This hotel is located right at the center of one of the better hang-out areas of Tawau.. This budget hotel is superb in its own way, given its affordability. Although it’s a budget hotel, yet its design and cozi-ness is on par with “boutique hotel” standards. - Very clean toilets, perfect water pressure ; fair toilet amenities provided. - Clean bed sheets, cozy room lighting, sufficient room space for big bags. - Free wifi with fair internet speed. - Staff were friendly and helpful. - Surrounding the hotel has very complete amenities : food, cafes, banks, convenient stores, pharmacy,...etc. Very convenient location, lots of variety a good food! - There is a huge yummy-licious seafood restaurant (Kam Ling) located within walking distance. Will definitely come back here again shld i visit Tawau again!

My first time to Tawau & this hotel was recommended by a friend. Staffs were really friendly & were better than some 4/5 star hotel. Rooms were spacious & clean. Wifi was very fast! There are many cafes, convenience store & pharmacy around the hotel. My only complain is that there were only 4 channels on the TV. also the hot water was not as hot but overall it was a very pleasant stay.

As the flight schedule, we need to stay in Tawau over night before we head forward and come back to / from Sipidan. We have an experienced to stay in Tawau few years ago but it is not any good memory for the old town area. We found that "Rooms" hotel is the best choice for us. They are in the new area and everything you need just within by walk. There have some good restaurants just in front of the hotel. And the 7-11 just around 50 meters away. Beside the hotel, there have a big "watsons" store, it is really convenience to but the daily necessities. We love our stay and the rooms are so clean and quiet, everything is perfect for us. Thank you to all of the staff in Rooms hotel, they are so friendly. Especially Ms Daisy, Thank you very much for your arrangement for everthing we need, we will 100% come back and stay in "Rooms" hotel again. Thanks & best regards Joe & Moon

We only stayed for two nights but were very impressed with this hotel. Pros: Staff/ manager were incredibly helpful and friendly; they booked numerous taxis for us to go and explore the area. Lobby smells amazing. Beds are comfy. WiFi is fast. Air con is quiet. Rooms are cleaned daily. Surrounding area has a number of quality restaurants. Price is reasonable. Cons: Not really the fault of the hotel but outside noise pollution from the alleyway could be heard throughout my first night. Earplugs helped though.
