Cititel Express Kota Kinabalu

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The locations is great, almost central to everything, if not the walk isn't long. Uber ride from airport to this hotel is about 12-15 MYR around 4pm and depends on traffic. The only bad thing about this is the small size rooms. I got the standard room with city view, It's really small, about 100 sqft and bathroom.

In the three days I stayed there I was awaken no less than 15-16 times by a guest slamming his/her door. I have experienced this before, especially on hotels with too many room close-by, but never to this extend. The apparent reason is that guests do not trust the locking system (indeed many locks seem a bit old) but also many of them seem to be first time traveller and have not a lot of consideration for others. There also are renovations going on (on the 6th and 7th floors I was told) so all in all this was NOT a restful stay. Rooms are modern enough and air conditioning (with climate control) is simply fantastic. But there is no small fridge (nor minibar) and the cable tv system is very limited. But wifi worked great.
