“Convenient but mediocre place to stay”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The hotel is right opposite the bus stand and near the taxi stand, close to shopping, food, etc. The rooms are smelly and the carpeting is old. The receptionist did allow us to look at some more rooms and choose. There was absolutely no ventilation in these rooms. There was hot water. Barely OK place to stay (we paid RM85).

Room Tip: Take a look at the room first before paying, and check for smells and ventilation.

In April 2013, me and my family go to Perhentian Island and on our last day in Kelantan, we decided to stay at Suria Hotel Kota Bharu.

We are told that the room will be ready or we can check in after 12.30pm. However, after 2.30pm, one of the room I have book ( I book 2 family room ) is not ready till now. So, I am asking her many times and what she did only to say " it was not ready, please wait" with a very rude manners. Hello! We are your customers and it is your fault that we have to wait sooooo long till we get our room. It is fair to us? She dont even says sorry to us. And the worst thing we already pay!

When the room ready, we go to the room and very dissappointed because the room was very smelly, not very clean, the toilet also look very old and the aircon also not that cold.. we pay RM130 per room and it was not cheap! Seriuosly, I dont suggest everyone to go to this hotel. Even it is a budget hotel but they must maintain a clean room at least. But, the receptionist really need to do something on her BAD ATTITUDE.

Lucky, we dont even stay one night at here. We go to the airport at 8pm and I think that's the last time I go to Kota Bharu.

Thanks.

It is just across the road from the main bus station.The taxi stand, department & grocery stores, pharmacy, and Pasar Siti Khadijah(fruits, sweets & cakes, wet market on ground floor; textiles, food stalls on upper floors) are a few minutes' walking distance away. There are eating stalls and restaurants around the hotel, while the food court nearby is open 24 hrs a day.
Our superior room with 2 single beds became too congested when we added an extra mattress. There was neither window nor ventilation for the clean bathroom.

Room Tip: Ask for room with windows

stayed one night each on the way to/from Perhentian. Semi suite. Toilet wont flush properly. The elevator smells. And noise from the traffic junction. Then there was road repair between 3:30 - 4:00 infront of Parkson.
We have now found out how to get to Perhentian without stop in Kota Bharu. Save time, money and sleepless nights.
