Walkable distance to KSL but it is like up and down the "slope". Weird breakfast arrangement as breakfast voucher was not issue on check in. Staff told us to come to get the breakfast voucher from the reception before going M floor for breakfast. Why such hassle? The next morning when I wanted to collect the breakfast vouchers, I was told my room breakfast vouchers was already given. I just came down, what does that mean? I need to make some noise before they give me another set of breakfast voucher but it was under another room number. They should be issue them on check in and this wouldn't have happened. Room is spacious and comfortable. Nice rain shower bathroom and fast Wi-Fi connection. If you stayed over Monday night, night market is within walking distance.
For the price paid ($177 for 4 nights + breakfast buffet for 2), you get what you pay for. The room was small, the shower head was leaking and the toilet paper, towels and bedsheets were stained (had to request for new ones). Not much variety for the breakfast buffet but the fruits were fresh. Location wise, it is situated a plaza with food and groceries and walkable distance to KSL. However, I would suggest taking a taxi.
I read one of the reviews that she booked this hotel to celebrate a birthday and requested for decorations in the room and actually got it. So my boyfriend and i were just thinking of whether we should stay for the night after doing some visitings, and we were looking for affordable yet convenient location to KSL since we would hang out there till late. And i managed to grab the last room here at 1pm on the same day. Made my request in the box during booking - requested for a birthday decoration as it would be a surprise + an anniversary staycation. You know how such special requests usually wont go through to the hotel, or maybe some hotels just dont care / bother. So i tried my luck and left a request whether i get it or not it'll just be a bonus since i already got to book the room at a steal! :) But to my surprise, i actually received an email reply from the hotel to say they have noted my requests and will get it done. I replied back and told them if they cant make it in time for my check in at 4pm, they can do it by 10pm. But by about 3pm, they replied that the decoration has already been done and i could check in anytime. I was really impressed. We walked over from KSL about 7mins walk, and upon check in i was told that the hotel actually gave us a free room upgrade. So instead of 1 queen bed, we actually got an extra single bed in the room. Which was a really nice gesture. Just nice my sis was in JB too so she came along and we had a mini birthday celebration for my bf. I would really like to thank the staffs of Hallmark Regency Hotel especially those who had replied to my emails during the course of my pre-stay and stay (cos i had other carpark questions as well). Thanks for letting us have such a memorable and wonderful stay, and at such an affordable price. I would definitely recommend my friends and come back for my future staycations in JB. :) 5 stars is definitely not enough! heh Cheers!
Big room Nice Short 1 day stay in Johor Bahru.. Friendly staff, clean room. Parking only street parking available, so not to convenience during the day.. We would see later at night, if it's easier Thank you
Booked two nights stay for two rooms and requested for smoking room during booking. I was shocked upon arrival, no smoking room at all. But overall stay is good and can say the breakfast is just a simple ones.
The hotel is within walking distance to KSL . There is a hawker center just behind the hotel which sells local hawker food. No hotel parking but hotel staff takes note of car number. Security is good as the lifts only operate with key card. Bedroom is spacious and clean . Bathroom has basic amenities. Bed is a bit hard but ok for 2 nights stay. Breakfast was not fantastic but sufficient. Hotel is within walking distance to Pelangi shopping, 7 eleven and many eating places. This hotel is a good alternative to KSL hotel as it is so much affordable. If U are familiar with this area, this is a good location hotel.
Parking was not easy as no private car park. Park at your own risk. Lobby was nice. Check in was fast. Staff were friendly We stay in family room. 1Queen bed and 2 SS bed. Spacious. But sadly. Everywhere stated smoke free but whole lift lobby to room including our room Smell of smoke. Air-conditioning even at 16 cannot even cool down the room. Cups provided are broken. Bath tub looks dirty. Many of the lights in the room was blown without repair.. TV for oversea channel had no sound. Call them to fix but they say antenna was on top roof and only tomorrow the technician is coming... What the use?? Overall experience not good
Hotel is old and there is a musty smell in the room. During our stay, there was some ge tai activities at the side of the hotel and there was singing all the way into midnight. We had the corner room and wifi is extremely weak. Price is good for the location and if you are not fussy.
I have been to johor bahru for many short trips and overnight trips. Always wanted to stay at this hotel. But it is always fully booked. However I was Lucky enough to be able to get a Twin room for a night. Amazingly the room was huge and everything was great. Toilet was clean,water was strong, bed was comfortable. Air conditioning was working well. Impressed by the low rates that the hotel offers. Definitely must try to stay here if you are ever to overnight in johor bahru. Excellent choice !
