Aged hotel with A LOT to improve
reached late evening to check in, rooms were already available. upon reaching the room, noticed the room was very musky. no decent wardrobe and the air cond was very noisy at times. the fridge cant be switched on as it was moved from its original location thus the plug was too far away. the wifi was also out of service. second day, had to ask the front desk to ask the staff to move the fridge, fix the internet and check on the water supply as there was water disruption on the second day! breakfast was very limited and the restaurant didnt refill the unavailable dishes. noticed they were signages with different directions for the Kiblat in the room and both directions were wrong. the bedding was not very comfortable and didnt manage to sleep properly at night. very poor soundproof and could hear some teens laughing and smoking along the corridor. the front desk counter staff were not very friendly, not very courteous and they hardly smile. the only staff worth the praise was Awal who works at the restaurant: very courteous and friendly.

Good for Business Trip
Room was quite okay, cofy and enlighting. But Breakfast has limited choices and no convenience stores around the hotel. The room is big and spacious. Iron board needs to be changed as the cover is torned. A lot of information has being provided in the room for review purposes. TV Programme are limited to few channels only, eventhough ASTRO guide has been provided, but didn't serve any purpose. Controling water temperature was a bit hard. Requested airport transfer but unable due to festive season.

Tawau hotel
Hotel is decent for this town as there is not too many high end places to stay if the resorts in Sipadan are full. Emas hotel has a transport service to Tawau Hillls Park Where the rainforest is still pristine with lots of native wildlife. Hotel is pretty well managed as it is owned by a local cocoa company.

Hotel Emas is definately an older hotel, however our room was spotless and comfy. The staff were the most helpful we had encountered on our trip and although it is about a10min walk from most other hotels, we felt safe walking the streets and there were a fair few eating locations near-by.
