Merdeka Hotel Kluang”

the deluxe king-size bed was big enough to comfortably accomodate my wife and 5-year old daughter

Had a pleasant 1 night stay at this hotel with my wife and 5-year old daughter. The hotel which was recently re-furbished (31 Aug 2014) boasts the first hotel to have a lift in kluang in 1963. The room is large and clean, the deluxe king-size bed is bigger than your normal king-size bed and the air-con was cold enough, the tv works fine. Very basic (no fridge, no microwave but there is a kettle to boil water) but comfortable room which i heartily recommnend for travellers to kluang. Value for money too. They allowed us to check out at 1pm and the staff were always polite and friendly.

Decent hotel for stay”

This hotel is ok and is interesting with it having the oldest lift in Kluang city. Although the lift could be a little scary (with it being the oldest and all), but its a eye opening experience. The manager of the hotel is friendly and would sit with us during breakfast for a quick chat. Room is spacious and overall experience is good.

A Boutique Hotel with a Historical Story”

Cant expect any better for a hotel in the small town of Kluang, Johor. One of the better boutique hotel there with a rich historic history coupled with its colonial concept feel and views of the Gunung Lambak - which is something I missed waking up to! The stay was comfy and relaxing. Just a stone throw away from Kluang town where you can get all the food!

Room is quite big (corner room) with window view of Kluang town and i am able to open my room window early in the morning for very fresh air. I will definitely choose to stay in this hotel again. But if the tv can upgrade to bigger size with USB port, can score full mark from me!

Mountain View will be best ”

Staff were courteous and friendly, no fridge or hair dryer in room but can be requested from front desk/ housekeeping. Housekeeper also very patient with our repeat request to change kettle. Room is clean and spacious. We got a view of the adjacent garden cafe, if you would like Mountain View, have to request in special request. The elevator sure is something ancient, but very interesting. The walls are pretty thin, can hear upstairs and hallway walking and talking. Not very good for light sleeper. WiFi is fastest at night, acceptable during the day. Location is good provided that you drive. Nothing is too far away. Overall a happy stay and will stay again when I visit Kluang.

Breakfast is nothing to shout about but.....”

Simple breakfast with fried rice, fried noodles, fried mee hoon and fried eggs. Coffee and tea with cordial as drinks. Hotel is clean, well renovated, spacious, cold air cond. Oldest and first lift in Kluang built in 1964. Very friendly staff. True fact... My son saw a figure in the middle of the night picking up things from the floor in the room. He thought was his mother. He went towards the figure as he wanted to go to the toilet but she disappeared. She was about 5ft 5in tall. Looked like Malay woman in the dark. We were in room 109. We are not afraid as it did not harm us or do anything bad.

Came to Kluang for KKM course at Hospital Kluang”

Old hotel renovated to keep up with changing times. Has honor of having first elevator installed in Kluang. No closet, only hook on wall. Room quite dark, poor lighting at table so can't do reading there. Nice, big and comfy toilet. Staff very pleasant and helpful, including security guard uncle outside (very nice Indian chap). Current cook is good, u must try the nasi lemak merdeka, really worth it, fried chicken has an interesting sweet tang, miss it now. One club and exotic dining a minute's walk away. Nice view of the mountain.

Hotel was nice, and value for money. It is a little bit far from Kluang town. Facilities was average. And the heater and light in bathroom room was keep blinking when on concurrently. It was quite annoying, we had to take shower either without bathroom light, or without heater. We didn't make complaint until next day as we only stayed there for 1 day.
