“Huge comfy room at very affordabale price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

My first time visiting Alor Setar, and this hotel is a pleasant surprise indeed. Room was huge (almost the size of a decent apartment) with equally big bathroom. I paid less than RM90 for the room which has everything working in order. Eateries were just around the corner, although we drove near the stadium to have our dinner. The unique thing about this hotel is I believe it belongs to or are managed by the Alor Setar Recreational Club (which is what I believe ASRC stands for), and the hotel has a huge adjacent swimming pool which the guests can use. Despite lack of facilities, it provides for a safe, quiet and comforting stay. Parking may be limited, and the road is narrow, but other than that, I did not see much to complain about. Good value for money.

Room Tip: If you like spacious room, the bigger the better, as the price is cheap.

I was here with other 4 people. We stayed for 1 night in 2 family rooms. Very easy to find the hotel as it is located somewhere near Menara Alor Setar. The room were spacious, the toilet was clean, the beds were ok, if you are not the fussy type. However, the air-cond in my room was so noisy! I told the receptionist on duty but there was nothing he can do. He can't even change our room even though there are plenty rooms available at that time. So my mom and I have to sleep with that annoying noisy sound all night. It was really disappointing. I have also requested for an iron, but unfortunately the receptionist told me that the iron was not working, and the boss went for holiday. So, there's nothing he can do. Overall, this hotel is an OKAY hotel with cheap price and spacious room. It is a basic hotel, with public swimming pool behind it. At least my 5 years old niece enjoy her stay here, just because of the swimming pool.

Room Tip: When you got your room, please make sure all the windows are close tight before night time coz you d...

I was here with my family for 2 nights and we booked 2 deluxe room for RM300. The rooms were surprisingly big (as I expected smalls room for RM75/night) and clean. It is simply a basic hotel, offers wifi facility and it has swimming pool too! Good for kids..

Eateries are nearby, walking distance - you must try Nasi Lemak Royal and 'roti jala' at the stadium for your breakfast.

Tourist attractions are nearby too - Masjid Zahir, Menara Alor Setar, Balai Nobat, Balai Besar, the State Art Gallery, Royal Museum.. All are in walking distance from ASRC

For the price I paid for the room, i was expecting something small and compact. But when i actually walked into the room was surprised by the sheer size of the room. Plenty of space to move around int he room. Two comfortable sofas to sit, a huge cupboard. The bathroom is equally big. Has all the modern amenities a hotel can have. The hotel is also located in a very strategic location from where most of the attractions of Alor Setar and be visited on foot. I was very happy with my stay here.

This is a hotel used mostly by local business people. It has large, comfortable clean rooms. No frills, no elevators just pretty good value for money. Staff are friendly, the hotel is pretty central to the CBD and food courts. Most sights can be reached on foot so hotel is ideal for a short stop over. There is a swimming pool available free to guests but it is a public pool.

Room is big and very clean. Very Good price..You will not regret if you stay here..Very comfortable to stay. Even it is a budget hotel, the accomodation such as a swimming pool are available if we compare with other 3 stars hotel such as Starcity Hotel, Sentosa Regency and The Regency they don't have a swimming pool. Located 20 minutes from Alor Setar Airport and 5 minute to Alor Setar City..

Room Tip: Get the nice anf comfort bed..

I don't think you can beat the price of RM55 for a night. My bus arrived very

Pros:
+ Cheap
+ Drinking water outside of 2nd floor.
+ Near the State Museum (which unfortunately is not taken care of) and Alor Setar Tower
+ Reasonably comfortable room
+ Free Wi-fi (ask from counter)

Cons:
- Quite a distance away from main sights. It's walkable but it's a lot of walking

Tip:
There are buses to the long distance bus terminal across the road. Only RM1, compared with RM12 cab ride
At the block of shop down the road, the kopitiam serves good Chinese food.
