                      It is within the mall and convenient for shopping. However, could have offer to do shuttle services to airport.

                      New hotel nearby the large shopping mall, but with poor maintenance. The swimming pool is very cold. The buffet breakfast is good with veritable choice.

                      The staff was very friendly,helpful and they even allowed us to check-in earlier because we arrived in kk at 11 am. The place was nice,very clean. Our wired internet in room was fault but the staff fixed it immediately and effectively! Great job to Grand Borneo Hotel.

                      The room service make us disappointing. We are planing to make an order at 1.30 am. But,we keep dialing their no but no one answering! We keep dialing till 2.30am, still no answering. I was very hungry at that time! Very disappointed! Hope the hotel management take this complaint. Thanks.

                      The Grand Deluxe Room was comfortable and cosy, especially the bed and pillows.

                      The shower was not warm enough in our room and the breakfast spread could have included a wider variety of items.

                      The bed was awesome and the staff was able to give me a good view facing the mountains.

                      There were some confusion during my room upgrade as earlier one of the staff mention that they have immediate available rooms the day before but the promise was not kept upon the check-in day. Communication was poor amongst the staff.

                      The staffs are very warm and friendly.

                      For the kind of room and the price i have paid..its not worth value.

                      6.6

                      Enviroment is clean and Hotel is linked to Mall Shopping complex. It's not a problem to go out for a dinner except quite a distance from the Town city (KK). If you do not have a own car or rental..it's a concerned..transport seem to be a problem. Driving your own car via the coastal roadway at night a a little bit of problem.especially during strong wind..& raining day...!! Street light not so clear..a bit smoky..mist!! Overall hotel loaction is just nice and cool. Room is just good for couple and too small for family of three.., toilet too small and face wash too shallow..floor getting wet all the times you wash your face...!! Keep up your good work and smile always..!!

                      Nothing I dont like in this hotel..just a room size...it's just good for a couple of two..!! Cleanliness is the best and smell of air is clean and healthy..!! Please keep up your good work at all times..!!

                      The Building itself is badly in need of maintenance. The carpets need a good clean. The finish in the room was chipped and tardy, the bathroom floor looked like it had not been mopped for a while. It is not a 4 star hotel, maybe a 3 to 3.5 at best. We checked out after 4 nights and booked in elsewhere.

                      Comfy bed, excellent hot water and shower pressure, modern room design, a mini fridge to chill drinks, complimentary slippers and direct access from the foyer to the shopping mall. There is a free hourly shuttle bus from 1Borneo hypermall to the town centre (warisan square), with half hourly return trips. Taxi fare from airport to the hotel is 50RM, and 25RM from hotel to town centre.

                      Hotel room only had satellite tv (limited channels, no cable, in-house movies). There is free cable internet but no wireless internet in the room. Free wifi is only available in the lobby and public areas, including some restaurants in the mall. If your room smells smokey from previous occupants, housekeeping do a great job with the air freshener spray bottle.

                      The location is very nice that it is in the same buliding with the mall. Easy to shop and dine.
