This isn't exactly a new hotel. I remember it being in existence since the 1990s. The stay in May 2014 was my third or fourth stay here, and first in more than 14 years. Nothing much has changed. Check-in was quick, room was comfortable (I had the room looking south, so the view of Mount Jerai and the rice fields... More

Stayed here before & returned coz I thought it was still ok. However, this time around was so unpleasantly appalling. The sheets had stains. The toilet stank after we flushed. I think they have problems with the sewerage system. I complained to the front desk & asked to change the room. When I came back & asked about the new... More

Location is a major factor here (read other review to get details). Everything else is just average. Breakfast is not really great, so as swimming pool. Staff is ok, not really much on smile but attend your needs well. Room is ok, comfortable enough with average decoration. Again, location is great, breakfast is not.

Took the family back to visit the "kampong" where I was raised. We booked 2 rooms and requested for adjoining rooms directly with the hotel web-site. We did pay a higher price during April because of the school holiday and the Chinese's All Saints Days. The rooms were nice and clean and the twin single king beds were comfortable. The... More

Arrived at this hotel quite late in the evening. Counter check in is efficient, not much waiting. Located in town center, easy access to eatery and shopping area, near to the railway station. I got a deluxe room, quite clean but mattress is not comfortable at all, very noisy, just a turn in your sleep will give out loud noise.... More

This is the best located hotel in alor Setar. It is situated at the busiest street in Alor Setar. Just walk out and everything is there. Attached to it is UTC, the one-stop government departments where you can pay bills, renew passport, driving licence etc etc. The building is surrounded by shops of all kinds. Walk to the left is...

Stayed for 2 nights. The room had old furnitures and outdated decor. Breakfast was ok but not that delicious. Gym was not functional at all. Will think twice before going back. Disspointing that a hotel with the "holiday villa" franchise branding ends up this quality.

Travelling to the capital of Kedah.? Alor setar can be ventured by walking distance from holiday villa hotel.average rate for all rooms and varieties of foods in the hotel or surpling local cuisine at komplek pekan rabu nearby is a must

Well located hotel in the centre of town. Nearby are a small shopping mall, cheap goods and curios in Lorong Sempit, rows of textile shops in Jalan Langgar and the famous Pekan Rabu where u can find traditional Malay delicacies and dry sundries. All this is good enough to take the family down memory lane on life in Alor Setar;... More
