Baguss City Hotel
Ranked #52 of 109 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The hotel was a refurbished office building, thus, the layout of certain rooms was based on how the designer re-configure the rooms. I stayed there for a 3 day workshop.
What is good
1. The x-deluxe king room is of good size
2. Good choice of food for lunch

What is not so good
1. The flooring is laminated wood, and they didnt provide a room slipper. After a long day with sweaty feet, the feeling was definitely uncomfortable to walk around
2. No cupboard to hang your clothes. Instead, they provide a hanging track near the mirror to hang clothes. Positioning of the track near the mirror may inspire nightmares at night
3. Very cheap laminated table
4. Bed was set against a wall which is a thin partition. Noises from the outside corridor can be clearly heard and created vibrations onto the wall.

Room Tip: Please get the X- deluxe king room

I paid RM200 for deluxe room 512. Its quite spacious, compared to others (i refer to the escape route map). Staff quite helpful, except for the security staff which i first thought it was a statue, never ask if guest need assistants. No complaint of the room, but the flooring (artificial parquet) felt like moist and i dont know why. I had to wear the bath flipper in the room for the whole stay.

Breakfast was ok but some of the foods were not refilled. There is no non-smoking floor, so u have to get the staff to remind the smoking guests to keep their room door close. The smell gets to the room easily because the big gap between door and floor.

Very clean room at floor 19. Even the room is not so big, but it's good enough to me. Parking lot looks like so limited and breakfast is worst. Another thing is the staff not so friendly. This hotel can consider as a budget hotel as well even though it looks like 3 star hotel ( look at the building ) but there is no swimming pool. Quite bored because no activities for guest.

If you are looking only for a reasonable cheap and small room to stay overnight, this can be your choice. The room size is very small and the parking area is too narrow. The breakfast is just slightly below average. Not much food choice. However it's a walking distance to the nearby shopping mall and the restaurants behind the hotel. The room is clean and simple.

Summary - Great location, supercheap price (check around at booking.com and agoda.com), free wifi, breakfast included, free central car parking in the CBD.

Wouldn't advise for extended stays unless you are on a very tight budget.

Fantastic for supershort stays where you only come back to the hotel for sleeping!

We stayed in rooms 1801 and 1802. The rooms are neat and clean, but tiny.

A queensize bed, I managed to snare for RM 119 (about USD38)/night and the 2 single bed room for RM110/night from agoda.com. If you ring, the additional charge was RM 160/room

The TV played up, whereby all colours were washed out and in very grainy. In all fairness, it could have been due to the weather (as there was a big thunderstorm at the time). I don't know what it was like in the other rooms.

Buffet breakfast did not have much choice at all, but what do you expect for USD 30 bucks?

You could get wifi from my rooms.

I'd go back again, but only if I was in transit.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter...I suspect all the rooms are tiny!!!

We arrived hotel at late hours, the hotel parking are ridiculously limited (30 bays VS 200+ rooms???). We spent half hour for parking searching, eventually we gave up and so lucky that there is one place to park in front of the hotel.

The room is OK. Clean and simple. One reason being it is still new. Room cleaning service is decent. However, you cannot get extra towel (only 2 towels per room), they gonna charge RM3 each..

The morning breakfast is horrible. As we arrived late last night, only manage to wake up and go down at 10. The food looks like garbage, the milk looks like fermented, cutlery are oily. Staffs don't care about the cleanliness, they only do clean up after all guests had their breakfast. Totally disgusting.

WiFi is only limited for 1 access code for 1 room and it cannot be used at the same by multiple devices... Which is really inconvenient for us, I have 2 phones, my gf have 2 phones and I even brought my laptop...

Overall, I will not come back for this hotel.

Room Tip: Come early for parking...
