“Very uncomfortably beds and very bad wi-fi.”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We where very impressed when we went into the lobby, looked very Nice and clean. When we godt into the room, there was a bad smell and the carpet had plenty of burnt cigarettes marks. There was no connection to wi-fi in the room, and the tv signals were also very poor.
The staff had left the bathroom window open, so when we went to bed there was a lot of mosquitos in the bedroom. So we had plenty of mosquitos bites in the morning.
The bed, the terrible bed, worst i ever slept in ny entre lite...... The springs in the madrasse was stikking up , it seems like they forgot the "upper madrass"

We told the staff we were leaving early in the morning the next day and asked them if they could book a taxi for us and also told them that we were coming for an early breakfast. They told us everything will be ok for tomorrow. When we came for breakfast, they were not finished, Even though we came 20 minutes after opening. We had to eat very fast so we did not get late for the taxi, the staff had booked the day before.
After eating we waited for the taxi, which did not come. We asked the staff what was happening, and the staff hurried calling for a taxi. They either forgot it or they did not understand what we asked them the day before.
We have been to mann different hotels in Malaysia, this is the worst.

Stayed there for a weekend, hotel on whole is neat and clean.
I could put up with that they only serve breakfast to 10am, that they only have 4 local TV channels, restaurant is never open, but worst of all is the damn beds!!!. It was like sleeping on a bed of springs!! Had to use cushions from sofa to get some sleep!! If they can rectify that then will be great!!

Room Tip: If you do decide to stay at this hotel take a sleeping bag or something similar with!!

The bed is so hard you can actually feel the spring. I had to put another comforter on top of the mattress is make it sleep-able. They only serve 5 dishes for breakfast; fried glass noodles, fried noodles, fried vegetables, beef and white bread. They have toaster, but on the 2nd day, it broke down. from then, I didn't bother to return for the breakfast and decided to eat out. On the very last day, I saw they add one more item - Oranges. It is so pitiful...

And the installation of the bathroom tiles was so bad, the water has been stagnant forever coz water can't flow into the floor trap. The tiles also is so slippery, my husband actually fell during shower.

Room Tip: Each unit got 2 rooms, 1 twin and 1 double. If you happened to book 1 room only, the other room will...

We stayed here for just two days, but we had a very pleasurable stay. We'll suited for large families. Check out the four bedded family room. Centrally located and well maintained. Fairly new place, but there are some issues with the paint not being applied properly. Overall well worth the price.

My friend booked this hotel for us to stay together in Langkawi. Consist of 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, large living room and kitchen, this hotel offers a very good price compare to the quality.
My first impression when i looked to the pictures, it is too good to be true to get such a good looking room with a very affordable price. But, when i arrived..well its surprised me! Not only for the rooms, but also the cleanliness and wifi access.
The variety of breakfast is not much, but still OK compare to how much we have paid.

The minus point is only the quality of the spring bed.

the rooms we booked were 3 junior rooms but when we requested to change into bigger room the manager was very friendly, also honestly suggested how could we change the rooms without getting any extra charges. While we requesting for the news towels and hairdryer, the room service came efficiently. Facilities were satisfied but the breakfast provided has to improve as not much choices and taste oily, might not suitable for foreigners' flavor; suggest resort to provide some simple but nice food for easy digesting. The environment surround hotel is quite out-of-the-way, hotel should provide some securities outside of hotel. But overall still a recommended hotel for average price and a group of peoples.

Room Tip: If 4-5 peoples suggested for the twins room (2 rooms plus one living room)

Despite other reviews the Resort (what makes it a resort by the way?) is easy to find and its NOT far off the main road, most hotels are tricky to find the first time. Hotel/Resort is impressive looking and we booked into the equally impressive lobby and the staff were very friendly and gave us, to our surprise, a 2 bedroomed apartment complete with dining table and lounge and bathroom. We closed off the twin bed room and that left us with still a huge amount of space, a balcony and 2 a/c rooms. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable and we were given vouchers for breakfast. We arrived by boat and it was 10 Ringget (£2) to the hotel by Taxi. After that we gave our legs a stretch and walked to town every day, there is a great shopping centre 500m away from Simfoni by the way.
This is the old `crap sandwich` review where I start good, fade in the middle then chuck a good bit at the end.
Yes, our bed was hard and could be improved by a mattress topper.
Yes, there is a nice LCD TV in the room but with only 5 local channels, and they are not tuned well.
Yes, we had breakfast, but it is poor compared to many and is catering (not that well either) for local tastes and could quite easily be upgraded cheaply to cater for westerners which it will attract in the future should it do so.
Staff training, sure, they ARE freindly and courteous but as usual there seems to be no leader. At breakfast there seems to be an adaquate amount of staff but they seem to not `see` what needs doing and need leadership to guide them.

In conclusion, we actually extended our stay here due to the value for money it still offered but the hotel could be so much more.... take note Manager/Owner. We would gladly come back, if only to point you in the direction that WE feel you need to go to get you well and truly on the map. You have the foundations to make yourselves a name.... use them.

Room Tip: They all seem ok. ours was huge.
