Century Helang Hotel
Ranked #45 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights/4 days at hotel helang, langkawi.. It is soo close to the airport, so very convenient. Distance to the beaches are not a problem since roads are good, no traffic and also we got a great car for rent at the airport at a good deal, so driving was a breeze. Pantai Cenang is about 5-6km from the hotel, and that was the area where the food was available in great variety.
The breakfast spread was good, quite wholesome. Rooms are quite big, bathrooms clean. The hotel has some linkup with the FourPoints hotel nearby and so we were allowed to use their private beach and swimming pool. Great!
The only sore point of this stay was that we were visited by a rat at night!!! Nibbling away at some biscuits that had been left out in the open. But nothing the next day though... Apart from this, everything else was fine.

Really nice stay for couple of days. A bit far from beach, but right next to the airport. Good variety of food for breakfast. Clean pool, very big rooms. Just enjoy. To get the most famous beach Pantai Cenang you have take taxi or rent a car. Good for short and long stays. Both for families and travellers.

Room Tip: Take deluxe rooms - lots of space. We loved it.

A group of us decided to spend a night on Langkawi and found this hotel advertised as 4 star with a super special of AUD$60 a night per room. The photos looked great so thinking we had scored the bargain of the century off we went.
On arrival it all looked wonderful and after a ridiculously long time to check in we were off to our rooms.
1st Problem - when we got out of the lift (with broken hand rail) onto our floor the signage for room numbers did not show ours. After wandering around aimlessly for several minutes we ultimately found our rooms whilst noting stained and water damaged foyer carpet. The rooms were quite spacious and appeared clean but were quite dated, light fittings and switches were hanging loosely from the walls and the bathrooms were quite drab with mould in places.
TV reception was not great.
2nd Problem - We ventured off to the pool to cool off and grab a drink. Three staff behind the bar and 15 minutes to get a beer , coke (as they had run out of lemonade) and one cocktail. 45 minutes to get pool towels which we requested and still we assume they were for us as they were placed on the counter of the pool hut on the opposite side of the pool to us.
The pool needed to be vacuumed and there were several broken tiles, none of the water features were turned on, we assumed they did not work.
Problem 3 - if you want a taxi arrange it yourself as the reception staff either did not understand us or won't get you one.
Problem 4 - Room service you have to request more than twice and even then it still may not turn up.
Problem 5 - Nothing is provided in the room not even a cotton ball, teaspoon or water.
Problem 6 - No hot water. Spoke to reception whose response was there wasn't any and to perhaps try the bath instead.
Positives - hardly heard a plane even though right next to airport and a comfy bed.

It appears that once this was a lovely hotel but they have no money so cannot maintain it.

All in all what did we expect for AUD$60, not a lot but I will say that I do not understand where the 4 star rating has come from as we were staying in a 4 star in Penang and it was 100% better than this.

Room Tip: No Idea, perhaps try another hotel

You simply get off the plane and walk for about three minutes and your there. Very spacious rooms....some what very tired rooms and building. Found it very annoying to be swatting flies whilst you eat breakfast...but hey Aust can't talk. Staff are great, and when it came time to get a taxi, we just walked over to the Airport and booked one and set off from there. Your only about $24 RMI from Pantai Cenang Beach...main tourist area....heaps of eateries etc and your only $24 RMI from The Oriental Hotel...starting point for Skywalk etc. The staff made the hotel , very friendly and helpful....breakfast was basic but plentiful. The Hotel certainly does not rate a 4 star, (Going by very old framed Four Star rating above the reception desk) but then what do you measure that by....pleasant surprise was the fridge in the room, so it was a visit to the airport to pick up our wine etc. If your a plane watcher, then make sure you ask for the rooms that have a view of the airport....pool times were a bit disappointing, only from 0900 hrs to 1900 hrs????. Having said that, had a great time with the bar staff by the pool . Prices for this Hotel are very reasonable.....certainly wouldn't want to go any higher.

Room Tip: If your a plane spotter, ask for the rooms that over look the airport.

DON'T COME HERE.
We got the deluxe king, but the reception ended up giving us two single beds. We didn't know until we got to the room. And the room was absolutely filthy. There was mould on the glass and the entire room was dusty. I started getting skin rash. And then we requested to change rooms.
The other room was cleaner, but still really crappy

I was at first skeptical about this hotel after reading mix reviews. However due to its location which is just next to the airport and about 5 minutes drive to Port Langkasuka, I booked it anyway. When I reached, the exterior design of the hotel looked posh and clean. Parking spaces are available
At the reception counter, the service given was fast and friendly. Upon reaching 4th floor where I say, the hallway was wide and clean as well.
The room is big with a king size bed and 6 pillows! Bathroom is big and clean. Bath tub and shower is separated. Iron and hair dryer are also available. Rooms also have free Wi-Fi coverage.
The breakfast is buffet style with both local and international dishes available. However the food tasted average. The nearest restaurants are located at Cenang beach, about 15 minutes drive or to Kuah town, about 25 minutes drive from the hotel.
The pool is big but during my stay, it is not that clean.

the pool is big as well as the lobby.
tv is not functional with 4 channels only.
details in finishing of room and surrounding might be not 100% but who care if the basic needs
are met.
