The hotel is quite nice. Peaceful, relaxing. Away from crowded. You can hear and enjoy the view of airplane landing and take-off from your room. Make sure you select the room facing to the sea. You will love the view. The price is affordable. The hotel staff is friendly. Breakfast is nice. Love the banana pancake. I really recommend this... More

Overall, the experience there was good. The price was affordable, the staffs were friendly, the room was clean as well as comfortable and the view there was awesome. This place is indeed great for the backpackers. However, there's no prayer room for Muslim and we had to go somewhere else to perform the prayer. Malaysia is an Islamic country, therefore... More

We stayed there 5nights and we are so happy that we had stayed there. We had a tube without Seaview but that wasn't bad. The bathroom was very clean and big. The staff was so friendly and helped us when ever we asked them. The breakfast was the best , we could choose between toast with different kinds of eggs... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago. The room itself was good mainly because it was different, its separate from the toilet/showers and has no area to stand (other than the bed) but you can put your things under the bed so not a big issue. There were a couple of sun beds which were nice and the bar... More

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.
