    Friendly, Clean, Strategically Located”

    Fast WiFi, Friendly, Close to Local Eateries

    My 2nd stay in Princeton, visiting LEGOLAND. Why Princeton? 1)Transport: Very easy coming from S'pore Jurong East Intg, CW3; and Boon Lay Intg, CW6, alight outside AEON shopping mall. Princeton is just 7min walk from the bus stop 2)Shopping: AEON has plenty of eateries and cinema. 3)Local Food: Near TESCO/GIANT, within the shophouses. For breakfast, you can find wonton mee, char keoy tiao, etc. For dinner, try Zichar, satay, etc. Also plenty of eateries shops, just along the street behind Princeton, Tea Garden serves good food, has nice tungsten lightings. MingAng, a confectionery shop, sells very nice ShaoBao (roasted bun) and MaTiShu (cookies with honey like sweet fillings) My Stay.. I arrived very early around 8.30am, room wasn’t ready (no complaint), but the friendly staff arranged to keep our luggage at the counter as I told her I am heading to Legoland. The Superior King room was much bigger and spacious. Everything was basic, clean, had window, cold aircon, though sound proofing not great. Excellent WiFi, much better than those 3-4 stars hotels in KL or Penang. Princeton Hotel were selling Legoland tickets at ~20% discount from what you would have gotten online, pretty good deal. At lobby, there are some selection of snacks and mineral water if you need at late nite. Most of the staff I come across were friendly or very friendly. Others.. Hotel Granada is next to Princeton, 3-4 star. Can’t compare the two, Others are Kozi Hotel or Goody Hotel, but I will still probably pick Princeton on my next visit, for its King size bed, friendly staff and good WiFi.

    Location! Clean!Gd service!

    Booked Princeton becoz of many gd reviews? Was traveling with my husband n 8 yrs old son. We arrived early ard 10am n was too early for check in. However we were able to deposit our luggage at front desk. We left for Legoland for a full day n came back at 9pm to check in. Was given a room on 1st floor (actually 2nd). Room was rather small but cosy looking. Only thing was it was windowless!! Lol!! I did request for a window but was not given. room was clean and toilet too. Some sachets of shampoo,conditional and soap and even toothbrushes were provided.We took taxi to legoland (ard 10mins n cost ard $25-$28 MYR. Hotel location is just across Jusco and near to Giant nad also Tessco. Very convinence and bus stop for causeway link buses is just in front of Jusco. many eateries ard and our favourite is the TEA GARDEN REST just located at the behind row of the hotel. Overall we had a GREAT stay and will recommend this hotel if you are on a budget or even if you are looking for a fuss free and value for money place just to rest. Will definitely go back to this hotel for our next trip to JB. Thanks Princeton!!

    Location : Opposite is Tesco department store , is a bus-stop (go and back)Malaysia and Singapore (CW3) Near Legoland and Water park . You can take a Cab in front of Tesco , about take 10-15mins. We are very lucky met a Cab can sit 9 peoples. We just need pay RM35 each times. If u 4 people may charge less than us . Prices follow the meter. Cab driver He can speak english very well You can buy Legoland ticket from Hotel and Cab driver , both is cheaper than internet. Eat : A lot of restaurant back of Hotel you can choose. Or you can eat in Tesco . Or you can walk about 20mins to eat Seafood.(you can ask the man sit in front of Tesco they can teach u how to go , most man in there they can speak chinese and english.) Hotel: Room clean. Room very small(photo is wide)hard to open your big baggage. Wall is very thin, very very noise. (I always woke up at night) Staff is nice and check in fast. At lobby have Water filter machine , you can get hot and cold water.

    No Frills Option with friendly staff”

    The location of Princeton Hotel is great if you are taking a bus in from Singapore. It is around 5 to 7 minutes walk from where we get off at Aeon and easy to locate as it is facing the main road. The reception staff are really nice and friendly and I felt this sense of care from them as the lady made sure we had the right information and assured us that we could approach them if we had any concerns. A simple room set up with a comfortable bed. Don't expect full suite hotel facilities. Rooms are generally comfortable size, equipped with a nice bath room with standing shower, tv, coffee & tea as well as a rack for your bag / luggage. Hotel and cold water can be easily obtained near the lift. If you are claustropobic, this might not be an option as there are no windows in the room. We are there just to enjoy the day out and have a safe comfortable place to stay the night. Stayed here a few times and would come back again

    Nothing to complain about, this hotel is located apposite Jusco Bukit Indah, you can go shopping just accross the road. Other than that, it is just 5mins drive to Legoland Johor. Legoland hotel cost about RM800 per stay but Princeton is a good choice for those traveller who intent to save cost on the accommodation. Hotel room is clean with simple furnish. Their staff is quite friendly too.

But the location is near by Aeon Bukit Indah. Overall what I like is only the Indian female receptionist service, she talk in polite and manner way. When my car was park in front of the shop lot(same roll with Princeton Hotel), someone put chicken bone on my car, it's ridiculous.

    Conviniece, clean, friendliness of the staff

    Princeton is a good choice if you are in Johor for a weekend getaway. I would suggest to get the twin bed rooms as I feel it was much more spacious than the single. Staff was really friendly and allow us to check in earlier than the check in time when we arrive at the hotel at 10.30am! (And no extra charges! Another +1 point for them) Furthermore, Its just a walking distance (10mins or so) to Aeon and also to McDonald's (they have chatime too! :D) from the hotel so no biggie if you don't have a car to search for food. And for entertainment you can watch a movie at Aeon (TGV cinemas) or get on a bus and head to Singapore.

    My 2 children, my wife and me was visiting Legoland and we stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. I feel it is the most correct choice, because of its location and value for money. 1. It is just within 10 minutes drive to Legoland 2. It is surrounding by all range of restaurant (local, Chinese, Korean, fast food, cafe, western). 3. It is surrounding by all range of massage center. 4. It is just opposite of AEON Shopping Complex. 5. It is easy to access from Plus Highway.
