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

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

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.
