Great property (modern, quiet and low-key), super staffs, large gym/outdoor pool, free wi-fi and huge breakfast buffet! Had a king-bed room: large, very clean, flat screen TV, great bed and with all amenities you would expect. The gym had the latest equipment and many accessories such as balls, mats and free weights, etc. The staffs (front desk, restaurant and bell... More

This is a great hotel just at the doorstep of Singapore, and taking in account the prices at this hotel, it is worth to cross the border and stay here. Location is great, just 10 minutes away from the causeway (border crossing to Singapore) and 15 minutes from Pasir Gudang (the largest industrial area in Johor). Rooms are well sized,... More

The hotel was booked by my company, and was chosen because of its location. The hotel is not in Johor, but Permas Jaya. It is ideally situated for PJ with many food outlets just a short walk away. Also a few bars & plenty of karaoke bars if you want that side of thing. The check in was quick and... More

Just love the bed! One of the most comfy around. Spacious room and bathroom, clean and well-kept. Buffet breakfast had good spread and selection. Especially liked it that they had fresh juice juiced right in front of you, and I could choose from apples, oranges, honeydew, watermelon, pineapple, celery, tomatoes and even ginger! Also it was nice having the GM... More

First impression for the hotel, the location is a bit off, away from the city, attractions and airport. The good things is that other conveniences are just nearby. There's petrol stations, fast food restaurants, a mall & some Chinese restaurant. Upon checking in, the front desk was fast but he did forgot to write our room number for us so... More

From the distance it seems like an 80's building, but as soon as you approach the entrance you realize that is not the case. • Rooms: the hotel is pretty brand new, and counts with very nice sized rooms and impeccable comfort. • Gym: the fitness center has a wide array of both cardio and lift weighting equipment. • Breakfast:...

Definitely not kind of services I aspect for a Marriott Brand property. From check in to check out everything was disapointing. Booked 2 nights but decided to shorten to 1 night. Room and bed id confortable. Services needs to improve for all Ffrontdesk, room services and Maintenance team. However good job to concierge team - Great service. Keep up!
