Very disappointed with the hotel facilities. The room looks old and worn, toilet bowl has an ugly ring around it at water level. No hand or face towels. Swimming pool water doesn't look clean, tiles in and around it not well maintained. Buffet breakfast was also disappointing, not much choice and lacking in presentation & taste. Ridiculously small parking garage... More

My second time stayed in this hotel. On the bank of Kelantan river, the view from higher floor will be great. With reasonable price, I got big & clean room. The restaurant offer variety of breakfast local food. Just walking distance from big masjid, shopping areas & local cheap restaurant.

Had my convocation at the hotel, the hotel lobby is overall grand but a bit hot and stuffy maybe due to the amount of graduates and family members that waiting in the lobby. The swimming pool is clean.

A great hotel with beautiful outside appearance. The room is spacious, great facilities and the breakfast was awesome. Suggestion: Maybe can keep up the maintenance inside the hotel itself especially along the corridors to hotel rooms, looks a bit dirty and old. Overall, the hotel is good.

Never heard of this hotel before and I thought my daughter had booked us on a trip to Kota Bahru and stay in a budget hotel or a home stay. Nevertheless, Grand Riverview Hotel Kota Bahru is not bad at all. The room I stayed was spacious and clean. The hotel entrance & lobby looks renovated and modern. We did... More

I felt that I was cheated. The room shows in the website (Hotels.com) looks new with red carpet and renovated. New furniture, including bed. In fact the the room given to me was old and smelly room. Changing room near the pool is permanently closed, you have to change your clothes in the toilet which is not convenient at all.... More

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.
