New York Hotel
Ranked #46 of 109 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed December 19, 2009

These are some problems with the hotel:
1) Slow service at reception
2) No connecting rooms
3) Cannot change room preferences - eg change to a family room
4) Door access card doesn't work
5) Door latch spoilt
6) Slow response by maintenance/technical crew
7) Trainee receptionist plain stupid - doesn't know how to offer choices
8) Swimming pool too small and cold (cos indoor)
9) Swimming pool staff did not know how to enforce regulation on "should be properly dressed in swimming attire". Some people simply went in clothed in T-shirt and shorts
10) Cafe service slow
11) Grilled fish from cafe wasn't fresh
12) Cafe wasn't able to print out bill properly, and expected me to sign a "blank cheque" to charge to the room. When I stated that I would pay cash, the bill managed to be printed out nicely.
13) The entire hotel lobby was smoky - not healthy for children
14) Need to queue up for breakfast on a Saturday (peak)
15) Kettle is terribly old and doesn't work

There are still some plus points though:
1) Fruit juices and cakes at cafe are nice
2) Bell boys seemed more friendly than the manager
3) There is a mama shop at ground floor - can buy necessities and mineral water there
4) Big rooms
