Grand Riverview Hotel
Kota Bharu City Centre,Kota Bharu - View on map
"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."

H Elite Design Hotel
Wakaf Che Yeh,Kota Bharu - View on map
"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. "

The Grand Renai
Kota Bharu City Centre,Kota Bharu - View on map
"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..."

Perdana Kota Bharu
Kota Bharu City Centre,Kota Bharu - View on map
"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 "

ibis Styles Kota Bharu
Kota Bharu City Centre,Kota Bharu - View on map
"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. "

Crystal Lodge
Kota Bharu City Centre,Kota Bharu - View on map
"I took my family to Kota Bharu on the 11 November and we decided to stay at the hotel after seeing the good review of the hotel.Initially I found it difficult to go to the hotel but after asking around I managed to find it.Since then, I had no difficulties moving around as the hotel is strategically located and is near to all the places of interest.The room is clean, spacious and nice but the toilet is a bit too small and cram.There is no window in my room and it is a death trap if there is a fire.Morever the room is too near and there is no ledge for the adjoining room.My neighbour was very noisy and the smoke was trapped in between the corridor making the place very smelly.The hotel management should put a sign that no smoking is allowed in the rooms and my neighbouts were banging the wall eventhough it was past midnight.Anyway we had a nice stay except for these few reasons above."

"It was a short stay, hotel in Kota Bharu are more expensive to compare to the neighbouring Terengganu, this hotel is one of the value for money hotel. The room was spacious and there was a stall that is open 24hours in front of the hotel, eating out at night is not a big problem. During daytime, there were many shops and restaurants around this area. I would definitely come back."

Kb Street Boutique Hotel
Kota Bharu City Centre,Kota Bharu - View on map
"Best location in Kota Bharu as located in the heart of the city, value for money, clean and simple room. Got everything we need except hair dryer. There are 2 things need to be improved, the curtain should change to thick or dark curtain as the street light will penetrate during night. And the sound of birds was challenging your inner peace during sleepy night. If these two can be solved, i definitely would recommend to stay here."
