Tahan Guest House

Bright, cheery and next to the mosque

What we say: 4 stars

This is our pick of a very mediocre bunch of hotels and homestays in Kuala Tahan. It's set right beside the main mosque, a short five- to 10-minute stroll from where the bus stops. A very cute, vividly painted two-storey house, Tahan Guest House feels and looks like a far more playful joint than it really is. Rooms are functional, with squat, cold water bathrooms and all have either a front- or rear-facing balcony. The paint scheme is pretty, but with no food on offer and no bedding (save a bottom sheet), it is a tad overpriced for the standard. It feels like it was once a far more popular place than it is today but is difficult to see where the crowds have gone. If you're travelling with kids, Tahan is a good option for the big lawn area they can run wild on. As it is right beside the mosque, you'll have a nice early start to the day. If you're looking for something similar, but away from the mosque, keep walking for another 10 minutes to reach Durian Chalet, which has chalets and rooms at a similar price level, also in a garden setting but at the bottom of a bit of a valley. Budgeteers will want to stick with a dorm bed in Rippi or Liana close to the river.
