A very well located hotel, near sport facilities, and near to the Border of Singapore. Taking in consideration the national level, and that you are out of the capital, i thing it is the best option there. Good international cousine, and good attention from the staff. The rooms are spacious and well equipated. Perhaps not as clean as it has... More

I stayed at the old Hyatt in the mid 1990's, and this time it was coming back to the same hotel, under a new name. Thistle has been renovated and things look quite the same. I like the location and the view, and the rooms are spacious. Staff are friendly especially bell service. Rooms could have better amenities and food... More

Was supposed to be one of the few 5 stars hotel in JB. Location wise is ok, probably about 5 to 10 mins drive to city centre. But room standard is poor. Staff service level is good. My room was dirty & had many little insects in the room. Furthermore the so-called free WIFI was non existent. Could never get... More

First impression with the room? Old fashioned, dark and not very well-maintained. The room seemed a little dark for my liking. Instead of the... More

To my expectation, this is what a 5-star hotel should be like. Or maybe it could be better. Anyways, service was good! The staff were really friendly! The only thing I am so not sure of was whether to tip the staff for helping us with our luggage up into the room. The staff overall was really friendly and helpful.... More
