the standard of lintas platinum hotel

It’s my first time visiting Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, but it’s my second time in Malaysia since I went to Kuala Lumpur a few years ago. Kota Kinabalu, also known as KK, is the capital of Sabah, a state in Malaysia. Located on the northwest coast of the island of Borneo, Kota Kinabalu, or KK, is a vibrant city that offers a blend of cultural heritage, natural beauty, and modern amenities. 

I was actually supposed to visit Kota Kinabalu in 2019 with my friends, but due to COVID restrictions, it was postponed for a while. Fast forward to 2023, and it finally came true! I finally got a chance to visit Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. But this time, I am traveling solo since none of my friends are available. This was definitely another adventure for me as a solo traveler! 

I stayed in KK City for 8 days and 7 nights (I was supposed to visit Brunei in between those dates) and was able to explore the city and discover how peaceful the place is, even at night! I stayed in hostels for a few days and decided to stay in a nice hotel on my last day in Kota Kinabalu. To be honest, this has been my mantra or part of my itinerary; to stay in a very comfortable hotel at least once whenever I’m traveling alone. There are actually a lot of options to choose from, and fortunately, I have found this super nice hotel in Kota Kinabalu named Lintas Platinum Hotel. I love how the hotel is very strategic but very affordable, even for a solo traveler like me. 

If you’re looking for a nice place to stay in Kota Kinabalu, here are the top reasons why you should stay at Lintas Platinum Hotel.

One thing you will love about the Lintas Platinum Hotel is that it has a very strategic location. The hotel is just 8 minutes away from Kota Kinabalu International Airport, 10 minutes away from the beach, and 14 minutes away from the city. Not to mention that the hotel is near shopping malls, restaurants, and convenience stores. This is definitely the perfect place to stay while in KK City. 

Personally, I stayed at the Lintas Platinum Hotel on my last night in KK, which was very ideal on my end since it is nearby the airport! I was able to maximize my time during my last day, and I didn’t really have to worry about getting rushed to the airport. 

They offer comfortable rooms. 

Lintas Platinum Hotel offers a variety of rooms, such as Standard Rooms, Deluxe Twin, Deluxe King, Junior Deluxe, Executive, Family Suite Rooms, and Platinum Suites. I was able to stay in one of their standard rooms, and I found it super cozy!

Although it’s a standard room, the room looks huge enough for couples. The bed is big, and they offer such an amazing outdoor view. In addition, they’ve also got a nice bathroom with a dresser (which I definitely loved)! In addition, the hotel also a free breakfast buffet during your stay.

The hotel has a very welcoming staff. 

Upon checking in at the hotel, I was surprised by the hospitality that I received from the staff. They seemed to be very welcoming to their guests. In addition to that, they even helped and guided me on how I’d be able to get to the Mari-Mari Cultural Village! 

They provide excellent services.
