"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."

"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."

"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. "

"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!"

"I use this hotel since 2012 several times every year. Right now I spent five days and I have 25 (twenty five) days to go. Excellent service as always. Comparing with NOVOTEL Terminal 3 CDG airport France, Hilton Gardens in Gainesville Florida, HILTON in Saint John, NB Canada and Grand Bluewave in Johor Bahru Malaysia, Berjaya Hotel is heavily underrated with four stars.
