Decided to splurge on Grand Borneo after staying in some basic rooms in KK and Sandakan. Opted for the Grand Deluxe package which was surprisingly nice, 85 USD per night . We were ushered to the 15th floor for a special checkin, beer, wine, juice drinks and snacks. The room was like a modern studio apartment without the kitchen. Separate...

I was among the group which checked-in with Kelvin Bong on 9 June. My roommate & I placed 2 dirty spoons (side-by-side & face up) on a tissue paper at an obvious corner of the writing table so that the housekeeper would notice it. However, when we're back in the afternoon of 10 June, the dirty spoons remained untouched. On...

This hotel is an excellent place to stay. The rooms are clean, modern and hotel staff are friendly. However, the buffet breakfast served is the same everyday as they do not change the menu. We do not mind the distance as we have a car. And since it is attached to the mall, we find it convenient as we have...
