JB Central Hotel
Ranked #100 of 109 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed 4 January 2010

Stayed with a girl friend at room 1813. This hotel is all about extremely convenient location, being right next to City Square mall and the Malaysian customs building. There is a 24-hour Indian coffee shop beside the hotel too, to pander to your late-night cravings. Delicious roti channai and tea!

Since we were on the 18th floor, the hotel offered stunning views of JB city, spanning even Singapore. And it was an extremely spacious room for RM138. We had lotsa space to dance and jump around after getting drunk!

However, it was a smoking room, so non-smokers might not have enjoyed the musty smell. And be warned, while the toilet is of 3-star standards, the floor gets extremely slippery, so much so that my friend fell!

Formerly Merlin Hotel.
It's 120 RM.. so don't expect 5 stars standard. It's 3 star standard for its location and service but 2 star for everything else... The room is spacious and if you ask for a good view, you'll get it most of the time.. Ask for level 18 and above (even-numbered rooms have better view of johor) Bathroom is a little old and dirty.. but works well... If they renovate the hotel, it would definitely be a 5 star.
