Firstly if you are staying in JB is must be because you have to, as its not a place you would chose to stay at for pleasure ! Got upgraded to an executive room, very spacious,comfy bed. Suprised there was no seperate shower, so its a stand in the shower and hold the hose affair !
Nice pool area, very welcoming on a hot afternoon, it was deserted, every time I used it. There is a train track directly behind the hotel so ask for a front room. TV - chronic ! Only one english channel repeating the same old stuff! I now know all about Kevlar and why aeroplane tyres dont burst on landing (in great detail!!!)
Breakfast buffet , good choice of food. I took my second cup of coffee up to my room after breakfast so I could drink whilst getting ready for work, when I went downstairs to leave I was accosted/treated like a criminal and told that I wasnt allowed to take a cup of coffee up to my room- what a load of rubbish that is ! Also this prides itself on being a business hotel so why the daily internet fee then - very outdated !! A few tips on JB. This was my first trip here single woman business traveller. Arrived at Larkin bus station, first time I havent felt safe in Malaysia, the taxi drivers surround you and tell you that all the other taxi drivers are robbers and liars and dont go with them ! Apparently ive learnt since there are lots of cab drivers from Larkin that drive passengers out of town , rob then dump them. The fare should be no more than 10-20 myr, Larkin to Mutiara, or from Senai airport 25/30myr. Holiday Plaza next to hotel, not great, Mc Donald and Kfc, lots of cheap shops , chemist and very expensive not so great fake handbags etc. Cant wait to get over the causeway to the safety of Singapore, cant believe the difference in the two places considering they are so close! On the whole JB is not a safe place so be aware of bag snatching and take your jewellery off in public. Wont be back !
