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.

You can book the hotel at Booking.com but types of room offered there is limited. I booked directly with the hotel via its website as I wanted their executive room. 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..
