“Clean place, great value and loads of food places around.”
Reviewed 25 October 2011

The rooms are clean, the staff there are friendly, have wifi, lcd screen tv and great tv selections too! I love the deco of the place. There are many shops ALL around, with cafes, restaurant, a mall, clothes shops, foot reflexology centres, and massage centres (they are not dodgy looking). I like J Hotel so much so that for business trips, i will usually book at this hotel if it's not too far away from my client's place.

There is a cheap and nice Japanese restaurant just around the corner, at the back row of the hotel. Walk to the left of the hotel, and go to the back row. It's always packed, so go earlier if you do not like to wait. One of the best I've eaten!

Only downside about here is that there is no breakfast provided, so you need to stock up on your food as the eating shops do not open so early in the morning.

Definitely recommend this place for a short stay!

A friend recommended this hotel to us. Great location, walking distance from Sutera Mall.
We stayed in the Mini-boutique room which is spacious and clean. Unique & interesting room. The staffs there are very friendly and helpful. There are a few restaurants around, prices of the food in the restaurants are reasonable.

The cons are: No bathtubs. As mentioned by other reviewers, the pillows are relatively hard.

This journey to Johor Bahru, was my wife idea's.
Found out this hotel from google. Then try to browse the website, we found out the design very unique & catchy. We booked for 8 July until 10 July.
The location to the hotel very easy accessible. Located in Sutera Utama, very convenience for stay, eat, shop, & fun. The hotel site in middle of the shop complex, where got a lots of Cafes & Restaurants, Boutiques & Hair-dressing, Entertainments, & only walking distance to Sutera Mall.
We amazed when step in to the hotel and saw grand piano on the lobby. We booked Superior room, the room size is enough for couple stay. All the furniture still brand new i think. The wi-fi still ok. We didn't try the hotel foods, as arround the hotel got alots of food for us to try :)

Room Tip: We only tried the Superior Room, but so far we very like it. If got chance, we would like to try ot...

This place is just fine. stayed here because had an early flight out of Sentai and did not want to have to do an early morning rush from SIngapore. It is neither near JB Central nor the airport, sort of half way. There is a decent mall a short walk away with lots of restaurants. took the city bus here, but this is not recommended since there is a good walk from the highway with no sidewalks.

The J Hotel is a great find. 3 minute walk to Sutera Mall which has great shopping and a huge selection of restaurants, This could be said of the whole area surrounding this establishment. The staff in particular Rafise are a real credit to the J. The pictures on the web are a true reflection of what you see is what you get. We had the Superior room and stayed 3 nights. 24 hour security together with modern TV with good selection of channels made it almost better than some 4 star options. Location was good for us as we had some appointments in the area so staying at any of the other more popular hotels would have meant more traveling time/taxi fare etc. From the Terminal that you arrive by taxi or bus from Singapore it cost us $20 ringgit to get there. We were prepared with a google map of the location and that together with a quick call to his base made it easy for driver to find. We need to be back in April and will definitely be staying at the J again. Another large shopping area is Jusco at Bukit Indah about 15 minutes away. The only suggestion I have is a screen for the shower so that water doesnt go everywhere in the bathroom and perhaps slightly better lighting in the room. Alternatively a lamp on the side of the bed so that one could read if they wanted to. The J has a variety of other rooms so we may find ourselves checking out something different for the next visit. Thanks to the team at the J and we look forward to our next visit.
