Firstly, I am quite shock the star rating of this hotel in Google is categorized as a 1 star hotel.
This is easily at least a 3 stars hotel.

The first impression is good as the security guard immediately attended to us when he saw my car turning in to the Car Lift.
Yes, you did not see wrongly, the parking for this hotel requires you to drive your car into their car lift as the parking is in the middle section of the hotel.

My stationwagon fits in the car lift quite easily, the guard told us that Vellfire, Estima, all fits in too just that it is abit difficult to get in the lift.

Check-In was a breeze, room cleanliness is good, nothing to fault. Aircon is cold, shower water pressure is strong.

WIFI signal is ok. Lobby area is very nicely decorated too.

The location of this hotel is at Jalan Wong Ah Fook, which you should know is where the cafes, kopitiam, the famous banana cake are ~~, and it is near custom, therefore, getting to this hotel on a weekend night can be a challenge, as you have to drive past the cars aiming to go back Singapore. The road in front of this hotel is very busy.

There are no gym or swimming pool as it is a budget hotel.

This hotel is good for a 2 nights stay or max 3 nights stay.
However I wish the price could be cheaper as I paid SGD$100 a night.

Convenient location but not so ideal due to noisy location and a short unsheltered walk to nearest food. I requested for high floor quiet room after seeing reviews citing potential noise issue from night market. The room I was given was however facing the main roads/flyover so the noise suddenly got amplified late night early morning hours with vehicles (bikes etc) zooming past at high speed when traffic became lighter. I tried sleeping with earphones and music, covering my head with the pillow which did not work. Being a light sleeper and used to being unable to sleep well on first night away, it was still fairly frustrating. Will recommend hotel not to assign rooms facing the main road to guest asking for quiet room. Cos high floor or not it is going to be so loud. Facilities were satisfactory and the TV even can connect to YouTube and your own Netflix. Wifi works. If you are staying more than a night bring your own toiletries - I could not see much foam from the shampoo/shower gel. Overall, still a value for money spot and easy to grab to other spots if you do not want to walk to your next destination. The staff speaks great English and are generally cheerful and helpful..

Stayed 4d/3n on recent CNY holidays, location is very strategic, just about 5-10mins walk to City Square/CIQ. We stayed here and enter Singapore by public bus in the morning and come back at night. This is a good option if you don’t want to spend so much on accomodation in Singapore. Opposite the hotel is the Bazar Karat and famous Hiap Joo bakery. Can go near Hiap Joo bakery area (5mins walk) for breakfast, plenty of cafe and chinese restaurant there.
This is a 3 star hotel with 5 star in-room ammenities. Super spacious and clean room (Deluxe King room) with big smart TV to watch Youtube and Netflix, safebox, mini fridge, coffee table, hair dryer, disposable slippers, Morphy Richards kettle, complete toiletries set and a big king size bed.
Elevated parking provided, you need to drive your car into the car lift and scan your room card to access level 4,5 and 6 to the parking floors. Overall its great for the price (RM170 per night) and would definately come again.

I was recommended by friend to this budget hotel due to the accessibility of it’s location but it turned out to be a nightmare for me :
1. Poor sound proof between the rooms. If you happen to get a connecting room sharing with another unfriendly guests, you will not be able to sleep at night. My kids shared a connected room with another couple who came back at 12am drunk and talking loudly for next 2 hours. They had a sleepless terrifying night.
2. Poor housekeeping that can skip your room unknowingly. I told the reception on 2nd day that they missed housekeeping in my room at 5:30pm and they kindly took note and gave me assurance. But still no housekeeping at 10:30pm when we came back and the reason was housekeeper went back at 6pm. The receiptionists cum after 6pm housekeeper came back to provide fresh towels and supplies 30 mins later at 11pm.
3. During the check out, I gave the room keys to the reception and counted the number of keys given. But after I got back my deposit 15 mins later, the receptionist told me I missed 1 room key and charged me MY35. Facing the pressure of driver waiting for our family, I have no choice but to pay for this. Honestly I had travelled to many places and do not have a single history of missed placing my keys before till my horrible encounter at Z Hotel. The receptionist IRA was rude and service was terrible.
Overall I would never want to go to any of Hotels related to Z Hotel due to the terrible service experience I had encountered. Perhaps I ran out of my luck, but usually the receptions will be the one giving warmth to you in foreign countries but not in my case on last day.

Location was very good, can check in at 2pm which is great, room is spacious and clean, the bed is comfortable, toilet is good size.

Hot water takes a while and the shower gels and shampoo are very small bottles. Can hear the traffic but not big issue.

We had an enjoyable stay at your hotel. Hotel staff were helpful. Room condition was good.
However, Room 1607 glass shower door and toilet door design can be improved because this design is inconvenient for the user.
Room 1210 was much better.
Both aircon blower unit needs to be cleaned.

Z Hotel is relatively new. The room and bathroom were well appointed and comfortable.
It's position has pros and cons.
As it's quite close to some of the main highways, it can get some road noise (even on the highest floors). As it's close to Jalan Trus, and Jahlan Dhoby you can also get some late night market noise on Friday and Saturday nights as very often there is music.
On the plus side, those very roads have some nice cafés and it's walkable to JB Central and some of the bigger shopping malls.

The location is just opposite the immigration and the other opposite will be the night market and hipster cafes. It is a new hotel and room space is really huge. Nice interior. Room is fully equip with Air-con & Fan. Very modernise concept. 5 minutes walk to City Square. Highly recommended!

We had a great time at Z Hotel. The location of this hotel is perfect, about 15 min walk away from Johor Bus station and super close to the night market (literally across the street). Lots of food options around and most sights within the city can be reached by foot. The room was spacious and clean with a very modern look. The staff was really friendly and check-in process was super easy.
Would recommend if staying in Johor Bahru.

Nice boutique hotel. You need access card in order to enter the lobby which make me feel safe and secure staying there. Room was spacious, bathroom with Rain showerhead (which I like the most). The room came with aircon and also a ceiling fan which is rare to find.

Hotel is walking distance from CIQ, City Square, Komtar. Easy to find food all around the area.
Opposite is Bazaar Karat which is awesome.

Overall it is worth and value for money.
