Good value. Convenient location

Near the beach but no beach view. Still gotta walk a bit. Good value for money. Convenience stores, food stalls and bus stop within walking distance. Gets a bit quiet after dark.

1st, place was hard to find. 2nd, you're sleeping in a shoplot converted to rooms. 3rd, tried checking in at 3pm and nobody was around. Had to call the number at the door and waited about 10 mins for someone to show up. That person felt that checking-in wasn't her job. 4th, gave us the wrong room type (had asked for a suite but gotten a duplex. Tried changing but woman who thought this wasn't her job just shrugged her shoulders. 5th, walls was paper thin. Ringing phone at the reception can be heard from all rooms. The good ... room was nice and clean. No amenities though but for the price, it is OK. Windows cannot be opened and you wouldn't want to draw the curtains down as it faces the shop-lot corridor.

5/5 Excellent

Roomies Suites, Ferringhi Beach

Good-value room a hop away from Golden Sands Resort. We were travelling as a family with a small child.

Pros: New. Very spacious room, very tastefully designed.

this hotel is possibly the worst hotel i've ever stayed in...its basically in a rundown building on the 2nd floor with no checkin procedure..the escalators are rundown and not working...the rooms are so bad theres no windows...breakfast was being cooked in a dirty fry pan and how can you eat from that? i stayed one night and left...its a cheap hotel but for a few dollars more you can stay in a resort on the beach

Stayed 6 nights in Feb 2018
