We stayed for two night with 2 check-in, thus 2 different rooms. The cheapest room has no window. Basically, a bit small, the mirror is placed at a cramped area of the room, next to the bathroom, not well sound treated as we can hears others from the next room. Room 1 was a bit smelly (undefined). Room 2 is... More

Stayed at this hotel a few times. Liked the location by the riverfront. Get a window room facing the river ; pay 10-15 ringgit extra but it's worth it for the views and less claustrophobic. Nice clean room, a bit small, mostly works fine. Wifi is free but variable strength. Hang around the waterfront at night; there's a cafe and... More

I had taken a room with city view. Room was small and clean. Aircond and hot shower were in good condition. Parking space nearby hotel was limited. I thought there would be less noise from the traffic as the hotel is located far from the main road but at midnight, it was really noisy with engine revving sound from the... More

No water bottle was given. The staff at reception was just lost for words when I was checking in. Room smelled funny. Was not aware that the room had no window when i was booking online. Stuffy and towel smells as well. TV channel was horrible. I am watching Thai channel as I write this.

I stayed here for one night after a trip to the Perhentian Islands. It was an internal room with no windows and was dirty. There were marks all down the walls, including makeup, mould in the bathroom, rusty bin, dirty mirrors and ants everywhere. The cups and saucers were dirty with tea stains on them although the receptionist did change... More

Average standard budget hotel situated in a good location - facing the river view and a night market. A bit noisy until 12pm with busking music from the nearby night market. Cleanliness just average especially the bathroom. Helpful staff with smiling faces. A nice transit place for your next trip or after travelling.

We were happy enough here for two nights. The hotel is well located to walk into the centre of Kota Bharu and its various attractions. The room is not large although the AC and hot water worked and an OK night's sleep was had. The food provided by the restaurant was adequate although it is necessary to get into breakfast... More
