This was the hotel I stayed in for three nights in Kota Bharu. It was a brand new one, was just opened about a month before. It is located at about half an hour walk from Siti Khadijah Market and situated right next to Kota Bharu Mall.

The rate was reasonable, with tax and all the package cost about RM80++. Nevertheless, do not get too excited because there was catch behind the tag line "you pay for what you are using". For example, if you want to use the hotel towel and toiletries, you have to pay for them and plus, a deposit of RM10 needed to be surrendered at the counter just in case you would love the towel so much and run home with it. For my 3-night stay,the package included air-conditioner usage for 12 hours and TV service for 24 hours. And after that, for extra usage, I had to pay more.

There was an internet kiosk at the lobby and usage was free of charge but that must had been included in the package offered.

it has now officially become my bookmark

Nevertheless, I was quite happy staying there. Nothing much to complain as I was always on the move and only spent the time in the room for less than twelve hours a day. For backpackers, this could be an option if you want a bit of luxury once in a while.
