed for one night. Clean room & toilet with comfortable bed. Had good night sleep.. For light sleeper i suggest to exhaust yourself on the day to have good sleep at the night without notice any sound disturbance.. Otherwise earplug may help. Heater and air conditioning functioning well.. But TV without channel..

      Worth for money as the location is just across the road from Filipino Market. Just 5 mins walk to the market.
