View was marvellous facing the mosque, the city & the sea! Near to eateries area, groceries etc. Let’s support this hotel, make her glorious again!

    Breakfast ”

    Breakfast service is below par. Even though it is a fasting month, they should consider a non muslim who still want to have good and satisfactory breakfast. Instead, breakfast provided is very mediocre. Not up to hotel star's standard.

    Need Refurbishment”

    The room was clean but smelly (old furniture). The management should improve on the customer's experience such as spray the room with fragrance (freshener). The old furniture is not a problem if the management knows how to capitalize it.

    Pro Cheap, and location is good Cons The breakfast was free. But it is better that you eat in other place.. Breakfast was really x delicious and x hotel standard.. We just drank some cofee and juice and decided to head out for breakfast.. On the second day we x even bother to eat there. The furniture in the room seems old and they are still using old TV. X flat screen. There's no bidet in thw bathroom. I chose these hotel because I went here 4 years ago and i expected it to be the same as last 4 years.. But i was wrong.

    Don't expect luxury at this hotel, you pay for what you get. If one plans to explore Tawau city centre, this is the place since everything is within walking distance. Wouldn't complain about anything else since price is very cheap compared to other similar old hotel

    this is an old hotel but is still very clean and most of its facility are still in order. except for the aircond was not cold enough. centrally located to many food outlets. the F&B at that hotel is not that bad and very2 cheap too. we enjoy our stay as taxi is easily available and was fantastic service and comparably cheap. There many superb seafood restaurants ( not certified halal but they dont serve pork)... EXCELLENT!

    Classic with soul!”

    The moment u steps in this hotel, it likes bringing you back to the 80’s.... my room was in the executive floor, you need to use the small key to unlock the lift to be able the lift to bring you up to 5th floor. The executive lounge, nothing there... might as well u stay in ur room. The room itself quite spacious. I like the idea of wooden blind to replace the curtain. The air conditioner works well, the bathroom with bathtubs & toilet bowl works well... however for those who having allergic rhinitis might sneeze all d way bcoz of the smell of d old carpet! Otherwise i love the room, the decoration, the furniture definitely make u like ‘back to the future’! The staff are really helpful, i manage to extend my stay till 2pm without any extra charge. Location wise, its in the middle of the town. I didn’t have my bfast, so i cant really comment on the food!
