"I stayed in this hotel on business, so I only used the room to sleep and to do some paperwork. I liked the patient and helpful staff. Dealt with counter staff (who processed my check in with the Agoda voucher) and maintenance (silly me didn't know how to switch the TV on!) and breakfast people. Breakfast offered were more than enough for me. Noodles, rice, bread, porridge + condiments, fluffy buns, croissants, chicken, eggs, juices, tea, coffee.. Location was perfect for me, as there was a taxi stand next to the hotel, as well as a supermarket in the next block. To potential customers, many hotels in Tawau are part of shop blocks and this hotel is the same. In the same block were a few eating places and I highly recommend 'Restoran Ingat' for its tasty dishes. Not kosher though ('halal'). The 'interesting' bit was the bathroom. It was an open plan one (!) and only a curtain separated the toilet from the room. The shower cubicle had frosted glass. If my roommate were my husband, it would pose no problem. But if my roommate were my colleague... hmm, there just may be some issues. Especially if I were to suffer a bad stomach upset and spend a productive time on the throne.. hahaha. Anyway I was alone in the room so productive times weren't an issue. My other business colleague had a bathroom with a door, by the way. So maybe I got the honeymoon room "

"It was really good. My family and I went over for around 1 week to settle some mind boggling matters and the stay here was really relaxing easing our stress and pressure. The view was wonderful especially that we had a high-floor room with windows all over giving us a panoramic view of the deep ocean and majestic mountains. The service was impeccable! It was Chinese New Year and Tawau was much a ghost town and taxi was no where to be found at night. We were stuck at the hospital in the middle of the night thinking that we r going walking back to the hotel. But I thought to try my luck and called the hotel. Although I could not really understand them due to the heavy accent, but they came by the hospital within 10 minutes an brought us back safe and sound in a huge MPV. i felt so happy with them and although so late at night, they still served with a smile. The breakfast and dinner were superb too. loads of variety of very good quality. And the view from the restaurant was so good too. On the 3rd day of our stay, I was feeling a little bored and went for a little work after some business and found a shopping mall linked to the hotel. Even bought a blouse there. The hotel made an otherwise difficult time very much pleasant and relaxing. Thanks to the staff and their great service. Wld definitely go back to this hotel. The best in Tawau!"

"This hotel is quite old without proper maintenance... Room size is quite big, FOC car park is available... However, the carpet in the room is dirty n smelly, hot shower in the bathroom has low water pressure... The price u book on agoda is cheaper than u book on the spot... If u r willing to pay more, find another better hotel in tawau "

"I stayed here for 1 night on a business trip. I didnt expect the hotel to be good, but it was!.. Not only is it affordable, it is also cheap. Its close to the supermarket where i got my night snacks, there is adjacent restaurant (good food). And i got my friend and collegues souvenir (mostly food) from the famous nearby local market. Walking distance was abt 3 mins give or take. The hotel staff was friendly enough and helpful. The room was surprisingly big and clean. What i love the most is the bed. It has a 4 STAR quality bed. Really worth my money, esp when on a tight budget. I would def recommend this hotel to all my friends with a thin budget. AWESOME!!!!"

"This hotel is perfect...I’ve stayed in many places and in KK too and this is without a doubt the most stylish of them all. It’s brand new and exceptionally clean...love all the stylish details even the cute chair hook at the back of the bathroom door! Plus a super strong hairdryer in the bathroom. Staff are lovely and friendly and it’s situated in a very modern area with tons of places to eat and bubble tea shops if you like that! Would HIGHLY recommend Svok :) I will be back next time in Tawau "
