Stay in this hotel if u just want a room to sleep. For holiday - u can skip it.

Requested a non smoking room, had to change a few times to get a better room still with cigarette smell. So if u cant tolerate this, skip it!

Room is old and abit dirty.

Location wise - it's near the linkway to singapore, that's the only plus point.

Our favourite Indian food in Johor Bahru by far. This place is a typical Malaysian Indian eating place - half outside and half inside. Fantastic Tandoori set, Roti chenai, prarata and fabulous curries. All generous portions and great prices.

Room Tip: If you staying in the Bukit Meldrum can walk there in 10 mins - just ask the hotels. probably their...

Spent 2 nights in an executive suite near the top floor with a great view of Sembawang. Extremely well-equipped with microwave and fridge, etc. Very comfortable bed and the room was very quiet. Also spotlessly clean. Dining experience was not too great, many local dishes and the waitress soon got tired of explaining everything on the menu! Food I did select was fresh and tasty. Breakfast limited to fresh fruit and toast which suited me. Great bar/cafe on the ground floor with friendly staff. Good shops/mall within walking distance.

OMG! Beautifully maintained room!

How do I say this... I stayed in an Executive Suite on Level 9. The room was superb. Large Living Area, Large Room with a very comfortable king-size bed. There was also a kitchenette with a cooktop (if you want to do light cooking) and a microwave. The rate was extremely reasonable. only RM230 per night (via Agoda).

Parking is ample on 3 floors. Breakfast was superb. Lots of choices and delicious too.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to simply anyone.

A little tip for the management though....
1. Change the carpets in the walkway. Smell a little damp
2. Upgrade security as people can access directly to rooms via parking levels

Stopped by the hotel for a night during a work trip in JB. Arrived at night and had no problems checking in at reception, the staff was quick and easy. They require either RM100 or a credit card for the deposit if you have bought through other than their website.

The room itself was very clean and larger than expected with a big living area. Good view of the city, very pretty with all the lights. The bedroom was very big and comfortable, plenty of room despite the two double beds with a well sized toilet with a bathtub. Water pressure and temperature was quite good. Bedsheets weren't as fluffy as I'd like them to be, but of little consequence.

Breakfast was average - mostly Asian fare with small offerings of cereal and pastry.

A plus for free parking, the hotel offers multiple entries for free if you are a guest. Reception is professional and quite helpful. The hotel location itself is central to JB.

The toilets in the lobby hadn't been cleaned when I went to use them the next morning, which was a bit shocking. The other thing was the fact that there was construction that went on until midnight (for those planning a stay soon, maybe request for a room not facing the main street). Those were the only downside during my short stay, but was otherwise quite pleasant.

Was having 2 night stay at this hotel before heading to Singapore....... The hotel might look a bit old but still a great keeping interior the hotel. Well it is a walking distance toward the public bus area toward Singapore border. it took only 5 minute walk... i would said this is most strategy places if you would like to use public transport tour in Singapore.
