The Cabin Langkawi
Ranked #23 of 165 Langkawi B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 January 2017

The Cabin is relatively cheap and is located on the main strip of Cenang beach and less than a minute walk away from the popular Yellow Cafe.

Is it a little worn and showing signs of wear and tear? Yes. Paint is a little chipped around most places and some of the power sockets didn't work. Did it have very little amenities? Yes, I wouldn't count on their shampoo or body wash set provided but towels and toilet roll were provided. But we didn't choose the place because we wanted a Ritz experience and we paid for the room accordingly.

A couple of points though. It was extremely cold for my partner and I, possibly because neither of us have the habit of sleeping with the AC on. In our cabin (1020) the AC unit was blowing directly to the bed. There were no ceiling fans or other sort of ventilation but thankfully we slept fine through the 2nd night without the AC on.

When we were leaving on day 3, we did realise that there seemed to be small bugs crawling around between the sheets and blanket. They didn't look like bed bugs, neither was there a lot of them to be utterly disgusting. Truth be told it was also likely that we treked them into the room after a day on the beach.

All in all, you don't pay much so don't expect too much. It's decent enough for a short stay and is fairly centrally located along the main strip to be at most 10 minutes away from most stores.

Easy access and located just a walking distance to the beach, restaurant, duty free shops & Underwaterworld. But blanket & floor mat were in poor condition. Might need to change to a new one. Staffs were friendly

I do not normally write bad reviews if I do so, It is best to avoid.
The Cabin Langkawi

A Horrifying night that no one wishes to experience.

Halfway through the midnight, there is road construction that gives us melodies that we would not beg for.
While we are asleep.
I wanted to take a leak, switch on the lights and suddenly the bulb exploded.
My finger jolted back by the small leakage of voltage.
Fortunately, none was injured by the shattered glasses that flew out as fast as Usain bolt.
The shattered lightbulb is actually only less than a metre distance away on top of our bed.
Just imagine your eyes opened when the bulbs burst, it could be the finale of Final destination.

I was in shock and totally blinded by the darkness in the room.

I reached out for the door and sat outside the balcony to compose myself.
We approached the reception and they were closed.
There's a signage that wrote

We call but no one picked up the phone.
Our neighbour was awaken by the commotion and assisted us in making calls that is listed to their(The Cabin) website.
This carried on for a good 30 mins and no one is on the other line to assist us.
(What if someone is trap in the room)
(What if there is a fire occurring)
(What is the use of putting contact numbers if they are unreachable)
I still have the call logs that I am more glad to refurbish.

We collected ourselves and tried heading to the rest of the hotels on the entire street in Pantai Cenang
We walked and enquire almost 15 hotels + calls in other area hotels.
All was fully booked as it is a weekend.

We were desperate and our body is draining us out.
We approach the 24-hr KFC and literally stone there while waiting for daybreak.

I was beyond frustration and intend to talk it out with the staff at the hotel.
It is still close, we have to wait til 8am.

We sat outside the hotel and intended to blast off at the first receptionist that we would come in contact with.

Staff came in a motorbike
We explained to her in a nice way and eventually make a hell of a scene as she did not take into consideration how urgent these matter was.
The Manager of The Cabin would not come down to see us and pushes the responsibility to the staff.
Refund was made and we are more desperate to find a bed than to wish for anything more as The Cabin is beyond hope.

We headed to the beach and requested for a sun tanning chair to take a nap as most of the hotel has room only after 12PM.

Checked into Nadias Hotel as the staff took sympathy of our episode and hurried their housekeepers to make us a room.

We were dehydrated, torn, frustrated, fear of drunkards fooling around, fatigue from pulling our luggage around.

Needless to say, The Cabin has the highest amount of mosquitoes flying around and with their caresses being stamped all around in the room furniture.
It is equally stuffy in the afternoon as the container traps all the heat.
Was greeted with a odour during check in that we felt might be the previous tenant unloaded themselves in a heat of romance with no proper housekeeping done.

The Cabin lacks intensive values that an hotelier could provide.

If you wish to go through my experience, please book with The Cabin for unforgettable memories.

The cabin langkawi is strategically located in pantai cenang, near to the beach, eateries and bars. Even booked a birthday surprise and island hopping with the hotel which was awesome. Everything pre planned and discussed was carried out to perfection. For the price paid, its highly recommendable!

We stayed here for two nights as we hadn't had a very good stay in a hotel down the road. We arrived on the same day and luckily could get a room. Room was clean, shower was okay but it was good temperature wise. Very nice porch that we were able to sit outside on and relax. Only small niggle was the Wifi very intermittent, and you have to walk up towards to reception area to get it but apart from that good place to stay.
