Thumbs up!”

I travel to JB once a month for a short getaway, n GBW is the perfect hotel for me in terms of: 1) The rooms are big n spacious; even for the lowest category room, Deluxe. My fav is the studio room (and executive - HUGE!) 2) Room rates are very reasonably priced (for their spacious rooms) 3) The hotel staff are very friendly and patient and are always there to assist. 4) The hotel lobby (next to the recep desk) has a convenience store! Drinks, snacks, toiletries/basic necessities, common medications (panadol, meds for stomach upset, backache patch, etc.), cigarettes (smokers are in luck! ;) Lol!), etc.. 5) Location is pretty close to CIQ 1 and city square mall - Book a grab car n it takes like about 5 mins or less, provided no heavy traffic. The rooms i stayed previously, are clean, but furnitures are pretty dated already - it doesnt bother me much though. Because i'd rather stay in an accomodation with dated furnitures (but clean rooms), than with new furnitures but in a shoebox-sized hotel room -- Yea, size matters afterall! (at least to me so long rooms are clean). I read a few (guest) reviews of complaints; nitpicking about old furnitures + this n that. For short stay nitpickers on short stays, prepare to fork out much more for higher room rates if GBW were to do so. Overall, will i book n stay in this hotel (yet) again? Of course! :) (i extended my stay of 2 more nights this trip... Im comfortable here n dont wish to go home yet. Haha!) Cheerios, Guest ms A (room 1714 n 151X) PS: My so-dear fellow s'porean mates, dont so fussy lah.. If rates high, complain; Room a bit dirty, complain; Check-in a bit slow, complain; Breakfast spread, (also) complain! Kiasi, kiasu n simi pun kia. Wa kia boh lui nia. So, we just chill a lil n take a breather hor. :)

Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is very well located in the center of Johor Bahru City. It is very accessible and can easily be located. Eatery and shopping complex are located close by. The rooms are spacious completed with all the required necessity. The hotel is suitable for a medium family like mine. Hope to stay at the hotel in the near future.

Conveniently located with friendly staqff”

Very close to the Singapore/JB border, very friendly staff

The hotel looks very nice from the outside but it's very old and it shows in small ways (e.g. the bathroom feels oldand while everythign worked, it gave a sense of fragility--like if you were not careful handling things, they might break). However, the room was very clean and had a very comfortable bed. The hotel also had option for non-smoking rooms, which is very nice. The breakfast buffet was quite good and the staff in the restaurant were super friendly. That is perhaps the best feature of this hotel... it's staff! The price was very reasonable so as a place to stay when visiting Johor Bahru for a shopping trip this hotel is a good deal--it's only a few minutes from the immigration building and very close to the city center. But I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic holiday.

One Of The Best Around The JB City Area”

Walking distance from the immigration/custom building

I have visited JB (Johor Bahru) many time but first time to this hotel. It's quite obvious on the map that the hotel is not far from Iskandar (the immigration and customer building in Johor Bahru). Yet finding the way to the hotel is not easy. I finally gave up and took a cab to go there instead. Beware that not many taxi drivers would like to take you there as it is such a short distance and they need to give up their hard-earned post in the queue. The room and the food outlets are alright. But the so called 'fitness center' is actually an 'unfitness center' which is filled with cigarette plus musty smell and is run by a third party operator. They are charging RM50 for customers just to use the facilities.

Need to take taxi to shopping centre

I normally travel to Singapore for meetings but decided not to spend too much in hotel stays on the island thus heading across the causeway to Johor Bahru. Grand Bluewave is now my first choice in JB. It is very near the checkpoint as I normally drive, clearing customs it's just a 5 minutes drive depending on traffic. For me to go back to Singapore the next day is again a short drive and I reach the checkpoint without the need to negotiate thru the city's traffic. I've stayed for the first time, quite suprise with the room. I travel with my friends and a friend from london and request queen size bed for a comfortable sleep.My guest enjoy his stay Morning breakfast is local and western, a lot of varieties. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Check-in and check-out is a breeze. Definitely a good choice.

Great hotel for a Legoland trip”

Comfort, value for money, location.

We had a pleasant stay at the hotel. It's very close to Customs and Immigration Complex, bus terminal to Legoland, and new shopping center. There's a one way free shuttle to go to these places. Going back, just catch a legal taxi for around 10RM. We'll stay at Grand Bluewave again when we come back to Johor Bahru.

Really good hotel for Johor standards”

huge rooms, fair price

I've stayed in almost all better hotels in Johor Bahru, Grand Blue Wave is probably the best or second best (Mutiara is also in the game). Don't expect the same level as the big ones in KL (or in Singapore) but amongst the Johor hotels it gives you the best price/value ratio. Mutiara is somewhat more expensive but their rooms are refurnished recently. So you can decide for yourself, Grand Blue Wave has really nice and big rooms but they are a little oldish. They are clean though, everything works and well maintained, the service is proper and the breakfast is also quite nice and slightly different every day.

Value for Money Hotel.”

Very customer friendly staff, great location especially if you wish to take short trip to Singapore just across the Causeway. Bus terminal within easy access. Free parking for hotel guests.

we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room which was very spacious with even a small kitchenette. Although we stayed for only 1 night we had a very good stay in a quiet part of the bustling cty of Johor Bahru. The suite was definitely good value for money and we would definitely choose this hotel again if we are in JB.

Great Location and nice rooms”

The Hotel looks new which was recently renovated

We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 teenage children. We asked for inter-connecting rooms and the rooms were clean and large. This hotel is very near to town; about 2 minutes drive to “The Zone” Shopping Mall which offers duty free goods. Danga Bay is about 10 minutes drive, which was a total disappointment for us, nothing much to see and just some playground for children, unlike the last visit where it offered much more at night…...If staying in this hotel, get a room facing the waterfront of Johor Bahru.... the night view is awesome, you would be able to see the traffic leaving JB going towards Singapore. Not much variety offered for Breakfast though, but we had a pleasant stay.

Old hotel but very comfortable and quiet”

staff assistance, large sized room and views

Booked over internet and had no idea if what we saw was what we were getting. Very surprised with what we got and after walking around Johor Bahru, believe we got the best hotel in the area. The staff were very helpful. The executive suite lacked iron and ironing board and hairdryer however housekeeping quickly supplied. Only two sachets of coffee and plastic stirring spoon.

Lovely hotel and good location”

Spacious room

This is our 3rd stay at Grand Bluewave Hotel. We love the spacious Executive Suite where you have the choice of either city or sea view. There is a dining area which is equipped with a microwave if you wish to do some light cooking. The bathroom is large and clean, beds are comfortable and there is free internet access. There are 2 TVs in the room, however it could be better if they are LCD TVs. For our future trips to Johore Bahru, this hotel will definitely be our top choice.

Most bang for buck, clean and reliable hotel in JB”

Clean, comfortable, spacious, not noisy

Being a regular traveler down to Johor Bahru and having stayed at many different hotels, the Grand Bluewave Hotel has never failed to provide me with a clean, familiar and comfortable room. The spacious room and living room always ensures privacy and space from the other members of my family and the kitchenette is a welcome for reheating food or for some light cooking. It's also within a 5 minute driving distance to clubs, food courts and the customs to Singapore. Definitely highly recommended.

Quiet, Comfortable and Safe”

Good Hotel for Leisure and Business Travelers

We wanted to have a relax and quiet place to spend our weekend together and that was what we got exactly. If you have a transport on your own, it would be good to explore Johor Bahru and come to the Hotel to enjoy a peaceful, relax stay.
