“Happy hour a bonus !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We moved to this hotel after a disastrous start to our first holiday in Southeast Asia. We walked in on spec, a lovely lady found us a room for our stay at a great rate and offered a choice of beds ! . First impressions were of a modern fresh hotel with willing staff . Room was excellent ,bathroom clean and lovely shower . The room was at the back with pleasant views of traditional fields leading to jungle . The famous Langkawi eagles are also visible at times .If I continue it would be only to repeat the views of the other contributors. We liked the hot and cold water availability but might suggest sachets of coffee in the rooms . It would be 10 out of 10 if that was the case . Oh and finally it was nice to see a proper bar in the hotel and not feel like a pariah when we wanted a beer before dinner ,especially with a happy hour . We wouldn't hesitate to saty there again .

Room Tip: Ask for one at the back ,not on the road side only because the view is good.

Fave hotel is a modern chic hotel with unique architecture and a nice long swimming pool. It is located near Cenang beach (10-15 min) walking distance. Staff is friendly and helpful. The room décor is nice with queen size bed and a big bathroom. Everything is new in this hotel. We really enjoy the hot shower, quiet air-con and free internet. The hotel is exactly what you see and expect from their hotel website. They even have a free cold/hot water dispenser which you don’t need to buy bottle water. There is a Turkish and Chinese restaurant (10-min) nearby. For a budget hotel, it is fabulous.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the rear away from the traffic noise.

Everything is still new, the facilities are all one can ask for, it is clean, has good breakfast, a nice bar, and is in walking distance to the beach and the shops. No complaints, really! I particularly appreciated the free filtered drinking water dispensers on all floors, and the very friendly and helpful staff.

Room Tip: My room was to the front, but still there were no noise problems, except one night when a rugby game...

Good day Miss Frisch,

We are delighted to hear that you are pleased with your stay with us! Many thanks for your reviews. We have shared them and our team members are pleased that you are happy with our services during your stay.

And yes, we do take priority in the cleanliness of our rooms and pride in maintaining and presenting our hotel as new and fresh. Also appreciate that you mentioned our water dispensers.

For reader’s information, as we are a select-service boutique hotel, we do not provide water kettles and mini bars in the room. Water dispenser is easily available on the hallways of all floors for both hot and cold water. While for mini bars, you can always seek assistance from our receptionist to assist in storing your items in our personal refrigerator.

For the room’s views, you can contact our Front Desk Receptionist for changes and we are more than happy to make the changes for you, depending on our availability. I sincerely apologize for the disturbance you have encountered but am glad that overall it did not affected your stay with us.

Once again, I thank you for your time on writing this review and we hope to see more of you soon.

Warmest regards,
Dian Pramono,
Resident Manager

When we had our wonderful stay on Langkawi we had the great luck to see a band playing at Fave Hotel, they are called "The Miracles".
Their performance was very nice, we could wish our favourite songs and they played it for us. It was an unforgettable evening and I like to see them again playing.
I really hope that they will play at Fave Hotel more often so next time we will stay on Langkawi we can watch and enjoy them more times.
So if you spend some days on this marvellous island head to Fave Hotel and ask for "The Miracles" and spend an evening at the bar there and watch their gig.

Overall quite pleased with this hotel for the price we paid. Had good breakfast everyday and it was located close by to the main beach/strip where you can shop or go eat at many different places. The room was small but good enough if your mostly just coming back to sleep/rest.

4 of us stayed for 5 nights 10th to 15th March 2013. We had 2 rooms at the back of the hotel, 251 & 329. Both were more than adequate, clean & comfortable. We arrived a day late, due to travel problems. We informed the hotel as soon as we knew, & they changed our booking to suit with no fuss or any extra charge. The hotel location suited us, abiut 10 minutes leisurely walk to the main beach, which was fabulous, spotless & well patrolled by lifeguards. The hotel staff were all cheerful and helpful. We must make a special mention to bar staff Rosli & Syukor, who tended to our needs admirably every evening, & always with smiles on their faces. Breakfast was more than adequate. We didn't need to use theroom service menu, but what we saw looked good.
Will definitely go back. Jock, Sheila, Ann & David.

Room Tip: Select rooms at the back of hotel over looking fields, not the road at the front.
