Had Dinner at Oasis with my family. Food was excellent and service was good. Osveen was awesome in recommending the selection of wines. Atmosphere was good beside the poolside. I would highly recommend Oasis for a romantic candlelight dinner by the pool

I liked the hotel for the hotel. The rooms were very clean and it feels as though it was just renovated. It that is not the case, then they really do a good job in keeping it feeling new. Only downside is that there isn't much around the hotel. There was a row of shops across the road, but otherwise,... More

Check-in was friendly if a bit slow. My room was spacious, but the quality of the construction left a bit to be desired: some of the paint was starting to peel and the connection to the shower head sprayed water above the curtain and all over the bathroom. I stepped on a loose screw in the carpet. The minibar was... More

I had a splendid and brilliant wedding reception experience here on 05/04/2014 ! I'm from Penang, and I chose Thistle Johor Bahru as my wedding venue after carefully shortlisting a few other venues in Johor Bahru (most of my relatives are from Johor & Singapore). It was a night event held at the Orchid Ballroom, with a total number of... More

Lovely hotel with excellent service. Spacious deluxe room with comfortable bed and exquisite interior. Booked this hotel for wife's birthday surprise. Requested for additional service of decorating the room with rose petals with birthday messages, together with the cake. The hotel dutifully agreed to make this arrangement for reasonable charges. It was a pleasant surprise for her. Didn't expect the... More

But the moment i arrived, my fears and concerns were allayed by the warmth and friendliness of the hotel staff. I was using a walking stick so the staff made me sit down while they saw to my check-in. I didn't even have... More

Food was mediocre but prices very 5-star. The club lounge is beautifull, but the service not good enough. children in the club lounge is an absolute no-no. But let them... More

You can find everything here, from the good to the bad, the promised and the surprise...the Thistle Johor Baru has it all and sometimes one person did show all those facets. We spent 2 nights at the hotel, my wife and me, our 20 month old son and the helper in 2 rooms which were next to each other however... More
