    average stay”

    it was a last minute decision to stay for one night in JB over a public holiday hence this hotel was one of our last resort. Room was spacious, but furnitures were old. we had 2 queen sized bed in our room. bed was comfortable. no toiletries were provided. it was difficult to get a cab from hotel since it was raining. we managed to walk to KSL mall, which took us about 30mins. stay only if you do not have high expectations.

    Fair enough..”

    10 minute ride to JB Sentral by bus, costs you RM1,30, faster by taxi around RM 6. The hotel is easy to find, above a restaurant. The room is okay, not very clean but not dirty either. Got some problems with the water. It does'n run well. If you flush the toilet then the water on other taps will run slower..almost not running in the sink.
