Hotel Grand Paragon
Ranked #20 of 109 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Came for a night stay and was given a room just next to the lift lobby on our floor. It was a rather awkward layout as the proximity was like a few steps away from the lifts. However there was not much noise except for the occasional talking of guests waiting for lifts.
The room is generally small but if you are just here to spend the night after a day's trip/work, it is actually fine.
We have a leaking shower head that drips all night. Might be a problem for those who wake up at that the slightest noise.
Spa opens till late around 11pm and the harmless-looking aunties masseurs were just GREAT! She managed to ease all my knots during my 30min foot massage + 30 min back / shoulder. You can get a 10 ringgit discount voucher from the front desk upon check in.
Breakfast serves a decent varieties of local delicacies and be sure to wake up early as it gets crowded on a weekend by around 8am.

I just stayed for one night in this hotel which is seems to be a slice of China in Malaysia (which is absolutely fine by me).

The rooms are fine, not too elaborate with a decent bathroom and comfortable bed. Check in and check out were handled well.

It appears to be a very busy spot, a real tourist hotel with lots of floors and acres of corridors. Dont expect royal treatment here but as a base in JB its fine.

One thing I really liked was the good wifi access in the room.

This hotel had very large rooms. The price came with free breakfast which was excellent. Lots of variety. It is an easy walking distance to shopping centres and there are a number of money changers just down the road. The staff were friendly. The pool had a nice view of the town although it was lacking in lounges. The staff are happy to call a taxi for you as there is no public transport close by. However, taxis are cheap.

Room Tip: We had a room on the sixth floor looking out towards the causeway. We had no noise problems at all.

Had a pleasant stay. Upon check-in was attended by Trainee Santesh who was polite. Room was spacious and comfy. For a smoking room there was no after smoke smell which was surprisingly good. Breakfast was also complete. Swimming pool had a nice roof top view of the city.

Only thing is the bathroom was not well lit and there were stains on the bathtub.

Had a pleasant stay at this hotel thanks to my colleague's recommendation. Price wise is not too expensive around RM 2xx which includes fridge, satellite TV & Complimentary breakfast and WiFi service. Uses high tech modern security smart card to activate the lift and unlock your room so you can have a piece of mind. My bathroom was so big it could accommodate a small party in it. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I ever visit JB for business or pleasure.

Sorry for another late review. Was there in the month of March with my family as visiting Johor Legoland. The reason we chose this hotel was just because it offered a package (Accommodation + Legoland Tickets). The distance by itself is far from Legoland. Regarding "what Grand Paragon can offers" - basically the only difference of this hotel from Tune Hotel is..this hotel offers Legoland tickets (at that time) and breakfast. Other than that - I see it just like Tune regardless of what its name maybe...

Anyway, it is not a bad hotel tho. Breakfast, clean and near to a shopping mall known as KSL. Can give it a try...=)

Stayed one night at this hotel few weeks ago, generally is good for me.
Good spread of breakfast just that it's abit crowded. Room are spacious and clean. The receptionist are very helpful managed to let me have two connection rooms as I've booked 4 rooms total which is convenient for group of family members staying there. Only negative points is try not to stay at too high floor as the Karaoke and late night activities at the Sky lounge on the top floor maybe too noisy.
