"this charming little hotel on the sea in sandakan is just a jewel...yes the rooms are small, but efficent. but the service and great restaurant with killer food makes up for the room..heck you aren't in the room that much anyway. also they have books to borrow (my kindle ran out of books?!). we originally had plan to ferry over to zamboanga, philippines, then ferry back to sandakan. well...that didn't go so well. we left luggage in sandakan, because we were coming back. the long ferry ride (24hrs), extremely uncomfortable trip made me refuse to go back that way. there is no air service, unless you go to manila, fly to kk, then to sandakan an expensive alternitave. so it was up to the swiss inn people to get our left luggage to us. not an easy or pretty task, but they were up to it and when we left singapore on the 11th of march, after a month in se asia, we had our luggage. i can't say enough about the swiss inn and miss nur! in a few years we plan to go back to sandakan and see them again. not the biggest hotel in sandakan or fanciest, but definitely the best placed on the water for roaming around."

"We actually stayed in both Deluxe room and Borneo wing superior room, and somehow I prefer Borneo wing superior room which is cheaper, as it was newer and cleaner. It's worth the price I think. The garden was quite nice. It's definitely the best hotel in Sandakan city. The only negative was that a group of guys was eating and drinking just in front of our room and they always talked to us. We found a bit unsecured and smelly but the staffs were helpless."

"It's far from the airport because it's in the city by the shore but easy to get transport through the grab app. We were allowed to check in early because the room was ready. It has what you expect of a hotel room, towels, soap, shampoo, tea and coffee. Came to Sandakan to rest and glad I picked Sandakan Hotel. They had fox movies so we stayed in the room during the day because the weather was too hot. Breakfast was RM12 per adult which is cheap and it was good. They have a coffee machine and a chef to cook you eggs the way you like them. Overall it was a very nice place to stay and the mall as well as eateries are within walking distance. "

"they allow early check-in as we are travelling with a baby which is very considerate. The size of the room is small but most importantly its clean & the furniture is still pretty new. Location is just a few minutes drive to the main town as its is located in between the old town and the rest of the attractions. We rented a car for easy & leisure sight seeing in Sandakan. The food are great & cheap at coffee shop and "pasar" (market). Seafood are plenty with a very reasonable price. "

"This is one of my favourite hotels in Sandakan. Cozy, quiet place, great value for money. It was better when it had an in-house restaurant and room service, but it still holds up its worth now. Grab is easy to hail from the hotel and there are several good restaurants nearby. The beds are very comfortable and can surpass several SDK hotels with higher rates. Very easy parking. Large bathroom. Always clean. Staff are always friendly no matter when you check in or check out. I ended up extending most of my stays here because I did not want to leave the bed! No view to speak of, but if you just want a quiet, comfortable place to spend the night in in Sandakan with great value, this is it. Just bear in mind it is located a little out of the way. I hope their restaurant re-opens sometime soon!"

"GREAT rooftop terrace with sea view! Staff were very helpful and nice (esp. Audrey and Nini, real stars!), the location is right in the center of the harbor, close to restaurants, shops, markets etc. Security is very good - magnetic cards, lockers in dorms (small sized but adequate). I loved the place and extended my stay here and I recommend it to all backpackers staying overnight in Sandakan. "
