A good base to sight see Langkawi

We got a clean, modern and functional room with bathroom - presumably others are the same. The breakfast was excellent. The staff seem concerned, are free with advice, and pay attention to detail.

The Agoda photos give the impression of a run-down place; however we discovered that the reality was quite the opposite. The room we stayed in was newly built, comfortable and with functional equipment. The bathroom was spotless and the hot water shower worked extremely well. Free wifi was available and worked for the most part at good speeds, but signal quality was sometimes poor probably due to transmitter proximity. A wifi enhancer would not go amiss. In Langkawi you must have some sort of private transportation like a rental car. Do not forget to bring your driving license! This hotel is located towards the south west of the country, a little inland from the coastline where much tourist activity takes place. With a personal vehicle the south-west coast is not but 15 minutes away with moderate traffic. The location also reduces the driving time back to the airport and also to the other parts of the country where many other interesting things are to be seen. It could be a little unsettling getting to this place at night time as the road is isolated with no street lamps. But generally the hotel is quite central for visiting the different corners of the island. Breakfast consisted of eggs (made to your preference), cereal, coffee or tea with fresh milk, bread/toast with butter, cheese and jam, and some fruits. Breakfast was hearty and satisfying. One con: Towels were provided on day 2 and not on the first night. We carried our own so there was no problem, but it would have been good if they had been provided at the onset. The hotel is run by a husband and wife. They told us of their backgrounds in hospitality work (hotels and such), the difficulties and long hours they faced therein, and their dream and final realization of opening their own hotel (the Box Chalet). We got the impression that they were a careful and concerned people with attention to detail. We were impressed. We concur with the other reviews in saying: Fantastic!

The Box is run by a sweet Malay couple who will go out of the way to make you feel at home. Its only real downside is that it isn't where it says it is--don't be fooled by Google Maps, this isn't beachside at Pantai Cenang. It's set a bit inland, about a 15min motorcycle ride from the main drag, and I don't think you could comfortably walk it. If you're looking for a place to drunkenly stumble back to after a night of duty-free everything, you probably want something closer. But, if you're looking for something a little more set back, where you can peacefully plan your morning while making small talk with other guests in the courtyard, this place is pretty great. If you stay here, rent a bike and look forward to driving around! Langkawi is beautiful, bikes are ~$10/day and gas is too cheap to be true. Pure freedom. Note that the breakfast Fendi cooks every morning isn't free--I didn't find out until the last day that I owed a few bucks for each day I had eaten.

Alright for the money we spent but the location was not good. You need a car or motorbike to get to the beach or other interesting places. The staff were very helpful though.

It is quite far from the Beach, about 15 minutes driver. If you do not rent a car, it is better not stay there. We booked 2-day tour and included pick-up and drop-off service so we stayed there for 2 nights. It is good to enjoy countryside view. It is very quiet there. The owner of the Box is very nice. We stayed at the family room with 4 beds. The room is clean and well maintained. There is no window in the bathroom and I think it is not good.

This is a very simple home stay at the country side of Langkawi. The location of the hotel is not very convenient but never the less when travel to Langkawi, you will only rely on rental cars and taxi. So it was not an issue for me in terms of location. The room was clean and big. It did provide me with a good night sleep.

The Hotel is very far (about 11-12 Km) from Pentai Cenang beach but is near to the airport.It is very far from the restaurants as well so you need to travel somewhere to eat. The owner Mr Effindi is very friendly and we had very good conversations :). Overall a good value for money.

Perfect to expend the night at Langkawi

Confortable room, friendly staff and clean room

Is a very small hotel in a very quiet area. A little hard to find (need to have their phone number at hand) and you need you own transport to move to/from there (common in Langkawi, anyway). Staff was very friendly and helped with recommendations and information about Langkawi. Simple room but had everything we needed it. Would stay again there.
