4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar closes around 8pm. It is a 5-10 minute walk to a bus or train across some busy roads. A multi storey building is being constructed which blocks your full view of the river - the noise of the construction was noisy. The views of the city and section of the river was... More

Easy to park. The location is close to Johor Bharu city centre. The food for breakfast is acceptable. Overall is good except: Strong cigarette smell in the room Its really annoying. The balcony's door cant be locked.

Even stay in Executive suite, nothing much to be spoken, except for the big space provided, but definitely is not properly maintained and inside one of the drawer, even have small cockroache corpse. Not worth for the price and not deserve to be 4 star

Essentially a budget hotel but tries to be something bigger (including the price) and failing, which makes value an issue here. The facade and the lobby area looked like a luxury hotel, and was pretty impressive. However, the rooms and the service, being the most important aspects of a hotel stay, is not that of a luxury hotel. Problem is... More

The price is not cheap, closing in on RM 300 per night BUT the suites in the round tower are very cool and worth the price. You have a kitchen area with fridge, microwave, and sink plus a dining area, a sofa and flat screen. Then there is a separate large bedroom with a king-sized bed and large bathroom with... More

First impression upon arriving the hotel main lobby was good as they have big lobby area. Check-in counter was a bit short of staff as I can see only 1 staff manning the front desk. Next off to my room, which was pretty big which I believe the room is also a connecting room. Toilet is big with the shower... More

Near the crossing no hassle to go there from Woodlands. Arrive very late at night (11.15 pm). The room service no longer available. To go to other shops it is quite far. We were extremely tired thankfully we brought maggie cup. Room is huge but one light in the bathroom could not be turned on. Breakfast is okay.

I spent one night in this hotel. Old and dusty room. Bed sheets and bath towels not clean. Feels more like a 3 stars old hotel. They should renovate and upgrade their rooms and equipment. The staff at the reception have an arrogant behaviour and wear dirty clothes.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all, they didn't know how many pax was in the rooms, there were 2 towels for three people when we called the housekeeping they wanted extra money for the towel. The shower felt like a car wash. This hotel made the worst hotel in Sri Lanka look like a 6 star.

Booked a weekend to JB and stayed in the Grand BlueWave hotel. Extremely conveniently located, less than 5 mins from the crossing. Price ok and very friendly staff, complimentary parking and including breakfast. We got a free upgrade to junior suite from the friendly lady at reception. If you have business around here, perfect location... If only...there were no cockroaches...Luckily... More
