Have the owners changed? We were looked after by a man, and having looked at the other reviews I have noticed a women is mentioned, the room was very basic and yes we had the hole in the floor toilet and the awful smell. We stayed in March 2014, on the ground floor round the back of the building, and... More

We stayed here in March 2014 and our room was broken into. Not only were our belongings taken or smashed to pieces but the room was completely smeared with faeces. Not that there was a toilet to use anyway should the robbers have wished to as it was just a hole in the ground! When we told the guest house... More

We were offered a downstairs, back room; T4. Room very basic. Toilet a hole in the ground which when ever you flushed, a horrific aroma of faeces and urine would fill the bedroom. Below standard, but on how much we were paying a night you can't complain I guess. Although this is no where near as bad as our last... More

Tahan Guesthouse is a nice place to stay ! The rooms are not very big and luxurious, but the most important : it's clean ! The owner and his family are very friendly, so your stay will be pleasant and you're just a small walk from the river !

We checked all the places in Taman Negara for a double room, and Tahan seemed to had the best quality-price relation (accommodation in Taman Negara is a complete shame). The place is painted like a kindergarden, and the receptionist is really nice and friendly. They have no hot water and no wifi, but all the rooms have balcony and private... More

We stayed at Tahan Guesthouse for 3 nights and it was recommended to us by friends, a couple, who had stayed there two weeks before us. We had some worries before travelling to Taman Negara because you read a lot about bed bugs, bad hygienic conditions, etc. in the guesthouses in Kuala Tahan, so we decided to give it a... More

The toilet is basically a hole in the ground en there was no warm water, but I didn't really feel the need to shower hot anyway. The toilet started to stink after 1 day because there wasn't really a decent flush system ( just a... More

Our experience was in line with what the earlier reviews have said ... clean, basic, rooms a bit hot but not too small. There were surprisingly few bugs here, though we were expecting to be swarmed. The mosquito net over the bed allowed us to sleep with the windows open for better cooling.

I stayed here for one night as it was the only place available on what was a malayan bank holiday, the lady owner is very friendly, the room was clean and simple, there was a mosque close by so there is so random chanting of allah aqbah at 5am, but this didnt bother me too much.
