Not much to do at the hotel besides sleep..location was good though. Very close to the city by car. Overall i would not complain for the price i paid and would consider this hotel again if...

It is basic but very comfortable - good comfortable bed, great air con, good shower and clean toilet. It even has a view of the Straits of Johor! A short distance from downtown...

This hotel is one of the old hotels in Johor Bahru, but it has been renovated recently so all the facilities are new. We booked the Deluxe King Room. The room was clean and very spacious. It had a spectacular view of the straits, you can see Singapore from your window. It was also overlooking a garden. The bathroom was...

I went back to my home town with my family during the festive season, and managed to get this hotel at a reasonable rate. It is one of the earliest hotel in Johor Bahru facing the Straits of Johor. It is about 10 minutes drive to the Johor Bahru city centre. Currently, there is a new construction at the back...

For the amount you pay, this is a good value for money hotel. Clean and basic room. No restaurants, pool, gym and the like. Don't expect some 5 star conveniences. The hotel shares the same building as a seafood restaurant. The 2 nights we were there, they had functions. Expect lots of cars in the open air parking. We stayed...

“The rooms are quiet enough but get rooms somewhere in the middle as this is a low rise hotel, most patrons will use the stairs.”
