Kudat’s best flashpacker option
Hotel Greenland raises its shoulders above the sea of mediocre choices in Kudat and is the best value flashpacker in town.
Contra to its olive and moss-green camouflage colours, the hotel is conspicuous and easy to find, in the shop lot above AM Bank on the eastern side of town.
Good-sized and bright rooms are homey and spotlessly clean. The decor is sedate and classic: plush carpets and dusty toned walls convey a warm and cosy ambience. Quality mattresses and bedding will have you well rested and bedside furniture and lighting are all just right. Air-con, WiFi and flatscreen TVs are standard and pricier rooms add a fridge. Opt for share bathroom, ensuite or a suite, and at Hotel Greenland a suite really means it (unlike every other “suite” in Sabah) — the separate tiled sitting room is pleasant and opens to a small balcony. Tiled hot-water bathrooms gleam, and offer bench space for your bits and bobs.
Hotel Greenland doesn’t include breakfast, but the surround shop-lots are rife with choice. This spot is rightly popular, so you will need to book in advance, particularly on weekends.
