Pool was nice but small
Staff were so unhelpful, either couldn't give us information on tours or gave us incorrect information, failed to make wake up call we booked in. Facilities very basic. Food in Restaurant was not great.
Staffs are friendly and quick to respond to our needs.
The aircon in our room is not cold.
food was great, staff were really helpful
wifi was rubbish
Swimming pool and staff, free shuttle bus.
There are only a few standard rooms and the vast majority are in the basement either with a window that looks at a brick wall or no window at all. Internet in the basement was not working and was generally irratic throughout the hotel. Strong unpleasant smell on first night in the room. You get what you pay for as the standard rooms are cheaper than the superior rooms but, personally I would avoid them if you want to stay at this hotel.
Room had no window Long way from town
Big room and clean
Easy to locate. The outside looks like a castle. Beautiful exterior
smells badly in our room. Smells like a toilet. Everywhere was under renovation. Wanted to use the pool but was less than inviting. Our room was down at the basement through a creepy corridor.
I like kota kinabalu
Comfy rooms Pool
Very smelly corridor (like a picture between a pet shop and school canteen) Bad smell around pool too (like sewage) No breakfast with standard room No wifi in room
Location is good for me.
It was the staff that made our stay so enjoyable. From the front desk crew to the office management, room service and breakfast crew and not forgetting the smiling door crew at the hotel entrance. We can honestly say that of all hotels that we have ever stayed at over the years, the Palace Hotel Kota Kinabalu staff stood shoulders above the rest for their friendly smile, welcoming attitude and sheer pleasure to be around.
I liked the location next to the Masonic Lodge
- Gym was nice and having a pool was a bonus - nice that they have a shuttle service to some key locations ( although doesnt go so often) - room was spacious and comfortable overall - rate wasnt so expensive
- If you miss the shuttle, its about 25-30 min walk to port - we stayed in UG level and it was smelly, probably due to some renovation/painting work
Staff is friendly and warm, There's a touch of nature with the trees and the chirping birds around the perimeter of the hotel
A bit far from the center tho easily accessible.
room, bed. cleaning , dining room and reception staff -polite and helpful. Filtered water in room view from Tangerine room balcony shuttle bus coffee and croissants at breakfast empty pool
Not being informed of the British Council enrolment that took place in the basement early in the morning.I was forced to walk through the area full of young men to reach the pool.It was embarrassing. noise of boiler or similar coming from next room
Everything is excellent
I love it!!!!
Aircon did not work, was very hot in the room
Sauna room was not working.
Very spacious & clean room. Bathroom spotless & strong water pressure. Wifi speeds acceptable
Aircon took too long to cool down room. Unable to adjust louvres to direct it to the bed
The staff was very accommodating and made us comfortable and catered to our every request.
Comfort environment,nice staffs,valuable
Why the after cleaning, the room area still have the ants?
Excellent checking in with good staff.The free welcome drink was very much appreciated. They packed a really good breakfast as we were leaving early.The wake up call and the taxi were on time.
We booked a room without a window but it didn't matter as we left early. Airport transfers would be great if provided.
The food was good The bed was good The facilities was good
The Ironing board, was not so good, because the board was not padded properly.
