Value for money hotel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jun 5, 2013
I drove from Kulim to Betong last May.Modern Thai is located in the heart of Betong Town.Overall, it was a pleasant trip. The hotel is value for money. Staff are friendly and helpful.The only draw back is limited parking space for hotel guests' cars.
Date of stay: May 2013
Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise.

We went Betong last week and planned to stay 2 nights.The hotel was easily sighted along the street, and was relatively new if you compare it with other hotels at that area. First impression was good. However, we were given 1 key per Deluxe room, instead of 2 keys. And we realised we were not the only travellers being given 1 key per room. Because there were people knocking on their doors to ask their room mates to open the doors in the middle of nights. When there was silence on the street and we were trying to grap some rest after a few hours driving, all we could hear were noises, footsteps, crying, shouting, talking, knocking .... And the door locks were designed in the way that one has to shut the door hard if we want to leave the room, so again, we were awaken in the middle of nights many times because of this.In the end, we only stayed for 1 night and left with exhausted bodies, as didn't manage to sleep at night

Its my favorite hotel in Betong, Location is good and very relaxing place, do choose Deluxe Room, comfortable with all necessities. I goes there mostly for relaxation and photography as its still very much surrounded by greenery and forest. most important is a very safe place. Most of the places of interest are within the town except visiting former Communist villages, hot spring and the famous Wooden Guan Yin. From Kuala Lumpur, you may take a Bus from Pudu Central or at Jalan Duta. Daily 2 buses in the morning and late evening, traveling time is about 5 hrs for the morning coach and for the evening is about 4 hrs. Take note for those taking the evening coach arriving into Penkalan Hulu Station (Kroh) is around 3 - 3.15 am. The small station lights are switch off and toilet lock, just have to wait until about 6 plus am to take a cab that will bring you to the Betong Thai Immigration, the cost is RM12 per cab. Returning from Betong is RM25 per cab that bring you to the Malaysian Taxi waiting area. Going into Betong, prepare RM2 for filling the Immigration Card, RM2 for getting your passport stamp and returning back another RM2 for exit stamping of passport.

Room tip: Choose Deluxe Room and above.

Been here for a night stay, the staff was friendly and the Deluxe room was superb! It is clean and it has all the necessities you need! So need not worry to bring your hair dryer or towel. And they're pretty clean too... With the price offered, totally worth it!

Room tip: Go for the deluxe room for the nicer bathroom

Hi Snake777,
Thank you very much for your valuable comment and feedback. We feel sorry about the noisy guests on the same floor during you stay. In cae of disturbing other guests, our night supervisor will inform and ask the guest to calm down & make quite. In many cases, we also move the guest to other floor when room available.
Thanks and wish you can stay with us again.
