Remote for air con was not working and staff were fast to assist. Stayed at level 2, paid a bit more and you get a nice view facing... 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

I've stayed at a few hotels in JB and this one has friendly staff and good restaurant plus plenty of parking space. Also the rooms are much much bigger than I expected. Prices are low and I'm glad its not a hotel where tour buses stay at. Obviously you have to go in with the right expectations, so there was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. For its price, the hotel offers good value. But rooms cleanliness should be improved and breakfast selection needs to be added too. Location is okay at the danga bay but quite a distance to the town center. A cab will cost around 10RM each way. Overall, an okay stay, nothing special.

Went to Straits view because of the reviews here. Was very disappointed. Room was average. There was a dead fly at the window and carpets were old and ratty. Air conditioner took a long time to start up. Location was inconvenient. No pool so brought my children to see the fish at the pond. Even that was a disappointment, water... More

I had to spend a night in JB, and looked up tripadvisor for hotel recommendation. Lo and behold, I came across the Straits View Hotel. Rated No 1, I decided to give it a shot. It was a major disappointment. A spider on the bed, leftover hair in the bathroom kind of sum up the experience. The friendly reception is... More
