I stayed with family on 2nd-4/5, the check-in was ok but there's some problem when they can't find my booking with booking.com but the staff managed to handle it without long waiting. Parking was free. Our room at level 17, we're unable to switch on the tv n the refrigerator is not working. Called the operator and around 15 min,... More

Booked a deluxe room for one night and requested for high floor. We stayed at level 21 and that came with a nice view of Johor Bahru City. Although the Grand Paragon Hotel claimed to be a 4 Star hotel but it failed to live up to the standard. The building and the room appears to be dated and smoking... More

I booked a family suite through booking.com for a night stay on the 30th April. This morning, 29th of April, I cancelled this booking as my mum-in-law wasnt well and made another booking for a double room. Immediately I called the Hotel to ask for a waiver of the charges for cancellation on the first room as I wasnt able... More

This is my second stay/review at Grand Paragon hotel. Out of 260 reviews, about 13% was terrible & bad reviews. Most of the reviews were very good. As usual, we booked the twin bed deluxe room for our family of 3. The two single beds is more like a queen bed and spacious enough for me & my daughter to... More

Hotel services and cleanness were average good. It not a terribly new hotel so do not expect super clean rooms and lobby area The rooms were quite big with a full size queen size room and another smaller bed if your require. It is ok if you need a room for business for a couple of days

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
