      staff were very helpful and friendly, had initiative and very accommodating. hotel is new and clean and practically 2 minute drive from the airport which was what i wanted.

      The staff are friendly. Room is clean but small. Had nice foot massage (opposite of hotel).

      The bathroom's glass door is not frosted. Thank goodness for the shower curtain and blind for privacy while showering. However, it is still not comfortable having toilet bowl expose to the room. What if you stay with your friend? That would be pretty interesting experience.

      Quick and simple for a hop through Kota kinabalu airport. Perfect for overnight connections. Short free shuttle ride from/to airport.

      No lift/elevator to 3rd floor. Rooms are smaller than average, but okay for quick night cap.

      I only stayed one night, arrived about midnight and left about 11am next morning. Staff were courteous and friendly, even at midnight!. Especially appreciated the free shuttle to the airport, saved all the hassle and expense of a taxi!

      Not impressed with the glass bathroom walls!

      Staff was very friendly and helpful. The situation was very near airport (not too much noise) and it was very easy and cheap to take a local minibus to the city centre of KK. The village Tanjung Aru was nice, there were local supermarkets, erstaurants and bars. Very quiet and nice little village. Staff can help you to organize trips. They had pick up from and to airport and it was really nice service.

      Our room was for three people and it was so small that we had almost difficulties to fit in with our things. Propably it was normal room for two, so for a couple the room is good normal size. They vere renovating some rooms, now the floor in our room was not very nice. Bed was very hard, it was even difficult to sleep sometimes. But if you like hard bed, so this is your dream :-) We didn't like local beach (it was 15 minutes walk from hotel), sea was not clean, some smell problem there too, propably because of waste water. But it was easy to go islands nearby and they were good!

      Great Location

      1. The bed is hard like a rock, 2. The Aircon is facing my head, making a headache. 3. The room is very very small.

      very close to the airport which is very convenience for travellers.would like to suggest the sign/name of the hotel to be bigger like Megah D'Aru so that tourist can view the hotel from far. As it takes me twice to round the road as to find the hotel..: )

      the service & facilties provided

      Pick up in airport arrival hall with free shuttle service back to hotel even at 11:00pm. It is truly thoughtful.

      Free pick up and return to the airport. Staff were efficient and friendly. The shower was great. Clean room. We had some breakfast even though we had to get up for an early flight.

      We were given a windowless room despite requesting one with a window. The room was rather small, although the bathroom was a decent size.

    • Single

      I stayed four nights while attending a conference. I found the staff friendly. The hotel arranged for a free pick up in their hotel van at the airport. They were waiting for me. When I was leaving in the middle of the night, the hotel arranged for me to get to the airport at 4 A.M at a reasonable cost. I was able to arrange with the front desk for rides in the hotel van whenever I needed and pay costs that were the same for a taxi.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The price for the room was very good, and the location to the airport was excellent.

      The room it's self was on the very small side, ok for a one night stop but not ideal for a longer stay.

    • Family with children

      Very friendly and accommodating staff. Inclusive pick up and return to airport

      The beds. The mattresses are impossibly hard!! It was like sleeping on the floor.
