My colleague and I feel disgust of those mold. Pillow is low quality and bed frame has sound. You better wash the cup before use. If you fail to use internet , call...

Me and my friend traveling through Tawau on our way to Semporna and Sipadan. Executive room was great, well cleaned, good shower and comfortable bed. The location was perfect. One bar is just around the corner among other places. The breakfast was very good. I recommend this place and will stay one more night later this week.

This hotel was good for the price. It was not exceptional in any way, but it was a place to stay. I was disappointed to see that after I had checked out they had added 35 dollars to my bill that showed up on my credit card that I had not authorized. I would not stay in this accodomodation again...

Last year I stayed in another hotel in the neighbourhood but I didn't like it as it was sort of worn out, so this time I tried out MB Hotel. Room is spacious. Bed is comfortable. Shower is strong and hairdryer of high voltage. Free WiFi in the room is pretty fast. There are some Malay restaurants nearby. Also there...

The room was ok, there is a water dispenser outside the room. However there's a foul stench from the sink and toilet. I think it comes from the piping system. This needs to be rectify immediately. Considering the price of this hotel is offering, i would say that this hotel is just average.

I have come to that point in my traveling career that my standards have adjusted appropriately for the area and situation. Ex: If I find an ant walking across my dinner plate I just brush it off and keep eating. It is with this attitude that I endorse Mb Hotel for a typical mid-range hotel stay. Not the best, not...

Located at the heart of Tawau town. Walking distance to the market if you plan to buy Amplang and Cashew Nuts. It has a very cozy with dim light restaurant. The room was a disappointment but not a surprised as I have read the reviews from others on the same issue. The minute we checked in the room at almost...

Checked into this hotel for two nights stay for a free and easy break-away in Tawau. Taxi fare from airport is RM 45. It took us 35 minutes to reach the hotel which is situated at the city centre at Fajar district. There are many eateries around the hotel. The Tanjung wet market is 10-15 minute walk from the hotel....
