Best in the City.

We booked into this hotel for a bit of luxury after climbing Kinabalu. It was, by far, the nicest hotel in the area. That said, I still think it was a bit overpriced considering the pool area is not particularly large and the hotel is quite small in comparison to other hotels we have stayed at in the past.. Our room was one of the large central rooms with bay window over looking the South China Sea. It was simply decorated, fresh looking, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was large and well appointed with separate shower and bath. The hotel had a prime seafront location and overlooked the handicraft and weekend market. All that the City had to offer was within walking distance from Le Meridien, which was a bonus. The staff were genuinely hospitable. They were welcoming and helpful and a credit to their employers. I hope they got a Christmas Bonus! Lovley hotel, lovely relaxing stay in KK.
