    Great Location, Friendly Staff”

    Friendly staff, location

    Like the title has suggested, plus points about the Temenggong Hotel are that the location is great and staff members are friendly. The hotel is about 5 minutes from the bus station, where one can take a bus to nearby places like Tumpat, Pantai Cahaya Bulan, etc. However for long distance buses there is another station situated 15 mins away, near Tesco Kota Bharu. The famous Siti Khadijah market is also a stone's throw away from Temenggong Hotel. Downside of this hotel being the cleanliness. Back in August this year, I checked in to a room with faulty light and water tab in the bathroom. Also, TV was not working and the room was a little dark. Price is reasonable if cleanliness could be improved.

    Just for a Night.”

    Location. No hassle check-in/out. Walking distance to shopping bazaars.

    The room has ants on the bed sheets. I do not know where the ants comes from but a few beatings on the bed sheets got rid of them without them returning. The hotel is old and antiqued, other than the creaking elevator the hotel is clean and an experience befitting a hotel from the 80s.

    Location

    we booked two rooms. One was acceptable. The other one we looked cockroaches as were the other 3 they showed us - once the door opened the cockroaches disappeared from the bed. Water heater was not working. Rooms are very small and smelly.Not very clean. We would avoid this hotel but the location is great in the middle of the town close to attractions and bus bus station.Staff was helpful but not very enthusiastic to maintain the accommodations. We didn't eat anything in the hotel.
