Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Free shuttle to airport
Newish hotel with restaurant but not much nearby apart from the beach. The restaurant offered little choice for dinner but breakfast was eggs, baked beans and toast. The shower was good but there could have been more storage space in the bathroom. There was a balcony but it was of little use. The mattress on the bed squeaked every time someone moved. The good thing was the free shuttle to the airport in the morning which was the main reason I booked the hotel.

Review of Casaurina Hotel, Kota Kinabalu
Stayed 2 nights on different dates as part of my holiday. Found this hotel to be clean, comfortable for a 3Star. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. It has a small balcony too. The staff are friendly. Location wise, itโ€™s close to the airport and also a beach which is less than 5 mins walking distance from the hotel. They even have complimentary shuttle service to the airport. Overall, I liked staying here and will degenerate chhose this lace on my next visit
