    Is just a few km away from the airport. So if you need only astay for the night just do it. The rooms are very small but you get free drinking water. The fare from the airport witha taxi is about 30 myr.

    My name was not in their system. I have to show them the email on my iPhone & the hotel insist even there is no booking. After an hour of checking they said it wad in another computer. I sincerely hope your company can advise this hotel on future booking to avoid embarrassment to the guest.

    I am quite particular when comes to which hotel to stay in all my business trips. I usually go for a 3-star hotel with good cleaniness, good facilities and locate in a safe area. Cititel has all the 3 characteristics. The hotel is rather new, everything is new and modern in design, therefore it is comfortable to stay in. Cititel is also not far from the shopping malls i.e 10 - 20 mins walking distance. Just infront of the hotel, there is a taxi point where 5 - 6 taxi are always available to take passenger. It is very convenience. It is value for money and i would definitely select this hotel again in my next trip to Kota Kianbalu.

    First, the room is rather small. I was staying in a room with a queen size bed and it is meant for 2 persons. But i was glad i stay alone otherwise there isn't sufficient space in the room for 2 persons to move around at the same time. Second, i was surprised that access to internet (wi-fi)is not included in the published room rate. Although it cost extra RM10/= (i am not sure if it's on daily basis), but i feel it should be F.O.C because wi-fi is considered a basic necessity nowaday.

    Good location. Within 5-10 minutes walking distance, my family and I can reach shopping complexes nearby e.g. Centrepoint, Warisan Square, Warisan Merdeka etc. Filipino Market and Sunday Market (Gaya Street).

    A bit pricey for this type of small room (Superior twin no window). Sleep was disturbed as the room are not soundproof. Noises from people walking in the corridor, closing the door can be heard.

  • Single

    Easy access to rooms, well cleaned, internet, walking distance to shops/ restourants etc,

    Rooms are much smaller

  • Group of friends

    Good location, low price.

    Tiny rooms, ok for one night stopover

  • Family with children

    The location. It's the most convince location as we can find lots of food stalls and shopping complexes. All of this places are walking distance.

    The room were too small even for a twin superior.

    the room to small compare to other hotel around for the amount RM130 (inclusive tax). not worth. i think this is the first and last i stay in this hotel.
