A well run and clean hotel, lots of rooms, good rooms and decent wifi. They have motorcycle parking if needed. Kuantan is not the most exciting city in the world though, but if you need to be in the neighborhood, it's a good place to hang a day or two.

I got river view room, which was only MR100 even during the chinese new year. Other rooms are cheaper. Very big room and bathroom, nice breakfast. There was a new big screen TV, so I was just watching TV movie whole day.
But somehow, I got a cold shower.
Staff and maids are very nice.
There was a balcony that you can hang out, but some sofa was not clean.
Nice location to the river, but bit far from long dinstance bus station.

I went to check out the river cruse, but they stoped mangrove jungle tour. Only go up to South China and come back. Make sure the schedule also.

Nice, modest hotel near the river. Even the hotel was pretty basic, it was very clean. Bathroom in our room had just been renovated and it was like in better hotels. Also the bed was incredibly nice. There was a new flat-screen TV and pretty many channels. However, not so many English channels is not. The Hotel have free WIFI on common areas and rooms.
Modest breakfast was also included in the room rate. Walking in price for Standard Room was amazing cheap 80RM/night.

Stayed in quad room. Spacious room. Breakfast simple and good. Kudos to auntie who prepared buffet spread which my family enjoyed. Room windows should be improved.

My review concurs with the others on this site - there's nothing amazing about this hotel, but it does the required job.

Kuantan doesn't have a lot to attract tourists - it's a place for locals to live and work, not a holiday destination, so many hotels are more geared to businessmen than backpackers or tourists. I stayed there 2 nights while waiting for an available seat on a bus to my onward destination. Rooms are in the mid-range price, rather than budget (I paid 98RM a night, roughly £20).

Classic Hotel is a large, fairly characterless block. The rooms are comfortable and clean. There are decent amenities (wifi, tv, tea and coffee making facilities in the room, ensuite with hot water, hot breakfast included). They changed the sheets every day.

I took a room facing the river - unfortunately there's a fairly derelict plot of land between the back of the hotel and the river (plus the alleyway where they keep the bins) so the view is a little bit spoiled. But I suppose it's better than facing the main street at the front!

There's really nothing much to complain about, just nothing to get excited about either. If you're stuck in town over night and need a clean place to get some sleep, it'll do.

When we stayed here the hotel was quite empty and very few foreign people. Easy to have a room. They are very basic and charmless. Big cockroach in the bathroom, but he was more afraid than us. Don't stay here more than one night. Except for the beautiful blue mosque there is not too much to do. If you want to buy beers go to the chinese shop.
