Positive Reviews

Modern revamped rooms.

Thistle Johor Bahru Hotel has recently undergone a revamp and the new look is exceptional. Rooms are elegantly styled and decorated in a fresh new palette that is totally in line with most top tier international hotels. Suites are spacious and clean and offer great views of the Straits of Johor and the city.

Excellent dining options.

Dining options at the hotel are excellent with a wide variety to suit all palettes. There are four dining options available in the hotel and all are exceptionally clean, modern and well-presented. An open kitchen concept where one can watch dishes being prepared is also quite an exciting feature and a fun way to wait for your meal to arrive.

Professional and friendly, multilingual service.

Hotel staff are extremely professional and present excellent multilingual service, making sure that all guests are welcomed and can be assisted without any communication problems. The majority of the staff are quite young which helps to keep the energy of the new-look hotel where it should be.

Negative Reviews

No hotel shuttle weekdays.

The hotel does not provide a regular shuttle service for guests looking to visit the centre of Johor Bahru. Guests must organise their own transportation which can be quite inconvenient and also costly.

No breakfast included.

While the hotel does provide a good buffet breakfast it is important to note that this is not included in the room rate and is charged for as a separate item in the same way as lunch or evening dining is.

Some noise issues.

Being a central city hotel does come with some noise issues which are generally more noticeable at night. There are also some issues with room air conditioners that can be quite noisy when in full swing.
