Excellent location at a budget price
Clean, comfortable, friendly hotel in a very convenient location. Close to beach, restaurants, food stands, and night markets.

Close to the beach
Good breakfast, free water. But no fridge or kettle, and the male staff members are rude and unhelpful. Walking distance to great restaurants.

Where do I begin, because I have no idea where this hotel gets 3+ rate. 1. Do not go to Battu Ferringhi. It's a terribly crowded place with bad beach next to a frequent road. 2. This EQ hotel does not feel like a hotel but a dorm. Located in ghetto. There was a large group of about 50 motorcycles parked on front of hotel with local kids. Very noisy all night long inside an outside of the hotel. 3. The wifi is only in the lobby and only works for few minutes. 4. Breakfast and bed no good.

Overall it is good. But have to go to the lobby for WiFi. And I can't get into it even so.
