    We have booked 2 bunkers room with shared bath but GEM boss upgraded us to another nearby hotel with 2 singles and 1 king bed & bathroom attached, the GEM front desk guy also very friendly and helpful. Thanks GEM boss with such arrangement but we didn't stay overnight, just stopped by for some rest and refresher. Everything is good about the hotel, definitely much value for money.

    Budget and nice to stay”

    Queen bed room with toilet is spacious. All item look new. Inside room have 2 towel, 2 set of toiletries. Television, small cabinet to keep small item, no wardrobe but they provide you place to hang you cloth. Wifi signal and speed is also good. Able to enjoy watching youtube without any lag. Speed test is around 30Mbps. Toilet wall is glass with blurry image. Television got few channel the clearer one i get is TV3. Other is not very clear and no movie channel. Door lock is using rfid card. Room electical power also using rfid card to activate. The room is not sound proof maybe because at night i able to heard quite clear of someone walk and open door. Outside of hotel is now not many of shop because nearby got construction. So that mean around night you could see construction worker walking back to their home. They have a public parking and lot of it is empty because not many shop open that area. Receiptinist staff for local is nice and friendly to talk and ask. They are wiling to help you if you need anything. During my stay a local malay lady is working, tumb up for her for helping customer with good attitude. Other staff I do not know. Overall i am satisfy with the room and hotel because enough for someone that is looking for budget hotel and privacy to rest for a night. I able to get good price using Agoda.

    Stay : 30 - 31st August 2021. Room No : 306. Location : The hotel is located 17km away from JB City Centre. However it is located right in the heart of new JB City in Kota Iskandar. The nearest Mall will be Sunway BigBox and Aeon Bukit Indah. It is hardly accessible by bus or taxi. Reception : The Indian lady is very kind. The check in process is very smooth and quick. She gave easily understandable isntruction. Cleanliness : EXCELLENT. Room : I booked a deluxe room without bathroom. It is located right in front of my room. The room is very comfy and the tv is working well. Recommendations : Totally will recommend this to any simple traveler.

    The room (shared bathroom) was great!”

    It valued for money at rm50 for 2, Toiletries provided inside the room with towels and tv as well! They have iron board downstair, same level washing machine, and even cooking room at the same floor. 1. Tv was installed the morning I checked in, but the tv is not connected to any show. They came to connect the cable unfortunately they brought a wrong cable. 2. Please be ready as the wall between rooms is thin so you can hear whispers at the room beside. But it's not a big problem and value for money. 3. Location is a bit far in a new area (20min driving from city centre) but that's a reason for a cheaper price which I looked for. Away from crowded area and free parking.

    So i booked a room, intended for only 1 night stay. came with wife, and 2 kids (5 and 2 yrs old). clean room, linen also clean, quiet as well. Was surprised that the toilet actually is shared toilet (i did not specifically look if the toilet is actually in the room when i book), but even so, the toilet is also very clean and tidy. Definitely recommended if you are only looking for a night to sleep, and ok with having shared toilet.

    Cheap price but need improvement ”

    The price is the cheapest at this area. But the cleanliness need to be improved. They are long term residents stay in this hotel at 3rd floor where kids are around, making noise running here and there at corridor. Smokers are staying at there too for long term.. I also doubt whether do they clean and change the bedsheet as some are smelly. Overall, because of cheapest price, I think still acceptable.

    i knew we should not be too demanding at this price range, but i believe there are many more alternatives out there. the room is dusty and smelly, and there are is no even a kettle for me to keep some water. the shower is malfunction as the shower head easily detached from the pipe. the facility is also a no-no. there are only one light switch. need to wake up to turn off and on the light. the bedsheet is yellowish and dirty. the bed is too thin and not good for the back. last but not least, i was told it will cost cheaper to walk in instead of booking on Agoda. then what for I book it on Agoda? i felt like I have been fooled. i hope Agoda will look into this matter. the room is neither the room I supposed to get, with a separate single bed, i booked it as queen bed.

    Very good”

    Cheap rate for a new hotel in Nusajaya. Quite small but comfortable enough for a night stay.

    For budget accomodation it did the job.”

    Hotel was ok, easy to find and an open reception. Plenty of parking. Rooms, i had a windowless room, but for a late night arrival and early morning departure i didnt need a window. The aircon had a terrible smell coming in, which stopped after about an hour. Shower holder was broken, but overall for the price it was as expected.
