Langkawi Baron Hotel
Category: Budget/ Mid Range, Location: Kuah
This hotel belongs to the Baron Group which also owns several other properties in Langkawi. The best part of the hotel is its location... close proximity to the Night Market
which sets up on every Wednesday and Saturday in Kuah town, and also it's quite near the shopping areas as well as many restaurants.

There is also an onsite conference/ meeting room making this hotel attractive for office functions and business travelers. The hotel has elevator.
Standard Twin Bedded Room
Note that the check in time is 3pm (unlike most other hotels in the island where it is 2pm) and the check out time is 12noon.
My overall opinion
The hotel certainly needs some maintenance boost as cleanliness is an ongoing issue. Sometimes the bathrooms are not properly cleaned or you can notice a layer of dust on the bedside tables. Air conditioners may not be cooling enough and the rooms can feel warm even at the middle of a night. Even the water pressure in some rooms are quite low to take a comfortable shower.
The breakfast spread at the in-house restaurant is quite poor. So don't go for breakfast with great expectations.
Pillows in most rooms are not quite comfortable and you need to pay for extra pillows.
Staff are overall nice and cooperative.
The location is a big plus being close to shops, eateries, night market, convenience store etc which are all within easy walking distance from the hotel.
Depending on bookings and availability, you can defer your check out time by several hours by paying a nominal hourly charge for the extra hours beyond 12noon. So if your return flight is in the evening, then you can ask to keep your room for few extra hours at a nominal charge.
Room tariff is quite low. So overall a good value for money if you are looking to spend couple of nights in Kuah in a basic hotel while staying in a good central location.
