A friend booked this hotel since it was holiday season (Hari Raya - a Muslim festival). and most other hotels in Betong were full. It was a big mistake. We were charged baht 1500 (abt MYR150) the first night including breakfast. It was horrendously expensive and the room was certainly not worth the money we paid. The reception staff do...

My mother and I stayed here as we believe that it is very near to the nearby attractions. The positives of this hotel though are that it has quite decent WiFi connection (or it might be because of the lack of guests), decent enough toilet conditions, pretty friendly staff and amazing views from our room! On to the negatives; 1....

The hotel located at middle of the Betong city town with a mountain view. From the hotel you can walk around for clubbing at night, find Chineses food at restuarant or you can take a body massage (Thai ancient massage) at the 2nd floor at hotel. The cost per night is 750baht for low season with a bathub in a...

Betong Merlin Hotel is just an average hotel,with average facilities.. The frontline staffs are quite helpful,but its a pity they dont really speak or understand english,to get information and direction on places of interest is next to impossible,there are no brochure available,guess the Thai Tourism is not interested in promoting the border town..

Spend 6 nights in this hotel while on a photography trip. I would consider it better than most of the other hotels around due to its startegic location. Walking distance to all the food outlets and most of the entertainment centres. Standard massage service available in the hotel. Crowded during the weekends due to cross border activity.Will recomend for its...

I spend 4 nights in Merlin Hotel in Betong end of December 2011. The hotel is old and dark, the room are old but clean, -not excessively clean. The bathroom is acceptable, with hot and cold water. Location is central and near restaurants and the market. There is a very good thai massage at the first floor; it is a...

“Avoid rooms on the street, because of the noisy disco (until 1 am). Avoid the rooms on the corner, there is an aerobic class on a house roof at 6 am, which is very loud.”
