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 🤗

1st experience in Silka Johor Bahru”
My parents, especially my dad, were really satisfied with the room. Same goes to my Little Princess, jumping around the room, smiling from ear to ear, kept thanking me for bringing her there, although our intention of staying in Silka was because, our my niece's engagement ceremony which was held at Taman Johor Jaya. Overall we had a pleasant family bonding session together. Thanks Silka for the cleanliness and fast services at the front desk. We will be back for sure. 👍👍

Trip in Johor”
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.
It was my second time staying at Silka Johor Bahru. Ive always enjoyed my stay at this particular hotel , The room service food menu was cheap and tasty. This time i manage to utilize my free time at the gym and swimming pool. room was clean and sufficient space for two person.
My stay at Dorsett Johor Hotel”
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.
Convinient and affordable hotel”
I really enjoyed my stay at the Sikla Johor Bahru Hotel. The room was clean and nice. My entrance to the hotel was greeted professionally. The room provided me just enough space to work and move around. This hotel was well equipped , swimming pool , tennis court , gym and even a basketball court!
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.
Nice Comfortable Hotel”
Nice comfortable hotel with a good breakfast spread which include fresh and crispy roti canai. Nearby to Taman Molek and Taman Johor Jaya where you could find some rather good restaurants. For golfers, can choose Ponderosa, Octville, Austin and Permas Jaya golf course.
Good Hotel with good services”
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. My washroom was locked from the inside and when we call the room service immediately the came to open the door. Really enjoyed staying at Silka Hotel.
Lovely hotel with great service.”
It is clean, spacious and comfortable hotel to stay in. I would certainly recommend to other people if happens to be in Johor Bahru. It is one of the most convenient hotel with great service from the staff. Best business hotel i have visited so far.
Such a strategic place. Near to bandar raya johor bahru and pasir gudang. Affordable rate price. Overall is okay.

Value for Money for families with children”
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.
Good clean hotel, no fuss”
Silka Johor Bahru is a good convenient hotel. Clean. Fuss-free. Just that the hotel is a little bit of distance from Johor Bahru city centre. If u have a car, it is ok. However if you do not drive, this hotel will not be convenient for you.
Clean and nice”
Has a good location and clean, Parking allocation a little bit inconvenient due to space constrain But overall decent facilities and a safe and clean accomodation Pricing is a bit on the high side considering its outlook and location off the city center of Johor Bahru
Great value hotel with lots of positives”
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.
Great location with affordable price”
the rooms are spacious for the price paid. nothing to complain. silka the drive to city centre via edl is a breeze....location near taman molek, taman johor jaya and dedap which are famous for its varieties of eateries place. a good place to explore good food.
Away from the bustle but still strategic”
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.
Good Value Hotel”
Silka Hotel is located at the vicinity of Taman Johor Jaya and Taman Molek. These 2 townships are full of activities. You can get good food and some of these restaurants have cuisine that you never expect to eat in JB. All in all a good place to stay and relax. Fully recommended for family or business stay.
stay in this hotel 4days 3nights..eventhough quite far from city,but this hotel totally value for money..guess i like to stay here when come to Johor next time! tq Silka Hotel!
