Stayed here with my family during the long CNY weekend. The hotel was fully occupied. The best thing about this hotel is its location, right in the middle of Kuantan city. There are many shops, restaurants and popular hipster cafes around the hotel. It’s also very near to the Kuantan Waterfront and Kuantan Tower where many activities and musical shows are held regularly.

This hotel is one of the oldest hotel in Kuantan and has been around since the late 70s. It was recently nicely refurbished under the Sentral Hotel Group. The room is spacious and well equipped. There’s also a nice rooftop restaurant that operates in the evening to enjoy the sunset and the bright lights of the waterfront at night. The hotel also provides a very decent buffet breakfast.

The staff are helpful and friendly esp the elderly gentleman who guarded the hotel’s gated parking lot for hotel guests. The housekeeping team is also very efficient and sorted out some issues with our water heater quickly.

My only complaint is about the check-in processes which is still done manually. For example, the front desk ladies have to write receipts manually for our deposit payment! It took quite a while. I pity the ladies who seemed to be under pressure when the que is long for check-in. Other than that, I feel the room rates are on the high side for a 3 star hotel.

The hotel is only 6 storeys so 'city view' is actually overlooking the main busy (read noisy) street below. It is worth paying for d 'deluxe' river view at the back. We stayed in a triple room. If you are no fan of portable third bed, then be sure to specify this. It may be worth taking 2 rooms instead.

Hotel is old but its clean. Decor is nothing to shout about but it is 2-star rated and its relatively good at that. You wont have bottled water but there is hot and cold water dispenser (they have a kettle in the room, too). Ironing is also a corridor affair.

Parking is guarded and gated at the back. There is a restaurant, and one can stroll or jog along d esplanade. Quite a few food joints and amenities around.

Recommended for those on a budget.

It was the famed Samudera Hotel of the 70s and in between the main street (the road that leads to Kuala Lumpur), and the Kuantan river.

Now as Kuantan develops the place has become somewhat of an Old Quarters of Kuantan with its rustic environment, many eateries and quaint old shops.

Thats where the hotel is. They offer good rates if booked direct from their own website.

The 7th floor offers roof top dining but opens only on Friday Saturday and Sunday.

Staff is friendly and secure guarded carpark is behind the hotel by the riverside.

Its just a basic hotel. We arrived around 1045pm and made the reservation thru online. More cheaper than walk-in. Since we arrived late night, the room available on that time is smoking floor. Stay on level 3 with less of smell (the receptionist explained that the smell not to strong compared that lower floor 1 and 2) but still. The entire corridors smell of cigarette. Check in with 2 kids and we dont have any option. Simple amenities shampoo and shower gel. The bathroom floor is wet and slippery. Overall is okay and worth it what you pay. Rm63 pernite.

Rather old hotel but it's just nice for a short stay. It's nearby the Esplanade and walking distance to some food outlets.
Rooms are quite small and should get the Deluxe rooms with windows.
Prices have gone up recently with no reason perhaps the opening of the Esplanade tower.

Booked a family room. Toilet was OK but the hair dryer was not working. Called the Hotel Maintenance but only no maintenance personnel after 12 midnight. My wife unable to dry her hair and had to 'sleep' sitting up. :( . Carpet was the thin type. Mattress was spring type. Overall moderate and served our purpose (mainly because all other hotels within the vicinity were fully booked)

Highly recommended for all type of visits here. Located a walking distances to lots of cafe including kula cakes shop. Staff there were friendly, breakfast was good. Room excellent. Stayed for 1 night only so didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the rooftop dine area. Will definitely choose this hotel again if visit here again.

I booked this hotel through online and i got around 20% discount, found that if i asked from the front desk, the price varies around 9 ringgit, so i just go in my car and booked the hotel through online, considering the price less than 100 ringgit, this hotel is worth the penny I spend

The place is great, its walking distance for the nearest bank (around 500 meter), you can buy dried seafood around that area too, do bargain for the price, you can easily safe ringgit per kg if you haggle it, it used to have local restaurant at the back, however it already changed to another location, you can still walk, just asked the hotel guys, they will help, since they are also friendly

No newspaper at room hence you need to be at the hotel longue, it has english and malay so you can choose your preference,

The room is clean, the TV channel is suffiecient, but its a carpeted room, hence you need to dry your feet before going out from the bath or else the room will be smelly, the first night we are not given any mat for drying out feets hence we just dry it out with tissue instead, if any issue just call up for their friendly staff.

The bed is nice and clean, i was surprise how good it was since the price is really cheap.

The wifi is fast and its really convinient

If you are interested, you can also walked at the back of the hotel, there's a walkway at the pahang river where you can see the mangrove scenery... and the best one if you pay abit extra and go for deluxe room which can see the run rise... its beautiful, either sun rise or sunset, both is magnificient

I do not take the breakfast at the hotel since i was hunting for local food, so no comment on that..

All in all, it's a definite comeback...

The room is spacious and clean. Bathroom as well. Sungai Kuantan is just behind the hotel.

Not so much menu for breakfast but it's ok for me. I like the fried noodles.

The staffs are friendly and always great us everytime we passed thru the counter.

It may depend on the room. I cannot say as I took the most basic room. At least in my case, they provide iron and board at the corridor for common use.
