10/10 Exceptional

City Center
Pleasant stay at Hilton Kota Kinabalu. We used it for a short stay within the city, close to the airport before we were off our resort. Really convenient from all the markets especially to Gaya street where you can enjoy the weekend activities and mingling with the locals. The hotel is very well kept as well and the staff were very pleasant.

6/10 Good

Hotel overall was fine except for the fact that the air-conditioning was not cold. It was cool at best. The blackout curtains / blinds still allowed light in at all the edges. This too was not ideal.

4/10 Fair

Good but disappointed
The stay itself was pleasant, and the beds were very comfortable. However, I would have liked to see that the hotel would be more eco-friendly. There are still plastic water bottles in the hotel room, instead of filtered water that you can fill your own water bottles with, and that the shampoo, conditioner and shower gel were in small plastic bottles. Better with dispensers that they have at other five-star hotels. Also, the hotel missed to book the cab for the airport, and we had to wait for almost 30 minutes for the cab to arrive. That is not what I expect from Hilton.
