"we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here (3 nights). most westerners seem to quickly pass through kota bharu on the way to the perhentians, but we feel it is well worth staying a couple of nights at least. we found the people to be generally friendly & accommodating. our room was clean & comfortable with a man-size bath & shower. even room service meals were cheap & delicious. the staff were very friendly & prompt in rectifying any minor problems. their english was a little limited at times but certainly much better than our bahasa. we paid approx. us$230 for 3 nights in a premier room with a quality buffet breakfast included. excellent value! kota bharu is a hidden gem (imho) - easy to walk around, vibrant markets, interesting history & culture, great food & retail if desired."

"Very new hotel so the plus points were that the rooms, furnishings, sheets etc were all relatively new/ used only a few times. Check in was fast. We weren’t aware kelantan state charged rm2 tourist tax per room but was well explained by the front desk staff. Located next to orange mall which Has some fast food options. Cons: 1. location - about 5-10mins drive from Kota Bharu town. 2. Ongoing construction, so some areas still dusty. 3. Water pooling in the shower. Not sure wether it was just a problem in our rooms. However, we didn’t have time to complain and it didn’t bother us so much. 4. Breakfast: very limited choice But overall it was a good stay for our family of four. "

"An old beauty - one of the earliest hotels in Kota Bharu has been refurbished. With new modern design, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. However, there are a few rooms for improvements: 1. Bathrooms are too small. A person has to know how to squeeze oneself when using the bathroom 2. Some of the rooms are quite new, even, the contol dashboard for room amenities (lighting, TV and etc) are not properly connected and haywire 3. Food during breakfast are abundant. However, has to upgrade the seating area a little bit more as people might feel a little claustrophobic "

"Book thru agoda is cheaper than walks in. Pls do not adds on for breakfast. Breakfast was not the buffet just an ala cart with white rice + ayam masak merah + orange juice. (Not worth adds on RM40 for breakfast). Overall stay is went smooth and good. Facilities such as pool, gym, cafe, not avalable due to MCO 2.0. Indoor parking very limited. I stayed in room 804. The aircond timer will auto off after 90 minutes. I have to wakes up in midnites to on the aircond for every 1 and half hour. Aircond was centralised control i/o remote control. The bed frame was dusty. Pls get service manager to supervise on this. Towel was new and clean + face towel. Definitely will stay again if going to Kota Bharu. "

"Situated in the middle of Kota Bharu’s food heaven. Pasar Siti Khadijah is about 5mins walk and so is Ulam Cikgu and Din Tokyo. The place is a studio apartment with one queen bed and one single bed. Size wise, it’s definitely more spacious than hotel’s room around this price. Since this is a serviced apartment, no breakfast is served but it’s not a big deal when the area is surrounded by numerous food joints. I strongly recommend this place. Btw, the bus station is about 5 min walk from this place. "

"This is my 5th trip to Kota Bharu. We definately will stay in Renaissance Hotel because of the strategic location. The hotel is near to the town especially Pasar Khadijah and quite close to Pantai Cahaya Bulan (PCB). It will take us about 20 minutes drive to get to the beach without heavy traffic. My family especially my hubby love to be in Kota Bharu because of the marvelous foods that we can find over there. We like to be in PCB where we can eat "Fresh Deep fried Fish(ikan goreng tepung), squid, prawn and etc.." with colek...Yummy...!!Yummy!! while kids will enjoy playing kites by the beach..."

"Hotel hard to find although it was in a rather central location near the hospital. Plus point is there are some parking spaces. Otherwise, the hotel is expensive for what it has to offer. Air con was so noisy, i had to turn it off in order to sleep. There were people shouting in the middle of the night. The hotel badly needs some renovation. "
