    Cheap and acceptable”

    Room was good but lack kettle and hairdryer. Good that a wardrobe is provided as budget hotels usually don't provide that. Toilet was very cramped and poorly designed and cleanliness was so-so. Lack handheld shower, only rain shower provided. What if I don't want my hair wet? The toilet bowl is so near the sink that you have no space to sit on it. The bathroom and toilet was the biggest let down of the room. 24 hour security for the car park so you feel safe. Near the city but not within walking distance. Nothing much to offer within walking distance. make sure you have transport if staying here.

    Very basic but with full hotel in room services such as water bottle, disposable toothbrush, coffee sachets, towels & toiletries. There’s also water dispenser at the common area for hot/cold water. Paid rm110++ for 2 queen beds room. The ONLY thing is that there were no window in our room but heck, who cares when all you needed was a place to sleep and freshen up the next day.

    Seedy/Shady hotel you should avoid ”

    Hotel was in bad condition. When we arrived at the hotel, there were many seedy ladies selling sex services at the hotel hanging out at the couches alongside with 5-7 other men. Since it was a budget hotel, we decided to make do with that and check in. When we check in and went to the VIP room that we book, the air-cons were not cold and seemed like they were in fan speed. We called the front desk and they did not pick up, so we went all the way down. There was an Indian man who came to assist us but still most of the VIP rooms were stinky and had a weird smell. They brought us to a few rooms to see if we could change to those but the air-con were all the same and we went down the hotel 5-6 times just to get their staff's help. As well, we couldn't even open the room door via the card and had to head down again to get the key from them. When we were heading down from our rooms to the front desk, each time we saw different prostitutes in the lift. The whole place was like a brothel instead of a hotel and perhaps they might even be residing in the hotel. We were very distressed as the receptionist only spoke Malay and she couldn't handle the issue when we wanted a refund. It was a very stressful situation as we did not want to go to the lower levels where there were many call girls going in and out of the place which made us felt VERY uncomfortable. Moreover, the reviews mentioned that some bedsheets were with weird stains and not cleaned. Warning you guys not to stay in such a seedy hotel/brothel. Your safety might also be compromised.

    A very comfortable Budget hotel ”

    I was very surprised by how clean & well maintained it is as I thought for the price I was paying, it will be a very rundown & terrible hotel but I was completely wrong & impressed by how nice it smells (as some hotels have the mouldy kind of smell), the aircon was very strong, entire premises was clean and surprisingly they also provide necessities like towels, toothbrush, shampoo and bath gel. Location is near city square & ksl. Good stay.

    Clean, Quiet and not expensive

    It's a very nice hotel. I booked a quad room for 4 people. They provide - 4 towels, toilet papers, 4 glasses in the room - hot&cold water in front of the elevator - breakfast at 8 To get to the hotel you have to take a cab (~RM12) from JB Sentral and it takes about 15 minutes to get there. There are a local grocery and a few restaurants around the hotel.

    Best budget hotel”

    Friendly staff, perfect location near to city, ample parking area

    It was a very pleasant stay for us at the hotel. The location is superb! As every location we want to visit are nearby (we travelled by car). I was worried at first when other travellers commented about train sound but to my surprise, there was none that disturbed our sleep. The room is clean and the bathroom looks new. The free breakfast is almost the same & served next door. However, the area of the hotel is quite lonely even in the daylight so, for female and family travellers be aware and try to park nearer to the hotel. Danga City Mall is in the walking distance from the hotel. The rest of the city can be reached in around 20mins max (again, we had car). The staffs are friendly and always with a smile. The renovation is still ongoing hence there are paint stench in the lift and corridor. Altogether, it was a wonderful stay and definitely enhanced our entire trip as we saved A LOT on time.

    Service of the hotel

    This hotel is really good if you are out there for a short stay in JB. Their service are very good and comes with free wifi and breakfast at such a cheap rate. But the location wise is a little hard to locate but once you are familiar with the area it's easy for you to find the hotel. This hotel also locates near to a train track whereby you will hear train passingby every now and then, and it actually gives you a very city cum Kampong area feel. There's not much things around the hotel which means you have to take a cab everytime you are going out. It takes around 6-7Rm from city square area to the hotel and Rm7-8 if you are travelling to Larkin bus terminal. Please ask the cab drivers for meter rates or you will be chop like a carrot! hahas

    Very strategically located hotel in JB. RM6 by Grab to Larkin Sentral, RM 6 to JB Sentral, RM7 to UTC JB and RM5 to KSL Resort. Walking distance to Indonesian Consulate. Facilities are good for the price you pay. Minor defects but need to be overlooked .TV, hot water shower, coffee making facility and tooth brush cum paste provided.Slight noise from opening/closing of neighbouring room doors and the occasional train noise. Otherwise strongly recommended for the budget conscious.
