Stayed there for a course over the weekend, but brought along family. Check in took a while, but they were sensitive enough and apologetic. Refreshments were given. Rooms were clean, with WIFI connections. Next to the hotel is a shopping mall. So, easy access if you want to quickly get some snacks while enjoying your movie in the room. Buffet... More

20 storeys high - distant views over the town, the top two floors for 'Club' members. Being high meant being further from the noise of the busy street. Additional fee gave you 'high tea' in the club lounge (a running buffet style Asian/European mix and as many teas or coffees as you wished!) Outdoor pool I think was on 8th... More

I stayed here for 1 night during my trip. The Renaissance is Kota Bahru's only 5 star hotel but to be honest I would say that is generous and 3/4 stars would be more appropriate. It is the detail that can make a difference, the sheets on the bed were thin, the towels in the bathroom were like paper, if... More

This is the best hotel in Kota Bharu but it comes at a cost. The rooms are massive and staff very helpful. You can walk to the main town but roads busy and a little dangerous. A good spa and pool to relax at after a long day walking round the town.

I had a comfortable days staying in this hotel. Good services standard. Easily booked via hotel website. Next to shopping mall makes me easier to buy anything in need. My children enjoyed the stay, big cosy room. The bad thing was the traffic jam especially on weekend or peak hours

This is the best hotel in kota bharu but expect 5 star service from this part of the city but you have a great bed for sleeping. There is also a convenient shopping centre at the ground floor. Generally staff are friendly but service is rather slow and general maintenance need improvement.

If price is not a factor, this hotel is the best in Kota Bahru. Great reception and nice room. Although old-skool in design, it still looks good. I have 6 pillows on a bed. What else can you ask more?

We were once again upgraded to a suite with an excellent view and first class facilities. A king size soft bed made sure our sleep quality was great.
