Hotel is in a prime location, with eateries and restaurants nearby. Some will say these are tourists traps... well.. as long as food is good and you check the price before ordering is ok.

hotel location is good and the price is cheap nearby there are lots of night foods and bar around. Althought the hotel is old and not very clean but still ok to stay. will be back for short stay again.

Location is prime, but hotel is old, need to be renovate.

Hello Mr. DEBANIK_B. You do not worry about culinary. Around the hotel you may have a lot of choices including local eateries, porridge, vegetarian till western food. The food cost it may spend around MYR. 5-10 per meal per person. It's all depends what kind of food you select and their item. Downstair the hotel you asked has Cafe. It's call Oldtown White Coffee for 24hours service. They also provide WiFi consider fast too. The Oldtown White Coffee cafe about the cost may spend a little bit expensive causes the class a bit higer than hawker place. 1 meal per person average the cheapest is take the cost around MYR.7-8 and normally is breakfast package.
To be honest the hotel rate now is more expensive comoare with before. Before the rate is super fantastic. But my personal is even hotel cost per night get higher but still very worth. Just for your information additional only, Malaysia's government is starting to collect tourist and local government tax per room per night. Means the hotel rate you pay must be add some mount for tax. That's compulsory and you can not hide this matter even you stay the cheapest hotel also you need to do.
Regarding about transportation go to Kuala Lumpur, from the hotel is not to far to Johor Bahru Bus Station. They are calling it Larking Bus Station. Johor Bahru has online taxi you may use like Uber or Grab Taxi. From the distance may take the cost MYR. 8-12 per way (around that because i forgotten also). If you take conventional taxi may double price and also need to negotiate with taxi driver causes they are never use metres machine.
From Johor Bahru to Kuala Lumpur normally is take 5hours. But average is only 4 to 4.5hours you may reach. It's depends about traffic during the way. For the bus ticket per person per way i am not sure and keep up to date. I think it should be still around MYR. 30++.
Hope my information if useful for you.
