we stayed for 4 days in chinese new year season, two rooms for 5 people, and all of them were vista sea view. you can see sunset at your room, and rooms are clean and comfortable. the best point I deeply moved was hotel employee`s kindness and perfect caring! lee you jin, the korean staff, was the best manager I`ve ever seen. I have traveled about 20 countries and stayed for more than 50 hotels, but I`ve never seen perfect staff like her. our family feels more happiness when we come back to hotel than when we traveling daytime because of her. every morning she serve our breakfast with her smile and kindness, and, she was so diligent that the very seeing of her makes us energetic. when we started travel at morning, everytime she advised good tips for us with her smile, and it was always key point of that day`s touring. It was fantastic travel for our family because of her. I strongly urge hotel to raise her salary! Rodney was briliant and best serving manager in our trip! when we have a breakfast, he always take care of our members. I was so impressed that he treat us like his family members. we feel like become a President because of his perfect serving! I think he works very passionate. I see he working at hotel almost whole day! it was very impressive to see his effort for guest of hotel! I think he will be promoted soon. le merdian is happy hotel because you have very excellent staff!

I stayed from Feb-5 to Feb-12 at this hotel. This hotel was perfect for shopping and tour and room was quite big and clean. All staffs I met are very kind and courteous. There were seasonal fruits and various breads in the breakfast place. Not only breakfast but room service and pool bar were tasty. This staying was the best enjoyable staying among SPG hotels. I would like to say SPECIAL THANKS! Rodney O'brien – His Service was perfect! After checking-in I got the handwritten letter in the room. That was enough to felt welcoming and impressed to my family. We cannot forget his anniversary event never ever. That was the most memorable event. Whenever I have any difficulty ,he fixed a problem smoothly and he always served us as a friend and family. Ms.Lee,Yoojin- She was the only one can speak Korean. So she was very helpful for Korean and performed us warmly with a smile also presented high-minded, pureness and kindness And the staff that checked-out for me I’m sorry but I don’t remember her name. Whenever I met him he smiled us and called my name. He made me feel special and valuable. My wife and son can’t wait to go this hotel. I’m sure that my next vacation might be Le meridian KK again. So much thank you all guys. See you soon !

We stayed in Le Merdien KK for a week for our cny holiday. Overall we were impressed with the excellent services provided and also the friendliness of the staff. The room was very nicely furnished n decorated ,clean n comfortable. The buffet breakfast was great wth lots of varieties. We enjoyed the access to the lounge for the cocktail daily. All the staff were very friendly especially the Front Desk Manager, Mr Rizan and the F&B Manager, Mr Jammaz. We loved our trip and looking forward to coming back. Gong Xi Fatt Cai to everyone celebration. :)

We checked in this hotel around 2 a.m. dragging our fatigued body. However, when we enter our room, the place was cosy and well equipped. Also this hotel had the highest standard of cleanliness. Most of all, everyday's breakfast buffet was excellent :) It was so delicious that I could not stop eating much. Whenever we eat breakfast. the staff always cared us with a friendly manner. The location of this hotel was also good with walking distance to the famous Filipino market and fish market right in front of the hotel across the road. I recommend you to stay and relax here :-D

We stayed for a night here to attend a meeting. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The location is good with walking distance to the famous Filipino market right in front of the hotel across the road. The room is however, relatively small despite the good lighting options provided. For the facilities and services, I am still in the opinion that it was overpriced. Nevertheless, I notice that all the hotels of the similar range in Kota Kinabalu have been overpriced, mainly due to the tourist demand I assume.

Check in: 5/2/18 Check out: 9/2/18 Type of Trip: Business Positive comments: - 1) Without a doubt one of my favorite hotel if stay in Sabah, Malaysia 2) Upon my arrival, I was greeted and welcomed warmly by extremely friendly ground staff. 3) My check-in process less than a minute (mobile check). My room’s access cards are ready and available for collection upon arrival. Same goes with my check-out process. Smooth transaction. 4) Club lounge was excellent with live light music by local band. I have a great and wonderful evening. 5) Varieties of local delicacies to choose from (depend on your appetite). Night market and local bazar just in-front of the hotel (walking distance). You should try local fruit as well especially 'durian' Sedap giler!! 6) Astonishing sun set view (as always) 7) Focused recognition to Mr. Rizan and his staff for their utmost hospitality. Constructive observations: - 1) WIFI connection need to be improve. I have experienced frequent disconnection during my entire stay. My Room 0942. At the end I have to use my own data plan which kind of frustrating for me. I sure give Le Meridien KK a 5-star rating if only the WIFI connection was stable and less hassle. But in overall, I really enjoy my trip and I will stay at LM KK again without a doubt.

Stayed at this hotel from 15-17 Feb 2018, Room 822 & 821. Simply major improvement from my last visit. Room newly refurbish. Excellent service. Great food. Just a minor setback where my Room 822 got ants. No big deal anyway.

The entire team went above and beyond to ensure that my stay exceeded my expectations. A very special thank you to Racheal, Suresh,Marie and Pavin of all your great service. The location of the hotel, selection of breakfast, and rooms was excellent. Thank you... would certainly come back again.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during our Malaysian holidays. The hotel is excellent, very attentive and friendly staff. The suite we stayed in spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast varied and plentiful with choice of asian and western food. The bar area very nice with live music in the evening. Would stay here again. The only complain I would have there was no bread of any sort one morning for breakfast 1 hour after the breakfast started. Otherwise top marks.

I can't remember the name of manager but he was so kind and solved our problem about reservation. The best part of the Le Meridien is its location which is really close to so many tourist attractions and shopping malls. Also, its room conditions was really clean and breakfast was good. Le Meridien KK offers many cost-effective services.
