Thistle Johor Bahru

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is nicely located and is well maintained with smiling staff but there are very few food options for vegetarians and the breakfast is not included with room which is quite surprising. The internet keeps disconnecting and the basin in the bathroom was cracked and dented in many places

Everything was smooth, and staff in general was very nice. At one lunch at the pool-side restaurant we had to wait 45 minutes for a kids portion of plain spaghetti, whereas everything else was served in a timely fashion.
