Hyatt Regency Kinabalu5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Everything was Alright, except I was expecting a newer Hotel. I do not have any problem with Oldish hotels, except I could not help but notice that we could have booked rooms in much newer properties for the same price. Having said that, i feel I am getting less value for my money. It would have felt like better value if they had lowered their room rate, compared to the competition (that were newer properties, and more central). But all the staff were very friendly and helpful in 5-star fashion; and our room was very spacious, except we had no tub.
Some rooms have issues such as noise from bar, sea view room in which you can see the half of the view. Better keep requesting room changes
I was very happy with the hotel I would stay there again
Location was within walking distance to most places in downtown. Only the pool was being renovated but that forced me to visit the nearby islands. Doormen were knowledgeable and helpful in directing me to local spots and restaurants.
The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you. the rooms are very well furnished and comfortuble. The on-going refurbishment tends to get on your nerves after a while and due to these works the pool is out of use - but they will supply transport down to the Meridian free of charge. There is no beach near by however for @ 40 Ritzel return you can go to one of the near by islands which is well worth the effort
We (my brother and I, age 21 & 19) arrived on the morning of 23 Jan for a 3 night stay in Kota Kinabalu. We booked the Hyatt due to the cheap price (US$60/night), most probably so cheap because it is currently undergoing renovations. We expected the renovations (thanks to their website) and were prepared for it. For the price we paid, I am definitely not in a position to complain about the very audible drilling that took place from 9am - 4.30pm. Neither am I complaining about the slight tinge of "renovation smell" in the corridor. However, the room, while dated, was actually very clean and well maintained. Service was definitely what you would expect at any other Hyatt establishment. Absolutely no complains there. To sum it up, if you are planning to stay here from now till end-2010 (when their renovations are slated to be completed), do expect inconveniences due to the renovations. But, I believe that they have reduced their rates for this period, so its up to you if you want to save some money and put up with all that. Should you want to pay more, definitely try the "Le Meridien", which is located in a slightly more central location and is not in renovations.
