Hotel staff were very smiling and accomodating, and airport pickup was cheap and efficient. Room very spacious. But how this hotel can have a 3,5 star rating on hotels.com is incomprehensible. The carpet in the room is dingy and very strange to walk on. The light behind the bed would not stop flickering. The sheets appeared moist when I went... More

GRV Hotel would have to be one of the best hotels in Kota Bharu. I had the pleasure of staying there with my friend in May 2016 and really glad we chose this hotel. Although GRV is a long established hotel, and you can see a little bit of wear and tear here and there, I think the positives far... More

I stayed in this hotel a week ago and it was a good experience. The staff were polite and very helpful, the room was clean and location was excellent! Would stay there again. It was very near many tourist sites and one could do the town's main tourist spots and get a good breakfast / lunch while staying here.

Breakfast good but could be improved. Coffee very thick and very sugary. Too sweet to my taste but no alternative was available. Dinner choice is basic and no alcool (beer or... More

Perched right at the riverbank, this hotel offers an amazing view and the room was amazingly comfortable. Washroom was clean and spectacular, and the service from the staff was quick and proper. This would be my go-to hotel if I ever visit Terengganu again in the future. The dining area at the lobby level might get a little too crowded... More
