“new hotel”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

this is a new hotel in pantai cenang but without sea view. it is clean but with minimum facilities and there was not even a fridge in rooms, and i think it was not value for money. the swimming pool is great with a very nice view to the rain forests. foods are good with reasonable prices but you can find better dishes with same price in the restaurants outside the hotel. sleep quality is not good because you can here everything happening outside in your room. very small rooms and bathroom. we had a problem with the reception. they didn't accept dollars and we hadn't enough ringit to pay for check out. just about 20 ringit! and we had a flight at 11 o'clock and no money exchange was open before 11! it was really awful situation. finally we changed money with a malaysian guy and we payed!! breakfast variety is meaningless!
*there were some nice and friendly staffs

Fave hotel is a very nice three star hotel. It is close enough to the beach where you don't have to take a taxi or rent a scooter. It is also close enough to the main strip where one can easily stroll down to get very good dinner.

The hotel was very clean. The rooms themselves were also extremely clean. Our room was in great shape and was very modern. We had daily maid service and they did a fantastic job. We always had fresh towels, when we needed them, and extra toiletries.

The bar service was very good. The service was fast, friendly and funny. We enjoyed going down for happy hour every day and being greeted with a smile and friendly conversation. The drinks are also very reasonably priced.

The cons of the hotel: the front desk service was not always friendly and often seemed confused. I felt that two female employees, in particular, had no clue what to do next and offered very little in service or in answers. They would stare at us with blank faces and provide no answers. They could not provide simple answers to taxi and other services. They also often forgot to bring certain items to our room. It is too bad because some other people, who worked at the hotel, were amazingly friendly and courtesy. These two females, however, were not. This is why I didn't rank this hotel 5 out of 5.

I have one foot note. DO NOT eat at the place next door going towards the sea. I had the worst food poisoning in my life from that place. I ended having go in hospital. I simply do not recommend it. The place directly across the street, however, is amazing. You will see tons and tons of locals picking up deep fried snacks there! Go and try it!!

This hotel is cheap and in walking distance to Cenang beach. This place would be totally fine if the hotel wall are thick enough. I thought the wall is made from paper mache because is so thin you can here everything that happen in the room next door or people walking, talking, crying or open any door in the whole floor. It horrible and I end up having bad sleep. one last thing I request for additional pillow on the phone three times and after 1hr nothing ever arrive! Way to go for service.

Modern interior design.

However, superior room is rather small, not suitable for family with small kid who is sharing room.

The hotel was chosen based on the good comment. Unfortunately, when we checked in on 29 April 2012, only one staff at reception, in which he needs to handle for 3 guests. The kid queued impatiently.

When come to our turn, we requested for hill view room rather than facing main road. Our request was rejected as we were requested for that during room reservation. We end up with unpleasant argument and the request was not accommodated. We are disappointed with the attitude of the staff.

Perhaps we are domestic travelers rather than foreign travelers.

Great budget hotel, but paper thin walls only good if you can sleep through noise. We stayed 5 nights and of those nights we had one night of decent sleep the other nights we had noisy neighbours in adjoining rooms who talk ( very loudly) till all hours of the morning, no consideration for other guests.
Swimming pool is wonderful, a welcome relief on a hot day. Staff are lovely
Be aware the hotel offers a free shuttle into the Cenang centre, but fail to tell you it's not running if they only have 2 people waiting to use it.
Breakfast is good variety.

Hi ,

A few point to note about this hotel:

1) Location of the hotel- Pantai Tengah beside Asenia Hotel.
2) Modern concept hotel
3) Good and responsive staffs- very helpful indeed, front desk and the people around the breakfast counters.
4) Has a swimming pool with a lush backdrop of greenery nature, awesome view.
5) Room comes with breakfast, ok not bad, just basic, food doesn't taste good.
6) The entire hotel has Free Wi-Fi, though the strength of the signal varies, in rooms normally are not that strong comparatively to Lobby area.
7) I feel the shower pressure is low in the room.
8) Has a LCD in room with 10 channels local and International channels.
9) A point to take note of is, do not leave any sweet items open in the room, noticed a lot of Black Ant enjoying the sweet, I mean literately a lot. Though the house keeping was kind enough to spray some insect pray to get rid of them.
10) The room doesn't come with a fridge, so it will be a problem for anyone to stock up their alcohol (for drinkers). Perhaps the management of the hotel could look into it.
11) Has bicycle rental, Rm5 an hour, all of the bicycle has their paddle shoes broken, not in good state the overall condition of the mountain bike, poor brakes, un-align handle.
12) About 30minutes drive to Kuah Town.

Overall a good stay, good bed, good pillow and I would recommend to anyone.

Thanks

Room Tip: Choose a room that faces the swimming pool.
