Where to stay in Alor Setar

The amount of choices for where to go for a night's rest is disproportionately small for a city of Alor Setar's size. Most of the options cluster in the center of the city to the east of the river. The hotels in general are three-star, but you can find a few four- or five-star accommodations if you look along the outskirts of the city. Also find a few budget-traveler options spaced around the city.
