Nothing much to say, the hotel is dirty. Floor outside my room was so dirty, just curious they clean my room everyday but not cleaning the floor outside the room step. Dirty closet, dirty bedsheet. Not recommended at all. But this hotel has a nice view from high floor.

rooms and service was good, price is average and location is the best! if anyone intend to drive to Johor and visit Singapore on a tight budget, you can parked your car in the hotel as the Johor checkpoint is just 2 minutes walking distance across the road.

This may be the worst hotel I've ever stayed in - anywhere in the world. My husband, young daughter and I stayed here for 4 days-3 nights in September 2013. It was part business-part holiday. The room was paid for and we didn't want to incur extra cost of travel so we stayed put. I've rated this hotel very badly... More

Probably the worst hotel that i have ever stayed in JB. Not worth your penny though it has such a fantastic location. They are in need of an extreme makeover. Pity as the hotel actually is rather tall and view from the high floor is magnificent. I shall not even comment on the breakfast as we checked out first thing... More
