“Worst Hotel Ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

The shower with uncontrollable knob, too hot to bath. The room is dirty and tea making facility with filthy cup and no tea spoon, the hotel only provided 2 mixed coffee sachet. As Malaysian, the price I paid not commensurate with value given. I will never come to this hotel again.

Room Tip: This hotel in overall is very sad. They just know how to make profit without thinking the fair value...

Our booking in Langkawi was quite last minute. Although I had made a shortlist of 5 or 6 hotels that were a posibility, then after reading T.A. reviews of this hotel I had, of course, crossed it off the list. Unfortunately my husband had seen it on my shortlist and booked it without reading any reveiews....
I will not repeat all of the adverse comments by other reviews. Just BELIEVE THEM!
If the thought of having accommodation with filthy, uncleaned bathroom, stained sheets, sticky floor, plug socket in shower, breakfast coffee in childs plastic mugs, not enough to put you off then nothing will!

The Aseania is quite an imposing building at the junction of Pantai Tengai and Pantai Cenang. It promised more than it offered. It must have been one of the first tourist hotels when Langkawi began to be developedin the mid-1980s but little has changed since. The decor and furnishings look unaltered since the opening ceremony. The wifi signal is extremely poor and only available in the lobby. The old small screen TVs have only a handful of channels. When we first arrived the taps would only provide mucky brown water and it took some time before the plumbing had been flushed through - I can only assume that the particular room had not been used for some time; certainly it always had a musty smell. Although the swimming pools are clean and spacious, the climb to the pool slides is made treacherous by a combination of running water and wet leaves (there are no handrails). Although we stayed as timeshare guests and our expectations were not particularly high, we also looked at one of the hotel rooms and conditions were no better.

The location is reasonably convenient (5 to 10 minutes from the beach) but exploring the numerous restaurants will involve a lot of walking - Pantai Cenang, the effective High Street, stretches for around 2 kilometres

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the pool rather than the front of the hotel

Saw the photo in the hotel booking website, feeling the resort will be very beautiful.
In fact it is not really clean. The room is so huge but only a little furnitures.
The check out time is 12 o clock straight but the check in time is 3 o clock! I don't think they need 3 hours for housekeeping. We have to wait till 2pm to get a room.
It's weird, because the light inside the room is very dim and we can't switch it brighter.
I will never choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Not to choose this resort, it do not worth that price although it is not really expensive.

Luckily we only booked 1 night in this disgusting hotel. We arrived in Langkawi without accommodation (something i would not do again) and booked one night's stay through one of the airport hotel desks (by baggage reclaim - again, something i would not do again). We were told the room was 225 ringets a night and because of the location (being new to Langkawi) we agreed this. However, upon booking - the price went up to 350 for the night and we were told on the phone by an apparent staff member this was because we were 'foreigners'. We should have just said no there and then but it was late, we were tired and we didn't have a clue where else to stay. OK - so all of this was our own fault, however let me get down to the hotel itself....

Upon arriving, we breathed a sigh of relief, we were in a central location and the building looked nice, but that's where it ended. Arriving in reception, we had to pay the room rate in advance. We were shown a room on the basement floor, there was no one to help us with our bags (even though there was a luggage trolley in reception). The room stunk of sewage, was dark, mouldy and dirty. We refused to stay - we went back to reception and said we wouldn't be staying at the hotel and were told that we wouldn't get a refund but they could give us a room on a high floor, so we felt we had no option byt to have a look. This room (level 4) didn't smell but was grubby, very grubby. The shower head was held into place by an elastic band, nothing had been washed, there were suspicious stains on the walls and the glass in the balcony door was not in it's bracket. There was a tv but the lead was 2 pin and the plug socket 3 pin so couldn't watch this (not that i planned on spending much time in the room at all).

We decided to stay for the one night. In hindsight, i'd rather have swallowed the cost of the room and not bothered. We ended up sleeping in jeans/jumpers on top of the bed sheets with our beach towels on the pillows.

There is no sound proofing and we could hear absolutely anything going on outside the room.

The breakfast room was heaving, food was basic, staff were rude. We couldn't wait to leave in fairness. The thing that shocked me was the amount of families at this hotel. Personally I would not let my children stay in such a place!

Stay on your peril. I won't be returning.
