Monaco Hotel: Monaco Hotel

Monaco Hotel is just a hotel with reasonable rates... The rooms are air conditioned with all the basic necessities such as CTV and IDD telephone... Hotel rates are around RM100 per night thereabout...

There are a number of hotels in the area where Monaco Hotel is located... Next to it is Heritage Hotel and then First Hotel in the same building block... Just across and diagonally opposite Monaco Hotel are King Park Hotel and the newly opened Kingston Executive Hotel... Around the corner is MB Hotel... All these hotels are of similar class and goes for about RM100 for a standard room...

There is no coffee house but part of the external hotel building is rented out and operated as a muslim mamak food outlet selling muslim food... There are amply restaurants and coffee shops for whatever food that you want...

The hotel has no parking facilities if you drive... On the street parking is also hard to find except after office hours...

The htoel has 3 category of rooms with the current May 2009 rates as Superior (RM98), Deluxe (RM138) and Premier (RM168), all pricing is nett... The room comes with the necessary basic facilities such as air-conditioning, CTV, telephone etc...

The only setback is that the hotel does not have its own car park although a few cars can be parked in front of the main entrance... There is a coffee house for breakfast and the usual local and western food...

Marco Polo Hotel: Simple yet Friendly Staffs

I was staying in this hotel for a night in October 2007. What impressed me the most was the friendliness of the reception staffs. The room was simple yet nice. It is satisfactory for a short stay. The breakfast was simple.

Marco Polo Hotel: Tawau's best seafood buffet

My wife and I stayed in reputedly Tawau's best hotel (2 to 3 star) for 2 nights. Basic needs are taken cared but what delighted and surprised us greatly was the quality of food it provides.

The breakfast buffet spread consisted of the ubiquitous nasi lemak (coconut rice) and other simple far but that's where the similarity ends where Malaysian hotel breakfasts are concerned. Marco Polo's chef stands out for the his meticulous effort to cook the rice just right such that it's neither soggy or sticky. Each grain is immersed in fragrant coconut milk and the side dishes of chicken curry and anchovies didn't disappoint either.

This is another further proof that cooking the simplest food is often the most difficult.

The Chinese restaurant Kublai Khan (who met Marco Polo when he came to China) offers seafood buffet on Wednesdays and Saturdays at just RM 28.

Never have I tasted flower crabs as sweet and seldom so with prawns that fresh. Flower crabs are often a poor cousin compared to Sri Lankan crabs but those at this restaurant ranks as the best I've ever tried. Where seafood is concerned, freshness is the mother of EVERYTHING. You don't have to love sushi to know that.
