About Hotel Tanjong Vista

Istana Maziah, the Sultan’s Palace, is an easy 20-minute walk from the 3-star and centrally located Hotel Tanjong Vista. The 15,000 capacity Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium is a similar distance away.

Hotel Tanjong Vista has almost 200 en-suite and air-conditioned rooms. They feature LCD TV with satellite channels, free Wi-Fi, minibar and telephone; plus complimentary water and toiletries.

Optional facilities include a gymnasium and luggage storage. The front desk is operational at all times and parking is free. A significant feature is the indoor pool.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner requirements are catered for in Tanjong Cafe. Snacks and sea-views are savoured at Vista Snack Corner. Away from the hotel, and a one-minute walk away, are the ice cream delights at Tutti Frutti Kuala Terengganu and the varied menus at Restoran Kemana.

It is a journey of around four miles to the floating Tengku Tengah Zaharah Mosque and it is an approximate 20-minute walk to the hugely popular market of Pasar Payang.

Positive Reviews

Cheap rooms with sea-views

Rooms are of a good size. Little extras such as ironing facilities are included and some rooms even have sea-views. Given the fact that this is a budget hotel and that the tariff is correspondingly cheap, guests feel that the overall value is OK.

Access and location are good

Guests returning by car find that there is easy and direct room access via the lift at car park level. The general location is good too, with lots of restaurants, shops and other features that are within very easy walking distance.

Negative Reviews

Not catering for guest requirements

Breakfast is considered to be a dismal start to the day. It is thought to be tasteless and lacking in quality and variety. Similar comments are made in respect of the later dining offerings which also tend to be too greasy for many palates. Fortunately, there are other options nearby and just a short walk away there is a 7-Eleven grocery store.

A bit old and smelly

Everything feels very dated and the rooms remind guests more of a hostel than a star-rated hotel. There are strange smells throughout the building which lead guests to ponder on cleaning and maintenance procedures. The less than clean pool serves to intensify these suspicions.

Life in the slow lane

Everything seems to be in slow motion. Simple requests to staff, some of whom are unsmiling and glum, take hours to be completed. Even the lift is ultra slow. Guests resort to the service lift even at off-peak times. During busy periods the situation becomes impossible. Also and again at off-peak times, guests say that check-in can take forever.
