Pleasantly surprised with the hotel. Although I knew the room had no windows, it didn't feel claustrophobic at all. it was quite cosy in fact. Staff friendly and able. Swimming pool very nice. Gym would have been better with AC. Its only a short walk from the hotel to both - I don't see why some have an issue with... More

Its a nice place for a businessman who travel a lot like me. Comparing the room price, Silka JB d the most cheapest rate in any other hotels I've stayed in JB. The staff are well trained and very friendly. Will come again soon, and that's a promise!!

I stayed one night for business trip only. Frankly speaking, there is no other restaurants nearby, and the bathroom is relatively old although the living room is relatively big with an "iron" mark on the floor. The breakfast is just a simple chinese and western breakfast / buffet.

We are a family of 6 on a Hari Raya trip. Silka's main advantage is its location which is relatively near to my in law's house in Taman Johor Jaya. Breakfast-wise, you can't expect too much from a 3 star hotel but for such star rating Silka has a comparatively good spread of breakfast. There are cooking stations for egg... More

The rent was cheaper as compared to other three star hotels, the facilities were good, lot of parking space, rooms were neat and tidy. Friendly people. Recommended. Only problem is its a bit far from Johor city center. But if you have a car, its not a problem.

I have stayed here more than 40 nights ever since being transferred to JB to develop the business for my company. Location is good as it is near my office with good infrastructure. Car park is not good as most of the car parks at the back is occupied with buses. Staff are helpful mostly.
