“Simple Boutique Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Room designed in Japanese tatami concept. Bed was comfortable and room is clean. The price was reasonable.

Bad points is that room is quite small. Can hear noises from the next door.

Overall, I still like this hotel because close to the shopping area, and will consider to stay here again.

The location of the hotel maybe a bit far off from the city (about 15-20 minutes drive) but it was chosen due to its proximity to my office.

At first I was a bit apprehensive to stay in this boutique hotel as it was located amongst the shoplots which had plenty of bars (giving me the impression it would be used for seedy purposes). However upon entering the reception, place looked really clean and nice.

It did remind me of some karaoke chain due to its interior design but hey, I'm not complaining.
The room I got for Rm160++ was a huge room, a suite if i remmeber correctly. Rooms were clean and the bathroom was huge. So huge it even had a Jacuzzi!, not a tub, but a jacuzzi!

Got a good nights sleep on the firm bed, which I liked and the check out was smooth as well.
Would I stay here again? Yes, for work, but if I were in Johor Bahru for holiday, this place may not be the first choice due to its location; but its definitely on my shortlist.

Room Tip: Any room above RM150 a night seems pretty good

Confirmed reservation before check in. Yet the staff did not hold the room unless paying higher standard room because they simply not paying attention to the reservation. The counter staff never admit their mistake of not reserving the room. The price was not an issue to me. However I hate the hotel staffs demonstrate an attitude that they do not care about it. I will never stay in this kind of hotel again without any sincere commitment to customer.

Our room is clean and well-equipped with air-con, tv, electric kettle and hangers. Unfortunately the water heater is not working well, hot water only available for a while and then turn cold. Lots of restaurants nearby. Simple boutique hotel good for short business trips.

Another unplanned trip see me back in JB and my partner decided to stay at this hotel. Check-in was fast, the front desk staff was friendly and the set-up and decor of the hotel is good. The room is quite spacious, clean with ample amenities. The bathroom is big with hot shower and all :)

Austin Paradise could have easily gotten a 'Very Good' if not for these 2 things:
1. Location wise, its a bit off from the main road so its not really accessible (we kinda stumble into it)
2. Noise from the clubs next door. It could go up until the wee hours on a weekend, so bring your earplug if you are a light sleeper
