This is a very good hotel, I read as many reviews as I could before staying at Le Meridien, and it rated very highly among first time and frequent travlellers to KK. Had a great spacious room on the 9th floor, it was just a pity I was travelling by myself!

Rated 3 out of 5 by nabs Nice hotel but service needs impovement
Some nights room was not cleaned; and we once organised the night before an early breakfast, where we spent significant time with the staff to explain exactly what we wanted. Next morning, breakfast was late and the order was wrong.
Also SPG members were not treated as well as I have experienced in other hotels

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tackey86 All is good, except WIFI
For a 5-Star hotel, to ask guests to pay for WIFI at such modern era, is a little cheap or low. What's worst? The WIFI speed is super duper slow, that even the SPG website can't be load, needless to say my corporate emails or downloading work related files.
Other than that, personally I would still recommend the hotel to my friends, as I love the breakfast, it was kept nice and warm, very remarkable. I love the swimming pool and gym, the gym was 24 hours. The room was great and I was given a free upgrade, love it. But the house keeping was quite inconsistent, certain times they gave me 2 bottle waters, sometimes 3. The service staff were superb too, very helpful and informative. But even though I did purposely highlight and reminded the staff upon checking in, that my bookings includes 2 breakfast which is on my first morning and third, but when I went to have my breakfast, they still come and tell me saying that I do not have a breakfast booked and inform that my breakfast bill would be charged to my room, payable upon checking out. Quite offended there. And I asked for an iced coffee from a waiter but it didn't came, I had to asked another waitress to deliver it, 10 minutes later.

If you are in the hotel facilities you are not even thought that you are surrounded with a local markets, local food stalls, night market , local people with a dialects that you not even understand and four lanes roads being reduced to tiny two lanes road

Rated 3 out of 5 by SeanWilliam Good F&B. But had bad experience on sleep quality.
Stayed 2 nights. F&B was good, service was good as expected. The complimentary coffee in the lounge was a nice touch.
However, sleep quality was disappointing and below expectation. The mattress was a little bouncy. It will be nice if the mattress is more plush.
In addition, did not sleep well for 2 nights due to noisy aircond (audible clicking noises intermittently). Perhaps it is time to change or upgrade the air conditioning.
Overall room is clean but the bathtub has some permanent stains.

We arrived as a group of golfers playing for our organization in a tournament. The room arrangement and the food is excellent, although we have no time to try all the facilities, I am sure they are excellent too.
The hotel understands our requirement to be early at the golf courses, which are about 1 hour away , so our breakfast were packed in nice hotel logo bags with our room numbers for us to pick at the font desk.
Our golf bags are collected upon our return, stored and retrieved each morning, ready for transport.
I would say from my previous experience in hotels around the country, this is the best hotel I have stayed on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tequila2515 Thoughtful and helpful staff
I had my wedding held in Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu on 13 Sep 2014. The wedding planner and banquet manager from the hotel are very helpful and attentive. The wedding went very well and all the guests were pleased. There was 1 night of complimentary staying in bridal suite and the next complimentary night staying in the deluxe room. We were being offered for a free upgrade to bridal suite for the second night when we requested late check-out for the bridal suite before we checked in the deluxe room. Very thoughtful and sweet!
Even the staff in car park booth was so helpful that he took the initiative to call hotel technician to help us when we couldn't get our car started after leaving the headlight on for the whole night.
