Ridel Hotel, Kota Bharu

I booked directly with Ridel Hotel via website as I wanted their Executive Room. You can also make reservation via but room options is limited.

Check-in was a breeze, just find 'Reception' sign under Riverfront Hotel- same place. No wonder I couldn't find that hotel online! Arrived at 2pm, gave the booking number & left RM200 deposit. 

Executive room was comfortable, just enough space for 2 of us. Peeked at other rooms, a bit cramped for me. If you just want a bed to sleep in, the standard rooms are acceptable.

We moved the table next to the sofa so I don't bump against it & bruise myself

Flat tv with selected Astro channels, mini bar and mirror. Am a happy gal.

Pretty lighting

Clean sheet, clean shower, clean room. VERY basic toilettries. Oh, could use a couple more power points though. It wasn't very convenient to switch off the mini bar in order to boil water (kettle, bottles water and coffee & tea supply provided).

Guests get welcome drinks (coupons) and breakfast (coupons) which can be redeemed at the hotel's restaurant, Shark Lounge. Your welcome drink should be redeemed on your check-in day. I went to get mine around 3 or 4 pm so the lounge was pretty empty =p

Keep these safe!

Breakfast was just okay but hey you're in Kelantan! Go to one of those yummy warung instead. Unless you're lazy like us.

Breakfast at Ridel Hotel
No idea what rice was that. Love the porridge! Others are okay

Buffet area. Not much to choose from.

Check-out was very quick & efficient. It is very likely that I'll stay in Ridel again :)
