    Luxury at a tiny price”

    huge room with great double bed, lounge, tv, writing desk wardrobes, drawers, stone floor, aircon & ensuite. all for the same as a single bed in a dorm in singapore

    the hotel was absolutley fabulous for the price. staff were friendly but non intrusive. they only enter/make up ur room if u ask. kulai however is not a tourist destination & there is little to do unless u have ur own transport buses stop early as in jb. this is a great place to rest, recouperate, charge the batteries or have a romantic interlude. in the same block but facing the highway is an amazing steamboat restaurant. it is all u can eat from a huge range of veg, mushrooms, seafood, fish, meat, ice creams & juices(cordials) for only 23 ringet ($7 aus)

    Nice hotel within budget

    It's a convenience hotel to stay at when we want to travel around Kulai and Johor Bahru city. There are food stalls beside the hotel, so that we have no worries about hungry. Most importantly, the price is affordable to stay in the particular accommodation. Things go smooth on this travel.

    Value for money, clean

    i traveled to kulai last week with a family and we can't decide the place to stay.upon googling we found out about this hotel and booked a room through agoda. the rating is not impresive from the reviews however i'm attracted to the keyword "clean". well, enough said, the room is clean evnthough the hotel is quite old. the price is right for the location and environment. one thing to consider is the food. they do not provide bfast or dinner but they do have a 24hrs restaurant downstairs out of the hotel lobby. well, if you prticular about food, then you might think twice to have your meal in the restaurant.last but not least, i got to know there is a new hotel in kulai jaya, nouvelle hotel. looks nice n very new but the price is double.

    moderate rate of room

    We enjoyed our stay at City Star Hotel Kulai. It is convenience for us to "hunt" around for food where we enjoyed the famous Bak Kuk Teh near the hotel and local food in the hawker center. Other than that, we took a 15minutes journey on car to JPO where we did our shopping there. So, i think i had made a right choice.

    Clean & New

    Kulai being a small town closest to the new Johor Premier Outlet, without the need to enter JB town, makes this a booming town. So with the new small hotels such as City Star, makes shopping at JPO easier and even more economical. The hotel is not for the luxury travel where you expect swimming pool or health centre, but a spa/ massage centre is within the premise.

    The hotel was located in Kulai which was around 20-30 minutes ride without traffic to Senai International Airport. The problem is that getting a taxi is hard. I waited for one hour before there was a taxi that gets me to the airport.

    Comfortable beds

    We checked in at almost midnight but the hotel still hold the room for us. The room was a bit small for 4 but the queen size beds given were very comfortable. The toilet was clean and the water pressure was quite strong and it was so nice to take a shower after the long journey. The down side of this hotel is the TV channel which was limited and only TV3 was clear. The staffs were friendly. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this hotel and we would like to stay again if we ever go to Johor Bahru.

    Our stay in triple bed room was great although it is a 2 stars hotel. There is a 24-hour mamak stall next to our hotel, a massage chair, tv, mineral water and sofa on the first floor. Room is clean, they provided towel and 2-in-one liquid body wash attached to the wall. The only downside there are only 2 plugs/sockets in the room include the tv plug. I dont have time to try the wifi.

The only complain that I have is the TV channels which is very poor that we could not view anything. I hope the hotel will do something about this problem. Overall we were very happy with our trip to Johor Bahru and will stay at the hotel again if we are in Johor Bahru again.

    the hotel is easy to reach from johor bahru airport. the area around is worn down and noisy, especially, when there is football or cricket or something else shown in the restaurant downstairs. without a car you are lost there. the friendly receptionist mentioned a bus stop, but we ordered private drivers. once he couldn't reach one, so we walked to a big tesco, about 1km. not a nice walk though. the room itself was big and clean. had a big tv, water heater, 2 closets, a big comfy bed, clean shower and toilet. in the upstairs lobby is a water dispenser, again a big tv, tons of magazines.
