  • The 10 Best Budget Hotels in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

Hotels That Guests Love in Kota Kinabalu
  • It was a cheap room that we needed for 7 hours during a layover in KK.

  • Pros - within budget, connected to 1 Borneo Mall, staff are accommodating

  • We paid extra for a sea view. It was worth it for the sunsets alone. The room was comfortable but the en suite was separated from the main living area by moving panels and the door to the toilet had frosted glass. Looked modern and contemporary but was actually a bit awkward. Discovered room service breakfasts which were 20 ringats cheaper than in the restaurant, massive in quantity and really tasty. The sheer volume of food in an American breakfast meant that you could use surplus for lunch. The staff were charming too.

  • Lounge is nice and cozy. Fairly new and very clean. Near the airport but a bit far from downtown but it's just 10myr Grab car away which is fairly cheap. Bathroom is always clean. Staff is very nice and accommodating, all speaks in decent English.

  • It was very cheap,clean and comfy for budget traveller. Close to the centre of Kota Kinabalu, and tourist friendly. The receptionist also very polite and helpful.
