No water bottle was given. The staff at reception was just lost for words when I was checking in. Room smelled funny. Was not aware that the room had no window when i was booking online. Stuffy and towel smells as well. TV channel was horrible. I am watching Thai channel as I write this.

I stayed here for one night after a trip to the Perhentian Islands. It was an internal room with no windows and was dirty. There were marks all down the walls, including makeup, mould in the bathroom, rusty bin, dirty mirrors and ants everywhere. The cups and saucers were dirty with tea stains on them although the receptionist did change... More

Average standard budget hotel situated in a good location - facing the river view and a night market. A bit noisy until 12pm with busking music from the nearby night market. Cleanliness just average especially the bathroom. Helpful staff with smiling faces. A nice transit place for your next trip or after travelling.

We were happy enough here for two nights. The hotel is well located to walk into the centre of Kota Bharu and its various attractions. The room is not large although the AC and hot water worked and an OK night's sleep was had. The food provided by the restaurant was adequate although it is necessary to get into breakfast... More

Conveniently located, this budget hotel has all the basic needs provided, including ironing area on every floor. The rooms are quite small, but clean and comfortable. The aircond works nicely although the showers need repair. Breakfast is so so, but not to worry there are plenty of restaurants and food stalls nearby, some serve really delicious Kelantan food like "nasi... More

We stayed one night here as a stopover between the Perhentians and Singapore. Pro: Quite cheap Enough spacious room Hot shower Staff remembered that we thought about getting a taxi for the next day and as we forgot to get back to the reception to tell at what time we'd need it, they called us at our room and asked...

This is one of the 2 hotels in Kota Bharu city center that you can stay at if you wish to have a good view of Kelantan River (the other one is the much more expensive Grand Riverview). It is smacked right next to the Tambatan Diraja (Royal Jetty?) which is a wonderful structure to behold, especially the tower. The... More
