Booked a night's stay at this hotel after reading some of the online reivews which was pretty good. I must say that this hotel generally lives up to its name with the grand high ceilings and curved staircase at the lobby, sizable and spacious room with all the necessary creature comforts. Check in was a breeze and the front desk...

Rooms were good, slightly dated and aging but clean. Large king size bed, flat screen TV, fridge, safe, free wifi (2 connections only per room). Good bathroom with toiletries. Air conditioning (very cold). We had a view of the river. Rooms were also quiet and blockout curtains. Breakfast was included, paid 268RM per night. Breakfast was basic and mostly Malay...

This was my first time staying in this hotel. Once reached the lobby look awesome however when I enter the room, it was a huge room but old furniture with dim light. The view was excellent and overall I find it is comfortable to sleep in only. The breakfast was not what I expected, reason is, it is not appealing...

It's quite old hotel but It's worth with what I paid for. A piece of advice. do find any discount rate in any website. Try to book 2 months upfront to get affordable value. I am very satisfied with the service especially the reception, doorman and the housekeeping. I went with family during my convocation day last 12/2015.

A 4 star hotel with great facilities. Near to city center. The food was great and all round the clock order available. Try discount partner websites for great pricing offer. Certainly value for money.

Hotel staff were very smiling and accomodating, and airport pickup was cheap and efficient. Room very spacious. But how this hotel can have a 3,5 star rating on hotels.com is incomprehensible. The carpet in the room is dingy and very strange to walk on. The light behind the bed would not stop flickering. The sheets appeared moist when I went...

GRV Hotel would have to be one of the best hotels in Kota Bharu. I had the pleasure of staying there with my friend in May 2016 and really glad we chose this hotel. Although GRV is a long established hotel, and you can see a little bit of wear and tear here and there, I think the positives far...
