Worth every penny!”
Staffs here are really friendly and efficient, especially the male Indian staff! He always try to engage guests with small talks which is a really nice gesture :). Check in and check out process was also a breeze and staffs never fail to greet you with a smile. Belllo is also strategically located in JB Sentral. It'll only take about 5 minutes by foot to City Square Mall and Bazar Karat. There are also lots of famous cafes and shisha places around the vicinity. Do try out Restoran Ya Wang for their herbal duck! Was also pleasantly surprised to see a security guard guarding the hotel lobby. You know you'll be safe in the hotel when the front door is always locked and guarded. The security guard will also check with you your room number for safety purposes. For the price that I've paid, I must say that I'm impressed by the room. Bed was really comfortable, wifi signals were good, room was kept clean and shower pressure was strong. Hot showers, towels, dental kits, shower caps, bottled waters, safe box and kettle was provided. The deluxe room had a window that faces the corridor, but no big deal as it can be easily covered with the black out curtain. My only complaint of the room is that the soundproofing is quite bad to the extent that I was woken up several times by other guests along the corridor. Light sleepers do take note! Other than that, I'm more than pleased about this hotel. Even though it's rated a 3 stars hotel, my experience with Belllo felt more like a 4 stars. Would surely return to Belllo (and book better room) the next time I come to JB. Thanks Belllo!
Best hospitality experience, great staff and excellent service!”
This was my first time staying at this hotel in Johore Baru with 9 other family members from 6 ~ 10 February 2016, and it was a wonderful experience! Not only Belllo Hotel among many other budget hotels in close proximity, it is impressively new, clean, comfortable, great and convenient location with 7/11 next door, 24-hour food shops, shopping malls and checkpoint all within short walking distance; our 2016 CNY stay was perfected by the great team led by the Operation Manager, Mr. Kartikh Balakrishnan. Apart from the aforesaid tangible aspects, customer services and expectations are more important to excite our holiday moods and to make our stay exceptionally memorable and unforgettable! It is worth to mention that, it was terrible to call for taxi during the CNY. When Mr. Kartikh managed to secured three taxi to fetch us to our CNY eve reunion dinner, at last, the taxi driver broke his promise without informing the hotel and had phone shut off! Frankly, I would never expect a hotel manager would proactively fetching us using his own personal car to and from restaurants with multiple trips! He even firmly declined to accept our token of appreciation in lieu of the taxi fare we are supposed to pay! Caring, attentive and thoughtful customer service are what spice up our recent stay that are suffice to cover up other shortfalls if any. I would have no hesitation to return to this hotel again and would definitely recommend Belllo Hotel to all holiday-goers going to Johore Baru. Thank you, Mr. Kartikh, Ziera, Shah, Alice, Bryan, Sol, Devi, Sal, Mattias, Ioan, Ben and Awal who have served us well. Keep up the good service!
Belllo for Best Budget Boutique Hotel in JB 2015”
We frequent JB, at least once a month hence we are always on a lookout for an affordable yet pleasant stay and we have tried a few good and a couple of bad hotels. Dare we say this is by far the best budget boutique hotel in JB presently. Belllo is new, about a month young hence it is too early to give a fair review but we will be back to review it in 6 months and 1 year. We stayed in the deluxe room 306 which greeted us as we stepped out of the lift. The room was small but cosy and functional. The interior was sleek and contemporary with a window beside the queen size bed. There is a mini fridge and a safety deposit box. We love the rain shower. The air-con is centralized with a controller on the wall - choose "cool" mode, set temp to 23 deg and fan on high and unwind. The soft queen size bed was perfect for two and felt almost like we're floating on clouds. I think they used feather pillows; pillows were good but we had to fold them to be comfortable so we asked for two more. Singapore and Malaysia TV channels in English, Malay, Chinese, Indian and Cable TV such as StarWorld and HBO are available and most are clear. This is important because we love staying in the room. Check in and check out was a breeze. We were greeted by three different receptionists during the course of our stay, one of them was the manager and all of them were pleasant and nice. Even the security guards and housekeeping was smiling and friendly. 2 mins walk from the hotel is the the Meldrum Walk street food, walk 3 mins to City Square Shopping Centre and 5 mins walk to Komtar JBCC. Stay up late shopping at these two shopping malls or catch a midnight movie and not worry about catching a cab. We are very pleased with Belllo and look forward to make it our main stay. We hope that they will keep to their current standards in the years to come as many new hotels in JB are too quick to lose their touch and suffer many complaints from bad customer service to faulty and issues in the rooms.
Conveniently-located, near CIQ (customs), City Sq”
We stayed in 7 hotels in JB before. 3-star to 5-star. For hotels near CIQ (Customs), City Sq & Komtar, we stayed@Pan Pac, Doubletree & Belllo. If you don't need huge marble clad or tiled hotel lobby & staff remembering your last name & breakfast area with impressive decor, then Belllo is good enough. Its skylight which allows sunlight filter through that brightens the corridors leading to the rooms is something we like tremendously. Its provision: wall-mounted flat TV, fridge, safe, proper wardrobe with hangers, kettle, complimentary tea/coffee/mineral water, phone, ducted air con, rainforest shower, toiletries, toothbrush set etc etc. The new Schindler lift looks high tech and it's the same as the one in Bliss Hotel, Next to Belllo is a 24-hour convenience store and opposite it is a row of coffee shops. Belllo is 5-min walk away from City Square and 10-15-min walk away from Komtar. If you stay at Belllo, don't bother to drive.
Clean rooms; conveniently located”
All the hotels I had intended to stay in had cleanliness issues, except Belllo Hotel. Really lived up to its name (reviews). Probably one of the most conveniently located hotels (referenced to City Square mall), only marginally further than a few hotels that aren't quite as clean and popular. Staff were friendly and polite, never failing to greet us each time we went to and fro the lobby. Would have been a perfect place for me if it had a gym. My only other complaint will be that the fridge is barely cold. Left a drink overnight and I thought leaving it out would've chilled the drink better. Otherwise, the hotel is adequately equipped and well-maintained. Absolutely pleasurable experience for me; truly value-for-money. If I ever were to stay in JB again, this will definitely be the place. Thank you, Belllo Hotel! :)
A delightful experience!”
Our stay at the Belllo Hotel JB Central was a very good one. We particularly liked the design which let natural sunlight in when we exited the lifts to go to our room. Both the front desk staff and security guard were very friendly and professional. The room was very clean. It had a 40 inch Samsung TV which allowed HDMI connections. There's a small safe as well. There's also a rain shower head apart from the regular hose type. Its location is very good. 5 minutes walk away from City Square Mall. A street away from Meldrum Walk hawker/street food. A 7-11 is right downstairs. Across the hotel, there're coffeeshops and shop houses where there're plenty of local food.
New hotel, excellent staff, comfortable room”
We stayed two nights at the Belllo Hotel JB Central as a first stop in Malaysia coming from Singapore. The hotel is not too far from the central station and the bus stop, so we walked over on arrival. The hotel is brand new and the staff was very friendly, professional and helpful: they are very proud of their hotel (rightly so) and they are eager to help. We asked for restaurant recommendations and they walked us around the neighbourhood to show some places. There are many restaurants close by, you'll always find something that pleases you, and the shopping malls are close, so you can go for some retail therapy as well. The rooms are brand new and very clean and comfortable. Excellent stay!
Travelled for a day trip to JB, and wanted somewhere to rest in between shopping and cafe hopping. Belllo Hotel was in the IDEAL location for our needs. Walking distance to City Square, the Bazzar and so many local eateries around. The hotel room itself was clean and very cozy. The bed was amazingly soft and so so comfortable. We initially planned check out around 12-1am the next day to head back to SG, but we lost track of time and missed al transport options. We ended up checking out around 2am and was stranded for abit. We immeditately called the hotel and asked if we could check back in and the front desk staff, Bryan, was so helpful and allowed us to do so. I would like to extend a big thank you to him!! We were able to sleep and rest before checking out again at 6am to head back home. The security staff working that night was also so friendly and really gave us the sense of safety. Overall the experience we received from Belllo Hotel was more than what we paid! Thank you!
A gem for budget travelling!”
Belllo hotel may seem unimpressive from its exterior, surrounded by older buildings but what greeted us were warm hotel staff as well as a good night's rest. This is especially so when we were on a budget and did not have much expectations of an accommodation we paid cheaply for. Security and cleanliness were our top priorities and we were shock by how strict the staff were to non-guests. They ensured that people who enter the lift are hotel guests and for those who were given access by the guest, they would phone them to confirm their identities. Bed sheets were clean and amenities were simple but well maintained! Would definitely recommend Belllo hotel to others, location was awesome and food & entertainment were just round the corner (JB City Square, Jalan Dhoby, etc.)
Cosy hotel with superb bed and linen”
My one night stay at Belllo Hotel JB Central is great!! The location is good for those who need to travel to Singapore the next day as it's just next to the Malaysia Custom. Although the area during night is a bit dodgy with many homeless and beggars sleeping at the corner of every shops, still safe to stay in Belllo Hotel as the main entrance is locked and security will be there all the time. The interior of the hotel impressed me and the cleanliness is good!!Will be coming back to this hotel again！！
Free WiFi is one of the facilities travelers are looking for nowadays and it is SUPER FAST too 😊”
Good location, convenient store just next door and local food stalls across the street. Johor Bahru City Square shopping mall within walking distance. Friendly and helpful staff. Super fast WiFi 😊 The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, only that the room was a little bit too packed for two adults.
Perfect Location and definitely worth the money”
The hotel is located in the heart of Johor Bahru which makes it very accessible. There also a lot food stalls outside of the hotel and beaide is a 7/11 store so just if in case you need something to eat or need something for your needs you can easily buy it from there. The room is very well maintained and very clean. The outside of the room has that European or Mexican feel because of its design and interiors.
Great Value & Service”
It is back to basics with Belllo hotel. I have worked for luxury hotels over at front desk, housekeeping and F&B in Singapore. Belllo left me with a great impression, proving that budget hotel with great value and service still exists today, which I feel many other properties ought to reflect. I find the overall experience has been finely tailored, Belllo Hotel has invest money in the right places, from the lifts to the fittings, little details that make difference in the stay. Initially room was stuffy but a room switch was given immediately without need of much explanation and waiting. This was not the same case when I stayed at a 5 star renowned hotel over at KL which I was simply made to wait and given donkey reasons that a Guest should not be put to go through, kudos to Belllo Hotel team, with special mention to Shazher which we met at the front desk. Thank you Belllo team!
Convenient location, new hotel and so much food around”
The hotel location is 10 min away from city square mall on foot, very straightforward route and convenient. Hotel looks pretty new; everything works perfectly and toiletries are provided. This is the best (read: not dodgy/old) hotels in this area which is within our budget. There are many more grander hotels in JB but for this price and location, belllo is amazing. Right in front of the hotel entrance is a lane of food choices, with even more popping up in the evening. To get to the hipster cafes at jalan dhoby, just cross the main road and everything is within walking distance. Really recommend this hotel and I will definitely come back for another stay!
Great hotel in Best location. ”
Walked the short tourist haven street and chose Belllo Hotel. Wise choice. Super clean. Out the front door and it was practically Food Street. Seafood was fresh and cheap. Check out the duck specialty restaurant to the left. Best I’ve had. Hotel’s location was at JB City Center. Super convenient. Enjoy!!!!!
Normally i wouldnt really expected much for such a city hotel but this is hotel deserve a recognition. Staff are very polite and helpful with whatever your request was. Room is clean and spacious. Very well located in the heart of Johor Bahru city, mins away to City Square, Johor Bahru Immigration, Baazar Karat and few eating places just on your doorstep. Would definitely recommend this hotel
Food and location”
If travellers are looking for a basic stay and near to all eating place then this is the answer. Its situated near to city square and also near the Johore Bahru Customs. Food can be found 24x7. There are also some nightlife around this place.
VALUE OF MONEY AND EXCELLENT SERVICE”
First, I must say this is an excellent hotel which deserves more than a pat on the shoulder! I stayed from 06-08dec and its only at the last minute - on 05dec late afternoon that i emailed the hotel to request for a birthday cake. To my surprise; they took note of this last-min request and even decorated the room with balloons and gave my friend a nice bouquet of flowers and a whole cake! ALL the staffs I've met are sincere and always wit a smile. The location is great too! You just need to exit from City Square office tower; cross the road and you will see a Citrus Hotel, walk along the left lane into the row of shops and within 3mins you will see Belllo hotel. Its next to a 7-11. Its also close to those cafe hopping places along Jalan Tan Hiok Nee - probably 5-8min walk? Just look for the OCBC building and walk towards there! One thing to take note is probably the shower head holder. It does not allow the shower head to be tilted which makes bathing a little difficult. Also, the door does not seem to be sound proof? I could easily hear chit-chats outside the room early morning which can be quite disturbing. Other than that all is good!; beds are clean and you have all the basic necessities. Its definitely VALUE FOR MONEY!
Overall we had a pleasant stay in this hotel”
Belllo Hotel: The best part of this hotel is the location. Very near to JB Central, City Square & Bazar Karat. Short walking distance around 5-10mins walk. The room is a bit small but its ok for us because we stayed for 1 night only.
great place to stay”
the hotel is good, the room is clean and comfortable. there is no hair dryer in the room, but upon request they gave me one. everything is fine. The karat bazaar is nearby this hotel.
