Comfortable, cleanliness & Friendly staff

I felt very comfortable when staying at Amansari Express Hotel for family room. I will recommended for family members and friends to choose this hotel when they coming to Johor Bahru. The location was good, near to the checkpoint of Singapore. The room was big, cleanliness and very nice. I will continue to stay at this hotel again when i coming to the Johor Bahru & Singapore for the next time.

Location, Quiet & Nice room

We go to Johor Bahru with a group of six people so we order two family rooms. The rooms have a nice design and the furniture are well maintained. The family room is quite spacious for three people. The location of the hotel is behind another big hotel so it is not easy to find for some taxi drivers. Its location though is near the city center and very near City Square mall and Johor Bahru bus station (to go to Singapore). Overall it is a pleasant stay for all of us

The Air conditioning is icey cold. The WIFI here is really fast and you can connect anywhere in the hotel with full bars at fast speeds. Better to stay here than the Hotel Sentral across the street as everything about Erica Hotel is better except for room size. One of the best budget hotels I have stayed in hands down!

Weekend escape to Johor Bahru”

Usually for those living in Singapore will go to Johor to enjoy cheaper food, shopping and services. It's quite tiring so we decided to book Erica Hotel to rest at the end of the day. It's quite decent for 23sgd, it's clean, big bed, enough space to move around. It's just the location since you have to walk for 20 mins from Central Mall to get there, though GRAB is cheap, 6 ringgit. We might look for something closer next time but if there none I'm sure we will still book Erica.

We'll definitely to choose this hotel for our next visit for sure. Why? The reason is very obviously. This is a budget hotel, but is a perfect hotel. The location is awesome, we easy to access to every where of Johor. The hotel nearby so many good restaurants is very easy for travelers to look for nice local food. The hotel staff provides fast and prompt service, even check in time was quite crowded but they also handled very well. They are willing to help if hotel guests need them. They always smiles and greets guests. We felt warm like home.

Just OK”

We came to visit Johor during the CNY . The Front Office Staff were busy coz it was CNY and is a peak time for all hotels not just in that area. They are friendly too. However, we were checked in late due to the rooms were not yet ready even +/-45 minutes after the check-in time. One of the Front Office Staff apologized. However, I will think that the peak seasons are expected every year and as such proper management of time / staff and delegations during these peak times are critical. Late clean ups could have been because of late check outs which are possible due to the fold overs of the same reason the days prior to our own check-in. This affects other guests and the brand (if the brand is important to the business). The hotel was humble and small compared to the others near or around it. but it is clean in the rooms. I wish that they added a nice bar or a karaoke bar for entertainment or pleasure, a small convenience store too (or they should consider these in the future).

If you want a hotel in JB town centre then Erica is a great location. For the price that you pay the rooms are clean and functional. Please bring your own toothbrush and shampoo. Other toiletrees are provided like shower cap. Breakfast is just sufficient. You get fried rice and noodles with fried egg or fried chicken. Porridge with condiments are also available. Bread with butter and jam are provided. Surprisingly the coffee was good. All in all a good 3 star hotel.

LOCATION”

I like the Erica Hotel because it is centrally located, and easy for me to go to the places that I wanted to go too. Cleanliness is ok. And the hotel is adequate for a few good nights' sleep. But I would like to lodge a complaint and I hope the management WILL TAKE NOTE. The guy in charge of the parking lot is downright RUDE and BOSSY. He told us off because he said we 'did not register our car with the reception' and should not park our car in the limited parking lot. Excuse me, it is NOT my fault that the receptionist did not ask us for our car no. Further more, I have stayed at Erica Hotel many times before, so they should have my details on record anyway. Despite staying here many times before, this is the first time I have encountered this problem. So, management please have a word with this 'parking manager' and ask him to learn some manners when dealing with hotel guests.

Sensibly priced hotel”

I have stayed in Amansar (previous name) and the current Erica many times. The hotel is generally clean, comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a nice spot away from the hustle and bustle of the JB city centre yet it is nicely located and easy to get to by car or a Grab taxi. There are food trucks that operate opposite the hotel and this is a welcome treat. The hotel needs to improve their television quality where the pictures are at times unclear and fuzzy. The car park is fully packed if one needs to park within the designated car park area. The floor needs to be cleaner as there are specks of dust and debris in parts of the room. I am likely to stay here again before the end of this year, and hope there will be improvements based on this feedback. Overall, this hotel is sensibly priced and I find its pricing policy very appealing.
