Perfect experience”

If you are looking for a clean, welcoming and reliable luxury experience, look no further. My wife and I visited with our 1-year-old son, and we were welcomed and looked after as soon as we stepped through the door. A huge shout out to Farrah, in particular. All the staff were fantastic, but Farrah took our Hilton experience to the next level. She was very attentive to our son and made our experience as smooth as possible. If you see this, thank you, Farrah! Our only regret is that we did not stay for longer. Many other hotels on our trip did not meet our expectations. However, the Hilton exceeded them in every way. We would look at Hiltons for future trips for sure. Great stay!

Excellent”

The price was affordable compared to the facilities, and the service was very friendly. Everything was so great that there's nothing more to say. The only downside is that there is no microwave in the room, but that's understandable as it may be a decision made by the hotel for fire prevention. I especially liked the bathroom.

Cleanest and Best Facilities in Kota”

Stayed at a total of 3 hotels. Stayed for 2 nights each. The cleanest and best facilities. The first 2 nights were at Hyatt Regency, the next 2 nights were at Hilton, and the last 2 days were at Le Meridien Hotel. The location was a bit far, but there was no noise or smell, which was good. - Hyatt Regency is too old and not a Hyatt chain hotel. The oldest and many locals use it. However, the hotel breakfast had the most variety. - Except for the location, Hilton has the best facilities and swimming pool. There is a swimming pool on the 11th floor rooftop, and the atmosphere is good. The sauna facilities are also excellent. It was quiet because it was on the mountain side, and it was actually quiet and good. It takes about 10 minutes on foot to reach it, so it seems to overcome the handicap of the location. - Le Meridien is located in front of the night market, so there is a lot of noise and the smell of the night market. It is noisy, and there is noise and the smell of fish being grilled at the night market until late at night. The breakfast is the worst of the three. There are not many types either. However, the sunset on the 14th floor rooftop is the most fantastic. It is said that the sunset on Tanjung Aru Beach is the best. However, the sunset viewed from the 14th floor of Meridien was the most beautiful. Especially with various boats in the sunset, it felt more beautiful. If I go to Kota Kinabalu again in the future, I would probably stay at Hilton Hotel, watch the sunset from the rooftop of Le Meridien, and have a beer. The newly built Holydean in front of Hilton Hotel looked clean, but I couldn't evaluate it because I didn't stay there. If I go again, I would probably go to Hilton or Holydean.
