Positive Reviews

Affordable accommodation

If you're looking for somewhere economical to stay in Johor Bahru, this hotel could fit the bill. Guests say its rates are relatively cheap on the whole.

Overlooking Singapore

Guests appreciate the location of this hotel, not far from the causeway to Singapore and near lots of food outlets. If you get a room on a higher floor you may even benefit an exceptional view of the Singapore skyline.

Friendly staff

The staff at the hotel are found to be polite and courteous. Guests recount that they always seem to have a smile on their face and are very helpful.

Negative Reviews

Getting run down

This hotel is seemingly in a state of decline. Guests say it is in more and more in need of an upgrade with the furniture and fittings getting old and worn out.

Could be cleaner

Guests have an issue with the housekeeping. The rooms don't appear to be cleaned very well and the toilets are especially dirty.

Poor reception

If you are looking to get online during your stay, there's only one place to be – the reception area of course! Guests say there is a very poor signal elsewhere in the building and none at all in the rooms. It isn't just the Wi-Fi that is weak, guests say they also struggle to get a clear television reception too.
