Stay in Kota Kinabalu for one night before heading to Kundasang.
Using Traveloka.com, I found this hotel and use the promo voucher of the month. Paid RM94.00 for Gallery Twin Room. However we were upgraded to suite as the room I’ve booked were not available during check in.
The hotel is located within 1Borneo Shopping Mall property. Located a bit far from city centre, but there are taxi and public bus available. As we’re only staying for a night and have no plan to do anything while in KK, this hotel is just the perfect choice. Anyway, if you are driving, proceed to park at the front of the hotel as they provided parking space for guest but it is limited, so just try your luck.
Although some basic amenities were not provided like toothbrush, toothpaste, there are 24 hours shop next to the hotel where you can buy any basic items you need. Plus, 1Borneo Shopping Mall has everything for entertainment like cinemas, bowling, 3D art museum and more.
