A few minute walk away from the Johor Bahru immigration, Meldrum has been a home for a friend and I during desperate times. We were scavenging for a cheap-rated hotel with wifi, and amidst that long street we found Meldrum. Checking in was a sigh of relief. We were greeted by a nice Filipina receptionist who assisted us and gave... More

I chose this hotel because it did not get a room at the hotel that I ever stay before. Since it's only for overnight transit and I must check out in the early morning so I chose this hotel with good expectations like what I have experience in the other hotel nearby. When we checked in the receptionist and her... More

I asked to be changed to a non-smoking room, and was informed that I would have to upgrade to a more expensive room. Management would... More

Definitly the cheaper... More

This has got to be one of the worst hotels we've ever stayed in, in a prettty awful city. The 2 rooms we had were both run down, the bathroom plumbing was all rusted, the curtains & some of the blanket s had cigarette burns in them, some of the sheets had stains on them, the airconditioner (split system on...

Taking the bus to Melaka the next morning, the big question for me was whether to stay the night in Singapore or go over the border to Johor Bahru, as I had heard some less charming things about the city of JB. I chose the all-Malaysian option, and I am happy I did. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the... More
