Great location in the heart of the city”
Really at the center of the city. Surrounded by lots of restaurants, and also a 24hr 7-eleven. Withing a walking distance to a shopping mall, night market so called JB Bazar aka Pasar Karat, train station, taxi station, etc. Just a few minutes away from CIQ ( Singapore ). About 20 minutes to Legoland and Hello Kitty, and 30 minutes to Johore Premium Outlet. The room itself is very spacious. Very confortable for a family trip. A free car park is provided at the lower ground, make it very convinient to and from the hotel room itself. All the basics necessacities are OK such as hot water, aircond, and TV ( unfortunately no remote control ). The satff are all very friendly and helpful. Overall, really worth the money ...
Overall, it is centrally located and above average”
It was a great experience staying at JB Central Hotel. I would recommend it for anyone who wants a value for money hotel. The location is superb as i can access anywhere near Johor Bahru City.
Good Class Hotel”
great place to get away from town, yet easily accessible with paid shuttle bus to jb icq. very good international spread, seldom found in malaysia hotel. next to a ksl city shopping mall and opposite is the aging holiday plaza. lots of eateries. so, eat and eat. negative : 1) near to ktvs and discotech, booming away at night to wee hours. can be heard in the quite bedroom. boom you to sleep.
Budget hotel that conveniently located”
This hotel is all about extremely convenient location, being right next to City Square mall and the Malaysian customs building. There is a 24-hour Indian coffee shop beside the hotel too, to pander to your late-night cravings. Delicious roti channai and tea! Since we were on the 18th floor, the hotel offered stunning views of JB city, spanning even Singapore. And it was an extremely spacious room for RM138. We had lotsa space to dance and jump around after getting drunk! However, it was a smoking room, so non-smokers might not have enjoyed the musty smell. And be warned, while the toilet is of 3-star standards, the floor gets extremely slippery, so much so that my friend fell!
big room and great location”
It was a great location hotel. nearby jb sentral. and it is very convenient. room was big enough and as reviews by others. there will be some small cockroach in the bathroom. pest control have to be improve by the hotel. the price was very affordable also.
Big room with strategic location ”
the hotel is very strategic at the heart of central jb. the big shopping complex is just beside the hotel. the ciq also beside it. food - no problem as when u out from the hotel you can find good food around example sup kambing. the hotel facilities also good come with slippers and other standard toiletries. the most important thing is the hotel is value for money. there is a sauna service at level 4. breakfast also included. express bus ticket to singapore also at the ground floor easy to do day trip to singapore. ticket only rm 5.
Good location but hotel a bit run down”
We have checked in several time but hotel seem the same. The only changes are hotel front desk staffs. Only 1 'old face' we still recognized but to our disappointment, he's very unfriendly n don't seem to recognize their hotel guest, this give the hotel 1st impression. One incident that happen was, the next room guest tried to force open the door as our both room has a connecting door. I called out n they just shout to us back. On the way out for our dinner I made a complain to the front desk after what happen. They apologized on behalf of the guest n will attend to the matter asap. The breakfast was simple, local spread, but pls do something to your cold drinks. They are too diluted and spoilt the taste! JB Central, please look into all your guests review n improvise in whatever you should.
Great location with big room”
Very conveniently located, beside city square, connected by bridge and to malaysia custom (JB sentral). The room is big and comfortable enough. Super convenient for travelling to and from singapore.
Great location with a Big room”
even before i book from agoda i have been staying in this hotel for a few times but with agoda the price is better and i was surprise that they have cable tv now with star movie it was something new for this hotel where they don have it before and the guest will not be boring even they wanted to stay in the room for the whole day it's a regret that they do not have wi-fi in the room hope they improve on this
Location n Reasonable Price!!!”
Great Location Good Price However Facilities Not Good The Only Good Thing Abt This Hotel Is Location, Near JB Custom Shopping and Food Stall Atound.
centre location tio ciq johor bahru-singapore”
good services with cheap price. centralised location with 3 minute walking distance to CIQ johor bahru/singapore. very very conveinence!
As the title suggests, the location is excellent, with city square mall just a street across. The hotel provides basic necessities and the room is spacious and clean, hence it is really a good choice if you are looking at value for money. There are also plenty of choices just along the streets where the hotel is located. I would love to visit this hotel again if i do go there for a quick getaway.
good option for the attractions nearby”
hotel is fine and nearby attractions points and nearby CIQ complex and Johor-Singapore border.
Great view from the hotel of the area there. Breakfast was not good. Convenient place, just 5 mins from JB City Square and 10mins from the causeway towards Singapore. Rooms are big and decent for the deluxe rooms. Great price.
Spacious & Great views but cockroaches hiding”
When 1st time we checked in the room, the staffs didnt recognise the Agoda E-voucher and asked me to go to the other JB Sentral hotel but luckily there was my name inside the booking system and everything was fine. Spacious room with great view looking at the JB checkpoint and the straits. We saw 2 cockroaches in the room and we didnt care, left the room for shopping and food and came back to rest. And left the room again for movies at City Square shopping mall. Came back at nite and the room was dark. Turn ON the lights and there were cockroaches everywhere, especially around the food. Luckily my kids are not frightened with cockroaches. Too tired and late to complain, clean the place and sleep with the lights ON. Wanted to complain when checking out, pass by a room with the staff spraying the insecticide. Forget about it, i think they knew.
1. Room is spacious, clean, but poor bathroom accessories such as dental kit and towel (need to ask, not standard kit, not sure chargeable or not). Make sure you bring your own bathroom kit. Hot water is working properly 2. Location is superb, nearby to JB sentral and JB city square. 3. No wifi in the room
This hotel is centrally located and 10min walk to JB sentral where you can get bus to Legoland and to Terminal Larkin(Express Bus to all over peninsular malaysia ). Also near Malaysia/Singapore customs.
JB Central Hotel”
Overall, i would say that i enjoyed staying at JB Central Hotel. And this is the first time that i booked a hotel accomodation via agoda.com. At first, i was a bit worried if my booking is confirmed but after making a phone to the hotel reservation counter, i noted my booing is confirmed. My comment to the hotel is overall satisfactory, although it is not a 4 star or 5 star hotel but the hotel is in good condition. One thing to complain is that the water from the pipe is limited supply when taking shower.
Big room but old furniture”
Big room but old furniture, many cockroach came out from old table and bath room. The television so old and no many channels that i can enjoy. The bed is like stone. But the good points is big space inside the room and big windows that you can wide see the territory barrier between singapore and johor bahru. May be not stay anymore at this hotel.
Good location & very huge room.”
I'll definitely choose JB Central Hotel for my next stay.
