This hotel is strategically located at the waterfront. The hotel may be a little dated & old but it's location makes up for it. Ask for high floors with a river view. Delicious hotel buffet breakfast with a wide variety & a stall that makes egg freshly for you. Topspot seafood, Chinese eateries (local kopitiam), Chinese museum, souvenir shops, etc... More

Harbour View is an average hotel at slightly above average prices. Rooms are tired and in need of some TLC. The smoking rooms (which appear to be the majority) smell and need airing. The breakfast buffet is chaotic, with poor choice. However, it is located well for tourists in front of the river, a short walk to most things you... More

Very comfortable hotel with good views over the river. Large room and bathroom and staff friendly and efficient. Great location, really clean. Just a shame breakfast wasn't included in the rate I booked.

The location of the hotel is awesome as it is just at the centre of the town so it is within walking distance to the merdeka mall and food stalls. Upon check in, the staff are very friendly and kind enough for us to view the room before we check in (we wanted a non smoking but they only had... More

Don't judge this hotel from the lobby or restaurant because you may think that the hotel is old-designed. Judge it from the comportable and great room and also the great breakfast. Don't worry about the place forr shopping it"s so close.

We chose this hotel due to location. On the one side, you have the Main Bazaar, Indian Street, Chinatown. On the front you get the waterfront. On the other side, you get access to great food and shopping malls. it cannot get better. Lots of food choices within 2 minutes of walking too. Unlike other reviews, we found wifi to... More

The hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of the cities attractions. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable, however, they are tired looking and in need of updating; the lighting is terrible unless you want the soft romantic feel. Wifi is a no-go in the rooms, we had to go to the lobby to use it... More
