The lobby, room, swimming pool, gym room are aged and old. The studio room is big and spaced. Bathroom is just OK. There are some uncleaned dirt. OK to stay for short night. The sound insulation is poor. I can hear the noise when cars pass by.

The property is due for a major renovation. Absolutely outdated. However the staffs were extremely efficient and helpful. Ordered room service for banana splits and even the food presentation is so old that reminds us of the old hotels that we use to stay.

Situated on top of a hill overlooking Johor Baru but unfortunately old and worn out. Poor reflection on hotel management and owners who milk the hotel with no concern for the welfare of staff and guests. Old and musty means there are plenty of fungi spores floating around which is safety and health hazard for staff who are overexposed to...

However, only upon check-in we have been notified that there is a minimum check-in age of 21 which is not stated on our booking. When it is resolved...

The room is spacious and our kids love the swimming pool very much. The staff are friendly. It is very near to the famous Botak Asam Pedas restaurant and not far from Stualang Laut, therefore food is not an issue.

I had a couple from Australia checked in the Hotel. When I visited, the reception was decent. The lift was in a horrible state. I used my knuckle to press the 8th floor. It was stinking and stained. I managed to find the room. my uncle was in a fit. He ordered soft drinks for us at 5.30pm with constant...
