Overall satisfying”

The duplex suite was worth the money for family and group especially. It was really spacious. And I liked it because it was somewhat isolated due to its security. There were shops surrounding the soho such as Domino’s Pizza, Orange and a pastry just steps away from the soho lobby. And a walk across from the soho leads to the business park with restaurants. Imago Mall lies just ahead of the business park. Overall I enjoyed the convenience and the comfort of soho. The maintenance of the soho is rather bad though; the bathroom walls were dirty, seams with mould, and the bathroom downstairs was without hot water.

Very good”

Booked a 3 bed apartment but was given a 2-bed apartment. However extra matresses were given (with no extra covers). Pros: 1) Good location - walking distance to Imago, few eateries and launderette. 2) Secure building location with separate passes for building entry. 3) Superb verb of the Mt Kinabalu from living area. Cons: 1) Only one pass for room and building given. 2) No cleaner during the length of our stay. Rubbish was also not taken out of apartment. 3) No porter service or trolley provided so had to haul luggage in batches. 4) Directly under flight path of incoming/out-going planes so bear with the noise. Parking a bit confusing at first but host was very kind in showing us exactly where to go and find our specific parking area. Overall I would recommend this place to families with children but those travelling with elderly with difficulties in climbing stairs might want to skip the 2-level apartment.

Satisfactory service”

Check in was fast. Facilities in the room are good except that no cooking was allowed. I have stayed in many apartments but this is the first time that cooking is not allowed . There is a gas hob available and I don't understand why it has to be there if cooking is not allowed in the building. Location wise also good. Imago is just across, the famous Gaya street market is also nearby. Suria Sabah, Centerpoint and Jesselton Mall is just a few minutes drive. My thanks to a certain lady named Shirley who was very helpful. She helped me to have a speedy check-in and also directed me to the car park. I would recommend to stay in this apartment.

Excellent Location, Horibble parking system”

located just a few blocks from Imago, location wise it was excellent as its near to everything & just walking distance but the parking system is rather confusing for the first timer! there is so much rule to follow. They only provide 1 parking basement spot so you can opt to park at Imago (RM $3) per entry for the extra car. Parking spot at the hotel area is only cheap during weekends which is RM2 per day but during weekdays it is charge per hour. Overall, the hotel was clean, room and bed are spacious but you are not allowed to cook in the kitchen! which is why do you even has kitchen then lol.
