I have become a frequent visitor to Kuala Terengganu due to personal reason. So far I’ve stayed in Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Terengganu and Felda Residence Kuala Terengganu. My stay at Hotel Seri Malaysia was less than 12 hours thus I don’t think I should write much about it. Maybe if my wife and I decided to stay there again in the future, I’ll take some photos and write about our experience there.
So, I bought a voucher from Traveloka for my 2 nights stay in Felda Residence Kuala Terengganu. For the first night, I was staying alone so I bought a room only voucher for RM87.75 whereas my second night cost me RM108.75 which comes with free breakfast for 2 pax. The room also have free wifi; here is the link to my speedtest result or you may refer to the screenshot below. It is acceptable speed considering Unifi (Malaysian highspeed broadband package by TM) is not available in Kuala Terengganu yet.
The toilet is clean and we never ran out of hot water. I think the hotel has been around for quite some time, their stuff are a bit old. For example, this is the first in years that I found a hotel room using a bulky Television set instead of LCD TV, you get the idea right?
The original price for the room is over RM150 per night yet I booked the room using Traveloka for with over 40% off so they gave me a room which is facing the city instead of the river. There are plenty of car parks available around the hotel too but they are open car park so if there is an event nearby, it may be quite hard to get a parking space. Did I mention the hotel has a nice river view?
Unfortunately, there are things that I am not satisfied with the hotel, it is smelly. The moment I exited the lift, there exist noticeable musty smell and it is also noticeable inside our hotel room but it is not as strong. Next would be the air conditioner, I don’t think the temperature controller works. The room is extremely cold that I had to turn off the A/C once in a while to keep the room to an acceptable temperature.
Apart from the smell and the freezing A/C, I don’t think there is anything else that I am not satisfied with the hotel. It was Ramadhan so I didn’t really go through all the accommodations available in the hotel. I am not even sure if the hotel has a swimming pool and a gym as most of my time were spent inside the room doing my work and sleeping.
