I stayed at Palace hotel for 9 nights, the 3x daily shuttle bus drop off and pick up at convenient locations. Location to the city is not too far, 15 minutes walk depending on where you want to go. My favourite thing about hotel was good choice of buffet breakfast, worth choosing this because there aren't many other choices in the area. Great staff, a man at the pool helped me find liquor shop. It was also great to see hotel environmental policy was highly regarded, and the hotel participates in many community events. The hotel grounds are quite spacious, with a nice garden but many mosquito however the hotel provided free insect repellent.

A working colleague of InsightSuite has stayed here several times but for InsightSuite it was first time. It is a clean & green hotel & the shape is more like a castle / fort rather than a palace. It is on a small hill away from the main road so having a car is a must. Hotel looks popular as function venue because while we were there a wedding & some other even was taking place & the carpark was full. Next to the pool there is a spice garden. From the carpark there is a short flight of stairs which can take you to Giant supermarket across the street.

I came to this hotel in 2005 which was a lovely hotel at the time. However, since then 2005, the hotel rooms have vastly improved and the hotel in general have improved too boosting a gym and two pools inside and outside. I am staying at the hotel for 28 days (12th Sept - 11th October 2016) So I am writing my review with just less than 2 weeks to go. The staff are friendly, professional and want to make your stay as easy as they can. The rooms are of good size, bathroom is clean, and the facilities are ok for your everyday needs. However there are no iron/ironing board in the room but available on request. Breakfast in the morning have a good choice overall and there is an egg chef which is really good as you know your eggs are freshly prepared, not all hotels provide this. The laundry service is quick and reasonably priced too. If you like to eat at the hotel in the evening they provide a buffet style dishes or you eat from their menu, which is slightly more than outside, but your paying for the convenience of the location, the food is of good quality and service is good too. We had a window view, but I feel all rooms at this hotel offers a window view, the hotel location is very near central Kota Kinabula, and provides free parking.

This hotel operates a Green policy on food, so when ordering food now, you are expected to eat all your food, or they will charge you for wastage. This is the only negative I can think of, as I understand the policy, it is also unfair to be expected to eat all your food if you had enough.

I would recommend this hotel to families, couples, and business people too. They also do weddings here. Enjoying my stay here, and I am sure the next 2 weeks will not change my opinion of this hotel

You deserve a round of applause

I'd like to congratulate the manager of The Palace Hotel Kota Kinabalu for inspiring other people to recycle and indirectly save our mother earth, while other hotels just merely put the recycling campaign in theories/words. This hotel has taken a step ahead to show the practicality of it.

Again, good job and keep up the virtuous stance!
