“My first stay in Bayview Hotel is pretty pleasant. The rooms are fairly good sized and the price is not too expensive. The location is also quite conveniently as it is near to food and drinking places. The restaurant at the rooftop of this hotel is also a good place to visit for first time tourist to Penang. Gives you a good view of the Penang bay. Overall a very nice stay and will definitely consider staying here again next time.” – Wee A. (7.7/10)

This waterfront offers breathtaking views of the strait between mainland Pulau Pinang and mainland Penang best enjoyed whilst dining in the revolving restaurant that sits on top of this award-winning hotel.  Other recreational amenities include swimming pools, an outdoor hot tub and a gymnasium. If you’re looking to venture out, Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and participate in the tour where you’ll learn about the man himself, his ultra-luxurious mansion and the era whence he came before tucking in to a meal at the restaurant which serves fine Cantonese cuisine.

“I must say I’m quite satisfied with the hotel. It’s really unique with a Peranakan style design on the interior. You can never tell from the front door of the hotel. Room was clean and comfortable. Sufficiently furnished. However, it may not be convenient for family with old folks as there’s no lift to 2nd level. There’s a long flight of stairs if you’re allocated a room on level 2. Food was actually very nice but variety is limited. Serving was quite slow and they constantly ran out of cutlery. Parking is also very limited for those who drives.” – We N. (8.7/10)

Being a boutique hotel – a 4-star one at that – you can expect a visual treat. Some of the rooms in this hotel are very well-designed – some exuding traditional charm whilst others displaying modern aesthetics. If you’re a hungry traveler, worry not because the Banana Boutique Hotel is located in Lebuh Chulia where it is lined with great food outlets such as Chulia Street Night Hawker which serves awesome wanton noodles or if you fancy some famous Hainanese chicken you can swing by Kedai Kopi Thew Chik Cafe – and these are just some of the choices available within this vibrant location. This hotel also sits along the trail of whimsical and interesting street art that Georgetown is famous for.

“The Anggun has good character and feels inviting. it is a small establishment and feels safe. The location and facilities are good for the centre of KL as a tourist. All malls, attractions and food are within walking distance. Even China town is only 15 to 20min walk. There are some noise issues either from the traffic outside or from the early morning cleaning in the lobby and landings. But the staff are helpful and friendly. All the rooms have character as I stayed both in a standard and deluxe due staying extra night. The only difference is the size of room. All the room facilities were the same. Tv with English channels, wifi, safe, good toiletries, etc. I would stay again.” – John W. (8.3/10)

Character – this boutique hotel has tons of it. Inside out, this hotel is very well designed, emanating a sort of old-school charm accentuated by its abundance of earthy tones apparent on the walls and furniture. Rooms are cozy and spacious and breakfast is served on the restaurant on the rooftop terrace. Location-wise, Anggun Boutique Hotel is second to none. The famed Alor Food Street is located so close you can practically smell the thoroughfare on offer the moment you step out of your hotel. If you’re looking for some evening merrymaking, Changkat Bukit Bintang entertainment district and the many watering holes that line that place is just a stone’s throw away.

“Awesome. Accommodation, cleanliness and overall service standards exceptional. For a new hotel to do as well as they were is great testimony of their overall product offering and service. I found them absolutely flawless and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone seeking great hospitality on their Bali holiday. Whether food, laundry, housekeeping or front office, they went out of their way to please you. In short they seem to fully epitomise the boutique standards in the hospitality industry.” – Assis. C (9.3/10)

You know how boutique hotels are all about ambiance and thematic styling. Well Hotel Maison Boutique, located just 15 minutes walk away from Berjaya Times Square, is exactly that and then some, rooms have distinct themes to it from the whimsical Volkswagen theme (inclusive of a vintage Volskwagen body-kit retrofitted onto the bed), the chic 007 themed room to the ultra-futuristic themed room akin to those you might expect from the sets of science fiction films such as Star Wars or the Fifth Element.

This villa style accommodation is in the same vein as those you might find in Bali – right down to the fact that it is located right next to the beautiful stretch of beaches Langkawi is known for. 15 minutes walk is all it takes for you to soak in the beautiful atmosphere of Pantai Tengah or Pantai Cenang beach. Rooms are bathed in calmness with white dominating the interior accompanied with touches of lime green and light timber – very zen. That feeling of zen carries on outside with the pool looking clean and inviting whilst the outdoor lounge area has generous amounts of lounge chairs for you to just take a breather whilst snapping Instagram-worthy selfies.

We stayed many times whilst in Kuching and throughly enjoyed this hotel. The location was convenient for us as we were studying at Swinburne, may not be so convenient if you wish to be in the city but a cab will cost about 15-20RM. The rooms are modern and pristinely clean. The pool is one of the best I have seen at a hotel especially of this price. We recommended to many of our friends and they enjoyed it just as much.” – Georgia A. (9/10)

Hands-down, Citadnes Uplands Kuching is home to one of the best hotel swimming pool in town – an outdoor swimming pool lined with deck chairs accompanied by unsurpassed ambiance located in the upper floors of the hotel. Rooms are spacious and well equipped with even a kitchenette! You won’t be disappointed too upon stepping out of the hotel with one of the biggest malls in East Asia right at the doorstep – The Spring Shopping Mall. This is one of the best value hotel in all of Malaysia, definitely.

“I enjoyed staying here, above the hypermall so I could go shopping, find food, get a massage all within minutes of my room. The room had a comfortable bed, cable TV and also helpful staff. I recommend this hotel.” – Tara.D (7.7/10)

For those who put shopping above all else should make this their choice of stay when visiting Kota Kinabalu. The Grand Borneo Hotel is situated right above the largest mall in East Malaysia and also the whole of Borneo – 1Borneo Hypermall. Whilst this hotel is located quite a distance from the city center, this provides a much needed reprieve from all the hustle and bustle. Anyways the city centre is just a few minutes taxi ride away if you’re looking to swing by. The amenities in this hotel is not too shabby either with a sweet looking indoor pool, a fitness corner and even karaoke available for use in the hotel.

“Got to know about this hotel through my uncles who receommended it.Guess we made the right choice to stay here as I would consider it is still new. From the description, it is stated the room size is 30m2 which is SO TRUE. the room is spacious and my child had a good time running around in the room.we had a good view which is overlooking the Putatan village plus seaview from afar. eventhough our room rate did not include breakfast, we did try the in-room dining breakfast.It was quite nice and delicious.only that they did not provide all what is offered as the waitress mentioned I did not ask for it.so, my suggestion is just serve all what has been offered in the menu set as we are paying for all of it right? On Wifi,we were only provided with 2 days complimentary eventhough our stay was for 3 days. maybe you can provide better service to win people’s heart? Overall,unless you want to stay around Putatan then this hotel is highly recommended.if you want to go to city,you need cabs service or own car as it takes 15-20mins to reach town center from here.” – Fairuz Z. (9/10)

Like the entry before this, Soluxe Hotel Kota Kinabalu is also located above a shopping mall. This provides excellent access to food and retail outlets. Located in between the airport and the city center this hotel provides a strategic location to base yourself in while experiencing Sabah. Whilst there is barely anything to do in Putatan, the hotel provides a free shuttle service to the city center. This hotel is the perfect value  especially if you’re transiting.

“We arrived early but they did not have a room available for early check in, so no drama, we managed to check in at 3pm which is the correct time. Hotel has a good location, walkable distance of approx 10 min to jonker street. Breakfast was not a buffet but rather a good alacarte menu with big portions- we were filled! Hotel has a semi private open air carpark that seemed safe. We chose a junior suite, the jacuzzi outside was perfect, and shower pressures ran well. Enjoyed our stay!” – Nicolle S. (8/10)

Just 10 minutes away from Melaka’s most happening street, Jonker Street where the offerings of food, craft and wares is plenty and eclectic, lies The Sterling Boutique Hotel. Housed in a building which is very reminiscent of Melaka’s strong colonial past. Once inside however, it is a totally different story with the overall furnishing of the place exuding an ultra-luxe and modern feel. This hotel generally blends in well with the backdrop of culturally-rich old town Melaka.

“From the first time we arrived until we left, it was nothing short of an excellent experience when we stayed at Rucksack. With great service and friendly smiley presence from the owners and staffs, to having just a nice time chilling at the lounge area, sipping some hot coffee while the rain pours, it never fails to give a warm welcome throughout. Would definitely return the next time we’re in Malacca, regardless of the traffic needed to drive through to get to this chic slumber. Keep up the good job!” – Luqman R. (10/10)

The Rucksack Hotel exudes a very cool hipster vibe evident in the murals that line the walls and the eclectic nature of it’s very interesting games room which includes activities such as mahjong and foosball. There is also a small outdoor pool which is uncommon for a hotel of a boutique concept. Rooms are also tastefully designed in the minimalist school of thought. The icing on the cake is its close proximity to almost all that Melaka City Centre has to offer – Jonker Street, Malacca Sultanate Palace Museum, the famous Capitol Satay Celup and St Paul’s Hill to just name a few.
