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...

Book the family room. Very spacious and clean. The family room got 1 Queen Bed and 2 Single Bed. We also add 1 single bed and it only cost us RM 35 including breakfast. But it only got 1 toilet. The hotel is near to the river side and lots of nearby restaurant.

As a place to stay while in Kota Bharu on business the Ridel is fit for purpose. Checking in and out were both very quick and easy. My room on the 5th floor had a magnificent view of the river and adjacent Observation tower. The bath and bed linen was clean, the bed comfortable. The only drawback was no chair,...

We stayed for two night with 2 check-in, thus 2 different rooms. The cheapest room has no window. Basically, a bit small, the mirror is placed at a cramped area of the room, next to the bathroom, not well sound treated as we can hears others from the next room. Room 1 was a bit smelly (undefined). Room 2 is...
