We stayed here here for 5 days from 17th July 2013. Its been said that the property is a recent acquisition by the Sentral Hotel Consortium. Steven the Property Manager and Sharon the Housekeeping Manager are doing a great job given a good hear to Guests fair feedback. Obviously with acquisition you have the try and test phase for various shortcomings which I am sure will be fixed in no time. The pool area is pleasant and we had it for ourselves during this visit.The rooms 1005 and 1006 which are in fact triples are adequately fitted. Room 1006 in fact has a long seating area by the window which should double up for a lying area. I am said that all rooms in the hotel ending in the 05 series have this feature. The rain shower in the room are a great stress reliever. The buffet breakfast spread was adequate with a slight variation being done every day. Newspapers are available on request. Tea / Coffee making facility is adequate. Their is an ironing station on every floor. Day shift reception staff are exceptionally helpful. The restaurant staff including the kitchen staff are all similarly very pleasant and keep the spread filled up at all time. The coffee is great. The Universal Studio Package and Legoland Packages are great and fair buys here The room was cleaned and nice to sleep whether you like it or not on a daily basis..Location of this .hotel is in a good location i.e. a very short run RM 10/- from the taxi sta. Do always remember to use the red taxi unless you have RMs to throw around on a blue cab which has a rather speedier meter run. A good international food court and a mall experience can also be found very close to the hotel at Johor Bahru City Square. Will be staying a night at the Hotel Sentral Melaka tonight will do a write up upon completing the experience there. Will be returning to Hotel Sentral Johor Bahru on 23rd July 2013 to fly out of Senai Airport to Lankgawi.
