Stayed at this hotel for a night only because we were attending hubby brother wedding ceremony and reception at Tanjung Karang. I booked this room via booking.com and opted for payment with credit card (during check in), so I am disappointed because they said they don't accept credit card since I only bring along cash enough for my family foods/entertainments...

Good location near Melawati hill, which an attraction worth visit during morning or evening. Hotel nearby easy to get local food as well. Firefly tour can be found nearby as well. Hotel staff are friendly and fast check-in and check-out. Value for money.

Stay for a night. Location is a quiet place. Convenience to drive to nearby seafood stall.With only Rm68 per night, we have all the basic things in the room(flat tv, hot shawer, aircon...). Quite happy to stay here. MAY come again.

You may still have to ask to check... More

We stayed at Melawati Ria after a night of watching fireflies at Kampung Kuantan. The location is excellent, not too far from the firefly viewing point, and within walking distance to Bukit Malawati. Finding the hotel is easy. There is a Maybank conveniently situated next to the the hotel too. We arrived quite late, around 11pm but the surrounding area,... More

We splashed out on the previous three hotels on our road trip and for the price this was a steal. Compared with our first place in the Cameron Highlands (see tripadvisor for my review of Balas) this was great. The room was very basic but very clean and spacious. The beds are newer and very comfortable and big. The "queen"... More

We stayed one night in this place and they gave us room 101. When we got to the room, we found ants crawling all over the bed. This prompted a closer inspection of the mattress to confirm our suspicions; the bed was infested with bed bugs (pictures attached) We refused to stay in that room and the manager gave us... More

Just so you know, I am not very fussy when it comes to hotels – i usually think most negative reviews on hotel sites are over the top rants over minute details. That said, Melawati Ria Hotel is most probably the WORST hotel I've ever been to. INCREDIBLY NOISY, dirty, uncomfortable bed (broken, actually), stained towels, people shouting in the... More
