“Why everybody hate this hotel ? This is a good hotel, my thought”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

less than 10 minute by cab around 5 pm from crossing the bridge from singapore, I arrived at lobby hotel. It was nice lobby, no problem with any carpet and got quick check in process. No bell boy helping, my luggage was not too big tough. Got room deluxe standard at floor 16, it was smoking floor. They got 2 floor non smoking rooms. All room circleing balcony hallways, so we can see floor 11 (gym spa & indoor swimming pool floor). I believe all rooms got windows with surrounding Johor city view. Got single king size bed, looked clean, bathub with broken plug mechanism (you should tie a thread to the plug so that you could plug out manually). All lamp & AC control panel next to bed, the room is quite big: about 2,5 - 3 m from your foot lying in bed to television table. About 3 m from your bed to the biigggg window .. quite nice scenery of Johor at night. All inside minibar (3 snacks and 2 can of drinks + 2 bottle mineral water) are free complimentary. Got tea+coffee set with water boiler, 2 relax sofa, wiith coffe table where I relaxly browsing internet & watching TV. The internet is paid WIFI, got 4 bar with 20 RMS for 24 hour. You could negotiate for cancelling the paid internet if the connection is not good. At front of hotel along the street full with mostly foodcourts, car maintenance accessories and washing shops, beside other shops. Less than 15 minutes walking to Pelangi Plaza, a 4 storey departement stores, got Metro, McD, Cold Storage-which selling pork and alcohol at one of its corner, apparel, pharmacy, IT phone PC and optic beside watch store. Steam, Sauna & whirpool is out of service, indoor pool is verrry cleaan! Size not big but .. clean. I can see clearly when i gone dive below. No noise at all I could hear from floor 16. It is a good good hotel compare to its price. Plus ... its receptionists are very nice ... could talk in english and malayu/indonesia well.

Stay for 2 nights at the hotel. First impression towards the hotel is good. Location is at the center of JB. Near to The Zone and Woodlands. Many restaurant can be found near the hotel. At night you can eat at Simple nasi lemak and in front of the hotel Banafe Restaurant.

The rooms comfortable, cosy and spacious. Bathroom clean. Staff are helpful.

Breakast provided from 6am-10am.

For those who drive, no need to worry on the parking, since there provide many parking for customer.

So overall, will recommend the hotel.

checked in the hotel rather late during a weekend getaway party with friends. the check in is quite fast and the staff behind the counter is very polite. the room is rather spacious and cossy however channels for tv is rather limited. the bed is comfortable enough for me to fall asleep quite fast and the toilet has a bathtub! its a good point as i like bathtubs :) however the breakfast is quite limited as quite nearly can't get any seats.

will like to stay there again. overall experience is very good.

The check in process takes more than 30 mins as the manager first cannot find the booking details from the system and then don't know how to use the check in system...really don't know what to say..

Booked 2 rooms at this hotel in July 2010. I have to say that was the biggest mistake of my life ever. As you step into the hotel, the whiff of stale hotel carpet will hit you immediately. The counter staff are friendly and try their best to check you in as fast as possible.

As you enter the room, the second wave of stale hotel carpet will hit you again. If you are not suffering from severe breathing difficulties by now, the lingering pungent smell of cigarette smoke will make certain for you, this is the last time you stay here.

That was only the beginning of our nightmare. As we took the lift to the car park for dinner, the lift malfunctioned and rose all the way to the top floor and stalled. We rang the emergency bell and the technician responded rudely and unreassuringly. They reset the lift system about 5 times. Each time causing the lift to jerk and wobble horribly. My parents suffered sudden shock to their neck and spine because of it. We were trapped in the lift for almost 45 mins.

When we complained to the front desk. All they could say was be lucky you are saved. No official apologies from the management. The manager on duty refused to even see us.

Stay here only if you don't treasure you life!!!!!

Room Tip: To get the best room from this hotel, stay somewhere else!!!!

I reluctantly booked this hotel after Grandblue Wave was fully booked.

Nothing has changed since I last came here.

A "facelift" was done on the room, but the feel is still the same. No change on the toilet.

Had to call 2 times to get the iron.

Went for breakfast at 9am, food is almost finished.

TV reception is very very very bad. Could only watch a few channels with poor reception.
