First of all, the location is about 20-min drive from KK town which is not so convenient after all. Secondly the room is old and I suspect some bed bugs there because we got some bug bites after staying 2 nights there. Room is very small as usual, and those rooms without window is not recommended at all. The only... More

Stayed 10 nights. Rooms are decent size (for one), great fans, perfect showers, excellent housekeeping. Located in a massive mall (as are 2 other hotels, 4 or 5 star hotel), but easy to get into town using the shuttles; perfect for single travellers. People travelling in a big group will probably need to take a taxi, as the shuttle is... More

Although the building is old, I see that the housekeepers try their very best to maintain the cleanliness of the room. The front staff were very friendly and helpful.

Good locality beside the 1Borneo Hypermall. Free shuttle bus link between 1Borneo and Warisan Square (KK town, nearby Filipino market/handicraft market) every hour (waiting at North Atrium). Will rate better if shuttle service linking KKIA is provided.
