The hotel was located besides the Kampung Air Taxi Station. Quite strategic location for those who want to get a pubic transport (Taxi/Airport Bus). Very convenience to visit the interesting place in Kota Kinabalu since it was located at the city center. All interest location are reachable by walking distance. The room was quite comfortable with clean room and free...

The first thing I noticed when I checked in the room was the missing handle locks on both windows, though I'm not too bothered by this.

We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is very clean and is in a great location for walking around KK. The rooms are small but has a space for hanging some clothing (often missing in this price range of hotel). The staff were very friendly. If wifi is important, ask to be close to the receiver - we had...
