the room is comfortable and provides a good view of the straits and clock tower (deluxe with seaview) and it is inexpensive for a room with such a standard
Really nice luxury hotel. Staff went out of their way to help. Car and driver hire for trip to Singapore was hassle free (but not actually cheap!) and it was door to door to my hotel in downtown Singapore in under an hour - unlike public transport which was queued up on the bridge for hundreds of meters. Too far from downtown JB and not easy to get transport if you dont know where you want to be. Shuttles only at weekends.
Clean room, efficient room service, and large swimming pool.
I liked the room, comfort and cleanliness of the hotel are marvellous! And of course the friendly reception staff! Two thumb up!
i always come for short business trip. this is 2nd time thistle jb but many times during hyatt name. however, the reception didnt know i have been there before and requested me to fill in the form. it will be nice to hear "welcome back". i like beef bacon for breakfast but the bread varieties are too few. beef bacon should be available everytime i come. concierge was not seen this time to open door. the rate is just nice at high side as the decor not really business luxury. its in between. thistle PD is very family but quite luxury look. suggest you add more potted plants at lobby, its too bare at present. overall, i am happy. room service is fast when i asked for the paper which was not delivered to me. tq. as above. and should give some kind of priviledge to those who have been there such as special rate, fruit basket etc..
the ambient is very nice! the carpark is very far and separated from the hotel
aircon was faulty and was very warm
Very nice atmosphere and friendly staffs. Access to the city is easy since it is only a few kilometers away.
Although the exterior and foyer of the hotel looked beautiful it was a different story when we went to our room. It had not been cleaned - the carpets hadn't been cleaned neither had the surfaces of the bedside cabinets which were sticky and dusty. As for the bathroom the toilet required a good clean and the shower was covered in mould and mildew. Not a good advertisement for this hotel and certain not in keeping with other Thistle Hotels we have stayed in. Very poor. The restaurant staff didn't seem to understand what we were saying and the service was a bit slow. Breakfast juice was watered down apple juice and diluting orange. Certainly not what we expect in any hotel. We certainly would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
The knock and knock service is great. My wife and i made use of this service to book for cab and ask for room service. Well done to all Thistle's staff that made the stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary a memorable and enjoyable one.
the view,vry relax and accomodating.
I liked the cleanliness of the hotel and the friendliness of the staff. They acceded to our requests to ensure that we had the most pleasant stay. Waitress Renuka at the club lounge was the most thoughtful and friendly staff member. We were very pleased with her amazing service. I wish the Club Lounge served more food and a greater variety.
Room was clean, grounds were beautiful, pool was clean, food was good Room had been smoked in, room needs more information like a map,
The place was very family-oriented. The staff were nice. The service was slow.
good staff, the room is spacious, the room is clean. 1. the swimming pool tiles are very dirty. 2. the food in breakfast is not nice 3. the restaurant's lights are dirty (breakfast buffet)
nice rooms, clean
Your very friendly staff
The staff were really friendly and approachable. It is so far the best hotel i've stayed in Johor. Apparently, there were blood stains on the carpet and bed sheets.
Without the overall staff being,very friendly and helpful, I don't think I could write down a single thing. The porters and concierge desk especially was helpful. Hotel is not up to previous standard. In room services lacking (only 1 glass per day, using standard sheets on King bed, etc.) Restaurant and room service fare not up to standard (in fact some what quite distasteful). Driving around JB is complicated and stressful at best. This hotel is very difficult to locate and return to by car. Parking lot and elevator has a very "used" look. Meal buffets are crowded so the traffic flow needs to be improved to reduce the wait times.
good location,in the city centre near to shopping centre and custom check point to Singapore. no complaint
The Puteri can be more comfortable than that...
The pillows failed the standard of a 3 star hotel; awful smell. The room pictures showed in website did not reflect the actual room which is at the old wing. We requested for two rooms, both single bed but request not fulfilled. The rooms were adjacent without the service door in between. Another disappointment and inconvenience for the family. The noise insulation was really bad.
friendly staff, very helpful. not that I can think of
Service is no good. Not value for money.
We enjoyed our stay, the hotel has a great central location and is clean and well maintained. The breakfast was excellent. A bargain at the price we paid.
freindly staff - nice rooms, nice pool area + excellent location down town Breakfast buffet can be improved, but OK
Room is very comfort Parking in front of the hotel should be free
facilities are impressive and good value for money,wide variety of food at buffet breakfast but mainly asian oriented food Pool was fullof day visitors and their children, so impossible to swim in the kidney shaped pool,shame. The decor and genearl fabric of the establishment was looking tired. Only a taxi or your own car will find the place, the roads around the cause way are now a nightmare!
one of the best Hotel I stayed in Johor Bahru. Congratulation to Staff etc. The Hotel has a unique niche, not seen by myself for some time In getting Dinner, the service was good, except the kitchen was slow, food however was good
Spacious room and courteous helpful staff. I was early at check-in and the friendly young lady at Reception offered me a smoking room that she said didn't smell and she was right. Room - an apartment - was large and homely. Certianly good value for money!
As a Singaporean on biz, the hotel facing Singapore allows use of our local mobile connection. The location is hard to find. The in-room Internet connection is slow or not working at all. Should allow for opt out of Breakfast and offer a better room rate. This avoids wastage.
Big room n big bed
location b/fast is rather simple, despite classy hotel.
Room was large, got 2 queen bed and also managed to squeeze in a baby cot. Rather convient location with shopping mall near by. And a new mall coming up just down the road by Q1 2011. But very dusty. Got a shock when we had to shift some furniture around to fit the cot - found medicine,seeds etc under the soft and thick layer of dust behind the glass/cup. Front office want to charge me for the extra bed requested during reservation, but never use/call on site, they told me it's for my 3rd adult charges and that they have to pay it to bookings.com. I had to reason out with them.
good selection of restraunts, near shopping center.
Room Is very clean and neat, Hotel staff are also very nice,friendly and answer to all our doubt. The room service is also very fast and efficient. The bathtub is slightly smaller even for 1 to squeeze in.And the buffet breakfast should have more variety of food for choice.The jacuzi and swimming pool is also slightly smaller and looks abit old and dirty.
The comfort and how large the room is! Room service foods are way overpriced.
