          9.2

          Staff very nice, design very pleasant, location very convenient for shopping because located in a brand new shopping center with a lot of international shop. Outside swimming pool welcome after a day trip. So very good choice for few days stay in KK with a good value for money

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          right next to a big shopping complex.

          no hotel free parking at all.be ready to pay for parking if driving.some of the mountain view obscured by the next door hotel.during my stay there's some renovation going on in some rooms and can be a bit noisy if you are staying next door,on higher or lower floor to it.

        • Single
          5.8

          The room was stylish and very clean. The bathroom had a bath, which was great.

          Check-in took a long time. There was no window in my room, which was apity as I was on the 19th floor. There was no remote control for the a/c and the choice of tv channels was quite limited.

        • Single
          4.2

          within my budget.

          No parking lot available making hotel guest very inconvenience during loading/unloading of luggage. The cleanliness of the housekeeping was very poor. The bathub was not properly clean. The bed is extremely uncomfortable.

          Excellent staff, room upgraded, very helpful.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Easy to look for the food and shopping for the basic requirement.

          Quiet old and need some maintenance and renovate be more modernate is an advantage!

        • Group of friends
          8.0

          Reputable, comfortable & spacious room which we found them to be very satisfactory. Hope to stay more often in future and hopefully Novetel will have promotions from time to time to boost Sabah tourism.

          Parking problem. Should provide free parking or at least minumum parking fees instead of per entry and per day basis, this is the drawback which hopefully Novetel will work out with Hypermall authority.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          The location is suitable for me because it is at a shopping mall.

          Didn't realise that parking facility under the hotel is no longer there. The bed we slept on was noisy and kind of uncomfortable, gave me backache.

        • Older travelers
          2.4

          Staff poor, hotel in terrible location. Rooms smelly, no service and food disgusting. I would never stay at this hotel as it is not up to standard for what we paid for a Novotel Hotel.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          I like to location of the hotel being within the boundaries of the shopping centre.

          Reception desk staff should be appear friendlier by smiling more. Often looked too serious and unapproachable.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          The room is spacious yet comfortable...can accommodate for least 3adults + 2kids...

        • Family with children
          7.4

          The staff is very polite, friendly & helpful.Speaks good English & no problem for foreigner. The room is rather clean.

          Quite a distance from KK town & 1Borneo area is not well develop. The hotel services is rather slow. The room is not as big as indicated.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          It was clean and comfortable, good breakfast, next door to a good shopping complex which also had a good selection of eateries.

          It was a bit too far from the city although the free bus during the day was a bonus. Taxis to the city were expensive

        • Single
          6.6

          check in strictly after 12, sometimes not convenient due to early flight arrival in KK. Should be a bit flexiblre.

        • Single
          9.6

          Hotel quiet, staff very nice, very clean..... Good hotel !

          Maybe a little far from town.
