I stayed at the executive floor and the room is big, with two joined double beds, so the bed size is family size! Room comes with basic amenities, complimentary drinks in the fridge and a capsule coffee machine. I had the view of the straits. Staff are friendly, especially an elderly guy at the concierge, who was very friendly, polite...

Basically, other then sleeping, I did only 2 things while staying in the hotel, swimming and dining. I cannot use their fitness centre as it was locked when I explore over there. The swim and the semi-buffet was enjoyable. If I want to explore anything outside of the hotel, I need to walk some distances and it was either very...

Booked this hotel twice. It was a good quiet getaway place. One of the good affordable hotels in JB. Love the bathroom "marblish" tiling and layout. The pool is simple but relaxing and quiet ambience.

We went on Xmas weekend so the crowd was expected however check in took forever because of the slow service for the long queue. Room was okay, bed and bathroom were great. Just the side of the wall where the airconditioned is at needs to be repainted as molds have started to grow.

Ironing board provided is super dirty and disgusting. Will...

We had stayed one night at the hotel and thought it was too less. We will definitely stay again at the hotel. We had a room on a high floor offering a superb view of the strait and Singapore beyond. The room had two double beds so we didn't have to ask for an extra bed for our kids. The...

We were here many times when this hotel was newly built years back. However, we noticed that after many years later, the hotel need to do some upgrades, example toilet bowl flushing system is bad, there are some stains and cracks in the bath areas.
