“Nice surprise”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We discovered T Star by accident and what a good find it was. Room very comfortable and lovely to have our own little fish pond outside. The visiting monkeys provided entertainment every morning, do not leave anything out they will take it!! We booked in for 10 days which was a bit of a mistake as I think we could have got a cheaper rate for the last few days. Strange that we got the room cheaper in the first place if we booked on line.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms do not get monkey visitors.

I have check in on 4th March 2014 late night , my flight make me feel so tired. my impression of this hotel is 0 when i was in taxi but the impression so wrong due the hotel very silent and make us feel so peaceful.

The reception so helpful and friendly it's make my self very happy even am so tired that night. the room i very good and clean.i got a room as per my request to have a room near the reception.my room number M-02.

in the morning 1 reception guy help me regarding the late check out he give me the explanation that i need due i have attend the interview at other hotel and it's make my check out will be late.so he make me understand and tell me what should i do.

But a little bit of adjustment for LADY in reception , please smile even your not feeling well. in services line we have teach to be the SUPER PROFESSIONAL LIAR.why i say that it because even we don't like , hate to do the job , tired , and everything but we still need to pretend to do the job and serve the guest. so lady please change the attitude.

the room and surrounding area i very good,very clean,and very peaces. it's good for the bag packers group.

We stayed here for four days in february and loved the place. It looks great, the staff is really friendly and bed was comfy. The bathroom is a nice size and the cold shower a treat in the heat. The tiles in the bathroom got quite slippery though. The monkeys were great entertainment ( this will probably change as we did see tourist feeding them and they will become more aggressive as a result) only downside was the heat in the afternoon, not very pleasant to be there around that time, but morning and nights were nice and cool didn't need the fan even. A mozzie net is a must at night but there weren't as many as I expected. Would definitely recommend to budget travelers.

Stayed here for 3 nights over new year as was only accommodation we could find that wasn't crazily priced. As mentioned, the first thing you are recommended to do is open the doors to let fresh air in which is a first and a little suspicious. The room odour is not pleasant and we thought it was more a damp/musty smell caused by the lack of natural light or ventilation. We presume T-star is an offshoot of the T-shoppe chain of shops especially as this place is behind a T-shoppe. A budget type concept that is very popular with the local monkeys, the highlight of our stay was an irate Swedish gent trying to shoo a hairy little visitor away with a slipper :) Probably only suited to those who are short of other cheap options.

One of the first things you are told when you check in is to open the doors for 15 minutes.... The rooms stink of some kind of wood treatment, the loos are so slippery BUT the place is so leafy and cool, except the half recliners on each individual terrace are impossible to ist in and the matress is in the floor. With a little thought and improvement this would be one of the best places to stay in Langkawi. Come on guys, a bed frame, a bathroomfloor and simple chairs on the terrace and I would give you a few more stars... What is that smell????

Room Tip: Ground floor is good enough, no point paying for first floor.

Pros

Cons
1. Loud music is terrible. starts at 11pm and doesnt stop till 4am
2. No room service. You have to clean the room yourselves

4. No hot shower.
