“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2016

Crystal Lodge was adequate for the one night stop over in Kota Bharu and the location was quite good (which is why we chose to stay here) however the town of Kota Bharu was very intimidating so as a tourist I would recommend paying a little more and staying in a nicer hotel where you have more amenities on site rather than going into town. The rooms were very basic, the hair dryer in one of our rooms blew up while being used, the staff replaced it but didn't seemed too worried about the fact it had blown up. Breakfast was OK, most of the food was cold however they do provide a microwave to warm it up (which we used). The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked well.

Located near riverside. Have good breakfast for guess at rooftop restaurant. Old hotel but well maintain. Polite staff. Price a bit high for Kelantan area. Nearby city center but you need a car to travel. Taxi here need earlier booking. So far I will visit there again.

Stayed August 2016, travelled on business

i manage to get a room with single bed by walk in. just nice for single traveller on business matter. only chiller/freezer the hotel is still missing. breakfast as provided still at roof top which is quite fantastic during sunrise. highly recommend for those who dont look for 'pampering' things.

Room Tip: ask counter for room facing jalan che su for city viewing or kelantan river.

stay here for 2 nights on business trip. this hotel is located close to kelantan river and muhammadi mosque. the hotel lobby just average with two (2) computers for surfing. this hotel consists of old and new block attached together. the room is quite small but acceptable, clean and comes with aircond, tv, cable tv, built - in iron and board and free wifi. wifi is quite good with strong signal. the bed was so comfy and i really loved lying on it. neither fridge nor phone is provided in the room. it was frustrating me as the reception guy mention there is fridge in the room which i thought great to keep my murtabak raja if i buy one later on. the bathroom is clean and centralize hot water is provided. shower head was big and water pressure was good. a satisfying shower bath at the end of a long haul day. this hotel also provide gym. room price is affordable.

i had to say this hotel gave me the most spectacular view while having my breakfast, on the rooftop. lots of option on the dishes and it was delicious. the hotel just within walking distance to pasar besar siti khadijah (siti khadijah market), kota bharu trade centre, bazaar, bus station and bank. if you are a interest in buying gold accessory and jewelry, there were a few gold shops just in front the bazaar. kota bharu mall, tesco and aeon jusco just 10 minutes drive from the hotel. there was a place to eat namely lido corner just 50 meter away from the hotel. it was aired on tasty local cuisine show but i didn't have the chance to try since my job took place outside kota bharu and it was open during lunch to early evening. the only downside of this hotel is the provided car park at the back of the hotel and basement park as it was cramped. if they could enhance this issue it will be much more better. overall, great hotel, amazing location, delectable breakfast with astounding sky view of kota bharu. will come here again with family and kids

Although old, it doesn't appear it's age. The place is keep neat, clean and tidy all the time. The room was nice and cosy. Loved the shower, the pressure was great. Wifi works great. The breakfast had the widest spread for a 3 star hotel. Taste great as well. Different menu daily too. Didn't have the opportunity to dine in their open roof top with the view of the city. Started early at 5.30am for the early riser like me. Location is within walking distance to the city center.
