“Overpriced for facilities and location.”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

Its business hotel near university technology Malaysia . The corporate rate for one night with one breakfast was RM 150.00 which I think is 50% higher than standard rate in Johor bharu town. Hotel is infront of an abandoned shopping mall project so view is not present. No Internet facility in room wifi not working. Internet service is charged additional at rm 10 per day .shower door was broken . Space for toilet is very narrow not not suitable for anyone above 70 kg of weight. ( very narrow space for w/c).room carpet is worn out and discolored. Lobby is large but there is no sofa or sitte for the guest to sit and read . Breakfast was very limited ,not worth for the price paid.

We took a twin room and triple room which cost RM220 and RM245 respectively. The price level was similar to New York hotel/blue wave which had much better location and better rooms. Rooms were old, dark and not properly cleaned. There were rubbish in the drawers and stains on the bed sheets. Both rooms were smelly and the floor were dirty.
Our cars parked at b3 and there were no lifts connecting to the lobby so we had to climb the stairs with our bags. The carpark was wet and smelly.
Breakfast was inclusive (RM22 per pax), the food choices were very limited and tasted really bad.

Will definitely not return to this hotel again! With such quality the price is utterly expensive!

We parked thecar at the 2nd floor, basement and had to go up by stairs. I had problems with my knee and that really posed a negative picture of the hotel! The friendly staff with all the broad smiles make up for this. We were given a standard deluxe room but we changed to a family suite; bigger and have a better view! We loved the big bathroom with a tub and separate shower - my daughter had a 3 hours lovely time in the tub as soon as we checked in. The room was clean but had a mouldy smell at times. The breakfast was just average; I had expected some varieties but this is a case of no choice; take it or leave it!
Overall for a three-star hotel the room price was rather steep but we enjoyed our stay here despite the shortcomings. The staff is a plus!!!

Room Tip: Check the room first and make sure it can make you happy even for a night stay!

We were recently at Good Hope Hotel in Johor while on a road trip around Malaysia. We needed a place to stay that was clean and inexpensive and yet family friendly. We were happily suprised by the "value-for-money" the hotel offered. We booked the suite and it was huge! Large King bed, very well air conditioned, TV and all the basic amenities. The King bed was suprisingly comfy.Even the bathroom was huge. And we got a really decent breakfast to boot!

The hotel was a little dated and needs to be updated.. but quite well maintained... and very clean! I don't exactly remembered the rate we paid, but it was lower then the rate published on the internet and well worth it for the size.

Location was quite good too. Quite but yet close to the town center. Parking available too. The staff was only pretty friendly.

Room Tip: Check their website for offer rates or call first!

Worse Hotel. Even the near by budget hotel are better than Goodhope hotel. No free WiFi, defect of tv, power trip, air cond not funtioning, bed bugs.

Room Tip: Near by budget hotel far more better than goodhop.
