“Simple yet complete”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Stayed here for 1 night in August 2014, during Hari Raya break in Standard Room with 1 queen bed. The hotel located in the centre of KB town, easily accessible to shops, restaurants and interesting places to visit. Room located at level 2, with small window facing the adjacent building. The room is small with old furniture. Floor is not carpeted. Only 1 power socket available. Room is complete with LCD TV, bottled mineral water, coffee & tea, iron, iron board, 2 extra pillow, sejadah (prayer mat), hair dryer and toiletries. Buffet breakfast was good with variety of foods, Malaysian and western. WiFi connectivity in room is very fast!

An average hotel with average facilities. Breakfast was OK but nothing special. We moved rooms because in the first room the toilet was broken. Why wasn't it fixed when the room was prepped for next customers? The room we were moved to had no windows to the outside world, but had one into the corridor, a bit of an odd arrangement, but as we were only staying one night, it didn't really matter, plus we didn't need to worry about black-out curtains. We just needed somewhere to shower and have a good nights sleep. The staff were courteous enough but their English wasn't brilliant and it wasn't too easy to make ourselves understood, although we got there in the end.

Well, carpet definitely looks worn out. Didn't like that, had to bring it up.
And now, the like parts. Rooms had everything a 3star hotel would have. Extra is the tv channels, lots of to choose from. Breakfast area was nice, rooftop and good view; food was nothing to shout about, but good enough. Reception staff were friendly and helpful with directions and recommendation.
Bikers: basement parking available, but not many. Partly taken up by hotel own vehicles.

My partner and I stayed at Crystal Lodge on our way to, and on the way back from, the Perhentian Islands. We stayed in a deluxe room both times, which was comfortable enough - it's clean, the bed was comfy and the bathroom perfectly ok. Wifi signal very poor in our first room, but strong on our second visit.

Breakfast buffet nothing to write home about. Don't get your hopes up if you're expecting something like the big hotels in KL etc offer! No cafe/restaurant in the hotel - which is fine, but if you arrive on a Friday (the beginning of their weekend) like we did, you'll be lucky to find anything open in the city, especially between 12 and 2! The location is fine, but there's really not an awful lot to see in Kota Bharu.

As the title says, this hotel is fine for an overnight stay.

The room (2 double beds) was spacious and the toilet was nice and clean. It's near to some interesting sites like museums and the famous pasar siti khadijah. The buffet breakfast was quite a spread but lack of local cuisine. Overall, I would say that this hotel is really value for money.

I stayed 3D2N in superior room on official trip. Since it was school holiday in Malaysia, so most of the hotel fully booking. I is a good hotel located in city area. The room was clean, comfortable & silent. Free wifi with good connection.

Besides local tv channel & satellite tv , they also provide Thai tv since it is near to the border.

I really love their restaurant which located at 7th floor. There is open air without roof area with good city view, suitable for breakfast (but not for lunch...hehe!) The breakfast choices not so many but enough for all ages with several local foods.

The only problem, there is no freezer the room which normally a must for me.

Room Tip: Higher floor for better city view

Somehow I was not expecting much. It was quite nice though. Had enough parking, place was decently clean and reasonably sized. I stayed in a family room which had a kitchen area which was nice. wifi was spotty and there could be more tv channels if I could give a suggestion. Waw restaurant nearby is quite nice.
