Most taxi drivers will not know JO Hotel, it is better you tell them the old "Tropical Inn". This building is old but is still under renovation for more improvement like lift and restaurant etc. We have the family's room for 4 pax which is big and clean. The room has a separate sitting area and bedroom with good aircon, tv, fridge, kettle, wifi, comfortable bed and bathroom with all necessities. The only downside is there is no eateries in the area, but not a big problem as you are able to do a short walk to Komtar, City square and Night market. The staff is pleasant and helpful. Overall, a good place to stay if you love shopping area this area.

Hotel was previously known as Tropical Inn Hotel.

Few minutes walk to KOMTAR and City square to shop or eat.. but alternatively, we jz get food thru Foodpanda or Grabfood Apps since the hotel do not have any restaurant in the building.

Room was clean and met with all the basic requirements. Furniture was quite tired looking but the bed was comfortable.

The only thing that I would point out was, the hotel is still undergoing renovation and we were woken up on both saturday and sunday morning with drilling sound. But if you jz need a night sleep, this hotel is truly sufficient.

No In-Room dining..

Lobby looks nice.

Overall.. with the amount we pay, Will recommend and will come back.

Quite old bldg, cracks evywhr in the room and bathroom with ants crawling. Construction nearby and next to road side so could hear noises from speeding bikes at night from level 22. Great view though, can even check out the traffic to/fro Spore-JB. Queen bed room quite spacious but things are a bit rundown incl. bed linens with holes and marks. Air-con only hv 3 options: low, medium, high which unhelpful in adjusting room temperature. Actually slept without air-con as it was chilling enough at level 22. Free wifi inside room with good connection.
Stayed for 5days and hse keeping service tip top. You get the usual toiletries and also free drinking water and coffee teas likes. Comes with free breakfast perusing coupons which you need to collect from the counter every day. Breakfast is good with choices of nasi lemak, noodles, porridge, cereals, bread, salads, etc.
Location wise within walking distance to JBCC but can turn out to be a tiring walk on hot day and if you hv already been walking whole day. Option to take grabcar ard RM5-6. Overall staff met throughout period of stay were friendly and helpful.

Room tip: Higher level floor for the view and cooler temperature; away from lift area for quieter night sleep

This hotel is aging, could maybe be looked after a little better but still has its grandeur about it. I rate based on what i paid for and expected to get from the hotels advertising. And it met those expectations in all except one respect. It states "free internet". It is actually free but virtually unusable. The staff are lovely and very helpful (except with the internet). The rooms are nicely priced for what they are and the hotel is in a great location, if you are incoming from Singapore.
