The riverview was nice although...the river itself wasn't a very desirable view. However, the beds are comfortable, very soft carpets and also spacious rooms. The downside, the reception for tv in the rooms are terrible. Came with a friends and we had a few rooms, and some had the same issue where the tv was only showing static without any... More

This recent renovated hotel has a better looking now than before. The view to the river is beautiful and the breakfast buffet is superb! The room is clean and the bed is comfy. Just the parking lot a bit disappointed as it is too narrow and limited. Overall a not bad hotel but still rooms to improve.

This was my second time at this hotel, and this time I had a superior room, with a separate sitting area and bedroom. I still found the air-conditioning to be rather strong, even with the fan set low. The bed was comfortable enough, but the pillows were not. The sitting area was reasonably large and comfortable, so it was quite... More

Recently renovated hotel. Appears nice. Parking space is poorly planned. Front desk staff was helpful and welcoming drinks were nice. Rooms are nice and tidy. Appreciate that housekeeping responded quickly on queries. the meals (breakfast, lunch and banquet dinners) were quite disappointing. Few waiter/waitresses were turning down every request by customer without even checking with their managers or chefs. The... More

The staff are relentlessly friendly and helpful. The location is excellent - great view. I particularly enjoyed the view of the spiral motor entrance to the building next door - I sent many happy minutes watching it. The pool is good, but you feel like you need to cover up (Kota Bharu is very conservative). The bed is lovely and... More

I spent one night only with my family and generally I don't recommend this hotel because the room is not clean. Although the staff were friendly but the level of cleanliness was very poor during my stay. With the price that I paid, it was not worth as the breakfast was too basic and the swimming pool was quite dirty... More

We were spending a night in Kota Bahru on our road trip across the east and north of Malaysia. This hotel is a mixed bag. While the lobby and the reception areas looks swanky, the rooms look old and dull. But the room was spacious and clean for most part, the toilet could do with some refurbishment. The food was...
