Nice hotel of an avarage level. Simple room with it small flaws... Just take it as is. Nice and friendly staff. Outdoors you have plenty of restaurants and street food if you do not like the restaurant of the hotel. I had a pleasant stay in the Grand!

Was staying here for 2 nights in early June. Felt, the rooms need refurbishment as it looked rundown and carpets are wet at certain area of the room. Felt uncomfortable. Request for change of room, but not available. Occupancy looked ok, This mean the business are good.

Check in was okay, staffs were okay, room was grand. One bedroom suite with full kitchen and living room area was impressive. Really wanted to bring whole family next time. Tho internet access was not easy, WIFI was strong enough and loved wide bed and window. In room facilities looked little out dated but gave very cozy and town-home-like mood.... More

My family would visit this hotel when we have a long weekend since its only an hour drive from our place in Singapore. Great service and they offer an array of selection of food for breakfast. Also close to malls in Johor Baharu. You can also see Singapore from this hotel.

Was looking for another average priced hotel with some facilities. Room is comfortable, with full amenities and clean. Breakfast was quite good. Nice pool but no sun lounger at all! Gym - not well maintained, few pieces of machines are out.

I got an upgrade to the executive suite but I'm not sure if I appreciate it. The room reeked of cigarettes from the old carpets and furniture. The TVs had poor reception, the toilet paper holder came off the wall, the shower handle came apart, the shower head was broken, the toilet reeked of urine (possibly from poor plumbing or... More

The room wasn't fully prepared. When I checked in, the front desk officer asked me to call the housekeeping to get towels, where I think that she can just call them on my behalf. Things that I liked are the swimming pool and the breakfast.

Location of the hotel was good : very close to JB Sentral station (Approx 400 mtr) From JB Senai airport it was around 35 km. The hotel property as such is pretty old and the rooms are not refurbished for long time. The floor carpet, sofa, bed everything looked relatively old. Food and the bar were decent. We had taken...

The hotel is located very near to exit/entry point between Johor/SG. It's very near but not directly inside the city center hence less hectic and it's a lot quieter. Plenty of parking lots inside the hotel and room comes with wifi/cable. Breakfast not great but average.
