Kuantan: 3days2night

It hit our freaking-bored nerve when we have to search a place to stay in Kuantan. As a frequent visitor, we have tried almost all the main-stream hotel, Hyatt, Zenith, Vistana and have been repeating these hotels for most of yhe visits.

This time around for a 3days2night trip, we decided to run a new adventure, why not try another range of hotels, perhaps those 3-star or the budget boutique hotel. Upon browsing the net and narrowing down our selection of choice, we even got ambitious by deciding to stay at 2different hotel on each day; we chose Hotel Sentral Kuantan for the first day, and Hotel Megaview for the next. Both located along Jalan Besar Kuantan.

Hotel Sentral Kuantan
Booking via phone is at ease, you can always call them at +609-5659999 for your booking. The lobby is spacious in terms of its layout planning with minimal decor and furnishing. Their theme color of mass creamy white and hints of red were brilliantly use without overwhelming the space. Registration/reception is of simple functional design and I think with the ease flow of the 3 staff behind it are working on, it must be practically designed for.
Our room was at Mezzanine floor. Was a bit sceptical since never before we had rooms at mezzanine floor. Of course we were already informed earlier during the booking that they only had rooms without view left, so our room definitely doesn't have any view outside of it. But for RM148 nett, the room fulfill our expectation satisfactorily. Design concept and its layout is neat with ample circulation. Most importantly it is clean without any mold or dark stain. The bathroom however was a little bit tight in terms of circulation, perhaps due to the size of the room, but all fittings are in good working condition.
The room comes with complimentary breakfast but we didn't try it though as we are anticipating another gastronomic adverture for local food, so we hardly can't comment on that. The coffee house is located on the ground floor next to the lobby and at a glance, it looks quite presentable. So, it's you to find out and to rate the quality of food serves here.

Next, we are off for our next escapade...this time around we choose
Hotel Kuantan Megaview
