This nice hotel is, as the name indicates, located on 63 Jalan Gaya, in what may be called the Chinatown of Kota Kinabalu - locally known as KK. Entering the elevator one also gets the impression that the building is from 1963. A view of 1963 KK is covering the walls of the elevator and it’s interesting to see how much the city has changed during those years. Covering the walls of the rooms, the corridors, and the lobby are also vintage pictures of times long gone, of a town once known as Jesselton during the rule of the North Borneo Chartered Company. The staff at this hotel is very friendly and helpful. They were able to meet all our fussy requirements, like providing new, clean pillow cases, change an old mattress and help us to log in to the WiFi when my iPhone was uncooperative. The rooms are spacious, there are hardly any noise. The hotel doesn’t provide breakfast, but there is a cheap eatery next door where you can have Asian breakfast as well as toast and coffee. Well recommended.
