As the review title states this hotel is by far the best in the Johor Bahru area. I have stayed her for around 50 nights between December 2013 and June 2014. The service in general is good and attentive and the hotel is clean.
The food in the restaurant is generally very good with an excellent selection available at breakfast and a varied buffet for the evening meal. The one thing I think that really detracts from the excellent restaurant is that they allow people to eat breakfast in their work overalls which on occasions are less than clean - not what I would really expect from a 4 star establishment. Although I have rarely used the bar the prices are extortionate and I suggest you use the bars in the local area which are plentiful.
The gym and the pool are excellent facilities with all the equipment in good order.
One area that really could be improved on is the reception where it is not uncommon to find only one member of staff at peak times - very frustrating when you know there are other staff just in the back office. This happened this morning (10/6) but fortunately the manager saw this and went and chased them out.
