We arrived in Kuala Terengganu without a hotel reservation during the Chinese New Year and were able to find a room at the Grand Continental. Check in was friendly and efficient. Got to our non-smoking room (1113) and felt like we had stepped back into the 80s, LOL! The decor looked that dated. But the room was large and clean. We had a seaview room which gave us a good look at the beach reclamation work going on behind the hotel. The bed provided a great sleep and we woke up early to take advantage of the buffet breakfast. The buffet was fairly well stocked although choices for a Westerner are limited. Service staff was efficient at clearing tables. No problems at checkout.
We've stayed at various hotels in KT, from budget to luxury. So far, I like this one the best. Price was more than what I had wanted to pay, but this was Chinese New Year so I was happy that we were at least able to get a decent room without having to look too much. If you can get beyond the dated room decor, the rooms themselves are quite large and comfortable. Looks like we have found our homebase for future trips to KT...More
