KSL Hotel & Resort
Johor Bahru City Center,Johor Bahru - View on map
"There was a mistake in my booking & I realized only during check-in. However thanks to Agoda & KSL, I managed to resolve the problem & the staff who attended to me (tall Malay girl) was very patient & helpful. Overall, I enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Shopping is just downstairs. Breakfast was good with many variety on offer & helpful staff. Guests can rest at the lounge while waiting for check-in (brilliant idea - wish more hotels can do this!) Only grouse was the parking. I checked in on a Sunday & the mall parking was full so had to drive up to the higher levels. Small thing & did not in anyway affect my stay here. I highly recommend KSL Resort to anyone wanting a good hotel in Johor Bahru."

New York Hotel
Johor Bahru City Center,Johor Bahru - View on map
"New York hotel in Johor Bahru is conveniently located close to Singapore border. This makes the hotel a great hotel for business travelers or family going on vacation to Singapore but would prefer to stay in Malaysia. The rooms have recently been refurbished and its more modern and a more spacious feel. Amenities are plenty which includes an indoor swimming pool, massage center, hair salon and sundry shop which also has currency exchange if you need. Rooms are clean and staff are friendly and for those who drive, the hotel offers plenty of parking. "

Thistle Johor Bahru Hotel
Johor Bahru City Center,Johor Bahru - View on map
"thistle is our regular hotel in johor bahru, malaysia due to the value for money and hygiene level. location of hotel located on its own and if you want to travel out, you will need either your own vehicles or a cab. the bell boy would be more than willingly to get a cab for you at a charge of rm$2 (fixed booking charge of this rate for all cabs in johor bahru) room size (deluxe vs standard) all rooms are spacious as compared to other hotels i had stayed in. deluxe room have a bigger toilet but small living quarter whereas the standard room have a bigger living quarter but a smaller toilet size. hygiene standard rooms are pretty clean just that there are some bed-sheets that had stained in it; most probably they could not remove it. other than that, the hygiene standard is pretty good. deluxe room also come with an extra chair and the bed is way bigger. recommend to just go for the standard room which is cheaper if you are on a budget and someone who is going to spend most of your time in the living quarter and not the toilet and does not need the extra chair. room view the rooms are located too far away from the sea and the city view is facing a miserable highway therefore i’ll strongly recommend you to stick to the cheapest grade of room (standard room; city view) and not upgrade your room just for the sea view as recommended by others unless you do not mind forking out the extra money (pictures of the view are attached) *some sea-view room face the hospital and you will be able to hear the ambulance siren at night. i stayed at a pretty high floor room and yet still able to hear them. request for a room that is not facing the hospital if you are looking for some quality sleep."

Holiday Villa Johor Bahru City Centre
Johor Bahru City Center,Johor Bahru - View on map
"Simply one of the best I've experienced around the world, and definitely the best, the number 1 choice if you are looking to stay in Johor Bahru. Excellent location, just beside KSL shopping, of course you have ksl resort as an option which is located above the shopping mall, but the staff service is nothing compared to the ones at Holiday villa. The cleanliness, the room, the comfy bed, the infinity pool (as raved by many), and above all, the staff service was simply awesome. You can never find a hotel better than this in Johor Bahru, if not the whole of Malaysia, and beats alot of hotel hands down world wide. At an affordable rate of average $85 per night, you can have all the best sleep of your night. 5 star rating and recommend to all to stay here. "

Grand Paragon Hotel Johor Bahru
Johor Bahru City Center,Johor Bahru - View on map
"I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. When I checked in to the hotel, I just verbally requested the reception staff for a upgrading of the room and I was surprised that she willingly acceded to my request and upgraded it to a Deluxe Twin with balcony. The room was located on the high floor with good view of the Johor Bahru town. I wish to comment that the staff are really very polite and helpful and I will definitly return for my next stay or visit in Johor Bahru. "

Amari Johor Bahru
Johor Bahru City Center,Johor Bahru - View on map
"Stayed at Amari for one night with my partner and I must say the hotel's location is fantastic and ideal for a short trip across the Causeway. It is just a short walk from the Johor Bahru checkpoint and across the road from two popular shopping malls — City Square and Komtar JBCC. In terms of customer service, we had a pleasant check-in experience and received a free upgrade to a junior suite (we had originally booked an executive club king room). The room was spacious, comfortable and clean, nothing to complain about at all. The "pillow menu" we found at our bedside table was a nice welcome touch as well although we did not utilise it. Breakfast buffet selection was also quite varied and we enjoyed it very much. We did not manage to try the rest of the dining options at Amari given our short stay. While Amari's rates are certainly more expensive than the average hotel in Johor Bahru, I'd say it's worth the splurge especially if you're looking for a nice place for a quick getaway."

TROVE Johor Bahru
Johor Bahru City Center,Johor Bahru - View on map
"I actually booked this hotel for my parents and siblings who traveled to Johor Bahru. They were very impressed with the water dispenser provided in the hotel room. Besides, the staff allocated us connecting room which was ideal for us so that we do not have to leave the one room to go to another. There are some nice restaurants in and around the hotel, but the price would be on higher range. Overall, it is worth the money for a 4-star hotel!"

Suasana All Suites Hotel
Johor Bahru City Center,Johor Bahru - View on map
"Stayed for a night in their one bedroom, it was beyond my expectation and far best stay so far in Johor Bahru. Apartment is newly opened. The parking was quite safe and I can assure that - especially for Singaporeans who have second thoughts on parking their motorbikes in Johor Bahru. The security guards were very attentive, seen them doing round checks in the premises. The check in was swift and the rooms are really clean and comfortable. Check in time was at 3pm but we checked in way earlier around 2pm. Was issued a room key however it was not really ready when we were outside our room. Waited for 10 minutes to be in the room but it is fine for me. Location is good for solo travellers too as the hotel was just a walking distance to Komtar JBCC and City Square. There’s 7-11 convenient store just right at the hotel lobby in case you need to get something urgently. Now, the cons about the apartment was the parking you have to pay on your own. (It comes with a price I guess) And the major turn off - their housekeeper was very rude. Knocked the door several times at 10:45AM to tell us to check out when we clearly knew the check out time was 12PM. Leave that alone, the housekeeper repeatedly knocked the door again at 12PM SHARP. How intense was that. I dont remember requesting the front desk to get someone for my wake up call. She was also rude when we asked the other housekeeper to confirm the check out time. She gave us her unpleasant death stare and walked away when the other housekeeper was apologizing on her behalf. Very rude and unprofessional. I hope the management can look into this matter. Other than that, theres nothing much to point out. Will still give the 5 star rating! "

More about Johor Bahru

Johor Bahru is an important manufacturing and business hub for Malaysia just over the causeway from Singapore. This city isn’t known for drawing in droves of visitors, but it is a popular destination for Singaporeans, especially those traveling to shop. The city is served by both Senai International Airport and, across the border, Singapore's Changi Airport, and is linked to its neighbors via several arterial roads and sea ports. BR> Johor Bahru has several large malls, and as a manufacturing hub, goods are generally cheaper than in nearby Singapore. AEON Tebrau City Shopping Centre is a short drive from the city center and features several large chains and a cinema complex. Close to the Causeway is Holiday Plaza, offering discounted prices on electronics. Travelers can find handmade goods at the Johor Area Rehabilitation Organization Handicraft Centre.

When not shopping, modern and historical landmarks are popular sites to visit. A former palace, the Royal Abu Bakar Museum offers a glimpse into the lives of Johor’s royals within the grounds of a well-manicured garden. The Roman Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception, built in 1883, is one of the oldest structures still standing in the city.
