We booked this room last minute (as in like only 2 hours before we reached the hotel), and it was more to a trip for my UK friend who came over to Singapore for holiday. Brought him around for food, massage etc in JB, and decided to gave this hotel a try since KSL was super expensive if we were... More

A 4-star hotel near the stulang laut with a short distance to Jb customs, city square and night bazaar. I booked a studio room which is very spacious and clean with free parking provided. However, breakfast buffet can be improved with more variety of food.

We stayed here one night and that was too long. I never leave reviews but felt others needed a warning after all the positive reviews. The rooms smell musty the aircon doesn't work properly and is really loud with large amounts of dust visible in the vents. The beds are old hard and uncomfortable as are the pillows. To top... More

I stayed in the SUITE room and still received really crappy service! As a couple who wanted a peaceful getaway from all the noise but still have access to great food (At City Square), I have mixed feelings about this hotel.. Pros: 1. Check in was fast, receptionist seemed polite and competent AT FIRST 2. Beds were fantastic, soft and... More

The Grand Blue Wave isn't really grand but our suite was huge and very comfortable. On the 17th floor we had a great view over the Straits of Johor, although the new building going up over the road will put paid to that. The staff are delightful, particularly concierge Romie. We enjoyed our three nights, even if the hotel feels... More

A beautiful hotel that is affordable and close to JB CitySquare Mall, however do not follow the directions given by Google Map as that is very misleading and you go one big route (25min walk) to reach the place. We got lost following the directions and instead found a shorter route to the hotel.

First time staying here, and probably the last time too, if hotel does not do any upgrading soon. Room was clean, though furniture were quite outdated. Bed was too soft that if you move, your partner would really felt it too. One of the TV was not an LED TV. If you need cutlery, you need to request from the... More
