I started to check-in this Hotel since it first open-ceremony day when I and family checked out from Camp Permai for a vacation. Since then, I come to like this hotel due to the best location with respect to shopping, foods and sight seeing. Less than 5 minute walk to the water front where you can enjoy a peaceful and...

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.
