In our travels in Malaysia, this was a step above most other guest houses. Yes it's basic (no a/c, squat toilet) but it's spotless and well-cared-for. There are murals painted on the walls, mosquito nets above the beds so you can sleep with the windows open, and the family that runs the place is friendly and helpful. We left our... More

This is the sixth year in a row that I stay in the Tahan Gust House. In fact I often travel to Taman Negara where I conduct a research. The property have a very nice garden where you can rest in the evening reading and relaxing. The room, as many travelers wrote, are basic but very clean and comfortable. Moreover,... 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
