Our entourage of 10 adults and 2 kids arrived Johor Bahru on 19 July with a planned trip to Legoland. Service started way before 19 July when I emailed Renaissance Reservations to find out if we could do early check in and room arrangements. Although hotel was not able to confirm because we requested to check in by 9am and... More

I recently visited the chinese restaurant and the food was amazing, especially the custard bun thingy (liu sha bao) I could eat like hundreds of it! The lady waitress served my table at that time (probably the manager as she was the only one wearing a jacket) and she was very good, very attentive and made my dining experience a... More

We were on our way to Singapore and had Dim Sum in your fine restaurant. The food is not only excellent but exciting and every bite was a pleasure. The whole experience was enhanced by the excellent service of your restaurant staff. Will definitely come again!

The hotel room is very clean and the food is fantastic. More for business travelers and couples though. We stay on the 11th floor facing the golf course. It is generally quiet but the slamming doors of the hotel guests interrupted our sleep several times despite it was close midnight. The staff were generally friendly and helpful.

I have stayed here quite a lot and always found this hotel to be one of the best in JB. The staff are always very friendly and make every effort to take care of guests. Rooms are new and always clean, bathrooms in good condition. Being a frequent guest I have access to the club floor which is always well... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights last week. The staff were very friendly. There was a decent variety of food during breakfast and it tasted good. The room was clean and tidy. However, when we entered the bathroom, we smelt a foul smell. While finding the source of the smell, we found out that the foul smell actually... More

Within 2 hours of my check-in, my mind was all made up to put thumbs down for Renaissance but by the time I left the place, I was forced to change that initial impression. I choose Renaissance totally relaying on the TripAdvisor rating as I was looking for a decent weekend gateway, not far away from Singapore. My wife is... More

Dear Guest, I must apologize upon reading that your check in experience was a terrible one. Having to wait almost two hours must be extremely frustrating and receiving service as such from a 5 star hotel must infuriate guests, and so I hope you accept my sincere apology on this. However, I am glad to hear that we managed to... More

Stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip. As Marriott Gold they already upgraded me to club floor and I enjoyed a nice spacious room designed in the typical warm colours of the Renaissance. The room was clean and there was nothing to be missed. The only downside was the smell that came sometimes from the drain in the... More

It is a nice surprise to find a real 5 star hotel in JB finally. Room rate was good value for money. We had 2 inter-connecting rooms and they were clean and spacious. Amenities was good too. We were particularly impressed with the service quality. One negative point is regarding the car park. We have to validate the complimentary ticket... More
