                Location, price, room size.

                The cenang rest house was easy to find and cost only rm18 from the airport by taxi. The location was great (right on the beach) however it is located next to a beach bar that has loud music playing until 1am. This was fine for us but not ideal for those who like an early night. We stayed in the "bungalows" which was clean with a cold shower, there was only a small issue with gaps in windows where Mosquitos could fly in (we didn't have much problem though.

                Near to the beach, affordable and great location

                Cenang beach has always been my favourite destination in Langkawi. Will keep on returning to this hotel as it is one of hotels that is right on the beach with affordable price. It is nearby everything you need...restaurants, shopping malls and shops along the street.

                Cheap, Basic, OK

                Stayed here for 3 nights with a friend in their basic room. Room was small but tolerable. Toilet was not really clean but I can manage it. Not your 3 or 4 star hotel but it is exactly on the beach. You can request the room facing the ocean. Those rooms are bigger for families. Walking distance to all the food and shopping in Cenang. Right in front of Motor/Car rental shop. Basically if you don't mind sleeping in a box then you can stay here.

                Chalet right on the beach. Friendly staff.

                cenang rest house is in a good location and is cheap. however it is rather shabby and run down. the rooms were clean and have air-con but we had to change rooms 3 times to get one with air-con that worked efficiently. they have onsuite bath and toilet but very primitive. we had to hassle them to get some reasonable bedclothes but they also lent us an electric kettle which was much appreciated. mainly for the price and location i would stay there again.

                location on the beach, good air conditioners, clean rooms and easygoing staff.

                I book a 4 person family room for a day. On the photos of hotel's page, it has a view to the beach but in fact, there was only one family room (its inside is shown on the photo also) at another place nearby. This room has nothing but: 2 queensize beds, a TV on a low, small table and a small structure for drying clothes (as can be seen on photo). The worst thing is that there only 3 thing in the bathroom: a toilet, a shower head and a tap near the ground and next to the toilet. There is no place for washing face or brushing teeth and hanging clothes. And we have to change to a double room with a kingsize bed with no extra charge. I was satisfied with the new room although it is small. Last words: the family room cannot be used until the hotel supplies some more small facilities (I cannot understand why they donot).

                Nothing special with the Cenang Rest House. The rooms are simple but do the job, the building is fairly new and next to the beach. The wifi works only near the reception and staff is usually nowhere to find. Good price/quality ratio.

                Close to beach, mini mart, Cenang mall, atm and food stall. Just need fine tuning on the room such as repainting. Need a place to wash your foot also after a walk on the beach. Other than that, highly recommended for people looking place near to beach and bar since it basically at the center.

                Suitable for backpackers only and near the beach.”

                CRH is suitable for backpacker or those wanted to just spend their sleep at night or in budget trip.The cleanlines is just moderated and no tv inside the room. Just toilet,bed, bundle blanket and old pillow.Plus, inside the toilet no hook at all.Its really a cheaper chalet near by the beach. Also the main door just using a small locked that u could buy at eco shop rm2. Jonproper locked provided.So it maybe can affect the safety as there are like public walkway to everybody cross to the beach.I choosed the chalet just because we are quit last mins and no so much choice at all. Parking is difficult if u come during weekend especially. If you have other choice with the same price, yes i would suggest u to choose others. What i like are the location is quit strategic just very near the cenang beach. Just need a few step only.Also the girl who at reception is nice and humble. I like her.

                I stayed for 5D4N for a very reasonable price (Family Room) . The room & toilet was clean, the beds comfortable , they provide a cupboard *pls be reminded they provide no hanger but that's ok cuz it's budget ones* better bring your own hanger + wire extension if needed. The aircond works perfectly. Telekung (for Muslimah who wants to pray) is also provided. Thank you.

                a bit of confusion with the rest house”

                once we demanded the room to be at the beach (rather than other side of the road), it was a pleasant stay

                This guesthouse confuses the guests by selling rooms for two guest houses, one of which is on the beach (no swimming pool) and another one 5 min walk to the beach in not a very nice area and with a (dirty) swimming pool. The latter place was where they tried to put us first. A slightly ugly place that needs some sweeping and cleaning. After saying we will leave if they don't give us a room at the beach - changed the room to a bigger and nicer one on a right side. The second room was considerably cleaner and better, still simple. The staff is quite nice. The bars close quite early so we always dines elsewhere.

                Our main reason for the cancellation is due to cleanliness around the building and inside the room. I got bitten by bedbugs as well. We don't even change clothes and decided to find other place. We don't mind to lose the money we paid as long as we don't experience a nightmare. You may consider Cenang Rest House if you don't mind about cleanliness or if you travel alone as a back-packer.

                DO NoT EXpect Much!! Good for backpackers and animal lover only. The first room has "insect" crawled out from the drain. We asked for a room change, the second room has similar cockroach incident, so we accept it as "nature". Please do not be mad with the local who works there, they will help u as they can, however the management hotel owner dont care much, the worker will only do their job with small puny wages. we were an adventurous couple, we only need aircond, good water supply and acceptable toilet, so our stay is OK. the best thing about the hotel, its situated just 10 steps away from the wonderful cenang beach! :)

                the door of a1 is not working good. i am so afraid of not able to close and lock it one time. however, the place is perfect for going to the beach anytime you want. the wifi only work when you are close to the office. they have laundry service. the room with 2 beds is big enough for we 4 people.i suggest to book earlier to get another room next to room a1, facing the sea with a small balcony.
