Century Helang Hotel
Ranked #47 of 105 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed 16 April 2011

Stayed there after my nightmare at the Meritus Pelangi and some issues with my departing flight..
The hotel is clean, located near the airport, rooms are spacious. The pool was a bit dirty and the hallways had stained carpets
The Food was priced reasonable but it was not great. The staff doesn't speak good English so it was difficult to communicate at times.

The staff was friendly and courteous, I asked for extra towels and extra water, which was complimentary, and got everything very fast.
We were worried about the noise, since it was near the airport, but we had no issues whatsoever. I must say the beds are a bit old and not very comfortable, but they were bug free.
Overall it's a good hotel for the price paid.

I stayed at this hotel with my spouse for 2 days. We were mesmerized by the hospitality of the hotel staff and services. The hotel is very near from the airport just a 2 mins drive but little bit far from the main city. The main entrance of the hotel and its interiors looks amazing and its more beautiful than its shows in the pics. The rooms are very clean and cozy.

Hotel has the facility of internet access with a very reasonable cost. We needed to use the computer for offline use and the hotel staff provided us without any charges.

The buffett breakfast was good and also the ala carte dinner. It had some nice varieties for veggies. To sum it up, it was a memorable experience for us which we will treasure always.

This hotel can be a good budget hotel since the room is spacious, clean and comfortable. The toilet was really clean and well up-kept. Additionally it's 15 - 30 minutes walk from the Langkawi airport and it is center between Kuah town and Pantai Kok. If you are choosing this hotel, please don't put high expectation that you will have a sea view. You only can be able to see the airport or the paddy field view. The thing which was really dissatisfying for me in this hotel was the service provided. I called for room services as I was pretty hungry during the night and was lazy to drive out. The thing which I ordered was steak, but the operator inform me that the steak was in frozen condition, thus, they could not cook it. I was like what the hell??? Of course the steak is frozen. The should have give me a better reason than this rubbish thing to me.. What a service!!!!! I had made a complain the next day to the reception counter, yet no action was taken!! It is so irresponsible and not professional at all!!!

I went to Langkawi with friends and stayed at the Helang hotel.

The hotel is huge and beautiful. The decor of the hotel is beautiful and very pleasant. The rooms are large and spotless. The rooms are fitted with very good toilets and shower.

The hotel has a beautiful swimming pool and the airport is almost a stone throw away..I could even see the aeroplane from the room window.

The staff are nothing to write home about, especially at the breakfast..they were very slow and the options for breakfast is very limited. We had to wait so long for the breakfast we almost missed our tour bus.

The problem with this hotel is it is far from all the happening places. There are no other bars or hotels around and it is not easy getting around to other places in Langkawi. It is not on the beach. Even getting to the nearest beach is far.

But for people not looking for much of night life this is a perfect place.

Room was big but don't look under the bed. You'll be surprised at what you find even though surface looks clean. Hotel is very quiet and you wonder where are people. Variety of breakfast items is not much. Certain section of the hotel needs to be properly maintained and maybe refurbished. Pool is not that clean. The only plus point is it's near the airport otherwise you may end up spending quite a bit on taxi if you want to go to town area. If you want to do shopping, Kuah hotels is a better choice or if you prefer beach, Pantai cenang can offer more.
