Nice view from the Hotel onto the river-side during morning or night. Good diner time with river-side view but hey, its not in the hotel cafe but the restaurants beside the hotel. Wanna have People-Watching activity?try in the morning and evening. Some people do jog on the alley.

Took them more than 24 hours to reply but that was the only issue I faced. Located next to the Tambatan Diraja, Ridel Hotel is a good place for family.... More

Stayed here after a trawl through reviews in this town.. This place seemed half decent. On arrival the sheets were dirty, and it was evident someone had been in the room before as it had not been cleaned properly. Our room had an infestation of ants in it.. Climbing up the wall..
