Unique "colonial" style charme.”

Very retro from a different era that makes this hotel very attractive and unique. Beautiful quality wood use in the indoor design that creates a cozy atmosphere. Spacious rooms with a desk and sofa, indoor panel shutters on the big room window. I love the style and every time i stay in Tawau, i stay in this hotel. The bed is very comfortable, It is very quiet and the staff is very helpful and professional. They organised a driver for us to get to Semporna. Highly recommended!!

Classic Hotel, Old but Gold”

U know a good hotel once u step in to the lobby. The Bellboy open the door and carry your luggage. This service usually only provided by the 4-5 stars hotel. I have a feeling the owner / whoever manage the hotel is a detail and classy person. It called Marco Polo, but it doesn’t feel tacky. It’s classic, and gold. U can feel the vibe by the time u enter the lobby. The decoration is carefully selected, painting at the lobby, even in your room, complimented the name of hotel. Room is very clean, the old furnitures, all function very well, no broken part / etc. They took care of it carefully. No dust, I'm surprised, because usually an old hotel like this it’s smell mushy, dusty on the deco and etc. But not Marco Polo Hotel. From the lobby, corridor, room…very clean! I salute the housekeeping and the management. I didn’t try the breakfast, because we walked to Tanjung Market early morning, which is only 600m from the hotel. If the owner / management can turn and revive this gem into classic hotel like Eastern Oriental in Penang or Raffles in Singapore, that would be very fortunate and wonderful.

Rustic & Classic”

One of the earliest star hotel in Tawau (if I'm not mistaken). I remembered staying here back in 2007. In 2022, it may look old/rustic to some, but I am still loving the room. The place is so strategic with ample parking space, restaurants that you can dine in around, the pasar, convenience store and more around the hotel vicinity. Good value for money.
