I travel all over South Est asia, (I'm Thailand Rob) and this was my second VISA run from Thailand to Malaysia. This was my first stay at Banana but I have to say it was a pretty good place to stay for a few nights, minus a couple if issues. Staff is wonderful, a bit overworked in the mornings but...

Easy access to nearby shops ..hawker stalls..best of all...All the watering holes for a couple of beers...fruit ..burger stalls. Rooms either ceiling fans or air con available. The nights would be loud as...

The room was nice and quiet, across the yard with a good shower and air condition, American satellite channels. The staff should go to charm school because they were not friendly at all and you could see that they looked down on you even though you couldn't understand what they were saying. The food was mediocre, it's better to walk...

I stayed on the second floor, right at the back. It was generally comfortable, but for the price I was paying (S$47.50 per night) I expected better. My electric kettle wasn't working, and I could not delay check out to 1pm. Also, there are mosquitoes even though all my windows were closed. There should be better pest control. I could...

Banana Boutique Hotel is situated in a very prime location. I really like the location. Staff in the morning who helped with the check in the morning was really helpful. Gave and suggested different options for my friend who joined on the trip on the very last minute. Ended up choosing to add an extra mattress in the room. Hotel...

I was a solo traveler walking in off the street. Near the end of a 2 month trip, I wanted to go a bit upmarket for a change in a place with a bit of character and that's exactly what I got. OK....good location on Lebuh Chulia but set back so no noise problems. Staff friendly/helpful. Large room and bed,...

It is on a good location, there are many coffes restaurants to choose around. Hotel has antique chinesse decorations as well as a koi pond which is kinda cool. Rooms are okey for a guesthouse. Guests are mainly europeans who are doing their visaruns from thailand.
