Straits View Hotel
Ranked #54 of 111 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed 26 December 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights. For its price, the hotel offers good value. But rooms cleanliness should be improved and breakfast selection needs to be added too. Location is okay at the danga bay but quite a distance to the town center. A cab will cost around 10RM each way.

Overall, an okay stay, nothing special.

Stayed here for 1 night with my wife. The road to this hotel is quite tricky; usually will miss the junction for first timer.
Hotel are not crowded and got many parking space. What surprise me is the room is quite big with nice view of the hotel's garden & straits to singapore.
It situated near to center of JB, so there's a lot of places to visit
Unfortunately the breakfast is not worth what I'm paying for with the accomodation package; a packed food of 'Nasi Lemak'.
Overall, recommended for couples.

Went to Straits view because of the reviews here. Was very disappointed. Room was average. There was a dead fly at the window and carpets were old and ratty. Air conditioner took a long time to start up. Location was inconvenient. No pool so brought my children to see the fish at the pond. Even that was a disappointment, water hasnt been cleaned for years. Breakfast was terrible. Only had coffee, orange juice,koko crunch and bread. Tip: There's actually some fried noodles but you have to ask the waiter, if you can find him. It will come wrapped in brown paper. For RM168 per night, I could have gone to Pulai Springs and had a better time. Worst thing is, I left my iphone charger in the room. Called them up the next day to get it back and they claimed they cant find it. I will never come back here again. Tune Hotel which is just nearby is much better!

I had to spend a night in JB, and looked up tripadvisor for hotel recommendation. Lo and behold, I came across the Straits View Hotel. Rated No 1, I decided to give it a shot. It was a major disappointment. A spider on the bed, leftover hair in the bathroom kind of sum up the experience. The friendly reception is the only bright spark.

Very nice hotel. The king size bed it's really comfortable and the room is very spacious and really clean. Plus the rate is also reasonable. The lobby design is great with lots of beautiful painting all over. Not only that the staff is really friendly and helpful. It's also quite close to Singapore border, will take about 10 minutes driving.

The hotel has been renovated in the last 4 years. The rooms and service has remained excellant. The staff are caring and polite. The best value in Malaysia.
