Stay long at Sabah Oriental Hotel....
Every aspect axcept
Ramadhan buffet breakfast.
Great staff that wanted to make your stay as enjoyable as possible
Need to take a short taxi ride to get to town centre
I like the privacy at this hotel
This hotel has fan in the room. Good option for those who don't comfort with aircond
Rated as 4**** stars hotel should serve 4**** facilities and service. Example 1. Noise from outside can hear clearly in the room 2.breakfast should open sharp at 6.30 am.
The WiFi connection was difficult to connect, no response
Reception Staff were generally good; efficient, friendly, attentive and with a generally good command of English. The Room was spacious and furnishings were comfortable (to a point). The location was within walking distance of KK's centre and most attractions. Room was reasonably priced. Housekeeping were friendly, efficient and did as thorough job as possible.
Staff at breakfast were not attentive to details, it was common that there would be no crockery or the beverage containers would be empty. I had to call maintenance to fix; a broken lamp, the hair dryer, a wardrobe door that didn't shut properly (leaving the internal light on). The hair dryer was never fixed during my stay, the bath was in a poor state of repair and there were bed-bugs. However, getting out of the hotel means crossing (or joining) a major road which takes almost immediately to a cross-road with KK's main road. It was a nightmare to drive to, so overall despite it's proximity to major amenities the reality of it's location undermines the positive aspects. Room service and bar prices were premium priced, whereas choice and quality didn't always reflect this. The pool, one of the major considerations for selecting this hotel, was closed for the duration of my stay, an alternative was offered free of charge but it was at a resort over an hour's drive away. No compensation other than this was offered.
the location is strategically near to town. ample parking attentiveness staff
i was surprise to know that the pool was under construction as that was my main reason to choose the hotel. soooo disappointed. breakfast spread was same for the three days, no different at all. my room was having electricity trip from day 2 and the maintenance did come and still happening untill the last night at midnight. hotel requested to change room in the middle of the night with my small kids which is so inconvenient for us.
The view and the breakfast is really like american style.
So far so good . Nothing bad .
Breakfast is amazing, staff there is so friendly
Location is not so good, kinda far from ferry and bar/restaurants. Wifi in room is slow and just for one person
Both my husband and I found the hotel is good. The breakfast spread is good. Location of the hotel is convenient and is walking distance to the central area. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Sabah Oriental
It would be better, if the hotel could provide better water dispenser for washing in the toilet.
- Quiet place, but located in city area. - Friendly staff. - Reliable security. - My older children prefer to cross over the walk way road to the Centre Point, etc. - Convenient parking lot.
- Poor Wi-Fi connection. - Cannot go to swimming pool- upsetting my children.
The food is nice. I love my breakfast.
The aircond not cooling enough. A bit warm. The ceiling fan also not helping.
Nothing much in particular.
Price paid for the room considered high. Nothing nearby the hotel. Quite a rundown hotel.
-the aircond not in proper functioning.aircond at lobby colder than at the room. -no extra pillow.extra pillow charged. -simple breakfast for 4star rate hotel.
The front desk staff were friendly. Mervynn Yapp still remembered my name when i returned on 13 May 2014 besides being attentive and warm. Please compliment your front desk staff to keep up the smiling staff.
The breakfast is good but can be improved, probably add few variety with cost control. The restaurant staff looks abit moody, please try to motivate and encourage them via some incentives. Constantly encourage your staff via intrinsic and extrinsic means, that will reflect on their faces when the guests arrive.
location very good
aircond very warm and i did ask change the room but still the other room aircond very warm n not comfortable..
terrible wifi...had to go out to do my emails in a different hotel. bathroom never renovated broken tiles....etc. Could not stay in the hotel bar at night because of the airco... Good if you're a pathologist..the place was freezing cold also diningroom. Only suitable for muslims as they seem to dress up with 3 layers of clothes..that's why they need that ridiculous airco on 5 degrees Europeans cant stand that... So glad to check out after 5 days
