1 Borneo Hotel @ Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
We checked into the 1 Borneo Hotel (formerly known as Novotel Kota Kinabalu Hotel under management of Accor and now changed to Klagan Regency) when we reached Kota Kinabalu. We tried to find the hotel parking but to our dismay it didn’t have any allocation for inhouse guests. We have to park our car at the limited parking lot outside the hotel. Hotel is adjacent to 1Borneo shopping mall, unfortunately there is nothing much to shop about.
Located quite far from the city and about 30mins from the airport, the location is not really great for leisure or business trip.
Check in counter
Our Superior Room was decent, dressed in soothing subtle wooden tone with wooden flooring and equipped with a comfy king size bed.
Working desk and flat screen TV. Free WIFI is provided but the signal was a bit weak.
Amenities such as iron and board, electronic safe, coffee and tea making facilities and complimentary drinking water are provided.
The bathroom – fret not for the see-through window as you can put down the blind anytime if you don’t want to be seen ^__*
Bath tub with hand shower.
The bathroom was clean and completed with basic bathroom amenities such as shower gel and shampoo as well as hair dryer.
The swimming pool area with both adult and kid pool look good however the maintenance of the pool need to be improved though.
Breakfast was at the Square Restaurant, the variety isn’t much with limited choices of local and western cuisine such as typical sausage, eggs, baked beans, nasi lemak, porridge, cereals, bread and pastries.
Other facilities such as computers corner and family/kid’s play room available at the lobby area.
Verdict: A really average hotel in my book, will consider a more convenient location for my net KK trip.
