We booked the Superior Room with Free Wifi and Free Breakfast and King Bed. Got a room on 16th floor in Tower 2 with a nice city view. The room is tastefully decorated and most importantly was clean with a really great big King Size bed. The bed and the pillows were very comfortable. Basic amenities in the bathroom, in... More

This hotel is designed for hotels and tour groups and doesnt really support the business traveller. I found the check in slow and the staff were extremely difficult. I wont outline my issue here, but dont expect anyone to go the extra mile for you. I did find the promotion for the pool amusing... A huge dinosaur park, raaaar, actually... More

The convenient location is the best selling point of the hotel especially for family travel. If you have tight time schedule, this is one of the best choice. It only takes 10 mins to the CIQ / Causeway to Singapore and 20 mins to Lego Land / Hello Kitty Land. The hotel is connected to shopping mall, there are many... More

the hotel is located above a shopping mall, but the swimming pool area is nice. Reception is rather nonchalant but efficient. Rooms are tidy and clean. Everything you need is present although the room setup (junior suite) was not efficient. Good for a short stay in Johor Bahru.

Our advice is to stick to International Brands like Doubletree by Hilton, etc. We are from Melbourne and with "deep regret", choose to stay at this Hotel for 4days to visit family members. We should have stuck with Doubletree Hilton, of which we stayed 2 comfortable nights, went up to Penang and during the return trip, chose KSL because we... More

The residence is located next to the KSL resort hotel and shopping mall. Location wise it's ideal for the family. To park though, takes patience and skill. There is always a massive jam before you can enter and the multi level parking is tight and winding. Service at the reception is so-so. Perhaps I had checked in at night and... More

The hotel does not provide baby bath tub, baby cots are very very limited and you will have great difficulty to get it although you may have specifically requested for it when you book. The shower in the room is those overhead shower and it is not possible to bath my then 8 month old daughter. End up we had... More

Stayed in KSL hotel and resort last February 7, 2015. We went to Johor for a short staycation. We chose Johor because its just a few minutes bus ride from Singapore and KSL was the hotel of our choice. We had no problem getting to the hotel. We took a taxi from City Square Mall which cost us 10 ringgit... More

KSL phonelines do not even work and when i called the telephone operator to make a reservation, she took down my number and never called me back. Phone etiquette was not even there. The duty manager was not competent and could not aceed to my requests. She merely expected me to tell her which staff was rude. Nevertheless I chosed... More
