Travel for Business, first time staying in Johor Bahru.. hotel ambiance was very nice.
Staffs are very friendly and super helpfull. Manager in-charge, Ms Faezah was very helpful and patient in entertaining all my request. Their rooms are very spacious, modern and the view was superb.
My friend told me not to dine in the hotel as the food was not up to the expectation...and he recommended for a "Seafood" at "Tepian Tebrau" about 10 minutes from hotel.
I was asking direction for that place from Indian staff Vikneswary, first time hotel staff recommending guest to dine in Hotel itself and promoted their own cuisine and brought me to try their cuisine in a Restaurant call "OASIS", thanks to her as I realy enjoyed my dinner and food was superb! Thanks again to her, instead of just giving me a direction to dine outside like what other hotel staff did in hotels which I stayed, these lady took the trouble to usher me to that Restaurant and promoting their own specialities. Try to dine in OASIS restaurant,no regrets for listening to her recommendations.
Breakfast was so n so, as my expectation was different as buffet spread with less choice. Waiter and waitress was cheerful with their big smiling faces, nice to see that in the morning
Overall I enjoyed my 2 nights in these Hotel and I will return again in March 2013.
Stayed on 4 January 2013
