Reviewed 31 January 2013

was travelling with 4 kids, thus was looking for a hotel which could provide me with 2 adjoining rooms, most other hotels either do not have adjoining rooms or could not guarantee. Also read reviews of other hotels, and decided to choose this hotel even though it is not the cheapest.

Booked the 2 bedroom family suite. When we went to the rooms, we were pleasantly surprise. The room was very spacious. there was a swimming pool, overlooking Johor Baru. The breakfast is also wonderful, with mixed of western and local dishes.

we rented a car during our time in johor, so i won't comment on location. Service, not bad, although could improve. One other thing, the bathroom is finish with tiles, which in my view is not meant for bathroom (same as the bedroom area), so be extra careful, as it is very slippery when wet.

Room Tip: There is some sort of club at the top floor, suggest you choose a room on the lower floors, if you a...

Supposed to be one of the best hotels in JB but its a pure disappointment.
front office got my requested bed configuration wrong, and couldnt change as it was on full occupancy. Linens are all torn at the edges. Low quality toilet roll. Bedsheets are dirty with some black stained. Property is lousily maintained. will not stay here again. Breakfast was mainly asian cuisine with little america/western items.

First time staying here and we return with wide smiles :)
Great experiences, from booking period to the check out process. Highly recommended to all.

PRE-STAY
We've made a 1-nite booking under Asiarooms.com and emailed to Grand Paragon Reservations unit just to check whether it got thru. Their response was very prompt and our request for Deluxe connecting room was noted immediately.
After few days, we've decided to extend our stays for another night and correspond thru email. Yet again, their reply was very fast and even though there's a several hiccups, the reservation officer, Joanne Yaw reliably and efficiently rectified it and our booking was confirmed with the ease of mind.

DURING STAY
We opt for the late check in at 6pm to 7pm. However, we arrive early around 5+ and was very delighted to hear that our rooms are ready. Check-in was a breeze. The manager (i forgot her name!) is very efficient and works at a very fast paced. It took only several minutes!

Our rooms on the 16th floor was spacious and cosy. The super single bed fits 2 Asian-sized adults. Bathroom was clean and spotless. Window view was amazing, we could see parts of Johor Bahru & even a bit of Singapore.

Breakfast is a simple affair. Usual Malaysian delights: Nasi Lemak & Roti Canai. Western dishes of cold cuts and assortment of bread and danish. Chinese cuisine of Seafood Porridge and Noodle Soup. All of them quite good and tasty.

Walking distance to Pelangi Shopping Mall with plenty of F&B choices such as Secret Recipe, Auntie Anne's, Nandos and many more. There's also carts along the way to Pelangi SM, selling Malaysian Favourites; Ramly Burger. (Not sure if it always there).

Grand Paragon, we will come again soon :)

We have stayed at the Hotel 4 times now and always find it to be great. The staff are friendly and helpful in all areas of the Hotel. The Breakfast is wonderful as are other meals. We like the situation of the Hotel in relation to eating and shopping of any kind, clothes, shoes, and also close enough to China Town shops. Taxis are easy to get and if not around the Staff will gladly call one for you. The Room Rates are very good and this will always be my choice of Hotel In Johore Bahru. We always hoilday over Christmas and New Year and find Johore Bahru a terrific place to be, day trips an be done quite easily.The Aircons in the room are very cool.

Room Tip: Higher floors re best for the view also when the rain comes across it is terrific to watch.

Came here as part of legoland. The rooms was really nice and clean and quite spacious. The beds was great with really nice pillows. breakfast was quite poor so I would recommend you can go out and eat. The location is really good as its very near KSL and immigration.
