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...

I am amazed how nice this hotel is. It's beside the river and the quite a convenient location. My room was nice and simple . The breakfast spread was good too. Value for money especially the pastry and the egg section. The staff are equally helpful for anything needed. A great short stay

I stayed here shortly after the town was hit by floods, but I understand the hotel was spared. My first impression of the room was good - fairly spacious, with a new carpet. The decor was a little Spartan. In particular, there was only one armchair. I also found that the dial for adjusting the air conditioner temperature was stuck.... More

Stayed there just for 1 night. Took the river view room. But the Kelantan river was very muddy.. So it was not a real nice view. Took some time to find the centralised light switches.. Cos they were all located next to the bed. They got some food stuff and canned drinks in the minibar and they were free. Food... More

Spent a night throughout weekends. The room rate was definitely selling at a 5-star rate, however, the decoration of the room is not as new as expected to be since it was being advertised as newly refurbished. Icing on top of the cake was when we entered the room, a weird mouldy smell was detected. It was NOT during peak... More
