Short stay just to get the feel of how it is. Rooms are clean likewise for their bathrooms. Aint too sure why some reviewers had issues with their cleanliness. Staff were not too friendly, perhaps it was the busy period of guests checking in and out. But that is just an excuse. Nothing much surrounding the area unless you take... More

My biggest concern during SEA travels is availability of Vegetarian food and this hotel ensured me that I need not look any further right after my check-in. Well, the list of baddies is not less because it includes everything from a rather slow staff in general (from front desk to housekeeping to restaurant staff) to tough-to-operate flush knobs. There was... More

Out of all our stays around jb, this os the best one yet. A hidden gem, with beautiful view of the straits. Didnt have nuch interaction with the staff but the room was just amazing. Such a waste Sofitel is not managing it anymore. Just wished the eateries around were slightly more accessible. Perhaps a stairs or proper walkway rather... More

I tried this beautiful hotel on 2 separate occasions... 1st time booking the rooms for my company corporate event. 2nd time my family staycation, together with my best friend's family. I enjoyed this hotel on both visits - beautiful white theme, best JB hotel swimming pool, corporate event runs smoothly, breakfast & lunch buffet are delicious too...

Room is still as good. Reception staff is friendly, efficient and very generous in their smiles. Two thumbs UP. Breakfast area has new layout which I think it is a good improvement. Food selection is about the same as previous visit. Poolside has too many 'fighter jets' which need attention. I just cant sit there any longer as they are... More

Had a vacation here during raya with families. Overall the room is spacious and comfortable. When we arrived the aircond had some issues so it had to be repaired by the worker. The service is fast however so we are not upset with it. The food at the restaurant is good (not exceptional) and you can get a discount during... More
