"Check in is quite disaster at first when such a big hotel do not use numbering check in such as Genting Resort and Marina Bay Sand. Lucky for me, they manage to put me check in at their Business Lounge after make a small complain during the Q. Not just that, they also go beyond my expectation an offered me complimentary room upgrade located one of their highest floor and with great views of Johore Bahru city and the neighborhood Singapore.

"The location of the hotel is superb, all within a few minutes walking distance to the many local famous foodies in JB downtown like Ya Wang, Hua Mei, Kim Leng fish head curry, and more. One can also do cafe hopping at Jalan Dhoby, Jalan Tan Hiok Nee and Jalan Trus area. The night Bazaar which is literally downstairs of the hotel will make sure you will have a full fun day here in JB downtown without needing to drive out to elsewhere. Another thing to mention is we really enjoy the unobstructed view of the JB city center from our room !"

"we enjoyed our stay at new york hotel. we found the room spacious and comfortable. the ceiling is high and we had a beautiful view of johor bahru city from our hotel window. the restaurant on the ground floor serves fine food at affordable prices. both local food and western cuisine were available. we also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. when a bedside lamp was found blown, the staff replaced it promptly. the restaurant manager coped well with stress when it was crowded and we needed fast service."

"Stayed at Amari for one night with my partner and I must say the hotel's location is fantastic and ideal for a short trip across the Causeway. It is just a short walk from the Johor Bahru checkpoint and across the road from two popular shopping malls — City Square and Komtar JBCC. In terms of customer service, we had a pleasant check-in experience and received a free upgrade to a junior suite (we had originally booked an executive club king room). The room was spacious, comfortable and clean, nothing to complain about at all. The "pillow menu" we found at our bedside table was a nice welcome touch as well although we did not utilise it. Breakfast buffet selection was also quite varied and we enjoyed it very much. We did not manage to try the rest of the dining options at Amari given our short stay. While Amari's rates are certainly more expensive than the average hotel in Johor Bahru, I'd say it's worth the splurge especially if you're looking for a nice place for a quick getaway."

"thistle is our regular hotel in johor bahru, malaysia due to the value for money and hygiene level. location of hotel located on its own and if you want to travel out, you will need either your own vehicles or a cab. the bell boy would be more than willingly to get a cab for you at a charge of rm$2 (fixed booking charge of this rate for all cabs in johor bahru) room size (deluxe vs standard) all rooms are spacious as compared to other hotels i had stayed in. deluxe room have a bigger toilet but small living quarter whereas the standard room have a bigger living quarter but a smaller toilet size. hygiene standard rooms are pretty clean just that there are some bed-sheets that had stained in it; most probably they could not remove it. other than that, the hygiene standard is pretty good. deluxe room also come with an extra chair and the bed is way bigger. recommend to just go for the standard room which is cheaper if you are on a budget and someone who is going to spend most of your time in the living quarter and not the toilet and does not need the extra chair. room view the rooms are located too far away from the sea and the city view is facing a miserable highway therefore i’ll strongly recommend you to stick to the cheapest grade of room (standard room; city view) and not upgrade your room just for the sea view as recommended by others unless you do not mind forking out the extra money (pictures of the view are attached) *some sea-view room face the hospital and you will be able to hear the ambulance siren at night. i stayed at a pretty high floor room and yet still able to hear them. request for a room that is not facing the hospital if you are looking for some quality sleep."

"Trove Johor Bahru was located near the Checkpoint. It is about 5 minutes drive from City Square Shopping Mall. I booked the Deluxe King room for the weekend and I was impressed with the space of the room. It was HUGE. I would say it was quite "Atas" feeling. The Bathroom was spacious as well and they provided alot of complimentary toileries. The room has water dispenser which was convinient. Iron and Ironing Board was provided as well. I would say the room is complete. I opted for the Breakfast Buffet and I was not disappointed with the food they served. Western cuisine to Local. Quite a wide spread I would say. You can be very full if you try every dishes. Tho room was SUPER DUSTY, Uncomfortable Pillows, Poor Check-out Service."

"The staffs were very helpful and friendly. The rooms and corridor has been newly renovated. The rooms are spacious, bed are comfy, room facilities are well arranged, toiletries are sufficient. This hotel deserves more than a three stars rating. Location is extremely good. The hotel are surrounded by most of the favourite/popular shopping centres and hawkers in Johor Bahru. Such as the tebrau hawker and KSL shopping mall just behind, pelangi just up a little, and a night hawker selling really delicious local food just across the road. All these places are within walking distance. Breakfast spread are considered good and atas (for the price you paying) with Egg station. I greatly recommend this hotel to everyone. Looking forward to my next visit. CONS: Shower heater abit slow in heating up the water. I have to let the water run for 15 minutes before I could step in. TV channels abit bland with local channels. Can be improved by adding some Movie Channels like Fox or HBO or Thrill. "

"This was the first time we've stayed in the hotel and I would certainly say that it won't be our last! Although the price of the room is a bit on the high side (compared to nearby hotels), I think the overall feel and room condition were value-for-money. The staffs were very friendly and it was really nice of them to allocate us to the highest floor (Level 23) even though they could not secure a double-bed room for us. We also tried the infinity pool at Level 25 and it was great! The pool was clean and the view was great! Lastly to add, the availability of Thai Odyssey (one of the value-for-money thai massage in JB) within the hotel and the close proximity to KSL Mall were icing to the cake. We will definitely recommend Holiday Villa Johor Bahru City Centre to our friends and family who are intending to stay in JB! Thank you for the great experience!"

More about Johor Bahru City Center

Just over the causeway from Singapore, Johor Bahru is an important manufacturing and business hub for Malaysia. The city’s top attraction, the Istana Besar boasts a distinct Anglo-Malay architecture and houses the museum where priceless treasures of the Royal Collection are showcased. The perfectly manicured gardens are a favorite for family outings, joggers, leisure walk or games of badminton. There are also a large number of beautiful shop-houses in the area, built in the 1920s, when traders from Arabia, India and China once came to trade spices and tobacco.

Hotels in Johor City Center offer convenient access to the area’s shopping bargains. As an important manufacturing hub for the region, shops can offer goods much cheaper than can neighboring Singapore and there are several large malls. The City Center is navigable on foot via a series of underpasses and walkways. Taxis operate on a voucher-and-meter system, and vouchers are bought from booths on the edge of the road.

The annual Chingay Procession (Feb/Mar) sees five deities representing the five major Chinese communities paraded through the city centre. The parade features 130-year old traditional lion, dragon and tiger dances, Chinese clowns, beautifully decorated floats and martial arts troupes.
