Room was given on the 2nd floor facing coffee shops,quite noisy as the people downstairs never sleeps. Mineral water, shampoo, toothbrush was provided. Good place for short stay. Counter staff and security staff very pleasant.

Picked Belllo due to its ridiculously cheap price and decent interiors. Check-in was swift and the place was really easy to find from CIQ. Walkable distance. The place has a couple of floors so they've got an elevator. Quite convenient though it isn't keycard activated so it's not as secure.

The room is basic enough. But there are a few things to point out:
1) Really noisy and cold air conditioning vent
2) Lacked hair dryer, couldn't dry my hair
3) Lacked toiletries ( had to go down to ask reception and they will provide)
4) No phone to call the reception, don't expect service.
5) Bed is a little soft (though thick)
6) Basic cable TV, no Netflix.

However the location is great, near City Square mall and many shops. The sheets were clean and our neighbours (if any) can't be heard through the walls. There are no pests and is generally clean. Hot showers, towels and complimentary bottled water provided. There are obviously user stains around the room but it wasn't too terrible to be a cause for concern.

So if you're tight and on a budget, Belllo is a pretty decent, 3 stars hotel.

The main reason was to book this hotel it was the only hotel which I saw as the nearest hotel to JB Sentral with possible check in until 12am. We were travelling from Singapore and it was around 10 am when we reach there. Because we had another plan on next day, we spent few hours only this hotel but it was so good. You have lot of local eateries around this hotel. The room was bit small but it’s okay with this price. They provide you the all most all the basic toiletries, amenities and guest suppliers. If you are looking for a budget hotel in JB with access to JB Sentral and surroundings, I think this is a good option you can consider.

My husband and I so totally enjoyed our 3-night stay, very pleased to have discovered this lovely gem. Very well kept room and bathroom, clean sheets and towels everyday. Overall, the whole hotel was very clean. Staff is very polite, friendly and helpful - from Reception, Housekeeping to Security. Thank you all , keep up the good service. We had a cute little room, enough for 2 of us, (like who goes on holiday to stay inside the hotel room?) Definitely recommend this Belllo Hotel anytime.

The eateries outside adds to the charm of Malaysian lifestyle. Nice and convenient, plenty of choices ..... although some coffe-shops should consider a good cleanup.

I elected to stay here for a second time, after a good experience in Dec 2021, h cycled the length of Peninsular Malaysia for a second time. In 2021 the staff were very accommodating, especially with my bicycle. This time was even better. Not only were all the staff very helpful again, Brian (who was on the front desk) went above and beyond what could ever be reasonably expected. When the front desk was quiet he helped me enormously by supporting me to wrap my bike for travel, a job which can be done by one person, but is considerably easier with two. It is small but important acts of kindness, where great staff like Brian look for opportunities to help that mean I will continue to use, and recommend this little, and lovely hotel. The rooms are also very clean and the location is great. Thanks Brian, your help is much appreciated!

We booked the suite and were delighted with the big beautiful room. But room seemed dusty (as if it had not been use for a period of time). We had aircond issue, the room was warm and stuffy and we had to change to another room. Overall we loved the stay and staffs were very friendly and helpful.

Answer from SLF283

No, there is no carpark at the hotel. There is a public carpark opposite the rows of shops behind the hotel. This row of shops is facing the main road and the public carpark is besides the main road. However, you may want to note that this carpark is used for the night marker at night.

No, they do not have. However, according to the staff, they do have a family room that is big enough for 4pax. Other rooms are too small to even put in an additional roll-away bed.
