This is the second time that I have stayed at Tubotel. I had a sea view room which is definitely recommended for the gorgeous views. The tubes are quite compact so if you had a lot of luggage then you might struggle a little but we managed fine with two carry-on sized suitcases. The bathrooms are a little rustic (lots... More

It was a unique experience for me to stay in such small cubicle. The surrounding is nice especially I could enjoy such nice seaview & sunset. The breakfast was not bad too. However dislike the thing about 'shared bathroom'.

We stayed here one night and really enjoyed our stay. For one, the location is nigh-on perfect. We'd definitely recommend going for a sea-facing room as the views we had were great, be it (literally) rain, storm or shine. Town is just a 10-15 minute stroll along the beach away. In terms of space, in our experience you don't need... More

Due to some technical issue happened between Expedia, Bank and Hotel, I booked 2 days and pay the hotel room for 2 days, the invoice also stated check in on 5/5/2015 and check out on 7/5/2015. However. the invoice only show the amount for 1 day staying. After the hotel staff realized that, they took out all our personal belonging... More

langkawilover8, Owner at Tubotel, responded to this review

hello i guess, as there was a mistake from expedia, you should punish the hotel. please also keep in mind, that there was a new check in for that room, you where not to be found, and the staff has taken action. what can we do? tell the new arrival we have no room? you might have not been happy...

The stay did not wow us this time given that we returned for a second time (that explains how much we enjoyed our stay). Tried the square room this time, which gave a little more space than the tube room. Front service staff were friendly and I would like to thank the staff and owner of the place for having... More

We didn't have very high expectations from this as this is marketed more as a hostel. And just before we stayed here we came in from a five star resort. But as soon as we reached this place, we were totally awe-struck by how beautiful it was. The location couldn't have been better. The decor is very personal and fun.... More

This is not a hotel. If you want comfort, space, privacy and something to eat look elsewhere. On the other hand if you're looking for a trendy flashpacker's hostel look no further. Yes, the breakfasts are good, but don't get stuck there during the day. It's isolated, so the pizza-only menu very quickly wears thin. The walk to the beach... More

The novelty of the tubotel was great, we paid an extra 300 ringgits for a sea front view and in general we enjoyed our stay. The views were amazing!! The food was good but in some ways, the customer service could have been improved, when asking for help booking a local day trip, we didn't receive the most helpful response,... More

We stayed in Langkawi for a week and spent all 7 nights here at Tubhotel. The room was fantastic, yes a bit small but that's why we booked in the first place as we had never stayed in accommodation like this before. The rooms do get rather hot during the day, but once the aircon starts the room cools down... More

i stayed for 3 nights at Tubotel during the LIMA event in Langkawi. Nice hostel and cheap, breakfast menu was fine and delicious just lack in local breakfast selection. i love the concept of the balcony with some benches and gazebos for customers to relax and enjoy the view.
