        New and clean hotel 5 km from JB Sentral . Good value for the price . Staff is friendly and helpful. A few restaurants are within walking distance (Local food or McDonalds and PFK ). If you are a light sleeper ask for a room facing the back of the hotel .We will go back next time in Johor Bahru .

        Small, functional, convenient”

        The Potpourri Hotel is a small, yet cosy and functional establishment. The room we had come with very basic amenities / facilities. However, for our trip's purpose, the room met its function - a place to rest. The en suite bathroom is surprisingly big; most importantly clean. The hotel is located within the vicinity of another established hotel - Thistle Johor Bahru - and also walking distance from Johor's famed football team's (JDT) training ground. Located near the hotels are also F&B outlets which offer a variety of menu choices. McDonald's, Pizza Hut and KFC are also within walking distance. Others: WiFi - fast, met our requirement TV - limited channels, some fuzzy reception.

        Hotel is very new as it was opened in 2017 and it was under 2 years when I stayed. The bed sheets and towels were ok. Nothing mouldy, and no insects or bed bugs as compared to reviews on other hotels in JB in the vicinity of the city area. There are 3 levels where the rooms are. Ground, level 1 and level 2. We booked Superior Queen, and was assigned room 204. There was no windows so you might want to avoid this if you're claustrophobic. Room area was small and no extra table. Very basic facilities. You only have the bedside table and this long narrow shelf like thing under the tv. Barely had enough space to put all our backpacker styled bags and shopping bags. It costs about RM8-11 to Grab from JB City square to the hotel. So the price is still quite ok for the room and location, factoring in transport cost. Nothing much in the vicinity. Most shops were closed for the Raya holidays. Remember to buy back Breakfast and Dinner coz we kept forgetting. There's Macdonald's nearby.

        The hotel located just nearby JB city centre and give you an advantage to get into various places within JB. The parking is just in front of the hotel and free from coupon. The hotel has to ensure that room allotment is not overbooked as we can't get our booking right during the check-in process. Don't let your guest down due to your small mistake. Good Luck to Potpouri Hotel

        We stayed at this hotel for 1 night and booked for a family room. The room was very clean. This family room doesn’t have any windows, so you might need to inform them earlier if you need a room with windows. Staffs are so nice and helpful. There was even a ‘mini grocery store’ at the lobby - which my kids love it! It is one of the best value hotel i have stayed. Thank you 😁

        Pros: It's a new boutique hotel in the area. Great location and lobby. Basic amenities, room and toilet is spacious, have running coffee at lobby. Cons: although it stated a Non Smoking Hotel, room reeked with cigarette smell, and the room has NO window. Stayed for 3 nights, on 2nd day came back around 6PM, room was not cleaned. Complained to Front Desk, seem like he is new and unclear on SOP how to handle situation like this, saying I don't know what to do. He offered to clean it up but I refused seeing he might only able to do simple clean up. I waited for him to get in touch with Manager to sort this out. Waited for an hour then Manager called my and apologize profusely. Reason was the Cleaner "overlooked." Although I accept human error but not having proper procedure on how to handle is unacceptable to me. Overall, okay stay. Would hope for a better experience for other tenants.
