StarCity Hotel Alor Setar
Ranked #10 of 24 Hotels in Alor Setar
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Its a clean and nice place. Good rooms. bathroom missing knobs and curtain etc..
we travelled during Nov. Deepavali holidays without prior booking and a driver who took us after long bus travel from SIN-JB-KL to Aloestar.
Impressed by rooms and services. B/F was OK. Enjoyed by Kids & us.
Staff were Courteous. Tariff very reasonable- 170 Ringhet/-per night with B/F.
Highly reccomended for anyone.
There is food court near to it and also connectivity to Kolakatta for boat trip to Lankhawi is fine as well.
Overall we liked it compared to the one we stayed at Lankhawi.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms are better...Views not very exotic anyway..

So it took some time for them to get us checked in as they couldn't find our reservation. But the staffs were very polite, professional n apologetic, something quite rare from small hotel like these.

The room was nonetheless great, clean n spacious enough. We had a really good night rest. Breakfast was good. We called for a cab in the morning n we didn't had to wait too long.

It was the good stay.

This is a last minute business trip and both my wife and i made reservation the very day we want to check in. We had to check in during midnight and stay only for 1 night.

We reached the hotel at midnight. There were some car parks behind the hotels and some at the lower ground. It's plenty of space so we parked our car at the lower ground and walked up the stairs. The receptionists helped us checked in, and even allow us to checked out at 2pm the next day.

The room is average for the amount we've paid. There things i like and things i don't. The first thing i notice walking into the room was strange odour coming out from the toilet although it looks clean. Next is mosquitoes. There are a lot of mosquitoes in the room and we found a note saying the hotel faced challenge dealing with them. They offered mosquito vapes so we had the reception sent to us. It helped a great deal!

The room is spacious and with good view of Alor Setar. The bed is just nice. Other than that, the furniture are just classic. The food at The Paddy Cafe was ok. They have egg station, some cereal, fruits, bread for toast, juice, tea and coffee, nasi lemak, fried rice vermicelli, spring roll, congee, etc. Overall it's an average stay. The hotel need to get rid of the mosquitoes and the strange odour in the room.

Room Tip: Deluxe is a good room for 2. Remember to get mosquito vapes and also ask them for a room that has no...

I was told Starcity is one of the best hotels in Alor Setar but I beg to differ. I stayed once and I wasn't happy at all. Over-rated hotel with dire need of better furniture. It is about time the hotel changes the TV, floor carpets as there are ugly stains and remove molds on the bathrooms walls. The only plus point is the fact that the hotel is walking distance to Chinese hawker places. Pls buckle up as budget hotels have better furniture than your hotel.

The hotel is quite new and still maintains it's new look. Friendly services from staffs. Ample car park for guests. Located a short distance from the Alor Setar Tower a famous landmark of the city and the main highway running through the city.

This hotel is located centrally, as there are a lot of chinese restaurants / eateries around the area. Check in was smooth, got a room on the 4th floor,hotel need to look into the Wifi signal, as it was unstable, and I need to go to wardbrobe area to get the signal. We had lunch at their coffee house - PADDY if I am not mistaken - chicken rice and the fried sardine bread, very good and all compliments to the chef. Overall all are great, and I will return to stay here if I come to Alor Setar again.

Being a regular traveller to Alor Setar, I had stayed in few hotels before I found Star City Hotel. Frankly, I didn't expect much from a quiet town like Alor Setar. My previous experience with few hotels in Alor Setar was a nightmare.

I stayed at Star City for few times. It is located near to Sentosa. The lobby looks good, carpark area big, room is spacious, toilet is clean. Overall this hotel is well maintained.

The hotel staffs are friendly and most of them can speak good English.

The breakfast served is so so but for the price you are paying, I do not make much comment on it.

There is a hawker street (mostly Chinese food) near to this hotel. You can find most of the local delights here. Price is cheap and is quite crowded at night.

Star City Hotel is always my 1st choice whenever I visit Alor Setar.
