Reviewed 7 March 2016 via mobile

We stayed at Wau Hotel 2 nights and went to the jungle on the day in between
Mr Manian, the hotelmanager is worth his weight in gold. He helps you with everything you need and everywhere you want to go. He even picks you up at the train or busstation in the middle of the night, if necessary. His staff is not like him, they are very grumpy and everything they need to donis too much. But just ask for Mr Munian and he will come and assist you. He also gave us a tip to go and eat at the Indian restaurant next door. Great experience, friendly people, you can point out what you want to eat or ask for fried rice or noodles and the man will make it right in front of you, tip: have a roti pisang for dessert. It's very nice. And for those of you on a budget: it is plain cheap. We paid 20 RM for two drinks, 2 fried rice with 2 extra vegetables and the roti pisang
The rooms are very basic but clean, we had ac and a window, not all rooms have that I think

Stayed: March 2016, travelled as a couple

Wau hotel, Jerantut
This small hotel can be used as an economical base for a day trip to the Taman Negara national park, or we used it as a convenient stopping place so as to save one night at the very expensive Mutiara Resort and to be able to go to the resort early the next morning, rather than arriving late in the day.
The staff are friendly and helpful and explain where restaurants are in town, the options to get to the Park if you do not have a car and the working of the rather strange one-way system if you are driving.
Unless you are fit specify a room on the ground floor. On the first floor be prepared to lug your bags up a steep flight of stairs. Rooms have comfortable beds, decent aircon, TV and a wet room toilet / shower. Most rooms do not have windows, which is strange for Westerners, but common on many small hotels in Malaysia.
There is no room safe or fridge.
While not luxurious, this is a sensible, economical base to stay in Jerantut.
N.B. There is nothing to do in Jerantut except wander around the local shops and houses and visit the small market.
Taman Negara is 1½ hours away by car / taxi; longer by bus and around 3 hours if you go by boat.

Room Tip: first floor is up a steep flight of stairs - so feel strong!

fairly basic rooms but with everything you need, comfy beds and the hotel itself is spotless. Mr Amian is a very friendly host and even gave us some of his wife's cooking, the hotel is helpful with arranging transportation to Taman Negara but just be careful with 'Danz travel' as we were told a bus would take us back to the hotel at 5.30pm from the national park, but at 5.30 pm they told us there was no bus available and we ended up getting a taxi back late for the 1hr 20 drive.

The Wau is a fairly basic hotel, I'd say 2-star, but modern, with everything you need and spotlessly clean. The real highlight is the manager, Manian, who will treat you like one of his own children! He told us everything we needed to know before our visit to Taman Negara and even took us to the boat jetty for a very cheap price. He is a star, giving such brilliant customer service.

Girlfriend and I stayed for two nights because of the close proximity to the national park. After check-in we went in the city of Jerantut but i wouldn't recommend that. It isn't a touristy place, and english isn't really spoken.
For food there is a Indian place right by the hotel in a tent, and the food is veryyy delicious. The best indian food we had in Malaysia :)
The hotel manager organized the trip to the national park for us, we got picked up in the morning and had i ride back, no worries.
The staff was also very friendly and always tried to help us.
