    Great location This hotel is located very near to eatery and walking distance to shopping mall. Although it doesn't include breakfast, there is a dim sum shop just next door which provides great dim sum for breakfast. There is a bar or pub nearby which their singing volume is loud. If you are a light sleeper, you might want to reconsider on this hotel.

    Spacious room. Double bed is big and comfortable. Perhaps, can looked into changing thin and stained towers! Or esp lady travellers might want to use own tower. Pillow has no smell, rather clean. Bathroom facilitated with basic normal shower, simple to use. Center location, easy to locate, between Sutera Mall and other shops.

    This hotel is getting old”

    I have been staying in Ample Hotel for at least 5 times for the past 2 years. From a okay rating, and now I feel it is definitely a NO to me for my next visit to Johor Bahru. The hotel is ideally located near Sutera Mall, plenty of restaurants range from Chinese, Korean, local coffeeshop, Japanese, Vegetarian, etc, there are also pub surrounding it, all within walking distance. The recent visit to Johor Bahru, I stayed here again, but found that, the towels they used are so old, and dirty, bed is old and soft, everything is just not to expectation like last time. Definitely will not come back again.

    The overall Experience is okay”

    Pros: The hotel is located at a very convenient area whereby all the places is walking distance especially local food. Cons: The receptionist is foreign worker and the service level could be improve, There's some check-in issue which I never experienced in other Hotel. It is a very small issue and could not even deem an issue, Yet the receptionist manage it in such a way as it is a big issue.

    The hotel price is really affordable, Near to the Sutera mall and located in the middle of cafe, bar and next to the foodcourt. I request for the high floor with window, they give us a big room with window facing to the alley. But if you come over the weekend, the high volume music from the bar is really loud at night.

    This is no my first trip staying in the hotel. 1) Staff demanded for RM10 tourist tax despite that I shown my Msia IC. 2) No receipt was issued for deposit, no IC requested for check-in for 3 rooms. But upon check out, I was astonished as no deposit was refunded to me as staff claims that they have paid to the first two rooms. 3) After a big fuss of questioning, I demanded for MOD number for me to call and enquires directly but staff replied..no number is available.. 4) Staff replied to me that they are not at fault but its my fault ...they are doing their job... that itself wrap up how 'good' the impression of the hotel left to me....and to other customer who may or may not experience it....

    We booked 2 superior rooms with queen size bed. When we checked in, the staffs told us there's only 2 single room left or ask us to cancel the transaction through agoda. But under the special conditions, we can't cancel the booking. We did ask for the balance since we stay in a cheaper room, but the staffs say they can't give us back the balance. Overall, this is my first time experience the bad booking system :(

    Location. That's about it.”

    In the centre of Sutera area. Decent clean.

    Essentially the old Kingston hotel, rebadged. Dated furnishing and shower. Good for stopover at the price. Security improved at night the auto door locks. So guests need your keycard. Step out and massage shops, F&B cafes restaurants coffee shops are all within 5min, 360deg around you. Be spoilt for choice. Go to Sutera Mall for supermarket and other mall stuff. If you're driving, park right in front, not guaranteed. Huge open-air carpark right infront of hotel anyways. My room faces Just Want Coffee (JWC) cafe, good breakfast place. Next door is a foodcourt and a Dimsum restaurant. Dun be shocked at night as the club opposite finishes their gigs at 3am.
