This establishment is located not at the main strip of Batu Ferringhi. It is within 30 minutes drive to the main beach strip and from the city. You have to get on the overhead bridge to cross the road to reach the beach. Public transportation is accessible and taxis can be arranged by the hotel. However, I do recommend having... More

I stayed here in June. Firstly the hotel is situated very far into the woods away from the city. If you want to go shopping you have to either take the taxi or the public bus which is at least half an hour drive from the hotel. When I stepped into the rooms i was shocked. The pictures online are... More

Great hotel scored some good deals and booked 3D2N stay. The highlights were the great location near to the beach nice pool and quiet atmosphere. Buffet breakfast included was so so, but couldn't care as I was out and about most of the time for food.

I'd read many bad reviews before I booked this hotel, but I'd no choice, this is the only available hotel on weekends. Hotel appearance is quite good, lobby is also very big. We got a seaview room, very beautiful. Yes, the room is a little bit old, but not like unacceptable. The only problem is soundproof of room. Location is... More

We have just left after a week staying at the Hydro Hotel and had a really enjoyable relaxing time. Although the rooms could do with a bit of updating, everything was clean and functional, so any issues here were quickly forgotten. The staff were excellent - friendly, accommodating and professional - especially 'Harry', the bar manager, who always provided a... More

Wi-Fi in rooms is too expensive. House keeping staff sit on the bed watching TV as you walk past other rooms. Truly no professionalism there. Evening bar... More
