I have heard so many times that Classic Hotel is "the best hotel in Muar". Too bad for Muar. This place was so dated! the tub floor was so stained. The water from the tap was brown making showering seem like a waste of time. Breakfast is not included but don't worry, it is terrible unless you get there early... More

As the name suggests, this hotel hails from a bygone era, but is not out of place in a town that has not changed much over the years. If you manage your expectations: do not expect flat screen TV, multiple cable channels, great wifi; this is a perfectly comfortable and convenient hotel. We were in Muar for a friend's wedding,...

This Hotel has probably seen it's best days, supposedly it was full when we arrived but i hardly saw a soul. We chose the most expensive room recognising (hoping) there may be some secret luxury lurking within the seemingly grand establishment. Initially things were promising huge reception, airy and nice AC. However our executive suite didn't quite hit the mark-... More

Some people told me Classic Hotel is the best hotel at Muar but the rooms are very old and smells smoke...Because you can smoke in all rooms... Staff is ok and nice.I don't think it's four stars standards.

As Muar goes this is best hotel. You have to realize you are not in Singapore or Kuala Lumpur so expecting a 5-star place is unreasonable. This hotel however does have friendly staff. The rooms, albeit somewhat old (example tube televisions, and decor) are up-keeped reasonably well. The aircon was effective, maid service was prompt and diligent. I have definitely... More

Gave me smoking room when I specifcally asked for non-smoking. TV was not working at all. Light switches mixed up. No bottled water in the room even though it was stated in the check-in form. Ok because of the limited choice in Muar. Avoid if you can.

We have relatives here and come to Muar often. We have stayed at many Muar Hotels but this Classic Hotel is still the best. The rooms and beddings are clean, staff courteous and friendly, and the price is reasonable and competitive. Breakfast is optional. Only 3 negative points 1. Dont ever stay one level below the Ballroom as it will... More

I come to Muar on a pretty regular basis for family business and Classic Hotel has always been my choice. I've tried another hotel before but this one is a better value for money. The room and bathroom is clean. The location is also very convenient as it is located beside a mall, which means easy access to food and... More
