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

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

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
