Strategically Located near KSL & Food Center.”

Panoramic View, Spacious Room with Huge Beds

Our stay at Grand Paragon Hotel Johor Bahru on 24.12.2011 was awesomely fantastic. My request was fully fulfilled like high floor with connecting rooms. For the price we paid, on Christmas Eve is definitely a good deal which includes breakfast. The Hotel is just 5 mins away to KSL Shopping Mall & less 10 mins to Palangi. And if you are looking for local food, there is a big Food Center just behind the hotel. From check-in till the day we check-out is always a service with a Smile. We will definitely come back again very soon. * Free Wifi too

Staying at the Grand Paragon Hotel during our family holiday in Johor Bahru was an excellent choice. The hotel offers value for money accomodation with buffet breakfast and Wi-Fi included. The housekeeping service was very prompt and courteous. The hotel is conveniently located near shopping centres, delicious and cheap hawker style food outlets and restaurants. Generally, the hotel reflects a clean and welcoming ambience. We look forward to staying at the Grand Paragon Hotel again when we visit JB.

Location, pricing and comfort

This is my third time staying at Grand Paragon Hotel Johor Bahru. I always requested for the same room and the hotel always obliged. We arrived before 12.00pm but was able to check in. Check in and out extremely fast and efficient. Every Monday evening there is a Pasar Malam/Street Market behind the hotel. The carpark is very safe with a security guard always on duty and a cctv at the exit. Within walking distance to a shopping mall. Will definately stay here again if visiting Johore Bahru.

I have always enjoyed my stays at the Grand Paragon. My family kind of adopted this hotel as our preferred accommodation for each trip to Johor Bahru. It has everything we need. Drug store which closes late. Basic gym. Rooftop swimming pool. Spa. Hairdressing salon. And the best restaurants. Best hotel in JB in my opinion.

We went on a holiday to Malaysia, but we flew back from Singapore. We stayed in Johor Bahru instead of Singapore on our last night. An average room in Singapore was twice the price of a room at the Grand Paragon. The room was very spacious, very clean. Breakfast was great. Would stay there again!

I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. When I checked in to the hotel, I just verbally requested the reception staff for a upgrading of the room and I was surprised that she willingly acceded to my request and upgraded it to a Deluxe Twin with balcony. The room was located on the high floor with good view of the Johor Bahru town.

Clean, Worth, Foods

Well, as a frequent guest in Paragon Hotel, it is still the best choice hotel in Johore Bahru. It is worth for my stay on 28th Dec till 30th Dec 2015. Front Office Staffs is well organized and systematics too. Keep up the good work. Housekeeping staff is well-mannered in assist whatever you needs. By the way, the Security measures must improve drastically because the management should perform the "previous way" in using the room card in order to get into our rooms however I still observed that "many strangers" is still using the lift to the lounges and pub on 14th level. Paragon Hotel -as for Security Management must looks into this immediate to avoid "future drastic happening". Prevention Measures is Better than Cures because who knows that Something might gets worst...This is my Good Advise for Paragon Management. Remark: Use back the old ways to use the "Room Card" to reach our own Room in order to allow others to access it back our rooms however to avoid all illegal purposes or to create harm to others. Keep up your Best Image & Reputation. Thank you..

Nice clean hotel. Everything worked properly in the room. ”

The stay at this hotel was nice. Room was well appointed and service was great. Beware of the cost of breakfast if there are no remaining rooms that include it. The difference in price for rooms with breakfast is around S$10 (30 ringgit) but if you pay on the day, breakfast for two will cost around S$30 (90 ringgit). Hotel is nice though. Great stay in Johor Bahru.

A wonderful and memorable stay for me. The moment i arrived at the reception, i was impressed with the warm hospitality by the personnel of the hotel, in this case "Grand Paragon Hotel (Johor)". The personnel there were respectful and always considerate of others. I was even allowed to check-in earlier with no "extra word" was required. I like the facilities and foods there. Yes, it is very convenient as well too, when it comes to foods and entertainment. A reasonably big hawkers' stall is situated right at the back of the hotel. Shopping malls, which comprise of almost everything, are around the area within walking distance, too! Yes, surely, for my next Johor trip, regardless of leisure or business related, I will ensure my PA books this hotel for me. Once again, thank you Grand Paragon (Johor).

Good hospitality!”

I arrived here after the rooms which I have reserved via agoda.com were not booked by the hotel just next to this hotel due to the miscommunication between their operation team. Anyway, I was greeted nicely by the receptionists of Grand Paragon Hotel after enduring a 7-hour drive from KL and it seems that I have found a decent replacement hotel for my stay in Johor Baru. Not only that the employees were full of smile and friendly, they responded quick to my additional request upon my arrival to my room. This hotel's breakfast menu was varied from Malaysian to Western cuisines and I have to admit, the taste was fine for a 4-star status this hotel possessed (I presume). This hotel has a Cigar Lounge at if I'm not mistaken their highest floor and chilling at the lounge will definitely made you feel like a royal.. Real Instagram-worthy shot!
