It was a real pleasure to stay at this place. Jen is such a lovely host : welcoming, accomodating, helpful and free. She spent a lot of time to provide all information needed. And she helped us to book and organize some trips. And she gave us a malaysian bun at our arrival. In addition, the flat is very well...

The host Jen was really welcoming, she told us where we could eat and local sights to visit. The room was acceptable, but you could hear all the outside noise and extractor fan the whole night. However, we were given the outside toilet, which has a separate lock, firstly it was very inconvenient taking keys to unlock the toilet every...

Jens guesthouse was fantastic! Jen sat down with us when we arrived and talked about the local food and where to find it. She also told us about the local sights. The room was spotless, airconditioned and a private bathroom. The kettle was in the bathroom but that was ok as it was a big bathroom. There is a living...

We only stayed at Jens Homestay for one night before heading to an island, but felt extremely welcomed and comfortable. We came from Kota Bharu that day by bus and had a really long ride. Patrick the host picked us up from the bus station. He checked the bus times for us for the next morning. Since there was no...

With a price range of over a hundred dollars, I didn't expect much from this stay at KT. Therefore I didn't plan for a check-in on time, instead I spent my own sweet evening time at the beautiful Penarik Beach and arrived at the apartment only after 8pm. I have to take the opportunity to thank the owners, Jen &...

This homestay has no dedicated parking lot, so you need to make use of public meter parking on both sides of Jalan Kampung Tiong. Going up to the apartment was a mental challenge. First you have to negotiate steps challenging those with heavy luggage. Then one of the 2 lifts was under service, and we heard residents grumbling that it...

The host has been really helpful, providing recommendation on the must-have food in Terengganu as well as providing assistance in various other ways. Also, arranging parking space for us during our stay at Redang island resort as well as taxi for us to the Jetty. Really appreciate her helpfulness and warmth welcome which gives us a memorable time in Terengganu....

A good stay for one or two nights to travel around KT. A good stay especially it it closed to Kampung Cina and you can spend your time there. However, the water pressure is rather low and the light for the corridors are not on during night time. WiFi is not working and may need you to switch on and...

We stayed one night in the Pisa room of the apartment on the 8th floor of this building, in a two bedroom apartment, sharing a bathroom with the guests in the second bedroom. The apartment was clean and very well-located, and our host was very helpful, informative about local eating places, which was a challenge due to Ramadan. He even...
