Was in JB for one night, arrived late and this hotel presented itself in front of us. The rates were reasonable at first when we asked, but upon setting our foot in the room, we thought it was not worth the money. The rooms although quite huge, were nothing to shout about. In fact, I got a smoking room (and I didn't as for one) and the smell of lingering smoke filled the room.
The bathroom was small and hardly have any place in the toilet area. Toilet fittings were broken, they didn't bother to fix them back. As we arrived late, I was quite tired and did not have interest in turning on the miniature TV affixed on the wall. And when we woke up next morning, we rushed to check-out of the hotel.
Parking was near non-existent, as we had to park at the mall's parking and paid a hefty fee. Otherwise, you can park on the streets but risk having your car stolen during the night.
Only good thing about this hotel is outside of it. It is near to many good eateries. Getting around JB is also easy from here as it is almost in the heart of everything. Will I stay here again? Probably not. For the price of this hotel, I could probably find better if I booked earlier.
