The location really food and it centre of town !
I book family room and only get two voucher for breakfast on the day of registration . After explaninh they keep saying that the price i pay to them is worthy for two voucher only even i explaning to them that before i book i clearly see stated there applied for 3vouchers! And the next morning luckly i got friendly staff who told me that actually i applied for 3free breakfast instead of 2. Thank you and pls remained check of any regulation since its family room which is fit for 4person .
The staff here is very well-trained and professional. Their English is more than adequate and they always stand ready to assist you with whatever you need. The showers/hot water are terrific. It is also convenient to have in-house eating opportunities, although there are plenty within easy walking distance of the hotel.
The beds were a bit short (I am 5'11 and hung over the end) and the air-conditioning is great but a bit all-or-nothing, which means one has to decide if one wants to sleep with a breeze overhead (even with the fan off). But I didn't let that detract from enjoying the hotel. These are minor things. As humid as it is here, I am not inclined to complain about "too much" AC.
we booked 4 rooms. 2 of the rooms the aircon didnt work. another room electricity cutout at 2 am in thr morning. staff were not bothered. no apology at all
the parking space
Large, comfortable room on a quiet street. Good location. Good coffee. Okay breakfast with Malay buffet plus eggs and waffles. High floors have sea view, the rest face pleasant trees (not many in downtown area).
Very awkward light switches on a panel that's hard to use in the dark. Older bathroom.
With a stay at Hotel Sandakan, you'll be centrally located in Sandakan, just a 3-minute walk from Sandakan Harbour Mall and 8 minutes by foot from Bukit Buli Sim Sim. Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Limited parking is available onsite.
