we booked for two nights there during the Hari Raya festive period and opted for Superior room since we shall not be spending much time in the room - just a place to put our bags and for night sleep. I think the price was slightly on the high side (RM148, if I can remember this right) compared to other... More

Based on the price paid and the room and food, it should have been around RM80 instead of RM120++ a night. Although the staff tried to answer all our questions, they were not so accurate. Maybe also because of the language barrier. The breakfast was a shame. The room was also too small.

Firstly, we have to admit it was a big mistake to spend one night in Kuala Terengganu on our way to the Perhentian Islands. This city is in still the pre-history of tourism,so if possible try to avoid it and get an early flight and arrive in the islands on the same day. The Ming Star Hotel is simply not... More

The Ming Star is now getting a little derelict due to its age. Although the hotel is well situated near the waterfront, there is no reason to stay in it since the same owner has opened the Ming Paragon next door. The prices of the two hotels are not too different, but the Paragon has far superior facilities (like a... More

We booked this hotel through Agoda, it was the worst hotel we have stayed in in one month of travelleing in Malaysia. The toilet was blocked, the window had a wooden shutter instead of a curtain and when we opened it there was so much dirty rubbish outside the window. The room and bed were dirty, linen not changed and... More

A very nice hotel and great value for the price. The location was good, near some nice restaurants and the waterfront. The room was probably a bit on the small side, but the bathroom was large and clean. The reception staff were friendly and helpful.

Good decent room with hard mattress. First time sleeping on a hard mattress, but manage to have some good night sleeps only to wake up once for toilet break. The toilet has a sliding door shower screen to ensure dry toilet when doing your business. I like strong water pressure coming from the shower and the hot water is just... More

I stayed in a Mingstar hotel 2 nights, but that was more than enough. Hotel is average maintained, standard rooms are tiny and noisy. I heard all the time the bell of the elevator and noise from the traffic from the nearby street. Basically you get what you pay. The only thing that was good is quite large bathroom almost... More
