The best hotel in JB that I've went to so far. Stayed here for 1 month during Ramadhan. Really enjoyed the breakfast/sahur buffet. The food was excellent. The room is very cosy, with a really comfy mattress. Will definitely come here again if given a chance. Thumbs Up!

Awesome service with delicious food! Friendly staff to guide us. Swimming pool was clean and we really had a good time at the bar "the hive". Definitely will propose this hotel to all my family and friends.

One thing need to be improved is that the there is no life guards around the swimming pool. My 4... More

Stayed in this hotel for a business trip and found it to be a frustrating stay. I was unable to work from my room due to poor WIFI; I also found it difficult to sleep due to the traffic noise outside and irregular air conditioning.

There are not many nice hotels in JB and this the is definitely one of the few. If you have a car, then location would not be a problem. I am generally satisfied with the hotel overall. Breakfast was superb with various choices

Thistle is probably one of the better hotels in JB in terms of branding, facilities and infrastructure. Checking in was a breeze and the wifi worked fine in both room and lobby. Staff were friendly and warm. The room was average - not fantastic - but clean and neat. Standard hotel essentials were available - if not, room service is... More
