Good place for short stay in Sandakan
There was a mixup with our reservation that didn’t show up in the hotel’s computer. We finally got squared away but had to ask a few times about the problem. It seemed they were reluctant to have to ask us about our booking details but were very nice and apologetic. The room was well appointed and stocked with water, coffee, tea and bathroom amenities. The corridor is warn and in need of carpet and brighter lighting. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast. Just a couple blocks from the waterfront, but Sandakan is not a town you need to plan to stay for more than a day.

Overall good! The rooms are clean and cozy - bed and pillows slightly stiff and it took a long time for them to find my booking and check me in then when I arrived. Seemed to be a little bit of a problem with organisation/communication cause the first day they didn’t know I had paid for breakfast and then the cleaners came to my room and thought I was gonna check out one day prior than my actual check out. But otherwise good service - friendly staff and nice food!

Convenient location
Comfortable enough room with a good bathroom. Wi-fi never seemed to work properly and had to keep logging in again. We were out all day till 4pm but on our return found that the room had not been made up and had to call housekeeping. We had breakfast the first morning but there weren’t many suitable European choices. For some reason our booking for the second day did not include breakfast bu5 we found a cheap restaurant across the road with a more suitable breakfast. Staff in restaurant were helpful. Easy to walk to Agnes Keith House and the harbour.

Can you take the bad with the good?
his hotel did not receive, or did not see, our booking via; no idea if did not confirm our booking. It therefor took hours to get rooms (we booked 2), a lot of confusion; no explanation. Tried to contact and expedia. Passed around 4 different people with no body taking responsibility. the hotel is run down, not clean but the beds were comfortable. bathrooms very much in need of a refurbishment. Pictures on must be from long time ago. some notes advertised refurbishments had taken place earlier this year and so perhaps other floors are in better condition. We had a room on the 2nd and 4th floor. the breakfast was a mixture of asian and european. they have a waffle station, freshly made and an "egg" station. this was nice. the hotel is well located; a block away from the see front. the cost charged if booked direct is about 30% less as if you book it via; till no reaction from on this incident.

Big, clean and comfy
I booked Hotel Sandakan on the recommendation of the driver I used out at Sepilok, and I'm grateful that I did. The hotel was great, in a good location close to countless eateries, and several convenience stores/supermarkets. Service was excellent. The room was large, clean, and very comfortable - I stayed in the Junior Suite. The room had both a shower and bath. Highly recommend if staying in Sandakan.

6/10 Good

We booked family room for 4 persons but that room type was not available. Even though the hotel has gave us extra bed but the room size definitely not as big as what we expect.

Inaccurate information.
Your Home-Page information is an exhaustive and inaccurate example. I ask for this hotel before reservation from their homepage at "Contact Us". I asked for this hotel which room grade available to use bath-Tub. But I received Answer from them only before day. If I have exact Information before reserve,I can get a room with bathtub as same price.
