“Average hotel for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

I stayed in the Zen Zeng Hotel for 1 night. I have request for twin bed but they give me double bed. I ask to change room but unfortunately the twin bed room was full. So I took the room because I was excessively tired.Room was ok but very comfortable bed.Toilet very clean (kinda happy about that). The receiptionist on the night shift very nice to me. However, its average hotel for money. If you looking for a budget hotel you should come to Zen Zeng Hotel.

This hotel is very good for quite and relaxing stay and its steel not far from city. The hotel provide a very good clean, comfort and spacious room. This hotel provide tooth kits which other budget hotel don't, they also provide a simple breakfast. This is the first time I came across a budget hotel providing this facilities. They also provide car park and car parking ticket.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a stopover whilst travelling from singapore up malaysia. The first impression wasnt great as its down a dirty back street wear locals are basically living on the street. When in the hotel is got better. It wasnt anything special but for the price you pay you cant complain. Main shopping malls and eateries are a 10 minute walk away or if you want to go to the other side of JB its about 7 ringgit in a taxi. The breakfast was disappointing as if you wanted anything than toast and coffee you had to pay extra although breakfast is included. Overall its an ok hotel nearby to everything for a good price.

They always say that a photograph can tell a thousand words. But in the case of this hotel, the photograph shown on the internet certainly did not say anything about the hotel. As far as I am concern, I always look at the lobby first to have a rough idea about what to expect. In this case, the lobby was small and simple, and the room was not much different. But then you certainly cannot expect a BMW when you only pay the price for a Kancil.

One look at the bed and the cupboard certainly took me back to my childhood years. Now that is how old the hotel and its furniture. But surprisingly, the bed, although it looked like it had seen everything, was quite comfortable.

Just when I thought I have finally settled in, the hotel threw up yet another surprise...in the form of trains. With the railway track running parallel to the hotel at the rear of the building, there is no surprise that you will feel as though you are sleeping at a train station. And in the silence of the night that can really jolt you from you sleep.

The location of the hotel is also another headache. For someone from out of Johor Bahru, finding this hotel is quite a task, no thanks to the lack of signage to direct you to the hotel. Hidden behind a row of shophouses meant that you will not be able to see the hotel from the main road.

So the million dollar question is...will I come back...? I don't think so unless I have no other choice.

Was feeling like get cheated by the photo shown on website. It's a really old hotel and quite dusty in the room. And I was very "lucky" to stay in a room with air-conditioner not function well, make noise all night long and not cold at all!

Was stuck in JB and there was no public transport to Singapore at 1230midnight.
Called the hotel reception to checked whether do they have any standard room... The reception told me that they have only a room available. So i board a cab from JB CIQ straight to Zen Zeng Hotel.

The exterior of the hotel looks very bad but the interior quite good.

Paid RM73 + RM27 refundable deposit.

I was surprised when they told me the price is inclusive of a breakfast. What?!! RM73 inclusive of Breakfast? Thats excellent!!!

I will come again in future.

A tad musty upon entry our room with some ceiling mould issues but other rooms much worse we saw...still most liveable our standard double for RM73 a night with breakfast. 15 minutes walk from City Square...WI-FI was quick but only 1 English channel on the TV...air-con and hot water all good and good comfy beds...reception staff efficient and friendly...safe and secure and good enough for a couple of nights...

Room Tip: Choose a front or side room away from the train line at the back...
