Amari Hotel Johor Bahru

Stayed at Amari Hotel Johor Bahru in Superior room with King Size bed. This hotel is new and is not fully completed. At that time, the swimming pool and Gym were not ready yet.  Amari Johor Bahru is located directly opposite the Komtar JBCC mall. The location of Amari is good; as it is opposite Komtar JBCC and City Square mall. However crossing the road from Komtar JBCC to the hotel is a hassle. You need to dash across the busy road when the traffic gets lighter. Hopefully they could built a pedestrian bridge soon.

To  access  Amari hotel, walked towards the entrance of the small shopping mall in the building, take the escalator up and then walked towards the door out of the mall towards another entrance door. Thereafter, take the lift up to the 6th floor and it will bring you to the hotel lobby. Rather strange way of accessing a hotel; but it is fine with me.

Check in was fast and the staff at the check in counter were courteous and helpful.  The superior room itself was quite compact in size but sufficient for 2 persons. Everything in the room were new. The king size bed was firm and the pillows were soft and comfortable. Sufficient toiletries were provided in the bathroom. The shower was great but you need to wait a while for the hot water to flow into the shower heads. Unlike most hotels, there is no need to slot your room card into a  card slot on the wall ( there is none ) to turn on the lights and air conditioned. It is a Smart room; and the TV in the room is also a Smart TV.

Breakfast was served in a beautiful restaurant located on the same floor as the main lobby.  There were limited choices of breakfast spread available.  As compared to similar hotel liked Doubletree Hilton JB and Renaissance Hotel; the breakfast served at Amari is rather basic and limited in choices. I am not too sure whether it is due to the fasting month of Hari Raya or because the Hotel is not fully operational yet.  Anyway this is a something that hotel can easily improved upon.

Overall, Amari Johor Bahru is a nice hotel to stay. It is conveniently located near the  2 malls and CIQ JB Sentral.  The room was comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. Didn’t get to see the swimming pool as it was not ready yet. Yes, I will come back soon.

 

Amerin Hotel Johor Bahru

Stayed in Amerin Hotel, Johor Bahru for one night. It is a relatively new hotel and is located opposite Perling Mall. If you are taking public transport from Singapore, take the CW3 bus from Jurong East Bus Interchange. It will bring you to Perling Mall and simply cross the busy main road – you will arrive at Amerin Hotel. The CW3 bus terminal is located just outside Perling Mall; this is where you take the same CW3 bus back to Singapore.

Amerin Hotel is a 17th storey hotel and is the newest and most impressive hotel in Taman Perling area. The check in was smooth and quick. There is a RM100 room deposit if you are not using your credit card. The lift was fast and spacious. There is a 7-11 shop and a cafe located within the hotel itself. That makes it easy for travelers to buy drinks or toiletries; as well as have a cup of brewed coffee.

Morning breakfast was served at a small restaurant. The breakfast spread was limited but sufficient enough for a hearty breakfast. The swimming pool was a compact size for a quick dip at the pool. There were plenty of tables and chairs to relax and get a tan.

Amerin Hotel is a good hotel to stay if you are visiting Taman Perling, Legoland or Bukit Indah. The hotel rate was inexpensive ( very economical ) and it is value for money.
