Stayed here two nights during the first leg of my recent business trip to Langkawi because of the plain convenience and accessibility.

For travellers into Langkawi, i recommend you to drive because cabs are not readily available and there are no other modes of public transport. In comparison, cab rental for the entire day costed RM200 (2 persons) but we only spent RM90 (average rental per day) + RM50 for petrol (full tank). You can opt to pick up the car at the airport or to send it to your choice of residence.

LOCATION
Location was main consideration when i booked this hotel because of the convenience to Kuah and Pantai Cenang area. Hotel is easily located 15 minutes from the airport, at the T junction to Cenang stretch of shops and eating places, which is approx. 10-15minutes if you walk.

Around the hotel you can also find convenience stores, and plenty of eating places.

ROOMS
Rooms are budget styled - do not expect closet, couches, hair dryers etc. No hot water making services but at each lift lobby there is a water tap for everyone's use. Room decor is modern, pink-red-purplish hues on the walls. Personally feel that rates are slighty overpriced so if do look around to get a good deal. Showers come with a rainshower - perfect for Langkawi's generally scorching weather.

Do not be surprised if you hear voices in the middle of the night. Walls of this hotel is really paper thin, and i woke up to baby cries and my next door neighbour blasting his music on his ipod every morning.

MEALS
Nothing to shout about - breakfast spread was small but sufficient. Basic breakfast finds like cereal, coffee & tea, egg counter, Asian breakfast items can be found.

The same cafe serves room service too but when i was there over the Puasa month, they claimed that room service didnt operate even though i called at 8pm. There is a small bar area behind the main eating area if you would like a quiet drink at night - but i would say, just hit the streets for good watering holes.

FACILIIES / OTHERS
The hotel also houses a convenience store, which strangely was closed by 6pm when i got back after i finished meetings with clients. There is a infinity-styled pool, and also a spa if you would like a decent massage.

VERDICT
6/10. Cannot decide if i will be back. Generally i feel for a trendy modern hotel like that, staff members should be happy and friendly but in Fave Cenang its otherwise.

i visit this hotel during July 2012, and i stay there 5 nights, over all the hotel is good, it is good for 2 stars hotel in Cenang, for those who want more serenity, prosperity and luxury avoid this place,
this place is very good for people who want to room all around langkawi and will spend most of their time outside, this hotel very good for people who look for simplicity its new, clean, modern, very simple hotel, breakfast basic delicious food, Very good in terms of money value, location is great, very close the cenang beach and road, where all people will meet there,
for its class it is more than good hotel.........

Room Tip: Rooms on the pool side are more quiet and have a nice view

The hotel is quite new, with basic facilities including LCD TV, bed, shower, etc. But no fridge or water boiler is provided in the room. Guests can get hot and cool water in the corridor. There is a swimming pool. Breakfast is average. The location is acceptable, about 6 mins' to the beach. There are several restaurants nearby. But if you want to go to prosperous street in Cenang, it takes 25 mins to walk there.

Fave hotel is a very new hotel and the location is quite good, about 15 minutes drive from Langkawi airport and walking distance to pantai Cenang.It is very convenient to get food.The staff is quite helpful. Hotel room is clean, bathroom amenities are not provided except for toothbrush. They provide few channels for TV but it's ok. Limited choices for breakfast but its good value for money.

My fiancé did quite a thorough research on all the hotels before we finally booked for Fave Hotel. I'm quite a fussy person when it comes to hotel cleanliness and I must say that Fave was quite above my expectation.
The room was spacious and had a good smell when we entered the room. Although the room lacked in a fridge, overall it was clean and has all the basic necessity we needed. For the price that we paid, we won't assume that we will be getting 5 star room service but all the staff were friendly and can communicate fluently in English.
The location of the hotel was very strategic, with just few minutes walk away from all the shops and cafe. The pool was not magnificently big but the size was good enough to cater to the guests with a nice lush green mountain view. The only not-so-good thing that I can think of this hotel was that the rooms were not too soundproof.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay. Hope they can maintain the cleanliness and service after few years.

Room Tip: No fridge so best to bring your own cooler to chill your beers
