The Embassy Hotel in Mersing is not too bad for a budget level hotel. They have a cafe/ bar on the lower level which we didn't try and are only a five minute walk away from the ferry terminal. We stayed there for one night before catching the ferry to Tioman island early the next morning. We booked the family... More

Was stuck in mersing waiting for the ferry to tioman malaysia. Good wifi, clean, cheap, and hard bed. People are nice. Its not far from ferry port. Hot shower. Overall not bad at all for last minute place to stay.

Me and my family spent one night in this hotel.It was a decent budget hotel that provides basic needs for travelers.For a short transit stay before an early ferry ride to Tioman Island,it was just great.Eateries,shops,pharmacies and the ferry terminal were only about 10 minutes walk from the hotel..But an upgrade for a suite unit was a great choice as...

Was everything we needed for a nights stopover. The rooms have a tv with HBO movies playing one after the other. Which helped with our boredom. Wifi was free (often cut out, make sure you stay on level 1 or 2). Working air con and comfortable bed. Overall the room was very spacious and worth it.

I got dropped off by the bus on the street in the middle of the night in the rain. They were right next to the bus stop, so I decided to get out of the rain. MR 55 not bad. Large room, Movie channels and hot water. In addition, walking distance to Jetty. The staff was friendly, no internet in... More

The hotel is near the bus station, on the other side of the big roundabout. We just walked in (no advance booking). We could also easily walk in about 10 minutes to the ferry early morning (suitcase with wheels). There is a grocery store across the street and a restaurant next to it. The hotel is old, including all the... More

The main issue for a single traveller is that they dont have single rroms so yoi end up paying double as in so many other places. Also booking through Agoda is more expensive, dont make the same mistake. So my impression was it was too expensive for what I got. Wifi didnt work and there was no will to try... More

Centrally located at Mersing downtown. As our public bus arrived midnight, it is easy to find and reached the hotel, only 5 minute walking distance from Mersing bus terminal. Super duper fast check in-out The reception desk already closed, however a friendly uncle outside the hotel door welcoming us with the fact that our room key is well prepared before... More

for over two years I am now traveling around the world by bicycle and I have seen many guesthouses, hostels and hotels. this hotel is in the middle of the heart of Mersing. friendly staff, clean rooms, enough space. TV channels are a little bit poor, but free wifi. many possibilities to get some food around.

We booked in advance with Agoda and that was a mistake. When we arrived it was difficult to communicate and the receptionist didn't really understand we'd prepaid.. So we found out that our £15/night room had a walk in value of MYR55 - just over £10 - so a third cheaper. The place has heaps of rooms and there are... More
