“Simple, but cool”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

Stayed here after 5 days in Kuar - Much needed - it has a pool! The hotel is quite fashionable really, very modern, but I understand that this place is new, so you would expect that.

Well, the hotel rooms are small, but perfectly formed. Clean bathrooms with great showers (with hot water!), beds are comfortable. The only strange thing about the room I had was the window overlooking the bar - curtains need to be shut post shower!

The pool was very welcome, providing a tiny oasis away from the sand of the beach. There is a decent restaurant serving local and international dishes, good value for a hotel too. Happy hour means half price drinks, which is a nice touch.

Whilst I was there we experienced monsoon rains, which meant that it was more attractive to stay in that venture out into the pouring rain and thankfully the hotel has thought of this providing a choice of channels on the TVs - and playing movies in the bar.

there is a Spa - but to be honest it's much mcuh cheaper to walk into town - about 5 minutes away for a massage etc.

In the town, there is a new shopping centre - recommend the flip-flop (thong) shop for cheap, good quality footwear,

All in all this was a great little hotel, though at the time of year was a little over-priced in comparison to other options - but it does have a pool...

Room Tip: Have a look at the room before you stay - some of them have views into the bar and the street, there...

This is a newly opened hotel at Pantai Cenang located beside Aseania Hotel.
The Fave has a strategic location, nice swimming pool, friendly staff and most importantly very comfortable rooms. The rooms are not too big, but instead it was just right. The morning breakfast during the fasting month was not compromised. They served good breakfast. The hotel is located in a very quiet place although it is not far away from the famous Pantai Cenang.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone really. Nice swimming pool, good location, nice staff, room was perfectly fine.
The only few annoying thing were the bathroom floor was particularly clean and seeing as the hotel is relatively new they haven't really cleaned it properly. Sound proofing is a bit of the problem with the rain hitting on the roof if your staying on the top floor and children in the room next to us crying was loud due to the adjoining room. So have a few beers before bed and you will be fine.
Other than that great budget hotel

It was a big group of my family and extended family holiday at Langkawi. After reading much mixed reaction from the reviews we have decided to book our stay at Fave Hotel. Didn't know if we had made the right choice.

First local remarks by the car rental guy was "Oh, Fave Hotel, cantik (beautiful/nice)".

This hotel is pretty new in town, at the end of Cenang Beach Road, 10 minutes walk to the beach (Pantai Tengah) where you can get water sports activity and nice sunset scene. A lot of parking for cars and vans.

Some areas to pick on will be the rooms. The choice of rooms are limited. Mostly double bed or two single bed, and they have no extra bed to be added. Some of the rooms have door to next room, making it convenient if you stay next to each other. However, also due to the door, I got a lot of noise coming from the neighbor whom I did not know. Sound proofing is terrible in this sense. There's a hot and cold water dispenser outside the room, hence there's no kettle in the room to boil water. If you are planning to buy chocolate and liquor, be mindful that there's no refrigerator in the room. Other than that, the room is comfortable and clean, comes with air conditioner, tv, free wifi, and a safe.

Overall facilities is good. Swimming pool and chairs by the pool makes it a relaxing place for a drink and chit chat. There's a bar with friendly staff, some board games, pool and fusball table is available.

We have read some remarks that says the service from the staff is bad, but we did not encounter any of those. Hence we are satisfied with the stay and I would recommend this hotel to people who are willing to pay a bit more for a new hotel.

Frankly speaking, I was worried about the service of this hotel after reading many negative reviews about it. However, I did not face any problems during my stay here. The front desk was ever so polite and helpful. The deluxe room was spacious and my room faced the swimming pool and the jungle. The swimming pool was children friendly and my child had an enjoyable time swimming at the pool. The hot and cold water dispenser was strategically located at each floor...but most of the time, the cold water is not cold enough. There is a good spread for breakfast. Wifi access was fast. All in all, it was a pleasant stay!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the swimming pool do not face the setting sun, therefore..it is much cooler compared to...

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.

Room Tip: Away from elevators for less noise.
