Dorsett Hotel Pelantong is now known as Silka Hotel. I just check out from this hotel today. The rooms are ok, but i find they need to add more lighting in the rooms. I do not find comfortable with very little lighting. The rooms come with 32'' LCD, study desk, iron, with 2 bottles of mineral water daily. One thing i must comment that their breakfast need improvement as the selection is very poor, and replanishment is slow, for the price we are paying with corporate rate of RM170. I still think that we shld have more selection of food. The worse thing is there a small flies landing on the Salads...sigh... how to eat them raw??? What a turn down.

I will think again if were ask to stay in this hotel again.

This is one of the most frequent hotels I stay in. Reasonably priced, decent food, and excellent location. The water pressure can be an issue on certain floors but it's not really and issue. It would be better if they could change the breakfast variety every mornings. Clean rooms and good room service. They recently changed the name to Silka Hotel Johor. Other than that, this place is recommended.

We wanted to stay away fm the city so we checked in dorsett Johor Hotel. Yes, service is good, staff are friendly. Comfy bed, safe hotel. The only setback is the toilet seat, dirty and stained. perhaps it is only the room that we stayed?

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.
