Hidden gem in town.”

Whenever I am in Sandakan, I like to stay here because it is so near to the shops in maintown yet it is not noisy as it is relatively secluded but safe (especially when it is just next to the police station). The facilities are also well maintained and the food’s tasty. The internet is fast but there was one time when the internet signal was unstable in the room for my Zoom work session but the employees helped to resolve the situation quickly, which I am grateful for.
