Bought online with non refundable deal we were trapped. Not sure what was worse; the surly front desk staff that couldn't be bothered, the lime green water in the swimming pool, the mould covered bathroom, the lack of hot water, the cracks in the window big enough to stick my fingers through, the dodgy back street location, rubbish aircon, impossible...

Stayed for 1 night. For online booking, the price cheaper than you walk in to the hotel. I booked for 2 superior room. It was last minute plan. We were given connecting room. Tq to the nice receptionist, Ms Ain if not mistaken. Room okay but a little dusty at the floor. Our room rate included breakfast. Breakfast was great!!....

We checked in rather late and given a room at level 3. The room is very basic, more like a hostel with two single beds, cupboard, cool box, and coffee...

My wife, my daughter (7) and I booked hotel sentral in Johor for a Christmas break. The reason we chose it was because of its vicinity to the Singapore causeway and ease to get around. On arrival at the hotel the lobby is clean and tidy, with the staff being fairly helpful. After a saga with their card machine not...

This hotel is absolute rubbish! With the price that you may, you would assume a decent place to stay but you were wrong! The rooms were small with cracks and water droplets on the wall. And with a strong stench of cigarette smell. It does not come with hair dryer so make sure you bring your own. Parking is hard...
