Stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend. It's the type of hotel for the sake of having a place to stay sort. The rooms are pretty old school and it's spacious. The cleanliness is on the OK side. The plus point for this hotel is that it is near the bus hub to Singapore. The surrounding area is OK,... More

I stayed in this hotel 15 years ago when it was the Mercure, traveling to Johor Bahru for the weekend. This hotel is a lot different now, as it's age is showing. It doesn't seem to have gotten much of a renovation since changing names. Arriving after midnight is a good deal at 100RM for a Deluxe room. The lobby... More

Room was nice, big and good view.. but less amenities..especially bathroom..the pillow smell strange..there is few hair on the floor...anyway, its good value for money since its only RM100 plus per night.. Never expect so much..staff were friendly... Buffet breakfast just fine...not much selection and perfect location for the hotel..

When we arrived we were told that seeing as room before checking in was not usually done. We were glad we insisted! We were shown a room on the 11th floor and it was terrible. It had a terrible smell of mould and lots of dark traces of mould and humidity on the walls. It was very hot and humid... More

When we arrived we had to insist to be shown a room. We were told that this is not usually done but finally we could have a look. Happily - as we would never have stayed there, certainly not with our small children! The room was on the 11th floor and all that was great was the view. The room... More

We stayed for 1 night in August 2011. The first room we were given had a very very strong smell of mould. The second room were were given also had a mouldy smell, but was not as strong. It appears that the floors, bathroom sink and toilet had been cleaned. This is where the cleaning ended. Bathroom: The glass shower... More

The room conditions & view was ok but breakfast serves was not really into the standard. Not many choice & cold. Have to improve the breakfast menu. Anyhow, Front desk staff was friendly.

Me & my wife (Newly married), check into this JA Hotel on Apr 03' 2011. Lobby was fine, not up to that Standard. We check in around 12.30pm and I did a payment via Credit Card and I wasn't given any Credit Card Charge slip. Never mind.... Room key (1512) was handed over to us. We went up and open... More

Do not stay here if your hygiene standards are high. Everything is dirty. The moment I entered the hotel room, there was a cockroach on the cabinet. The sofa is an ugly sight, I didn't even dare sit on it. The pillow was DISGUSTING! It was smelly, and I caught a glimpse that the pillow is already brownish in color.... More
