    Great place to stay for a short visit”

    We just stayed here for a night before travelling up to Terengganu. Room and facilities were fine. Receptionist was not very welcoming but we didn't think much of it. 5 mins walk to Plaza Pelangi where we bought all our necessities. Overall, worth the price paid.

    Great staycation for 3 days 2 night. We booked the newly renovated deluxe room. ”

    It was a pleasant stay for our young kids as they enjoyed the bathtub and the big shower room as well. Albeit their swimming pool is small, we did enjoyed our time spending in the pool as there wasn't much people around. You can find plenty of food restaurant surrounding the hotel area. Recommended ABMH restaurant as they served very nice prata, satay and delicious drinks!overall the hotel is very affordable and their staff are friendly and kind. We will definitely come back to this hotel again.

    Excellent hotel, excellent location and service. Must try”

    Very good hotel. New rooms, everything is new. The price is very low compared to the quality the hotel has. I was surprised why the price they are charging so low with this service. But this is what their greatness is. Must stay and you will enjoy. I parked my car for 5 days in hotel parking and went to Singapore. They didn't charge even a single RM for the parking. I was sooo happy. Great service that a 5 star hotel can extend is this. Extremely satisfied.

    Very nice facade. Room is spacious, well-maintained and clean. I hope they can give more toiletries as there is only one set given. My room was located next to the emergency exit so when someone opens the door, you can hear the loud banging. I hope tgey can upgrade the TV to smart TV, or if not, atleast decent cable TV. The channels are mostly local channels speaking native languages. Swimming pool is clean and just the right size. Gym is nice, looks clean with just the right equipment but I wish there was some alcohol wipes available for you to use for hygiene purpose. Drinking water in the gym tasted like tap. Buffet breakfast is delicious but I hope to have more Western choices.

    Value for money”

    2nd time here, booked the deluxe room and was given a free upgrade to the newly renovated jr suite. Previously booked the jr suite too but was given an old room. Appreciate the upgrade and all my preferences were taken note of - high floor and quiet/away from elevator - because i was doing some work-related assignments and projects and needed a conducive room to focus! Ordered room service thrice and food was alright, worth the money spent. Would definitely come back again for longer nights!

    Given a dirty room. The staff can't be bothered after check in. ”

    Upon entering the room, we saw hair strands lying around the carpet, bath floor mat is wet before use! 😱 Bath tub not cleaned with black spots n plastic pieces when we drained it ourselves and loose tap with sound for the bathroom. Went to the bedroom, found another pool of hairstrands on one of the bed and white flakes on the hotel directory book. Called the Recep, asked for a room change, was told that a call back will be done shortly. Seated in the room for 30mins patiently doing nothing and when we called up, was told that they're unable to reach us at our room phone and my mobile. Apparently, there is no ringing tone for their room phone n no miss call for my mobile. Anyways, what worse is that they emphasised impossible to change room as full occupancy that day and for upgrade to junior suite, they are offering us at around 550rm/nights. Nobody came to check our hotel, instead, received a slip to remind us on the check out timely the next day. Otherwise, we will be charged accordingly. Nuts. Thanks for that, you have lost a frequent customer. We switched hotel eventually. Very disappointed with Grand Paragon!

    Aging and needs updates”

    The location is ok if you are spending time shopping mainly at KSL City, as it is not so convenient to get to anywhere else except by bus or car. Rooms were adequate, bottles water given every day. But the furniture in the lobby was very old with cracked leather, the pool is TINY and kind of tucked away in a weird location as if it was a backroom. The old wing has a sauna/spa which has a cheap entrance fee but the facilities are also old and dirty. The breakfast buffet is pretty decent, though. OK for a short staycation but there are better hotels in JB for that.

    Good location but needs serious maintenance”

    We booked a room that was newly renovated but the actual room showed very obvious signs of wear and tear. The wallpaper was peeling, grab bar was loose, bathtub looked old and dirty, curtains were quite dusty. and tv was small and old. It would help if the hotel took more effort to maintain the facilities in the room. The swimming pool was underwhelming. The breakfast spread was okay considering we only stayed two nights. We were offered 4 complimentary beer vouchers which could be redeemed at their lounge. This was a pleasant surprise.
