“Nice modern hotel with a decent price”
Reviewed August 3, 2011

Good and clean place to stay for a night or 2 for short trip to Johor Malaysia.

We book a suite for only US$50-60 bucks. The hotel is not easy to find and the hotel shares the carpark with an adjacent building which is kind of dangerous as we need to walk.

Checking in is a breeze. Initial walking from the hotel lift to the room is kinda scary as the corridor looks old. However, the room is very decent. 3 of us stay in the room as there is an sofa bed on the "living" area and there is a sliding door to seperate the living area to the bed room.

The sliding door is not lockable though. There is only 1 bathroom in the suite.

They keep bothering me with "Wifi is chargeable!!!" Even though I've told them that it is clearly stated in the website (and even the printed out booking record from booking.com) the wifi is FREE! We stayed here for 3 nights, they stopped refilling the tissue paper in our room since the second night. They gave us toilet paper when we asked for tissue paper.

I stayed there for a night after my Kukup trip as I was looking for a hotel that is on the way and near to Tebrau Jusco.

I stayed in the Deluxe room without bathtub but overall is ok. The ony thing is that the fridge is not cold. Aircon is very cold and is adjustable.

Their service is good. Doorman is always at the lobby entrance there to open and close the door for you. They are not calculative, they place the welcome drink at the lobby allowing guests to help themselves any time and they do not charge my child for the breakfast.

The only setback is that their facilities is located at the condo beside it. We have to bring our own towel to the swimming pool and there is no hot water at the condo toilet. We have to wrap our kid with towel and walk back to the hotel quickly to prevent him from catching a cold.

It is located near tesco extra which is less than 5 mins drive away and giant 8 mins drive.

Overall was good during my business trip to johor. It was really a comfortable room to stay the entire time, but cleanliness was not done up to the mark. The room were tidy up but it was not so clean. Taman Molek is away by 10 mins walk where you can look for affordable meals and also some high end restaurants.

On arrival, i was surprised they have a pretty small passage way for cars at the entrance, it feels like a hdb block or maybe a condominium in sg.
however, on entering, the lobby was quite nice, and it makes u feel yup u r at the right place at a hotel again.
the service at the desk was fair and the staff were polite. we were not given the higher levels cos of the limited rooms available.

We wander our way up to our room and the corridors really feels like a hdb flat. On entering, the room looks dimly lit, with a small window allowing some sunlight in. The bed is really comfortable and the sheets look clean. The colour of the furniture, dark teak with whilte bed sheets makes the place looks bit classy.

the toilet is not too bad, with the 2 shower heads, one directly above head and the other one at an angle. Unfortunately only one worked and the other one doesn't. The toilet flush was not strong enough so u end up having to flush a few times to get it clear.

Breakfast was fair.. not much variety, and the egg section is right outside, and i almost missed it if i had not asked the staff, after all who will want to venture out when the weather is so hot.

Location wise, it's bit far from the causeway and the city square mall or holiday plaza. Terbau city is nearer and cost about 12RM from the hotel. Like what the others mention, swimming pool is actually at the next building, not much facilities.

Good for those who just need a place to rest at the end of day.
