Sweet Inn
Ranked #47 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed March 9, 2012

I think the worst part of the room was the dried slime which covered the upper walls and ceiling in the bathroom. The rest of the room was poorly cleaned with cobwebs left in the corners.

The shower in the bathroom didn't work. The receptionist assured us it would be fixed and kept making excuses every time we queried when it was going to be fixed. The shower never did work.

It is hotel policy not to make up the room. If you want to have your room made up you have to ask. We did ask but the room still wasn't made up. We complained but the receptionist couldn't remember us asking for the room to be made up.

On one occasion we asked for the key to our room and were given somebody else's key. When my wife asked him to be more careful the receptionist went into rant and started going on about how "People like you have no respect for other people." It was a tense moment and not what you want on your relaxing holiday.

When reception closes they have a security guard who looks after the hotel. Unfortunately the receptionist doesn't trust the guard with the keys to rooms so if you have left you key at reception he will try and give the key to other guests in your party. They in turn will have to wait for you to come home so you can get your key.

The breakfast is nothing special and would really benefit from some screens to keep the flies off the food.

The walk to the beach is about 10 minutes.

There is nothing to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the ground floor. Call and check you have a room before arriving. Another couple b...

We arrived at the sweet inn and checked in to what I can only describe as the worst place I have stayed in in Asia in the 5 years I've been coming here.The room was unclean,mouldy,smelly etc.We complained and was told we couldn't move till the following day,when we did finally move after lots of hassle the next room was acceptable( just).Breakfast is basic and all around the food area was filthy.Don't ever stay here as they don't deserve your hard earned cash.

This was the best place we stayed in 18 days trip SE Asia. It is less than 5 min walk to the beach. They really care about cleanles so the room was very clean and spaceus, bathroom was clean too. Cosy beds,A/C, fan and fridge in the room.They had asian and continental breakfast open buffet and all that for 100 RM per day for triple room. Stuff was helpfull. We enjoed to stay there. Loved the common area to chill out.

I came here in December 2011 while travelling through Malaysia. While we were waiting in the check-in line, the customer before us was verbally attacked by the male receptionist. I dont know what the commotion was all about, but all I saw was the receptionist getting angry at the customer's request. Suddenly, the receptionist threw an object at the customer and a fight ensued. The receptionist started shouting tirades and jumped over the counter and physically attacked the customer. Quite frankly, we were shocked. We left after the incident ended, I have a feeling the police was even called to the hotel.
This wasn't a good first impression, so thankfully, we got out of there before anything else esclated.

Do not read anything into the reviews by others that say this is overpriced and dirty. This is a great value guest house, which has good rooms with airconditioning for under 100RM. We have stayed a couple of times now and we never plan on being in the room for long as there are plenty of other great things to do in Langkawi. However, each time we are pleasantly surprised at how good it is.

Room Tip: Upstairs probably better than downstairs.

We visited this hotel just before school holiday's in Malaysia when it becomes incredibly popular with locals and families - this emphasises what good value for money it is. It is on the traditional 'backpacker' strip but offers air conditioned rooms and a TV (albeit one with only 3 channels) and breakfast. It was full for the majority of our stay. The hotel staff are so friendly and helpful they make the stay much better and one can tolerate the trickling cold shower all the more.

Room Tip: On the ground floor you can hear quite a lot as the walls and windows are quite thin, one on the sec...
