4 star hotel

2 star hotel
This simple hotel offers good value for the price, and is about the only real budget option here. A good bet if you’re counting the pennies.
More atmosphere than the other hotels in town thanks to its direct riverfront position and lots of natural light in the lobby areas. Opt for a standard executive to get a balcony and uninterrupted river view...
All rooms here (ask for a river view) are spacious and clean, with large bathrooms and all the mod-cons. Central location, ample Malay-style breakfast and considerate staff make this a great choice.
Bright clean rooms here are a big step-up from the backpacker oriented places. Service is friendly.

This is the place to stay if you don’t need frills or atmosphere, and want to be in the middle of all the action in Tanah Rata. Premier rooms are vast, while standard rooms don’t have windows...
