OK - this large hotel has seen better days and is just about at 3 star standard but it is inexpensive and has the essentials and the staff try hard. Thanks. We stayed 3 nights over a weekend ( no food) check in and parking was great - helpful staff - room was large with great view across to Singapore.... More

Stayed a night on 28/1/16. Arrived almost midnight and there was only one staff manning the counter which is understandable. Check in took rather long...about 20minutes. Hotel is quite old but clean with decent rooms. It is rated as a 4star hotel but appears like a 3 star hotel to me.

The room is spacious, big king size comfortable bed and walkable location to KSL, price is cheaper than KSL hotel. However, the toilet light is dark and bathtub is dirty and small. If the toilet is renovated, i might stay there everytime I go to JB, but since it is not the case, i still choose KSL hotel.

Our mini fridge was out of order but we didn't call room service to get it replaced. It was good to have but not a must. Lifts were pretty slow, so there were a bit of traffic during breakfast. Complimentary breakfast was good except that it was really crowded and our table got cleared when we went to take food.... More

Type of room: Delux I requested for double room but I wasn't given one as they said it is not available and this is during off peak season. The front desk staff were not very friendly. The room seems to be small as there were two queen size bed. It is 10mins walk to KSL shopping mall. We didn't walk... More

The hotel is located at city center of Johor Bahru (JB) across Plaza Pelangi at the other side of Lebuhraya Tebrau. Good location for business travelers in JB. View from hotel room is awesome at night and morning. Breakfast is better than average. I will return to the hotel again.

Good location with plentiful of eateries and very good prices. Hotel is quite new and rooms are quite spacious too. There is a spa in the hotel but cater mostly for the men who want happy ending service .
