An excellent Hotel in Johor Bahru. Since I had plans to fly to KL from JB, it was so convenient for me to reach the airport. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. The courteous way in which the staff at the reception answered makes me give full credit to the Management.

Been staying here since the 90's, when I was a wee child. Didn't change much except maybe it was green-themed back then (last stayed maybe in early 2000s) and recently changed to red-themed. I got the double queen bedroom, which is spacious and nice for my wheelchair-bound mom. The room rates are cheap compared to other nearby hotels. Walking distance... More

I stayed in this hotel just for two nights on a tour through Malaysia from Singapore. It was 5 minutes (taxi ride) from the taxi drop-point where my Singapore taxi left me. The hotel at the top of a tall tower in the mid town part of Johor Bahru. Reception is on the ground floor and was fast and efficient... More

The online internet price was so attractive. Be prepared once you check out there will be a lots of extra charges, from government tax, service tax, front desk service charge and also guest parking need to be paid. seem like i was been cheating on this. Better walk in to get a real price.

The hotel is very old its time for renovation. room was ok and the breakfast was very simple, not much variety. But if you just need a place to sleep this hotel is ok. I don't think I'm going to stay there again next time.

Hotel room is at stand still from 1980s. Definitely needs refurbishing, not only fresh coat of paint, furniture & fitting look tired. Location is good, walking distance to Sentral bus station, few malls minutes away. Given room facing Singapore a plus. Breakfast so simple.

The hotel seems pretty old and badly need renovation. The carpets are musty and food is much to be desired. Staff is not very efficient or very friendly. They expect you to pay every room service bill by cash!. Try this place if you are looking for a economical hotel with limited services.
