It's a budget hotel so i don't have high expectation. But for MYR 180/night, I expect at least the room to be clean, with basic necessities such as some toiletries and water kettle for coffee making (the motel doesn't serve breakfast). We were given a room on the 1st floor facing the beach with 1 queen and 1 single beds.... More

Nice and clean room. This motel is suitable for someone who is looking for cheaper room. Dont expect more if you just pay for cheaper room. The receptionist is nice and friendly. Just in front of Cenang Beach. Near with a lot of restaurants and food stalls.

Look a bit old although I stayed the building behind Turkish stall. The bed is old, even there is a steel jutted out from the bed. Dangerous. The coconut shake's stall in front of AB Motel is suck. Reasonable price. Polite receptionists. Noisy during the midnight of my stay. A group of young people.

Stayed here twice in January, either side of a trip to Thailand. Room was basic, affordable & functional. 2 double beds, AC, fan, threadbare towels & hot shower. A good base of operations, not a resort. Breakfast not included but we found a great 24hr place across the road. Beds could of done with a top sheet. No lock box.... More

The floor hadn't been clean for a long time! The towels provided were really old! Full of insects Good AC. - bathroom: could be... More

We most certainly did not have agood visit here. Very basic room but we were expecting that from price but what we were not expecting was that the bed and bed linen were crawling in lice! We were quite rudely told they could not give us a new room til the next day-we arrived late in the night-the receptionist clearly... More

I stayed here for a day with my friends and overall, we were satisfied with the condition of the hotel. Our room was on the 3rd floor, there's no lift provided. So if you have luggage or elderly with you, best to take first floor. Our room costs about rm150/night. They only provide soap. The rest, you have to buy... More

We couldn't find anywhere also to stay in Langkawi, as everywhere was full! So we ended up here! The room was extremely basic (not even a bin in the room, I had to find one on the hall way to being in!) There was furniture all over the hall ways, units and old mattreses, it was so loud at night... More
