The location is quite a distance from the main road. Free parking provided even the road heading to the hotel is pretty rough one #potholes. No proper street lights which could be very dangerous during night. Frontliners was okay, acceptable. No proper hotel tour and weak signage (ex.where's the washroom?) around the hotel. The seaview room number 1 is excellent.... More

This is not a criticism. It really is a tube you sleep in which can feel a tad small with luggage (this goes under the bed) but it does have a lovely view of the ocean (no beach as this is to the left hand side of the resort) and the air conditioning kept us cool at night. I thought... More

We stayed here for 1 night at the sea view room. Wonderful experience for the "tube" design, amazing sea view and good customer service. A little far away from the town and have to share bathroom. However, overall is good for us. Definitely will come back here when we visit langkawi again.

It's not really near from the Town but it is a great escape for something peaceful and calm atmosphere. The sharing bathroom was not as bad as expected. Quite clean and I don't mind to go this hotel again :)

Tubotel has nailed it in terms of location and novelty of staying in tubes (concrete pipes). It's a place for travellers looking for a serene environment, a novel experience and breathtaking seaviews. It's NOT for you if you a looking for 5* accommodation and private bathroom. What I enjoyed most: The common areas and terrace (although I had a garden... More

This is my first time to stay in a "non-square" room for a trip I went. The experience staying with Tubotel was unique. Being round, made the stay feel warm and no doubts, the sea view from the room made my day at the second I am up from the bed. :) Though Tubotel is having shared bathroom for guests,... More

Tubotel is amazing hotel,breakfast is delicious the room's door and windows is directly to the sea , if ur looking for relaxing place then this is it. The main market in langkawi is about 5 min by car. The beach is 10 min walking. There is no bathrooms inside the rooms. And you have to go outside your room. Day... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June (low season) If you like spacious rooms don't opt for the tubes!!! They are cool and it's an experience and the sea view tubes are beautiful but they have very little space except from the bed! Breakfast is amazing. By far the best breakfasts I have had since travelling! The nearest town/... More

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
