Hotel Selesa Johor Bahru
Ranked #78 of 109 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Stayed a night on business trip. Room furniture very old. Still using those bulky tv. Wifi not free (most hotels at jb got free wifi) Do not worth the price paying rm150++. Can get better hotel nearby that worth the money. Highly not recommended to anyone that need a stay at jb.

Room Tip: Hotel overall not worth the price

I get good service from the staff. However conditions in the room was quite dirty, dusty, smelly and uncomfortable as weeks not cleaned. Torn sheets and rust in the bath tube. No free wifi. Halal food nearby and within walking distance in approximately 15 minutes. Free breakfast provided quite tasty although not much choice. Narrow parking space. If I wish to go to Johor Bahru, I certainly will not be staying here again.

I stayed there in January 26 - 28,2013. It was great to stay at the Selesa Hotel for 2 Nights...... overall I am happy with my room and breakfast they provide ...... though it is not a new hotel ... it has all the facilities I needed :)

I can rate it a very good hotel, considering its rent ......... I enjoyed the breakfast and swimming pool ....

My expectation was not that high as a result I enjoyed my stay in the hotel ................

I can recommend you this hotel for your stay, considering the money you will pay

This is an old hotel. Carpet and furniture are old. Elevator is musky. Check-in is a breeze but front desk personnel seem to be incapable of answering touristy questions. They were very helpful though and even arranged for our cab ride to Legoland. The room we got is on the 24th floor and has a nice view of Singapore. The sheets seem worn-out and have a couple of human hairs stuck on them (yes, look very closely at the light brown fuzzy cover, quite revolting, really. I don’t even want to mention the type of hair we found!) – we quickly requested for new ones. No towels so we had to request for them. Hot shower and tub ok. Bed is comfortable. The only nice thing going for this hotel is the buffet breakfast, but few selections. If you are on a budget and want a centrally-located hotel with breakfast, best to look elsewhere. Good thing we got this at a promo rate at 325 MYR for 2 nights.

Check in was fast and hassle free. Hotel is clean. Very good hotel for a short stay after shopping at Johor Bahru.
Wifi network is chargeable and slow.
Stayed in the executive deluxe room. Room is clean and huge. Lots of space to move about.
Nearby local eateries and shopping malls.

This hotel is always fully booked despite pathetic staff and world war 2 room interiors.
Reception: The staff think that the customer owe them a living. Created receipt Rm300 but
Key in Rm 400 in credit card.
Rooms: No remote control, no towels,no wifi,bathtub with paints peeling off
Breakfast:I prefer Hotel Paragon breakfast

Room Tip: Don't ever stay in this hotel

We stayed in Superior for 2 nights, after we check-in (we booked online) run smoothly but there is a little misunderstanding between the reception desk and housekeeping, , the reception desk allow and say the room is ready and we go to our room, but when we go to our room the housekeeping would cleaning up the room, so we have to go down and wait in the lobby for 15 minutes, while we waiting in the lobby they give us welcome drink. We used too hotel’s business center for booking flight and printing the ticket, great facilities with high-speed internet connection, after all we enjoy our stay . The PLUS: Room is wide with bathtub, Breakfast buffet with various choices, Swimming Pool for kids and adult, French Bistro Chez Papa in a walking distance The Minus: Co-ordination and service need improvements, the location is a bit far from Johor Bahru CIQ/ Kota Raya bus terminal / JB Sentral so we have to take taxi.
