I think this was one of the nice hotels i Kota Kinabalu. Not too new and some better maintenance is possible, but for the prices offered, it's definitely OK. My observations from that hotel and from the next, in Sandakan, show that probably in all Malaysia (or at least in Borneo) there is something to be improved in housekeeping. It took some effort to receive towels, there were some chambermaid's hairs on the floor... things like that are definitely not the best, even though I won't remember the place with that. Rooms were very spacious, internet worked, even though wasn't too great, but the best thing in this hotel was the breakfast, included in the room rates.

Compliments to the housekeeping team for always making my room tidy and clean whenever I requested for it. Two staff in particular deserves a huge shout out for making my trip in Sabah pleasant. Nur Liza from the reception has been extremely helpful and has went out her way to make my stay comfortable. She assisted and handled my problems well. She is approachable and easy to communicate to in the hotel. Ronald from the Cafe was professional and recommended me the right dessert to eat in the hotel. The food from the cafe and breakfast buffet was decent if I need a quick meal or I am unsure of what to get. Despite the great team behind the hotel, the hotel is a little rundown from the rooms, gym, swimming pool showers and carpark. If there is a renovation to these key areas, Sabah Oriental Hotel would be a definite easy recommendation from me and will have a great potential as it is extremely near to the city centre and key tourist attractions as well. Until there is a significant improvement to the hotel conditions, this hotel will remain as a good budget hotel for travellers especially for solo guests. Will be happy to return back to the hotel when I visit Sabah soon again. Thank you for taking good care of me.

Overall ok. If property can provide proper access to the lobby from LG parking (i.e. lift) it's much better.
