Mt. Kinabalu is one of the Sabah premier tourist destinations, and during local school holidays and public holidays, many of the accommodations are always packed to its limit.

Consider as a mid-range accommodation, Kinabalu Rose Cabin was established more than a decade ago. It has a total of 27 rooms which are divided into three types: Hibiscus, Clivia, and Rafflesia. These rooms are not five-star but they are clean and comfortable. The Rafflesia Room can sleep 16 persons. It is also well poised for climbers who are planning for an assault at the summit, since it is located less than 2km from the Kinabalu Park registration office. One must registered with the Sabah Park authority before permits are issued for the climbing of Mt. Kinabalu.
