Great & Pleasant Stay, Clean Rooms, Friendly Staffs.”

Had a Pleasant and Great Stay at the Hotel. Had a bad day when our car broke down & had to checked in really really late. Upon checking in, front desk receptionist named Shasha really made our day saying they've given us a free upgrade from Deluxe Dbl to a Suite. The room was spacious and clean, with 2 bathrooms, balcony, etc. Top of that, Shasha went to the extra mile to help us book for Grab Ride as didnt have their local registration number to make the booking for our ride out of the hotel for dinner. De best shopping mall, Aeon Tebrau City is just 10-15mins away. They have everything under 1 roof. Will for sure check-in with the Hotel again. 🤗 Thank You Silka Johor Baru 🤗

Trip in Johor”

A very new hotel with full facilities provided. buffet breakfast is included with a reasonable price.
20 minutes drive from city centre which inconvience for those without own transportation. hotel lobby is a little bit smaller compared to other similar level hotels. this cause congestion during the checkout period.

overall, i'm quite satified with the stay in dorsett hotel, johor. althought the room is slightly small but i think is reasonable with the price. cleanliness for the room is perfect with well equipped like huge TV, water heater, towel, safety box and wireless connection. all staffs are friendly and informative as keen to show me the way to city centre and danga bay which make my journey went smoothly without wasting my time in searching the correct road. i definitely will stay in dorsett again if i go johor bahru in future.

My stay at Dorsett Johor Hotel”

Friendly and helpful hotel staffs, good in-room facilities, premium experience at a value for money cost - example: king sized bed, wifi, and spaciousness.
No elevator to hotel parking

I was on a business trip to Pasir Gudang when i booked a room at Dorsett Johor Hotel - That was my second stay at the Hotel (last was in 2009). I find that Dorsett Johor Hotel is very well located for people who wish to travel for a business trip in Pasir Gudang because the it is located near the main road and the travel time to Pasir Gudang (Polytechnique) took about half an-hour during peak hours. The overall package that the hotel offered was value for money as compared to the other hotel because for those on busineess trips you really a hotel that's not far from your business location and a hotel that offers a good comfort level (king size bed and spacious room) as well a free in-room Internet services. And the best part is that it offers a very good price for a deluxe room via Agoda - unbeatable price. The inavailability of elevator to the hotel parking bay was not an issue for me because it appreciates the value that I got in return especially the room comfort and facilities at such price. Congratulations.

Unforgettable Experience”

Friendly, attentive and helpful staff makes me feel at home at the hotel. The decor is tasteful with a good ambiance.
The main disadvantage is the remote location of the hotel. The hotel is accessible to highways but there's massive traffic congestion entering into the highway on weekends and eves of weekend. Another disadvantage is small room size, and the standard rooms are windowless. The deluxe room has windows/sliding door going into the balcony but the room size is no bigger than the standard room. Another disadvantage is parking, as well as the swimming pool and gym are in the next building, so guest must walk a bit. Guests need to get the key to the gym at the management office of the service apartments next to the hotel, and there are not always staff manning the office. So that is an inconvenience for me.

Dorsett Hotel Johor is like a home away from home because of their friendly, attentive and helpful staff who make me feel at home. Every problem that was reported is attended to promptly. The service is prompt and hospitality from staff is excellent, from concierge, front desk, coffee house, room service, housekeeping, maintenance and security. The unforgettable experience compensates all the disadvantages that the hotel has such as its remote location in Pasir Gudang. I will think twice about going out into Johor Bahru or Danga Bay using the Pasir Gudang Expressway from the hotel on weekends and eves of weekend because of the massive traffic congestion entering into the highway. Parking, swimming pool and gym are in the next building. Guests need to get the key to the gym at the management office of the service apartments next to the hotel, and there are not always staff manning the office. I waited for half an hour to get the key. So that is an inconvenience for me. Despite that, I had a good stay at the hotel, and food is relatively good. I would come again if I should come that way again in the future.

Me and my family stayed for 2 nights at Silka Hotel. The rates are reasonable and the rooms are very spacious. The location is quite near to Singapore border and we drove not even 30 mins to arrive at the border. Even though the swimming pool is in the other block but the pool is very big and my kid enjoyed swimming there. The receiptionist at the main desk are very nice and helpful.

Value for Money for families with children”

location, space and price

We were in JB as we planned to go to USS the next day. Having considered the pros and cons of staying in Singapore vs JB, we decided to stay in JB and chose Silka as the hotel to stay in since the whole purpose was to just have a good and comfortable place to rest for the night, after the drive from KL. The children love the fact that there are 2 TV sets since they can watch different channel. We also love the fact that the room has a balcony as otherwise it can be pretty stuffy. My wife and I had breakfast the following morning at the Cafe but the spread of food was very limited. Perhaps that is one reason why the hotel rate is quite cheap. Silka is a place to stay if you do not intend to enjoy the facilities there. It is worth the money if all you need is a comfortable place to stay for the night.

Great value hotel with lots of positives”

Friendly staff

This is my second stay at Silka and it's become my favourite hotel to go to whenever I visit JB. For the price range and also comfort level, I don't think there are any other hotels in JB that are comparable. I suppose one negative thing about it is that it's far from the JB town centre. But if you're driving and you don't have a real need to go to JB town, the location is near enough a network of highways to get you to anywhere relatively fast. The room is spacious, and you get a proper big sized TV with a good choice of terrestrial and satellite channels. Hot shower is good with a choice of the regular shower heads or the rainfall type. Room service is quickly delivered and delicious, they the NZ lamb rack, you'll probably want more.

Away from the bustle but still strategic”

1. The rooms, modern and sparkling clean, especially the toilets. My business suite had two bathrooms and two flat-screen TVs. Would have preferred a solid door for the shower instead of the curtain. 2. Attentive and polite staff, with good knowledge of the area, giving tips for directions to shopping places. Prompt service too, spoke good English. 3. Good spread of breakfast with rice, prata, tasty porridge and your choice of eggs. The room was cosy and you can choose to dine in the open-air space adjacent to the restaurant. The staff cleared plates promptly and portions were generous and they were still replenishing even when many guests were done with breakfast. 3. Frequent public buse ply the roads just in front of the hotel. Taxis were easy to get too.
1. The swimming pool, though big with kid's pool had debris and something else, one of my nieces got a small cut. But they more than made up for it by sending her to the clinic to have it treated (at no charge to us) with the manager personally chauffering us during the night after we alerted them. 2. No plentiful eating places around but I guess with Tesco just within walking distance, not so bad. The area is quite deserted, so best not to go walking around alone at night.

I wanted a hotel away from the Johore city or Bandaraya and close to Jusco Eon Tebrau. Dorsett meets this requirement easily. We took a taxi from Larkin bus station and it was metered, cost us 15 RM. At the mention of the hotel's name, the cab driver was not sure at first but after explaining a bit more about its location realised it was an apartment that was converted into a hotel. He had no problem bringing us there. Checking-in was a breeze, we wanted our rooms to be on the same floor, and the staff ensured that we got them. Didnt mind the small wait as the other room need to be cleaned before we occupied it. After that, off to the pool, located at the next tower. Wasnt too sure how to get there but a security guard showed us. It was great, spacious with kid's pool but later the kids had problem with some sharp debris. We called the reception for some plaster and ointment when my niece got a cut but the manager came with first aid kid and looked at the cut thoroughly before deciding to send us to the clinic to treat it. That was nice. I do hope that the hotel will do something to the pool and ensure that it is safe for the guests. That incident didnt spoil the rest of our stay at Dorsett. We liked it so much because it is in a quiet neighbourhood with Tesco, Giant and Jusco nearby. Public buses and taxis can be flagged just ouside the hotel. The breakfast was good, with kids from 3-12 charged with 6 RM for a full buffet breakfast, and adult at 12 RM. We are already planning for our next stay in Dorsett.
