I went back to my home town with my family during the festive season, and managed to get this hotel at a reasonable rate. It is one of the earliest hotel in Johor Bahru facing the Straits of Johor. It is about 10 minutes drive to the Johor Bahru city centre. Currently, there is a new construction at the back... More

Basic room with amazing view and worth every ringgit you spend. No doubt they are upgrading now and you need to use the stairs. But trust me once you are in your room. The view are stunning amazingly good👍 Very clean room with simple toast breakfast😘

For the amount you pay, this is a good value for money hotel. Clean and basic room. No restaurants, pool, gym and the like. Don't expect some 5 star conveniences. The hotel shares the same building as a seafood restaurant. The 2 nights we were there, they had functions. Expect lots of cars in the open air parking. We stayed... More

It's our second time staying at this hotel and both stays were pleasant enough for us. We usually travel with our four year old and he loves his trips to the pool. Big note is there's NO POOL in this hotel. If you're looking for a nice clean place to stay with basic amenities this is it. There's a nice... More

The hotel and its rooms are very very simply furnished, nothing special and a bit expensive for what was offered. However the staff were friendly, and some laundry which we needed for the same day was expertly done and punctually delivered at the time promised. We did not have breakfast, so I can't judge it, but when we asked about... More
