Malaysia has well over a thousand hotels and resorts, and perhaps even more guesthouses and lodges. First time visitors to Malaysia may find it an overwhelming experience to select the right hotel. Luckily over the years many travelers have shared their experiences. By far the biggest place to check those experiences is at TripAdvisor. Though this website is definitely worth visiting during your search for the best hotel, you have to keep in mind that people that had bad experiences are more inclined to express their opinions in a review than people that had the time of their life. Also, in-between hotels that are not bad but also not astonishing are not always reviewed; in these cases there is simply not that much to review.
