There's 2 kind of rooms, which Rm128 is for the garden view and Rm188 for the sea view. For me, i strongly suggest to take sea view room because the view from your room is extremely pretty!You can enjoy the sea view on your bed. The tube is quite small, just a bed ,fan and air-conditional inside but it is... More

This is a hidden gem at the most northern point of Pantai Cenang before you get to the airport (you can hear planes landing and taking off from the hotel). The staff are very friendly and attentive. The rooms are very unique and are available with the sea view which is awesome to view and sit and relax outside with... More

We stayed in Tubotel for two nights, namely for the experience of staying in an unconventional, "unsquare" hotel. The place was overall very clean, well kept, very friendly staff, tasty and hearty breakfast (included), close to the Cenang beach, all that combined with wonderful sea view - altogether much above our expectations. I especially loved the evenings when we were... More

We were impressed by the novelty of the place and the views. We figured the shared bathrooms were a reasonable trade-off for the low price. Overall the experience was a mixed bag. There is a lot of room for improvement. Good: ------- * The round rooms are certainly unique. * Prices are quite low especially if you choose the "garden... More

Small tiny rooms in round shape, no bathroom inside the room, but i loved this place maybe because of the location & the view just you step of the hotel, few minutes from cenang beach it place is absolutely worth the price. Suggested for calm & peaceful holidays. Staff are very friendly & also they serve you healthy breakfast.

Read some of the negative reviews before I arrived, and personally the experience I had was not half bad. My experience when staying at hostels is that I'm comfortable with small space and shared bathrooms as long as the facilities at the hostel and helpfulness of the staff are good - and this applies for the Tubotel. The Asian lady... More

The sea facing rooms have fabulous view. We enjoyed the sunsets everyday from our room there. The People working there were friendly and helped us in renting a Car. Breakfast served is good. But the tubes are very crampy and there is no place to even keep your luggage, If you are looking for comfort stay, then this is not... More

this is an awesome choice to the romantic and peace lover. the tub is so unique and the surrounding is so romantic. the best things to do here is not hangout with your handphone but enjoy the environment, blank your mind with the flights and boats pass by while enjoy the windy from the ocean. please bring along with you...

I think this place very much suits an adventurous, open-minded traveler who thinks staying a tube with a fantastic view of the ocean is pretty cool! If you need the comforts of a big room with a TV and your own bathroom, then this place is perhaps not for you. We loved it. And the views of the sunsets are... More

This place really suitable for couple in love or honeymoon , the seafront tube definitely is the first choice , the view is stunning especially the 'Sunset' view . Breakfast is good and the staff they are all friendly and understand English . The only downside is toilet and bathroom are sharing basic so got no privacy at all.
