AR Residences
Central Business District,Kota Kinabalu - View on map
"Con: no TV and bathroom was quite slippery Pros: I love the look and simplicity of the place. What you see in the pictures is what you get, which is very unusual I have to say. We booked 2 rooms, both were clean, spacious and comfortable. The place is a little outside of the hustle and bustle of the city. Looking from outside the gates, I was quite pessimist as the area looked quite dodgy but once the gate opened, I was actually amazed. If you are driving, you shouldnt worry abt your car as the gates around the perimeter are high and the place is with cctv. Check in was smooth and easy, staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi was great. Thank you, AR Residence. Would love to come again. "

Seaside Travellers Inn
Papar,Kota Kinabalu - View on map
"We really enjoyed our time at the Seaside travellers Inn.... We actually booked another night because we liked it so much. The rooms were adequate for what we needed...we spent most of the time in the pool. The breakfasts were great. For the price of the room we expected toast and jam but there were a number of options......Rice, noodles, oats, fruit, toast, homemade jam, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. There was a nice little area near reception where we could borrow books and drink coffee and tea throughout the day. Our children LOVED the pool and the small slide set....we actually dragged the slide over and made a waterslide. The view from the restaurant is pretty beautiful. We chose to eat down the road at D'souka...a great little restaurant 3 minutes down the road! Great local hotel!"

Escape Backpackers Kk
Central Business District,Kota Kinabalu - View on map
"This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in three months backpacking through South East Asia. The bed is comfortable, and they provide curtains which gives you more privacy. The staff is really kind and they give you a real breakfast: Milk, cereals, juice, cake, pancake, peanut butter, jam, noodles, even sausages! And the shower was even better than mine at home! If you smoke don't worry there is a smoking area for you "
