Pavilion Hotel is a beautiful budget hotel in the heart of Kuantan in an area which is developing quickly. Behind Putra Square, and sandwiched between East Coast Mall and Berjaya Megamall, Pavilion Hotel is a perfect choice if you are travelling on a budget but would still like a comfortable place to stay.
Pavilion Hotel is located on Jalan Tun Ismail 1. The owner of the hotel, and my good friend, Mr. Victor Tan, invited my family over for a free night's stay at the end of July.
As you can see, the prices start from RM98 which is a single room, very small, but remember, this is a budget hotel for travellers, so that's to be expected. RM188 will get you the biggest family room, which we stayed in last week.

The walls have the most fantastic wallpaper, as you can observe from this picture. The great wallpaper continues right through the hotel.

Our family suite was lovely and more spacious than I had imagined! Two queen sized beds lay waiting for us, and I must admit, I don't think I've had a better sleep anywhere else in Kuantan! Along with Vistana Hotel beds, these were the most comfortable beds I've slept in.

|So did we all!|

The bathroom was very nice and clean and simple. Loved the shower with a choice of large overhead shower head or smaller hand-held head. The temperature control worked well too.
A choice of toilet paper or water (via hose) is also very important for me. The hose is just out of the picture near the bottom right-hand corner. I was happy to see 5 towels folded up neatly in the bathroom!
Downstairs in the reception at Pavilion Hotel is a nice little area where you can buy food and drinks and toiletries.
Some of the channels on the TV in the room were a bit fuzzy, and the selection of channels is limited, but that is more than compensated by a great little scheme of DVD rental.
We chose a couple of movies to watch for the night. That certainly helped the night time pass by smoothly and we think this is a great feature of Pavilion Hotel!
A short walk down the shop lots from Pavilion Hotel will bring you to the junction where Berjaya Megamall is located.
We were very satisfied with our stay at Pavilion Hotel. Thanks Victor for giving us this chance, and we recommend Pavilion Hotel to any traveller coming to Kuantan on a budget.
Good night from Pavilion Hotel, Kuantan!
