I stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Emas. I used our company corporate rate which is just cost RM 98.00 per night. Room is a bit old but bathroom is big. Wifi is not strong in the room. However breakfast provided is the best in town, lots of foods is made from their own cocoa.

Stayed for 2 nights in the executive room. Furnitures are obviously old and some of it may need to be changed. Breakfast choices are plenty with combo of local and western. Fruits are fresh. The specialty here is their cocoa drink. Made from well known sabah beans. Plenty of products made from cocoa is readily available at the reception. The... More

Room is very old and seriously need refurbish.. Small tv,dirty linen and uncomfortable.. The only one that I like the most is their breakfast was really nice.. Others still need improvement. The staff is well trained, fast check in and check out and they served with smile.. Good airport transfer service..

It's a dated hotel but they were able to arrange the best cocoa tour to their plantation, factory and museum. Very nice and informative. The meals they served were good enough. I love the tour very much and captured many photos. If you prefer a spacious room, do pay a bit more for the rooms at the top floor. This... More

The reason we booked this hotel was to do the Cocoa Tour (which is owned by the same parent company as the hotel). The... More

I stayed in deluxe room for a night. The hotel building is a bit old, the lobby, reception and receptionist is nice, the room a bit small, with furniture worn out but you're provided with all room necessities and bathroom also had bathtub. The cleanliness is average, but looks a bit gloomy due to 'old-age'. View from room is nice... More

The hotel looks ok, though it is a bit old, but the management did try to keep the standard on par. The room, bathroom and sheets are clean. But the fridge is quite filthy with stains and smell. TV channel selection is very limited, only comes with local programs and sports channel. Hotel surrounding has got nothing much to offer,... More
