Great location, a short walk to City Square Mall. Gorgeous pool and gym, the only downside being that they are not open 24 hours. The best aspect of DoubleTree is their staff. One of my travelling partners experienced an unexpected slipped disc - which meant immobility due to the severe pain. Needless to say, being in a foreign country with an injured companion was unexpected and I was at a loss for what to do and how to seek treatment. I then called Reception. The DoubleTree staff came up within minutes with a wheelchair, and a few of their staff wheeled my companion to the nearby hospital for medication and an x-ray. As they understood the gravity of the situation, they automatically extended our check out time and, upon request, helped arrange for economical transport back home. DoubleTree is a gorgeous, new hotel with wondrous amenities. However, their staff is what makes the hotel - sincere, caring service which befits the "Hilton" reputation and far exceeded my expectations. Needless to say, the next time I return to Johor Bahru, I will be staying at DoubleTree again.
Warm, Friendly Hotel”
Kudos to Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru. My partner and I had a wonderful 2 days stay at the hotel. We were checked in to a smoking room although i have specifically requested for a non smoking room. When this was highlighted, immediate reassurance and action was given and we were transferred to a non smoking room on the day itself. The room was aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. The staff are always smiling and looking for ways to assist. Also had great dining experience at Tosca - love the ambience. The only one negative comment is on the water heater - it somehow can become either too hot or too cold and can't seemed to 'normalize' or 'stay' at the temperature set. All in all, a wonderful experience and will definitely return to the hotel.
First staycay in JB”
My hubby and I stayed at Doubletree by Hilton JB from 24 to 26 Oct 2019 and I had no regrets choosing this accommodation for our very first staycation over in Johor Bahru! Room was super clean, spacious and the staff even presented my husband a cake for his mini birthday celebration! Our room was located on the 15th floor and facing the pool - I am happy with the view too! The breakfast buffet, as many have commented, was delightful (a wide variety of food were made available for guests). We will be back for sure, thank you Doubletree by Hilton! :)
Good over-the-weekend staycation”
Had a great staycation at doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru! The location of the hotel was pretty convenient. It's just a 10mins walk from City Square. Checked in after 3pm and was very pleased by the service. I was served by Azwan. His service was superb. In fact, all the staffs in the hotel are full of smiles. They are very friendly and hospitable as well. We booked a King Guest room, I must say the room was fantastic - Clean and luxurious. It is also v spacious. Breakfast at level 1 has a wide spread of selection - from Malay, Indian, Chinese to western breakfast. However, the food is not quite up to my likings. Still, the breakfast was good. Overall, I will recommend this hotel to everyone. This is especially good for couples. The service and quality is top-notch. Will definitely revisit when im back! Thank you for the great experience!
The hotel was great until I took a taxi.”
I stayed in Double tree by Hilton Johor Bahru for 3 days. Room was very clean, and well-organized. Staff were very helpful at first. However, something wrong with the shower booth, and water was leaked from the booth, I had to clean up every time I took a shower. Also, I asked how much I had to pay for taxi from hotel to airport. All the staff guaranteed that it would only cost under 50. When my friend left early I could meet my taxi driver. And he told me it will cost 100. So I asked concierge about this again, they guaranteed it will cost under 70. So I believed what they said. For the last time, I asked about price to the staff before I left the hotel, and she didn't really replied my questions, and seemed like she didn't really care. When I get on the taxi, the driver changed some kind of setting for the meter, and he said the price is more than 100. I believed the staff and concierge, but the driver ripped me off. When I got airport the taxi price was almost 110. I ended up paying everything and very disappointed. If all the staff doesn't guaranteed about the price, I would have catch a taxi by myself. But they guaranteed about the taxi driver, and taxi price. I think I asked about taxi price several times but no-one told me it will cost almost 110. I probably not gonna stay in this hotel again because I cannot trust staff, concierge, and driver. Last impression is important as much as the first impression.
A very beautiful stay!”
No cons! From the welcoming upon arrival, the check in to the staffs to the room to the pleasant surprise and also not forgetting to the spread of a very fabulous breakfast, everything is so beautiful. Definitely this stay is not going to be my last time. Worth your every penny! Thank you so much Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru for this amazing stay even its for a night!
Excellent and superb ”
- Location is very close to JB city square. very convinience due it is a a walking ditance (Approx. 200 m). However, during our stay, the road still under construction. - The hotel was very clean and meeting my expectation. very comfortable to stay. - Staff: The hospitality was very excellent from all the staff: receptionist, waiter, house keeping staff, kitchen staff, and other staff we've met there. - Food and beverage: The Makan Kitchen restairant was excellent. wide variety of food was serve there. From local food, oriental, and western food were serve very well and the test was also thumbs up. we have ordered in room dining several times. the taste and the service were outstanding. very recommended. - Facilities: Free wifi was not available at the guest room. we were very disappointed to know this. Currently, wifi connection is a standard facility in the major and well known like Double tree Hilton. Another Cons from this hotel was the guest parking was not free. The charge is reasonable about MYR per day. However, i was expecting this should be a privilege for in house guest. Hopefully, this suggestion is accepted by the Double Tree Johor Bahru Management. The size of the swimming pool also small. with several guests swimming at the same time then swimming there no longer comfortable because of limited space.
Fantastic Service at Doubletree Hilton JB”
We were 3 adults and 2 young children having a night's staycation at Doubletree, the service by their staff totally amazed me and I forgotten that I'm in Johor Bahru, they were smiling from the point I touch down from my cab, the door men, reception staff etc.....we were given 5 warm cookies, snacks and welcome drinks which exceeded my expectations, I think they deserve a 5 star for their hospitality! As for the breakfast, they have a wide selection of food, however I noticed that some of the cooked food had turned cold and hence it doesn't taste as nice. Hope the hotel can take note of that. Otherwise, I am very impressed with this JB hotel and would love to have my staycation there again.
Lives up to the Hilton standard”
Hotel is conveniently located within 10-min walk from Johor Bahru City Square & Komtar JBCC & quite easy to find. Room was modern and spacious with comfortable twin double beds. Room amenities were well-maintained. Probably the only grouse was we only found out that we could get other types of pillows by calling the Care Line after 11pm, and there was no one to pick up the call when I tried calling. So we had to make do with the overly-soft and flimsy standard pillows in the room. Our room booking included breakfast at the hotel's Makan Kitchen and we must say it was a wise choice. The breakfast buffet spread was really scrumptious, and were of good quality too. Really an enjoyable meal to start the day with. Make sure you allocate enough time for breakfast!
Good hotel, convenient location in Johor Bahru”
- The hotel is within walking distance from City Square shopping mall and CIQ. The location is very convenient for those from Singapore taking public transport to Johor Bahru. - Hotel's staff are polite and professional. - When you are checking in, you would be given a packet of warm biscuit, which taste pretty good to me. - Swimming pool is rather small but good enough for playing around with kids. - Steam room and Jacuzzi are good. When I visited last Sunday afternoon, they were empty, and you can have your own private Jacuzzi, which overlook the city. - King room with view is clean, however, only partial view of the straits of Johor as it is blocked by other tower. - Good selection for breakfast. - The Italian restaurant on 13rd floor serves generous portions with very reasonable price. The ingredients are fresh.
One of the most exceptional hotel in JB”
I have stayed in many hotels in the Johor Bahru metropolitan area over the past 20 years and I have stayed in all the big names including the medium ones, but I must take my hat off to DoubleTree Hilton as the most exceptional of them all. From the check-in to the room the experience was seamless and the staff were simply professional, warm and friendly. In any case it is worth the money spent! When I stayed they had some problems with air-conditioning which I am sure has been rectified since though I will say they have limited parking at their hotel.
I went to Johor Bahru with my mother. She can't really walk and we need a wheelchair Value for money - the room is slightly smaller with the price published. But, the services and food provided are extremely good. Location - It is not a problem for me as I am driving there. However, it is very near with the immigration place - as my friend came from Singapore and they need only 10 minutes walk to the hotel. Overall, I felt this hotel is convenient. Cleanliness - very clean - good! Staff - very attentive and caring. They will assist where ever you are in hotel. As I told earlier, my mother need a wheelchair. I've requested upon I reached at reception counter. They check out immediately if they still have wheelchair for me, fortunately yes. They push the wheel chair near to my mother and assist her to get into wheel chair. Moreover, I've ordered room service and told them my friend's birthday, they also top up with cupcake for FOC. Very good! They also very warm welcoming their guest. Feel very comfortable and nice. Facilities - Pool is small. We need to pay for the car park, although not really expensive. Restaurant - food is delicious and a lot varieties. Worth to purchase room and breakfast together. Overall, I am satisfied with this hotel. Recommended for good service hotel.
Upper class hotel in Johor Bahru”
We booked a package from Singapore to Mersing jetty to Tioman Island from Travel Delight. On the way back from Mersing jetty to Singapore, it was a very long drive, so wI decided to take a rest by staying the night in Johor Bahru before continuing the journey back to Singapore. Doubletree does justice to the Hilton name.
great hotel with a great city location ”
This hotel is within walking distance to johor bahru city square. Since it is still new everything is in great condition. The lobby is minimalist design yet warm. Drinks are also served there. Not far away is the main dining area, but the food is not great. The selection for breakfast is great, but lacks flavor. The gym is small but adequate and open 24 hours. the pool area is very nice but not meant for laps. The rooms are a nice size and nicely designed. But hotwater is only warm. Yes I would recommend others to stay here.
Good for staycation”
The room is clean and tidy. Good view of the parts of Johor Bahru. Walkable distance to City Square and Komtar Shopping Centre. Is the opposite of a row of shophouses that sells nice local food. The breakfast buffet spread is amazing! Impressed with the number of selections, freshly squeezed fruit juices upon ordering and free flow gelato ice creams. Variety of food changes too! Nice room that is clean, facilities in the hotel is adequate. Also, loving the fresh baked cookies that were given upon check-in!
Best hotel in Johor Bahru ”
Very slow check in, we were only checked in at 5pm despite reaching at 2:45pm. P.s. Official check in time is 3pm. However, the staff made up for it by giving us late check out. Great spacious room, good rain shower n nice amenities. Hotel in room dining is great. attentive n polite staff. Good breakfast spread. Don't feel like Johor bahru at all. Walking distance to JBCC & city square & CIQ. Point to note: in room wifi is chargeable.
Best hotel in JB”
After staying at a handful of hotels in Johor Bahru, I feel that Doubletree is among the best. Cookie and lounge upon check-in, clean and modern rooms, walking distance to City Square Mall, I would definitely stay here again the next time!
Wonderful stay at Doubletree”
The hotel is situated near JBCIQ. Very near shopping malls and bus stations. There are convenience store & restaurants infront of the hotel. We booked a room in the 26th floor so we had access to the Executive Lounge. My booking did not include breakfast,but in the Executive Lounge there's a small breakfast buffet, free drinks the whole day and cocktails (dinner for us because they also have rice) from 6-8pm. So it's really worth your money. You can walk from JBCIQ to the hotel, around 15minutes, the only problem is the on-going construction of the road at the back of Komtar mall, there's no pedestrian lane or a stop light, and so you are forced to ride a taxi for your safety-only RM8. Everything in the hotel is great, and unlike in other hotels, the staff here do not wait for you to give them a tip. And after a tiring day at Legoland, Doubletree made our stay in johor relaxing. We'll definitely stay here again if ever we visit johor.
Hassle free stay, almost perfect!”
Everything you need in a basic and relaxing vacation is provided here. What stood out for me and my friends was the jacuzzi inside the facilities restroom with the stunning view of johor bahru skyline, which we really didnt expect. Another thing to consider when booking this hotel is the variety offered for the breakfast buffet. Worth every penny. We will definitely go back here and recommend to friends. Just a note: Deposit of 150 ringgit and 10 ringgit hotel tax is required upon check in.
Excellent hotel with awesome hospitality”
this is my 6th time staying in Doubletree johor bahru. the reason why we keep coming back is because of the staff. they are very polite and helpful, and will go the extra mile to make you feel at home. shout out to duty manager Tammie who made our trip a memorable one.
