Booked 2 standard rooms for 3 nights but were upgraded to 2 adjacent deluxe rooms upon arrival for free. Second time staying at the hotel. Perfectly located for a little bit of shopping and dining at hotel surroundings and as a base to explore Johor Bahru. Rooms are clean and spacious. There are faulty and a little loose power outlets... More

My advice, please do not be fooled by all the wonderful reviews here. We got cheated in a way for trusting these reviews. All we wanted was a decent and comfortable 2 nights' stay as it was just a short getaway for us but even that was not fulfilled... It maybe slightly cheaper compared to other hotels like Thistle, Hyatt... More

If you need a hotel in Johor with reasonable price, average room, good buffet breakfast and safe parking, Hotel Grand Paragon will be your best choice. For my family, whenever we want to stay overnight in Johor, the first most important thing is to find a hotel that has own parking lots. We do feel safe to park our car... More

Had a very bad experience with hotel as the bathtub was dirty. All the rooms were smoky and noisy. Cant sleep at all due to discotheque on the top floor. Interesting people comes to the hotel... Unfriendly Duty Manager at the counter..... Will never stay in the hotel..

Called in for a drink after work.. Staff openly lied about the cost of drinks - totally ripped us off because we were clearly in town on business.. Foreign people are clearly a target for this kind of behaviour. Bar was empty, probably for good reason - AVOID

I stayed at this hotel last weekend. Good location and the staff were friendly. I get a room quite spacious but a bit musty smell. there is a swimming pool, but the swimming pool is quite small for a four star hotel :). The breakfast buffet is sure not to be missed. it was very varied, such Nasi Lemak, various... More

There is also a chinese local food court just behind the hotel. Hotel is easily located via Waze.... More

Firstly, check in was smooth which took about 10-15 mins. You have to provide 100RM or 50SGD for deposit which you'll get when you check out. We got room 1920 (yes, its a nice number on level 19) but upon entering, it really has that musky smell as mentioned by other reviewers. The room doesn't have good air conditioning and... More
