I chose this hotel since I had an early morning flight out and didn't want to risk getting stuck in traffic if stayed in the city. The hotel is located very close to the airport (5 minutes from Terminal 2 - Air Asia) and 10 minutes from Kota Kinabalu International Airport. The hotel also provides a free shuttle service as well.
The room was basic but comfortable and while the hotel is not located in the city per se, the city center can very easily be reached by taking a taxi for about 15 ringgit. You could also possibly walk into the city if you have time to kill and want to catch some rays.

... for the very first time I was immediately won over by his broad warm smile and happy disposition. My fellow travellers were a diverse bunch, all united in our desire to discover this small north east pocket of Borneo.
Blessed with clear skies, Mount Kinabalu was instantly recognisable when it came into view with its distinctive craggy peaks of granite which dominated the sky line. I was surprised at how it captivated me, once I had it in sight ...
... up close and personal with the many insects that bite.
Each night there's a sunset ceremony at a bar on the beach where the staff run about in traditional costume banging drums and whooping and hollering before lighting the gas lights. As you do. Other than that we've tended to spend our evenings working our way through the cocktail menu while watching live bands. All good apart from the random Kitchen Band whose drum ...
... cup of tea without a hike to the cafe; you can make toast and cover it in Marmite, ( If you can find some of course, - We found some very old and dusty Marmite on a back shelf in the supermarket pharmacy, - I think they thought it might be some kind of insect repellent). We have accidentally stumbled across a perfect place to kick back and chill (as we kids from the seventies say) and do some reading on the 4000 - odd islands of ...
