Last Saturday, MrJocko have to go to Gong Badak, Kuala Terengganu for a business trip. Since it’s a long journey and I drive my own car, I asked my wife and my kids to join the short business trip. For the accommodation in Gong Badak, we stayed Tawaquf Inn, a Budget Hotels. Due to this budget hotel has been fully booked and only had one room, we have to choose the package Family Room.
Tawaquf Inn is located about 9.6 KM from the city of Kuala Terengganu. About 10 minutes for a conventional vehicle. 18-room budget hotel concept and has four categories of rooms in a Single Room, Double Room Single Room, Queen Room, Family Room.
Tawaquff Inn has two (2) seminar hall which can accommodate 50 people each time, and each room complete with Astro, aircond, and each level has wifi facilities. Tawaquf restaurant is also located in the building operational and ready to receive guests for individual or group.
Tawaquf Inn is a hotel owned by Bumiputera Muslim and only 5 minutes from the Kuala Terengganu Airport. It’s location facing the Gong Badak Sports Complex.
Tawaquf Inn room rates packages starting from RM78 and a Family Room with 2 Queen Size bed that can accommodate 4 adults comfortably with the price of RM160 package 2 days 1 night. For more information, please call 09-6627 377.
Overall, the Tawaquff Inn location is close to Tabung Haji Hotel and airport. 3 storey shop house building at variable into bujet hotel and it was still new. Mattresses and pillows are very comfortable and convenient accommodations include breakfast. Parking is free.
However, with the price of RM78 package for single bed room to room Family Room with 2 queen beds can be quite expensive because of the Gong Badak arguably still in the village or small town area.
I think most of the hotel owner or homestay owner here might take advantage as there are many Universities, Colleges and airports, while proper in Gong Badak lower cost of living compared to Kuala Lumpur.
What I like:
1- Hotel is new and clean
2- Ease breakfast, parking and Wi-Free
3- Late Check-up
What I do not like:
1- The room is quite expensive when compared with locations
