Best Seven Motel
Ranked #13 of 159 Langkawi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 18, 2014

We're surprised that this hotel has such high ratings, since it is just an average hotel. We had a room at the front of the hotel, facing the street, which made it very noisy because of all the traffic. Also there is a lot of hard material in the building, so when somebody talked while opening the front door you could hear it in your room two floors up. It was nice that there was an A/C, but it was a bit oversized for the small room and therefore we had to switch it on and off because we were getting cold all the time. The WiFi didn't work half the time.

The staff however was really friendly and even gave us a ride from our old hotel. They will help you to arrange tours or rent scooters without any extra costs. The rooms were clean and the shower was basic but good (and hot).

Room Tip: Try to take a room at the back of the hotel, as far as possible from the (noisy) street.

I stayed at Best Seven Motel for four nights in a family room, as they had no other rooms available.

The location of the motel is off a main road and is about a 5min drive to the town centre. And about 30mins away from Patai Cenang beach.

The room was large and clean, with an en-suite with a warm powerful shower. Also there was a tv and ac. The bed was comfortable but the
pillows are rather hard!

WIFI in the room is very temperamental, but when it works it's ok.

We did think it odd that the room was not cleaned the entire time we stayed at Best Seven Motel.

The staff were really friendly and incredibly warm. They helped us hire a car and gave us helpful recommendations of things to see and do whilst in Langkawi.

If you are thinking about staying at the motel, I would highly recommend you hire a car. It was very cheap (about 60b for the day) and as the motel isn't really located to any beach or tourist spots, there isn't a great deal to do without the use of a car. We were able to explore the entire island and see the different beaches etc and used the motel as a base.

Overall the Best Seven is nice and cheap, the staff are amazingly friendly and it's clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place if you hire a car and may be on a backpackers budget.

The owners only started this motel this year. They know how to provide excellent service and speak very good English.
The rooms have airco and are spotless clean. Bathrooms are a bit small, but good.
There is nog restaurant, but the restaurant next door service great (cheap) local food.
We arrivee very late and didn't have time to go to an ATM. The owner drove us into the city himself and explained everything there is to know. Very kind, especially if you are arriving from Thailand... Malaysian people are much friendlier!! Book this hotel!

Clean Beds, Air condition, HD TV , Good location and everything at a stone's throw from the motel , the customer service is very helpful and friendly if anyone making a short trip to Langkawi not looking for a star hotel this would be a good stay and value for money as well!.
