Book the family room. Very spacious and clean. The family room got 1 Queen Bed and 2 Single Bed. We also add 1 single bed and it only cost us RM 35 including breakfast. But it only got 1 toilet. The hotel is near to the river side and lots of nearby restaurant.

As a place to stay while in Kota Bharu on business the Ridel is fit for purpose. Checking in and out were both very quick and easy. My room on the 5th floor had a magnificent view of the river and adjacent Observation tower. The bath and bed linen was clean, the bed comfortable. The only drawback was no chair,... More

Basically, a bit small, the mirror is placed at a cramped area of the room, next to the bathroom, not well sound treated as we can hears others from the next room. Room 1 was a bit smelly (undefined). Room 2 is... More

Stayed at this hotel a few times. Liked the location by the riverfront. Get a window room facing the river ; pay 10-15 ringgit extra but it's worth it for the views and less claustrophobic. Nice clean room, a bit small, mostly works fine. Wifi is free but variable strength. Hang around the waterfront at night; there's a cafe and... More

No water bottle was given. The staff at reception was just lost for words when I was checking in. Room smelled funny. Was not aware that the room had no window when i was booking online. Stuffy and towel smells as well. TV channel was horrible. I am watching Thai channel as I write this.
