We couldn't find anywhere also to stay in Langkawi, as everywhere was full! So we ended up here! The room was extremely basic (not even a bin in the room, I had to find one on the hall way to being in!) There was furniture all over the hall ways, units and old mattreses, it was so loud at night... More

Despite the problem above, the price is cheap, one ppl for around RM 40 per night, the cleanliness was satisfied. Another plus point is it near the beach. But the wifi, water and toilet problem really need to be improved.

It is a budget hotel. Room is spacious, lots of shops and restaurant within walking distance. The best part is, once I open my room door and there is the beach. Wifi only at the lobby and parking is very limited. They also provide 3rd party travel and tour eg to Dayang Bunting or island hopping. Taxis can be easily... More

AB Motel is common hotel with clean and spacy rooms, but it is the location right in front of Cenang beach, what makes it special. Also some duty free shopping malls on Pantai Cenang are close by. WiFi is avaiable only in lobby.

The location is great if you're in Langkawi on a budget. I've stayed here thrice. Once at the beachfront room. Around 200RM for that which I would say is totally worth it. Two double beds, a working AC and fridge. Felt very safe even though it was just two girls staying alone. The beach in Langkawi is generally dirty but... More

AB Motel is a good place to stay and very conveniently located on the beach of Pantai Cenang. There are two sides of the hotel – one located on the beach itself and the other is across the road. We took a family room located on the beach, consisting of two queen beds on the ground floor. There are two... More
