Fraser Place Puteri Harbour, Johor

Gelang Patah
Location and facilities were great but let down by the stench coming from the common toilet which cause the whole room to smell too. The Good:: - Main bedroom bed was larger than a normal King size bed. It's either an Euro King or Super King size Comes with Nespresso coffee machine, washing, machine, dryer and dishwasher. Good for longer stay and self cooking. Area of Improvement:: (had feedback to counter staff) - Toilet was clean and tidy so suspect that the stench either came from the ventilation vents or the clogged pipes. Smell affect the whole room so had to close the toilet doors. - Main bedroom toilet sink was also clogged - Trip.Com showed 3 King size bed in description but 2 bedroom deluxe only comes with 1 x King and 2x Single. So it's misleading.
Amari Johor Bahru

Nice hotel. Room is bright and great location. But isn’t super clean. Hair and powder found on bed. Amenities don’t have cotton pad. Hair found in packaged earbud. Breakfast was pretty good as attached. Will stay again if price is reasonable. Without discounts it’s not worth it.
Forest City Marina Hotel
4.2/576 Reviews
Forest City Marina Hotel is a resort hotel by the sea with a view of Singapore. The receiptionist are very polite and helpful. We checked in at the hotel on 17 October 2020 and the whole check in process was fast and took us less than 10 minutes from queuing to getting the room keys. The room is very spacious and big. It is equipped with wifi connectivity, big screen tv, a variety of tv channels, a chiller, bathrobes and complimentary mineral water. The bathroom/toilet comes with a bathtub and separate shower and the size is big and spacious. The room also have a balcony facing the seaview and Singapore. The downside of the hotel: 1. It’s located very far from JB city and after 8pm, the Forest City seems to be a dead city. 2. Some of the facilities are not open to the public(eg. Only one swimming pool is open out of the many swimming pools, facilities around the resort are limited to the Marina Hotel and many shops are closed) 3. Some of the equipment/in room facilities require repair eg. Shower head 4. Aircond is not switched on in many areas(maybe due to low occupancy) The positive part of the hotel: 1. Very friendly and polite staff in the hotel from receiption, restaurant, security guards to the housekeeping team. Good job everyone. 2. The room is neat and tidy. Sufficient towels and amenities are provided. 3. Operator/receiption answer the phone call within three rings 4. They have promotion set meal at rm20 each which is affordable.
KSL Hotel & Resort

I've booked 2 rooms via I've took pictures of the half eaten food and food debris strewn around the table. There was rat in the room - 2706. I've bought 2 'siew pow' for the my next morning pre-breakfast snack and left it on the table next to the TV but was eaten by rat(s). I've shown the pictures to your reception staff but was told that they will send the cleaner ro clean up the mess, a solution which did not address the issue. It's not the cleaning up we are concerned about but the frustration and minor loss we suffered. Also, seems like the room they let out was renovated halfway through with the wall not painted and floor laminates not properly sealed.
Thistle Johor Bahru

City center of Johor Bahru
Room Number: 1128, 1129 Pros: - nice sea view - comfortable bed - separate bathtub and shower area - Huge pool (feels like a resort, with slide for children so very family friendly) - decent size gym - breakfast buffet had decent variety and taste (very value for money given cost of room) - staff were friendly and proactive Cons - Room shows serious signs of ageing. Even though could see that it was refurbished, things still look like they are falling apart - not sure if it’s just my room, but tv channels come and go. Sometimes it’s working and sometimes it’s not. Limited channels as well. - pillow was way too soft - My King size bed was actually two super single beds put together. - Only bath towels provided and it was very worn. No other towels provided. - Not really baby friendly as there hotel does not have baby shower tub. Thankfully room comes with a bath tub - sound insulation pretty bad. Could hear sounds from the corridor
Trove Johor Bahru

We had an early checked in for 1 room & got another slightly after 3pm. So we got to recharge ourselves & our kids had a great time in the bathtub. We had an extraordinary assistant by Mr Hafizi (receptionist) when we were having trouble in our grab food delivery. Breakfast buffet was delicious. If only can have more variety like roti canai, tosai, mee soto, laksa, chicken rice. Valet parking was excellent. Security did a great job. Keep it up. But should have standardised sheltered valet parking. Sheltered & non sheltered valet parking carry different prices. Main entrance to the lobby should have a ramp or slope to ease up the luggages movements. Gym doesn’t have treadmills, just heavy weights. Overall, nice place to stay in & safe for our family too. Thank you for having us. Will patronise again in the near future.

Just a causeway away from Singapore, Johor offers a rich tapestry of experiences, from exciting theme parks and historic sites to delectable local cuisine.

Always check with the nearest Malaysian embassy or consulate for visa requirements. Many countries are granted visa-free entry for tourism purposes.
