I was on a short stay in Kuantan to attend a sports related meeting thus this hotel was selected by the secretary and at first I was under the impression that this is a 100% non-smoking hotel. It turns out that I read the reviews for another hotel so upon checking in my room on the 6th floor, an ashtray and a box of matches were on a small table near the comfy sofa chair. This hotel is currently going extensive refurbishment from the 7th until 9th floor but I did not hear any noise as I checked out early the next day. The room is very large, clean and with comfortable lighting. An electric pot with complimentary 3-in-1 tea and nescafe were provided along a fridge. Two bottles of drinking water. The standing shower has a rain shower which was wonderful. There were 2 sets of toothbrush/toothpaste alongside shower and shampoo in a small bottle. The water flush worked well. The wifi was moderately okay yet the sat tv reception was very bad so hopefully this will be worked out well in the near future. The ac was very cold although I switched it to low then switched it off due to the rain. My room was facing the mosque and there were a lot of illegal race happening across the street thus ruining my sleep so get the river view room next time as a reminder. The breakfast was very filling and this hotel has a 100% fully certified certificate from the Islamic Comm of Pahang and even a former bar on the area near the lobby has been closed down.The staff especially Zahra was informative and free newspapers can be had at the lobby. Kuantan is a foodie paradise and you can travel anywhere from this hotel without a glitch. In conclusion, apart from the poor tv reception, I am very happy and hope to return back in the near future.
