Hotel RIA
Ranked #93 of 109 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This place is absolutely awful. The location is far from town - seeing as there is not much public transport in Johor Bahru, if you aren't driving then you're stuck. It's across the street from karaoke bar - so don't expect to get any sleep before 2am. The daytime receptionist is okay, but the nighttime receptionist barely speaks a word of English - even checking with her was a mission. Towels were threadbare, and my bathroom had a permanent puddle of water because it can't reach the drain - this is disgusting when you first walk in. Yes, it's supposed to be a budget hotel - but I've seen better budget hotels.
