4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

You simply get off the plane and walk for about three minutes and your there. Very spacious rooms....some what very tired rooms and building. Found it very annoying to be swatting flies whilst you eat breakfast...but hey Aust can't talk. Staff are great, and when it came time to get a taxi, we just walked over to the Airport and booked one and set off from there. Your only about $24 RMI from Pantai Cenang Beach...main tourist area....heaps of eateries etc and your only $24 RMI from The Oriental Hotel...starting point for Skywalk etc. The staff made the hotel , very friendly and helpful....breakfast was basic but plentiful. The Hotel certainly does not rate a 4 star, (Going by very old framed Four Star rating above the reception desk) but then what do you measure that by....pleasant surprise was the fridge in the room, so it was a visit to the airport to pick up our wine etc. If your a plane watcher, then make sure you ask for the rooms that have a view of the airport....pool times were a bit disappointing, only from 0900 hrs to 1900 hrs????. Having said that, had a great time with the bar staff by the pool . Prices for this Hotel are very reasonable.....certainly wouldn't want to go any higher.

Room Tip: If your a plane spotter, ask for the rooms that over look the airport.

DON'T COME HERE.
We got the deluxe king, but the reception ended up giving us two single beds. We didn't know until we got to the room. And the room was absolutely filthy. There was mould on the glass and the entire room was dusty. I started getting skin rash. And then we requested to change rooms.
The other room was cleaner, but still really crappy

I was at first skeptical about this hotel after reading mix reviews. However due to its location which is just next to the airport and about 5 minutes drive to Port Langkasuka, I booked it anyway. When I reached, the exterior design of the hotel looked posh and clean. Parking spaces are available
At the reception counter, the service given was fast and friendly. Upon reaching 4th floor where I say, the hallway was wide and clean as well.
The room is big with a king size bed and 6 pillows! Bathroom is big and clean. Bath tub and shower is separated. Iron and hair dryer are also available. Rooms also have free Wi-Fi coverage.
The breakfast is buffet style with both local and international dishes available. However the food tasted average. The nearest restaurants are located at Cenang beach, about 15 minutes drive or to Kuah town, about 25 minutes drive from the hotel.
The pool is big but during my stay, it is not that clean.

the hotel has all you need for a short holiday in langkawi when u have a car.
the rooms are clean and big, so is the bathroom. breakfast is standard but includes asia and continental ingredients as well as eggstation.
the pool is big as well as the lobby.
tv is not functional with 4 channels only.
details in finishing of room and surrounding might be not 100% but who care if the basic needs
are met.

We had a great stay with my inlaws back in Feb 2012. Friendly staff, clean and quiet hotel.
Buffet breakfast was good quality and lots of choices.
Our room was big with 2 queen size beds and a nice view as well. We'll definitely come back in the future.

I was there for 3 nights with my wife and my little son during my vacation in July 2013. I booked the hotel thru Agoda.com with a good price offer. The hotel located next to the airport which just few minutes walk after my landing. The hotel is big with very nice swimming pool which available from 7AM-8PM. My son was very enjoyed with the kid's pool and my wife also happy with taking some nice view picture around the hotel.

The hotel provide many difference services you wanted and the breakfast is great to me as it has many options (Chinese and Western and Local style). It's a bit hard to go to city center (Pantai Chanang beach) which you had to pay RM18 ($6) every trip. It's good to have moto or taxi rent and you will easy to find by talk to the reception or just go to the airport service.

In overall, the hotel looks best for me.

Just a bit disappointed me when i was asking for sea view hotel but the hotel can't provide (i booked 4 months advance)

Room Tip: Ask for the room with sea view on top floor

One Helang Hotel is conveniently located next to the airport, it actually shares the same boundary as the langkawi airport. One can easily walk down to check in or walk to airport after check out. The hotel is a nice property with spacious and well appointed rooms. Room Service at between 2300 hrs to 0800 hrs is very difficult to get so one needs to be careful about that and get their drinking water and tea/coffee set up checked before 2300 hrs.

The breakfast buffet is reasonably good. the Hotel is at convenient distance from Night market, cable car and eagle point.
