Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Centrally located at the old quarters

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Oct 2020via mobile
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.

Its a good location hotel near some restaurants and shops. Value for money hotel but the ambiance need to be upgraded for more pleasant.
Hopefully this can be upgraded and see the difference when my next visit!

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.

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.

Room tip: Get river view room to escape the street noise. For sleep only bargain, get the air well room.
