This hotel room condition so so and the hotel WiFi connection terrible bad.
Room 524. No hot water shower. Toilet and bathroom with stains on wall, bed very old not comfortable just like sleeping on spring, got ants, old towels & etc.
No mineral water, bedsheet/blanket with stains.
So so, request no floor smoking but room still can smell the smoke
Great location from town.
Stayed overnight. the room and toilet looks clean eventhough it seems a little small for 2 adult. Anyway, the hotels drinking water facility is very good. Thumbs-up.
Theres no shampoo in the toilet.
Will come back again.. Easy to access

A nice surprise
I chose to stay here because I am looking for a decent, not too expensive yet still offer everything that I need like a nice comfy bed, clean bathroom and toilet with nearby facilities. But what attracted me the most is the location of the hotel which is just beside the Kelantan River. I love the view of the river. Basically, the hotel offers everything that I needed at a reasonable price. The reception staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and I had a good night sleep throughout my stay. The breakfast that comes with the room was not too luxurious but just enough and was quite tasty. I had the opportunity to cruise the Kelantan River since the Jetty is just nearby. There are other attractions nearby but since I spent most of my time at work, I did not do much except the short boat trip to Kampung Laut. I recommend the place as it is also near the city center, the mosque and it is strategically located. I think some hotel tenants who have their own transport may have a bit of a challenge with parking. But since I travel by taxi, I did not experience this. All in all, I made a right choice.

Ridel by the River
I was supposed to stay here from Feb 15-17, 2017, but unfortunately, due to the sudden and untimely demise of my late father in law, left immediately back for home in KL on 16th Feb. Ridel is nice. I love the strong airy and windy reception area. Also love the fact that they are by the side of the Kelantan river. The reception was friendly. English is not a problem for them. My first room, 554, turned out to be smelly and dark! What a relief that when I mentioned this to them, and requested for another room, they worked on it immediately, and I got 557, which was lovely! Bright, and a nice fragrance to boot as well. Food wise, there are quite a number of eateries along the block. The hotel is next to Pelangi Mall. However, I would greatly recommend that you walk towards Merdeka Square which is barely 150 metres away from the riverfront, and you'll come face to face with historic Kelantan, Islamic Kelantan, and the fantastic White Horse cafe. It's 'roti bakar' is simply fantastic! I first tasted it way back in the late 90's, and I NEVER forgot its taste. So, do roll over to Kota Baru. Here and there it does come across as a town needing much restoration and redevelopment, but the old world ambience is unmistakable. I almost felt that at anytime, I would see Japanese soldiers marching in as they did in 1941, when they invaded Malaya through their landing in Kota Baru, during the WW2. You can check it out yourself in the War Museum which is also within walking distance of Ridel.

Situated at Central Kota Bharu
I like this hotel it is located at Kelantan riverbank. Cheap for budget travellers. Free wifi and breakfast included. The Masjid Muhammadi is walking distance, for muslim you may perform prayer 5 times there.

Strategically located
Been there for one night early 2017. I like the location, which is heart of historical place & attraction. Museum, night market, Pasar Siti Khadijah(morning market) within walking distance. The bulding facing big river, down there many people doing leisure trip with family at night cuz have big food court, small night market , baby monkey show, fishing port. U shud no worry about foods. Breakfast is provided inside cafe restaurant, the choices is okay n variety, try side order dimsum best. The room & bathroom is okay for couple, not really small. I paid RM149 for riverview room that supposed to be RM109 without bfast, maybe because town rates. The one thing that annoyed me, is parking which is at bulding front is limited,not control by hotel management. Its designated for hotel customer but Always full because public also park there. Hotel shud do sumthing@hire worker to look after the parking to prevent public use it. So far, i still recommend this hotel for tourist spot.
