3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Hmmm... When booking I knew it was a bit far away from the city centre but I did not expect to live around at least 100 auto-dealers and next to a very smelly sewer...but 63 MYR per night is ok taken the fair room into consideration with perfect working Optic high fiber WiFi and air-condition
Be patient when you have to cross the road.. allow yourself at least 5-10 minutes as the traffic is very heavy and NO ONE has respect for pedestrians.
No facilities at the hotel what so ever... Not even a cup of coffee or a vending-machine with soft drinks but don`t worry as 7-11 and another "mart" is very near by.
Staff was very friendly and helpfull

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This place is absolutely awful. The location is far from town - seeing as there is not much public transport in Johor Bahru, if you aren't driving then you're stuck. It's across the street from karaoke bar - so don't expect to get any sleep before 2am. The daytime receptionist is okay, but the nighttime receptionist barely speaks a word of English - even checking with her was a mission. Towels were threadbare, and my bathroom had a permanent puddle of water because it can't reach the drain - this is disgusting when you first walk in. Yes, it's supposed to be a budget hotel - but I've seen better budget hotels.
