The services and facilities offered are beyond expectations based on the price rate even though you book directly with the hotel. I am grateful that they double confirmed with guest whether guest prefers smoking or non-smoking room before they place you in the room. Most budget hotels nowadays do not have such etiquette. The location of the hotel is slightly further from the populated area at Sandakan's Mile 4 (Area of the hotel). Tourists who never been to Sandakan will have to expect some walking before reaching most eateries and stores but the price is definitely worth it.

Pros: generally well maintained premises and convenient location; very personable staff who offer excellent services.

Grab is easy to get here. They did provide prayer mat for muslim. However, there's no bidet spray near the toilet. Only the one inside the toilet bowl. No lift, so for those with heavy luggage, can consider booking a lower floor.
