        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.

        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.

        • Average rating

        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.

        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

        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.

        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

        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.

        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

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