Have heard rave reviews about their Thursday Hainanese Chicken Rice buffett but have yet to try. Rooms are spartan but clean and comfortable.Standard room has standing showers only.Amenties are available upon request.They have room... More

We needed to spend a night in JB before our flight out....so picked this up. Rooms were clean, b'fast was basic - but then we only paid like 30S$ for a room.....so didn't really accept much...overall a basic hotel that one can spend a night but nothing fancy. Also we were on the 18th floor and I could hear the... More

The layout of parking is so messy that you can't even tell where is the entrance. I was there last week and I enter the parking from where it "suppose" to be an exit. An uncle turn out with car no plate JLL .... (Can't remember ...) yelling at me in "English" I guess, "Cxxt" you see the no entry... More

Location is really great because its close to where the action is in JB. Easy walk to CIQ for trip to Singapore, easy walk to JB Sentral for buses (eg, to LEGOLAND and Hello Kitty World, JPO, etc), easy walk to Komtar and JB City Square shopping centres for cooling off and shopping. Can also walk to Jln Meldrum for... More

If you happen to be in Johor Bahru, Malaysia and looking for a budget hotel, look no further. This hotel is just right for you. It is situated right in the middle of the town and could save you a lot of money. You do not need to take any cab to go around the town since the hotel is... More

First and foremost, check-in already encountered problem as their system was not linked to internet. Then door lock was not functioning. Subsequently even wifi was almost non-existent at -90 dBm. Best of all, breakfast consist of fried rice, fried mee, potato wedges, ham, white bread, plain porridge with salted vegetables at RM$17.40 net. Apparently not my cup of tea.

Hotel is clean and the in suitable location. Service at reception is very good by morning duty staff but the night shift staff not friendly and the worst part is the poor service at restaurant. No proper cutlery arranged. Taking long time to clean the tables. Feel very uneasy when entering the restaurant because of the staff's behavior. The TV... More

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
