One thing about hotels isn't just about the stars. The over all preferences of individuals are equally important. The hotel provides busing service out from the hotel every 2 hour. I didn't try it, but it seems ligit. The standard room is large, but not optimized somehow. You will know after your check-in. One small gift store is available on...

This is a nice looking hotel both inside and out, the rooms are clean and spacious and it's in a great location. You are within 20min walk of the ZON and JB sentral. They will organize a taxi to the JPO and the city center without trying to rip you off which is refreshing in JB. The breakfast is good...

We booked this hotel thru Flight Centre as they didnt have many JB hotel listed. We wanted somewhere central. The hotel was fairly central and we could walk down town in about 10 minutes and a taxi back was only about 5 ringgit. ($2) The beds were fairly comfortable and the aircon worked as it should. We were a family...

Just checked in the hotel. There was a bit of delay as the room I was staying wasn't ready yet. After 10 mins of waiting I finally got my room but was still awaiting for room Key to be sent up. So I waited in my parents room, which is the one next door, while waiting for key to be...

The price of the hotel was reasonable/ mid range. Upon checking in, we got upgraded to a suite, which is always a pleasant surprise. The suite has a living area and a separate bedroom Overall the hotel is a bit dated, but not bad. Cleanliness was good. Breakfast is decent. Convenient location.

I used to stay here regularly but alas age has caught up with the hotel. The staff do try and accommodate especially the senior ones but sadly it's not enough. The towel was atrocious, the soap , smell in the "executive room" needed tremendous douse of my perfume to be bearable. Stayed at the 9th floor and the whole night...

The room was certainly not what we are used to but as I said in the title you get what you pay for. The pool was nice but the rooms did not live up to the photos at all. We only stayed there due to being fairly close to the Zoo but we should have invested extra time to look...
