                    Okay for the price”

                    We stayed in a deluxe king room on the 2nd floor. The view was nice if you don't mind a field with broken down machines below. The mountains and palm trees were nice to wake up to. The bed was nice and large. The only downside was the uncleanliness and the broken stuff in the room. Our towels, pillows and sheets had a lot of stains on them and occasional holes, the cups had lipstick smearings on them and the mirrors and vents looked like they had never been cleaned. The hot shower had only 2 options as well - cold or boiling. We had to turn it off and on all the time to get a normal temperature in between. Doorknobs, drawer knobs and lights were also missing. The cleaners made a lot of noise during evening and morning as well.

                    Clean, Spacious & Friendly Staff

                    First of all, i want to extend my greatest appreciation to Amara Guest House Manager, Mr. Nelson, who was so kind, friendly & helpful to my family (especially with my kids). He was so caring to them. Amara Guest House is just nearby Langkawi Jetty & Kuah town. The room is so spacious! However, if you travel with elders, or OKU, kindly take note that their rooms is located on second floor and they have no elevator or escalator. However, they have a staff who will help to carry your begs to your room. No breakfast, no swimming pool. But hey, it's Langkawi though. The beach is just 20-30 minute away & you should try local foods! Thanks Mr. Nelson for being such a good host.

                    My family and I stayed for 2 nights. There are no lifts, quite a hassle for my elderly parents as we were on the 2nd floor. The bathroom floor was very very slippery, due to the type of tiles. The bathroom could do with a little more scrubbing. TVs in our 2 out of 3 rooms weren't working, and couldn't be fixed. The other room had only one channel. Two of the light bulbs in my room were off. Towels come in different level of cleanliness (weren't dirty, but some were old and stained). Our air cond was leaking drops of moisture too. We love the king size bed, although a couple more pillows would be great. The staffs were very friendly and super helpful, so kudos to them. Overall, this place could be much better if maintenance done well.

                    The receptionist is a bit clumsy. No elevator, not suitable to elderly people. As the room is on the 2nd floor. We book for 2 nights and on the second day, they are not changing the towels. So, we need to ask the cleaner for new towel by our own . Got iron and iron board provided in the middle of hallway. But while i'm ironing the clothes suddenly it turns to black out. After do report to the receptionist, they took quite some time to repair and we end up wearing wrinkled clothes. Air-cond not functioning well. Thumbs up for ample parking space, location that near to shopping places and water dispenser.

                    The Reception counter just like the pictures, nice.. but the rest of the experience was not. Produced my check in slip with booking number. Funny when the counter can't locate my bookings, she had to call her boss to verified it. The room, even its cheap but there's leaking / overflowing water from shower in the room to the alley between the rooms. No housekeeping. No elevator, just stairs. If u really on tight budget and can't even spend an extra dollar, then this is the place for u.. but if u can stretch just little bit, stay away from this place or you'll regret.

                    This is not a place to recommend to anyone. The room is big but horrible. The bedsheets are stained, the bathroom is old, no toilet paper . We have heard customers cancelling their booking altogether at the reception and getting a refund. If you have no choice, and need to stay near the ferry, it's good enough for 1 night, not more.

                    affordable & big room size.

                    very slow, poor & non attentive staff service. upon check in my room did not have any towels. the reception assured me that they will send towels later in the afternoon. before i left the hotel later in the afternoon for outing i reminded the reception about the towels, but when i got back to the hotel later that nite no towel was supplied & the reception counter was closed. i was only given the towels the next day after i have called the front office to enquire about the towels that were supposed to have been supplied upon check in. very frustrating as such basic amenities as towels, hotel guest have to wait till the next day. furthermore i was informed that the hotel was not fully booked when i check in but the 'staff' attending at that time didn't bother to get towels from other rooms that was vacant. so unfortunate as amara is an ok place to stay but with unhelpful, slow & unattentive staff service is a very big turn off for guest staying there. i hope the management will look seriously upon this matter. thank you.

                    The hotel manager gave us a ride to the ferry because taxis were not available on the Eid holiday. The king size bed was nice a comfortable. There was free hot and cold water. The hotel manager let us borrow a knife to cut fruit. He told us where to go for a scooter rental. He let us park the scooter under the cover of the building so it would not get wet. I would definitely stay there again.

                    Cheap, nice and good

                    When I reached the hotel, the staff greeted me and my family with smiling face. The room design is simply but quiet clean with a large bed. It suitable for 3 of us. Overall I felt satisfied staying in this budget hotel. Fast check in and fast check out.

                    cheap, comfy and big room

                    though it has been opened for quite a while now, still looks new and i'm assuming there were some construction going on with the condition of the stairs and floors. no lift, rooms are all located at second floor. room is big , value for money but not quite a view. located in Kuah town with easy access to shopping malls and dining.

                    Big space room and clean interior

                    Location is about 2km from Kuah 's jetty, yet it is ok if you rent n drive your own. Easy access to Kuah town area, no restaurant or any convenience stores nearer. room was great with air conditioning and celling fan. Room space is quit big and clean interior yet there is no lift/escalator .

                    Price, nice bed

                    Stayed there for 2 night. Staff is friendly and helpful, you can order several short trips to the main attractions just from this guesthouse. There was a big nice bed in the room and LCD TV. AC and other facilities worked well. All the rooms are in 3rd floor, and there are no elevators. No sea nearby, but the view from our room was nice - green mountains, but some rusty trucks just on the left in the vicinity of the guesthouse. Very quiet place, good for having rest.

                    New hotel, new facilities and quite roomy.

                    This new budget hotel at shop lots, out of busy area is suitable for family. Just good enough for resting at night while at day time was spending with shopping and sight seeing activities. The breakfast also was provided and a few stalls around for more choices of breakfast.

                    Near to Jetty

                    The room was normal, size is good enough for that value... There is no lift and the rooms are all at the third floor, need some climbing and it is not suitable for elderly. Near to jetty 15 minutes walk and 5 mins by car.
