“A pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

I wasn't looking forward to Kota Bharu visit as my previous stay in Perdana and Renaissance a couple of years ago had been terrible. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to have been booked into this newly refurbished Perdana hotel. It was clean, the room was spacious and the decor modern and not over the top. Food was excellent and the restaurant layout was interesting. It is bright and welcoming. The staffs greeted me with genuine smiles, very efficient check in and out, room service was fast. The only complain was the guests across the room- I think the couple had 3 pre teen children who made so much noise, running around the hallway and banging on doors etc. all night Also the late night World Cup cheers did disturb my sleep. The hotel need to look into the inter room walls and work on dampening the noise a bit. Other than that I would like to congratulate the hotel and hope you won't allow the hotel to deteriorate like it did before...

nice deco at the lobby, modern room deco, big, clean n spacious room, spread of local foods. Truly a 5 star experience. Would visit again

The only drawback was the steam iron provided by the hotel. Do not use it !
Also, no view or city view

Was a premier hotel in KB, then renovated, took sooo long..finally reopened..I manage to try the hotel this month..Claimed to be a 5star hotel, i guess they're not far off the mark..good,secure n ample parking..we check-in early, in premier room..reasonably sized room, decor bit average for a 5Star..lobby, sofas, good..welcome drinks, a 5star touch..good size pools, great service & full of smiles, typical of east coast charm..miss the bfast though, unable to comment..
Overall, will come again, will recommend to others..Overseas tourist, if u re looking for a good hotel in Kota Bharu, come here, close to city n great facilities, at reasonabe price..

Room Tip: ask for pool view..

Pleasantly surprised. The last visit was > 10 years ago and I recall the best place to stay was the riverfront hotel.
I did not know what to expect, but on entering this establishment I felt like I was in a hotel in a bigger city.
The hotel had a nice decor, I was informed it had been recently renovated which turned out beautifully.
The room was very nice. We managed to change rooms from viewing the carpark to viewing the pool. Rooms were clean with standard amenities.
I did use the pool and it was ok. For some reason it was not deep enough. On one end it was around waist deep on the other about 4 feet max. The gym looked good but did not try it.
Did not try the breakfast although included.
It is opposite the football stadium and close to town. There were some shops across the road.
Will come again

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the pool

This is by far the best hotel in Kota Bharu. The room is big, clean and tidy. However the bathroom is quite small. The check in was fast and most of the staffs speak good English. There is one 7/11 besides the hotel. Breakfast has lot of varieties with some very good local Kelantan delicacies. Location is strategically located in the central of town. The only problem will be the location of the room at the side wing (The hotel has only 3 floors with hundreds of room, which mean you need to walk really far if you have given room located at size wing). Overall a very good and value experience.

Room Tip: Ask for room near to lift.

The staff very friendly, helpful and charming. The room is nice and the food is good. The location in the middle of kota bharu so very easy for sight seeing. Great amenities but limited parking. Overall still great
