Very good and clean.”
I really liked this place. Location-wise it's in a place that is dead after 6pm so if you're looking for more activities you need a car or different location. If you are looking for peace and relax, than it's okay. The only downside is that it is right across the entrance of the cable car so between 9am-6pm there's loads of noise from the outside. However, you might be out during these hours anyway, so it shouldn't be a big deal. It was not a problem for me. There are a few restaurants nearby and plenty of things to do including the 7 wells waterfalls, horse-riding, beach (in the nearby resort) and the cable car with its adjacent 3Dcinemas etc... I liked my stay, would recommend it. The staff were also very kind and helpful.
Great location! ”
The location was everything for us and the most convenient aspect of our entire stay in Langkawi the cable cars are literally a few steps away. There are a lot of food places and restaurants around the park just keep in mind they’re a little more on the pricey side. You can hire a scooter from reception if you need to go anywhere outside of the park. Seven wells is just down the road worth the walk definitely a better view from the top if your willing to walk up the stairs. There’s a beach around the corner and the night markets a scooter ride away. We didn’t have much interaction with the staff but they were nice enough. Like everyone else has already mentioned not much really happens after 8pm as the park aside from a few restaurants are closed.
Nice and inside the park”
Big comfortable room and the location is good, the cable car is on the site. It was fun but however it is a very long ride to the city centre or to anywhere, therefore do buy your dinner early from within the park, there's a subway and other restaurants here, however all closed by 7pm. To stay here you would need transportation, the hotel can arrange for a motorbike rental which was good for us to ride around. Oh yeah there are lots of monkeys, basically the hotel is at the hill area so the temperature is nice and the air is fresh.
Handy for access to activities ”
Unfortunately we were not told at time of booking the cable cars would be closed, the sole reason for booking here, however we found other things to entertain us in the nearby area, such as skytrex as also the waterfalls were dry. My sons room had a water pipe burst during the night someone was on hand to fix fortunately but lost a lot of sleep in the early hours. Basic room, okay for a night.
Good just to see cable car”
Everything is closed in the evening at around 7pm and there is nothing to do. around. Internet also didn't work all the time. Nice staff and helpful. Good location just to visit cable car. I didn't want to stay in Ceinang at the beginning by fear of too much tourist but i regretted it. At least you can walk around late night in Ceinang. In this hotel you need a taxi or a motor bike to get around, in Langkawi in general.Taxi to ceinang is 35 Myr. The complex around seems like Disneyland. Saying that i didn't like Langkawi much, not authentic for me, but i was lucky to have a good experience as i met very nice people.
cheap for a reason”
the hotel is really cheap but also one of the worse hotel i have ever stayed till date. the hotel is very very dated and there are stains on the quilt cover, floor, toilet bowl to the walls. Internet is forever loading and sometime if you are lucky it worked for a good 30 mins. It’s like a haunted hotel to me. there is no draw in oriental village but i believed it does have its glorious days before. the only perk is that it’s real convenient to skybridge which probably takes up about half a day there with the other attractions that comes with the package which you compulsory have to purchase to take the skycab ascending up and purchase another ticket for sky glide (or alternatively walk) before reaching the skybridge. it is also near to the 7 wells waterfall but if it’s during the dry season, don’t bother to visit that place. Grab is convenient so you really don’t need to stay here. Pay more to stay at cenang beach. You will not regret.
Place was nice and location was amazing. Only con would be the room we were in didn't have the best wifi therefore after everything closes at 7pm we could not do much as wifi would keep cutting in and out.
Affordable hotel with acceptable facilities”
Very suitable if u want to go to cable car on the morning, because it is located just next to cable car station.and tge parking is availble for hotel guest as it is the nearest parking to the station. Cons; it is very dark and quite at night.please do not come alone
The hotel is situated right in the heart of Oriental Village, just next door to the cable car and other attractions within it. It is thus the ideal spot for spending time here as one can freshen up! There is also a great selection of food outlets and shopping. It is also near to Pantai Cenang, Tanjung Rhu, 7 wells, crocodile farm, wildlife farm etc.
Price, location all good”
Paid about S$25 for a night. Location was too good. wifi was not super strong but it was alright. Lift was spoiled so u need to carry your lugguage up to 2nd or 3rd floor. Overall very good stay for a solo female.
NICE PLACE TO STAY”
That's a nice place for vacation. Clean room, speedy wifi, well-maintained facilities and friendly staff. The location is not really strategic, is a bit far from others attraction spot except skycab and seven wells. There are not much restaurant surrounded the hotel and also not much choice available. we have to drive some of the miles to get the food.
Great for a night or two to see North West Langkawi -Had a great surprise in the morning”
A decent basic hotel, located right in the Oriental village, home to the cable car/sky bridge and next to the seven wells waterfall. Also possible to walk to Pantai kok beach. I Room was comfortable enough and facilities were fine, if basic. Plenty of restaurants in the Oriental village for breakfast or lunch, but these shut up around 6pm, later opening places require an adventurous walk (bring a torch) or a short ride. Almost nothing in the way of bars etc in the vicinity. A real unexpected bonus came after the oriental village shut and at night and before it opens in the morning - the park receives a lot of animal visitoes including dusky leaf monkeys, otters, large monitor lizards and hornbills. Animal lovers should definitely get up early and see what they can spot!
Great location ”
Good location in the heart of the park, but not much to do after 7pm. There is a marina close by where you can get some good food, shame the hotel doesn’t have a swimming pool or somewhere to eat as it could be great. Does need a Refurb to bring it up to standard
I really like this place.”
If you want to relax, you can choose this place. It' s a little bit far to Eagle Square but it' s okay. You can rent a motorbike to drive and enjoy the view. The staffs are lovely and nice, they tell me everything I need to know about Langkawi island.
Nice room good service”
The place is in oriental village, it is good if you like to stay near an easy access to the cable var and other amusements the area provides. The rooms are nice and clean with hot water in the shower. Staff was friendly and helpful and always there for us. The Wi-Fi was working really bad though, and it is a bit far away from the town and beach areas.
Perfect location with great price.”
The location is perfect for cable car, 3d art muzium, and few other park (bunny park, sky trex,etc). You just have to go downstairs and you’re there! Perfect time in the morning to go for cable car before the crowds come. There’s also chocolate shop with low price just like kuah area. Food court also available during day until evening time. For the cons, maybe about the facilities, the lift is out of service during my visit and no gym or swimming pool if you are looking forward to it. Overall it was a great experience.
Value for money”
This hotel is best for couples with young kids for 2 days to cover Geo Park . Cable ride is just 10 steps away. Quite convenient. They provide all basic facilities. Its not a resort or hotel with swimming pool etc...
thanks for assitence we stay geopark hotel..very friendly staff and clean room.very privacy
Excellent location ”
Right beside sky cab in the heart of the park. Room was very spacious and had a lovely shower. Short walk to seven wells.
Conveniently located in Geopark”
You can get here by Uber or Grab and there are taxis around. It has obviously seen better days, but it's not bad for the price. It's right next to the cable car terminal. There are not too many restaurant choices late in the evening so eat early. Ideal if you want to catch the early cable car. The queue could get long later.
great hotel in great location”
the location is near to all the entertainment, beside the skycab entrance actually , and all other places here. however, downside is the entrance to the hotel is a bit, confusing. you have to ask the skycab employee ( green shirt) for the entrance. great for parking your car too. xoxo. value for money. great rooms.
Next to cable car is a plus point ”
Plan to stay for a night & take a ferry from Telaga habour to Koh lipe for diving. So Geo Park is the nearest hotel to Telaga. On the way can explore the cable car ride to the mountain top which is worth the trip. Took a grab to Cenang beach for a sumptuous sea food dinner, night shopping & beach side bistro for supper.
only good if you want to use cable car ”
the entire place is dead at 7.30pm. no grab or uber after that. eat early at arab stall, subway or cafe. good location only if you want to go up the cable car. not advisable to stay more than one night.
Great place to stay, good sized clean room, good location quiet at night but plenty to do in the day. You need your own transport on the island. Friendly helpful staff. No frills but good value. Bathroom could do with a Reno but otherwise great place. Suited me so stayed an extra 7 nights, could walk freely around the park at night, good fun & saw otters in the lake after dark, awesome!
2nd time stay”
Overall ok. Just lack of parking spot and lighting and roadsign to the hotel. I had to park far away as there are only 5 parking spots beside the hotel. Very confusing especially in the dark. On my first visit i had a terrible time finding way in/out. very dark n dangerous. Do something about it. The good parts are the hotel is very peaceful with less noise, further added to calm nature sound like birds, river flowing etc. great for those who wanna stay close to nature. :)
Nice Budget Hotel”
The hotel was in a strategic location which was next door to Langkawi Cable Car and approximate 2km to Telaga Harbour, definitely an ideal place for us to stay since we'll need to catch up the ferry to Koh Lipe next morning. The front desk staff named Hafiz was very nice and helpful, though the hotel was a bit run down but the room was still clean and equipped with all the essential amenities. In a nutshell, we had a pleasant stay in this hotel.
Good and Pleasant ”
Good Location, just next to cable car. Many activities for children (small & bigger children). A good shopping area. Has a nice food court with a variety of food. A quite place for a relaxing vacation. it's near to pantai Kok which is quiet beach. And just a few minutes to seven wells waterfalls. The hotel is clean & very affordable too.
The hotel is located just under the cable car, about 20metres away. There are many souvenir shops, mini park for petting the animals, and also a newly opened 6D theatre. However, it is located about a 45minutes drive to the town. If traveling at night, there is very little street lamps and the road is winding. No other attractions nearby, and the souvenir shops by the hotel closes at about 7pm. So the hotel looks 'dead' after that. There is nothing to do at night. However, if you like quiet time and nice surroundings, this should be the hotel for you.
A lovely boutique-type hotel.”
l would strongly recommend this if you are looking for a quiet getaway (it is right next to the cable car) and you have to rent a car as you need to travel a bit for food choices and you *MUST* go on the Langkawi Cable Car trip for the great view up the Machincang range.
We stayed at Geocity Hotel for four days. Had a wonderful time relaxing and absorbing the carnival atmosphere almost everyday. The cable car station is just next door. During daytime, there are many locals and tourists. However, the area is quite after sunset. For dinner outside hotel, one needs to drive/walk to the nearby Burau Bay Hotel. All internal shops close at 8pm. Entrance to the hotel is a bit smelly since there are elephant and deer enclosures nearby.
Hotel for good comfortable stay”
We had very comfortable and releaxed stay at the hotel. Very friendly staff. Hotel staff arranegd for our Island hopping tour and if you need to hire a car or motor bick hotel staff can help you with that as well. Rooms are clean and tidy and air con in rooms are very affective we had to switch it off after couple of hours every night. Location of this hotel was very good at the starting point of cable car and many more activities to do like elephant ride, horse ride, etc. Seven wells water fall was also at walking distance. All in all very nice and comfortable stay near nature.
Hotel can be seen is rather dated. We would recommend to run the water in the toilet, be it the sink or shower because when we turn on them the water was brown! We had to let it run for a good few minutes. The staffs were helpful when we asked for tour packages or even booking ferry tickets for us. Location wise it is just beside the cable car and the waterfall. Do note the surrounding shops closes 7-8pm so there is nothing much you can do at later in the night here or get anything to eat or drink. So on the second night as we were running low on mineral water and approached the staff if we could have some instead he told us to get from a vending machine nearby however since the whole place is already close, the vending machines were switched off too!
Not great signage to parking, lift never worked for 6 days 'under maintenance', yeah OK. The room was very basic, the bathrooms were old, tired and seriously unclean. The toweling was the thickness of that of a 1 star hotel and not a 3 star. No food in the area after 7pm, no room service, no restaurant, no breakfast. The receptionist everyday when i went to work was always sleeping on the sofa in reception.... Not great, cheap and you get what you pay for.
Good economical option ”
Geopark is an excellent choice if you want to visit Seven wells waterfall, Seven wells, cable car to sky bridge and a large 3D art park. It is also very close to SkyTrex. The hotel was not super clean but not dirty either. A nice front canal adds value to the experience
The best cost effective option in this area”
This Hotel is in Oriental Village which is an amusement park and Cable car resort. The area is scenic and green. Mountains view from the rooms! There are numerous restaurants and activities for children. All the affordable restaurants close early so eat your dinner early. Dont miss going up the Cable car to see magneficent views. Kok Beach is nearby and so is Telagah Tuguh (Water fall) and Seven wells (Water fall and Hiking) which is a must do! I extended my stay because i love the thick forest and beach! Excellent views from the Hotel! Room Tip: Mountain view: Opposite cable car Stayed: March 2018
Not really what it used to be”
The room was alright. It was clean. The bathroom had a broken knob in the shower. The whole room had only one electrical socket for charging devices. The staff were less than forthcoming and not really eager. The Wifi was patchy and did not really work. The hotel is basically a tourist hotel that caters to family holidays and may have been a good place in the past but has fallen into disrepair. They need to step up their game. It is okay to stay one night or so.
hotel is good beside the skycab and other facilities, but when the cable car station is closed at 7pm, the places is totally no people is very quiet, in the night after 7pm to next day morning 9am is inconvenient for dinner and breakfast, because the restaurant closed at 7pm until next day morning 9 am then open. the staff is friendly and helpful. this hotel is for people like quiet at night and for horse riding because the stable is about 800m next to the hotel.
Stay At Geopark Hotel”
Value of money, you cannot find hotel at this amount. Location is amazing, 30 meter from cable car and other activities. Install grab on your phone and use grab to travel anywhere in Malaysia. Peaceful place. All the restaurants just near by. Few Arabic or Hilal restaurants near to the hotel.
was there on ramadhan and reached the hotel around 5.30pm but the place was already quiet and the staff said that due to ramadhan, all shop and places closed at 6pm. no live after that, but it's good for you who wants to stay far from crowded. but you really can't go anywhere if have no own transportation.
Good place for a day or two days stay ”
The place is good and surrounding is really awesome. Only issue was it is located far from the town. I had to take taxi for each and everytime I had to came out. Better for a one day stay and utilise that day to do skytrax other related activities in the surrounding. Especially please do not visit on Hari Raya Time as the place shuts down by 5 pm and the guests in the hotel must visit to town to buy food.
Only for one night”
This place is only for one night for someone who wants to go to cable car early next morning. I arrived at hotel at around 5:30pm. And this place is closing since then. Only one restaurant opens till 8pm, and nothing else around it. It was present stay for one night, but nothing to do at night. Tv has only few channel, and signal was not clear. Animals are around literally. Gangs of monkeys are king of the park and even I saw crocodile like big lizard roaming around near the lake. Really nature friendly. Hotel facility was ok.
Good for 1 night”
This hotel is inside of the park so after enjoying the cable card and all other attraction this is a good place to stay for 1 night and it was cheap when we went there. Cleanliness could be improved. Room furniture is a bit outdated. But still a good enough for a 1 night stay.
Its OK for the money”
TV channels and TV are not good, bedding OK, towels not great, very old, needs updating but for the money its good value and nearer to where i needed to be.
Hotel situated in à kind of Disneyland that closes at 7 pm Very quiet then”
If You rent a scooter it is Very Easy to go elsewhere where the Beaches are full of people,where restaurants don't close at 7 pm.
Nice Hotel in the middle of the Oriental Park, right next to the Cable Car/Sky Bridge rides. 15 minute walk to 2 lovely beaches that have excellent sunsets.
Nice and strategic hotel if anyone plan to grab experience ride a skycab”
It is okay if planned to ride a skycab but it's far away from kuah jetty. If you need to catch the ferry at early morning, it is suggest to book a hotel near to jetty because hard to find grab early morning besides it's too quiet during nights.
Poorly maintained hotel with musty smell”
It looked much older and worn out than the photos showed. The hotel has a musty smell that hits you the moment you enter. One of our rooms smelt terrible. No amenties provided. Extra bed spring is completely gone. Kid sank into the middle of the mattress. One and only lift was not working so had to lug suitcases all the way up. Only saving grace is the proximity to the Sky Bridge (just a few steps away), waterfall and the Telaga Harbour. Car park is free but too dark too navigate from road into car park during night time or early morning. Narrow lanes. Not recommended unless you have a congested nose for your entire stay, and a car to get some decent food.
Location is superb! Staff was very nice, they helped us book a mangrove tour which was also great btw. However, we had an edge room and wi-fi was horrible there. Also, water was rusty.
Too sticky with rule ...everything is a no”
Only if you dont have a chiose.
Overall good Only facilities need to do improvement and service. Aircond problem, not cold Room 116 Friendly staff and helpful.
The hotel looks old but the room was ok. The towel was very hard needs to be upgrade. ”
Its nice place for those travel with kids. Quite far to find food by night time. Very quiet place at night
Near the sky cable and sky bridge ”
The lift was down for 3 days 2 nights and I don't see any effort to repair it. Too much climbing with luggage. Nothing to offer in the surrounding after 7pm.
Great location. ”
Pretty much a dump. But the staff is awesome and it's a great location.
Hotel does not have many of the features advertised. There is no pool, no bar, no restaurant. WiFi did not work in rooms, and barely was fast enough to check my email in the lobby.
Highly recommended Friendly staff Value for money Everyday room cleaning
Very good location n facility with all beautiful memorable value”
Need some more food n entertainment outlets till late...
value for money”
nice ambience value for money
VALUE FOR MONEY”
Nice ambience ,Value for Money
near to sky cab, other activities & food”
very good place for a 1 night stay to go on sky bridge, sky cab, 3D place.), have little shops, food court(late open early close), subway is a saver for us because it closed late than other. Hotel rooms are good. everything is ok.
Great basic hotel room right next to cable car. Clean, hot water, wi-fi a bit iffy. Even a lovely view over the mountain. If you want a posh evening meal or a bar go 15 mins walk up the road to resort next door and use their facilities and beautiful beach.
Very Remote and Old”
The hotel is not very well maintained and looked liked it hadnt been renovated for a very long time. The bed mattress sinks in and we had itching afterwards (skin rashes) - i think the mattress is old. As for the rate, it was the only good thing about it. However, the food around the area is damn expensive and u gotta drive out very far to get more food variety at lower prices. I would think that next time i will pay more for hotel and stay where there are more people, more things to do and definitely more food choices.
Pro : good place for stay if you plan to get a cable car next day cz within the same area Cons : slight difficult to find the reception as it was slightly hidden..should ask the guard for that..very limited parking space nearby hotel unless you park at parking A which the main entrance of the village,but it a bit far from the hotel reception...if you plan to get a rest first early morning of the nextday,it gonna be a bit noise as people start visiting the village..but hey you should leave early to cable car before get crowd and hot..
Pros : Recommended for 1 night stay. Walking distance to cable car, museum 3d art just next few steps away. The famous 7 wells also nearby Free parking. If u do not stay in hotel, u have to pay rm10 parking tickets per entrance to enjoy cable car and other amenities ( different ticket) Staffs are very helpful and friendly. Cons : local foods are very limited. No activity after 7 pm. Far from shoppimg center. If they can add on simple breakfast, it will be much help. Otherwise, good stay! Very recommended.
Great for the cable car”
I chose this hotel for access to the cable car which cannot be faulted at around 50 feet away. It is very good for what you pay. One word of warning. the local eateries shut down early so you either have to eat early if, like me, you don't have transport, or take a taxi or walk down to the harbour.
One might stop before ferry to Koh Lipe”
Basic hotel which served our needs. Room was ok, but at Rm80 wasn’t expecting much. Very good location (5mins from harbour), no breakfast or much in terms of facilities but was spot on for what we needed = cheap place to stay after late flight to get first Ferry to Koh Lipe on trip from KL. Would recommend if you have needs similar to ours
Heart of the Geopark Oriental Village but not much to do after 7”
Was generally pleased with our stay there. Place looked good from the outside but somewhat disappointed when we entered the rooms. Rooms had a stale smell which we realised came from the pillows. The pillows had a stench to it that we had to keep some of them in the cupboard. The towels also had holes in them. Other than that, the location is good is you plan to start your day early at the Geopark and to spend the whole day there. However, everything closes by 7pm so you will have to drive out if you would like to get anything.
Good Value ”
This hotel is located right next to the cable car. we stayed there for 1 night before heading to the airport. A night cost less than USD30 and they provided all basic you need. Also their staff are friendly and helpful. this area is empty after 8pm and hard to get uber/taxi
colorful location, v pretty surroundings, easy access to sky bridge and various attractions ”
hotel is at exceptional location with loads of eating places and other attracyions at walking distance. cable car to sky bridge is at doorstep... great value for money and really charming atmosphere... the only put off was dealing of a receptionist working at night time... everything else was perfect and it is a very good option for honeymoon stay.
If you have a car, you are fine with here. Room is value for money. Everything closes after 7pm. So if you want a good quiet night, yes, recommended. In the morning, will be a little bit crowded due to the cable car operation time. Zon duty free is 5mins walk.
