“Always nice to be here...”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

I have known this hotel since i was bachelor 18 yrs ago. It has remained the same extrenally though much refurbishment were done since for the rooms and lounges..Though I am staying in the JB town,off and on my family and I will just stay for one night for fun. We love the food spread of this hotel especially during Ramadan time..It is so good for JB standard so much so any function involving dinner ,many johorian will flock to attend it. The only problem is the limited parking spaces in the hotel especially during wedding seasons and weekends.
The room especially Tebrau room ...is really spacious and has all the necessary comfort and amenities.One of the thing i love was tap system which i photograph to compliment the management for making effort to ease one to decide the temperature of bath water..the rest has been commented especially location wise.
Enjoy your stay

Room Tip: The newer tebrau room is good..

Location of hotel - Very good as it was situated right beside holiday plaza and 5-10mins walk to KSL... Less than RM10 if you take a cab to Pelangi and City Square Mall.

Check in/Check out - Reached the hotel and 2pm, waited till 3pm before i got a room. Check out took only 5minutes....

Rooms - I've asked for a quiet room as i am a light sleeper. Room719 @ Tebrau Wing was allocated to me. There was a railway track in front of the room so i could hear/feel when train passed by + a soft honk when it pulls out..... Not so happening for me when it happens around 5am or so in the morning........

Room is spacious... They provide everything from toothbrush to washing powder but no cotton pad or cotton buds...... Air con is a bit loud......

For those who are traveling with kids, it is a must to check the sliding glass of the full length window... I seriously did not check mine and my 5yr old son came telling me that he can open the sliding glass. I thought he was joking.. I mean, shouldn't it be locked unless you unlock it ??? He's definitely not tall enough to unlock it. So i decided to check it out with him and there, he slide open the glass door. There's a sticker there which says - Do not open the window, open at your own risk. I wonder how many kids are able to read that and follow the instruction..... It is definitely our responsibility to ensure our kids does not open the window but why is it unlock in the first place ?

I cannot imagine if this happens to younger kids or kids who still doesn't have sense of danger. A holiday may lead to tragedy....... I'm thankful this happened when we were about to check out...... If it happens not long after i'm in the room, i may consider checking out immediately....

My experience with Mutiara was generally ok until this incident.......

Additional info - Internet access is chargeable at RM10 per hour or RM25 for whole day. Transportation to Premium Outlet, KSL and etc available but need 24hours booking in advance which i thought was ridiculous as KSL or Pelangi are just so near...

Paid RM245(including taxes) with internet for Weekend Package A (without breakfast) Deluxe King Room.

Room Tip: Rooms facing railway track are not suitable for light sleepers...

1st, I love its location, near to Holiday Plaza & KSL shopping complex. No need to worry of where to grab a bite.

The room, my comment is GOOD! Comfortable! everything just nice even though you may feel the carpet & wardrobe are ages. Bathroom is clean! A good start for refreshing!

Service no doubt is 5-class standard.

Breakfast is GOOD! Lotsa choices as well & not so congested even though with bunch of tourists sometimes.

Stayed there for a night. Seen pictures previously of mushroom sprouting from the door in tripadvisor, thus decided to play safe and went for their executive club room. Looks much better than in picture. Room is clean and spacious and the bathroom is decent too. Breakfast is pretty good. There is also a massage spa across the street which is convenient if one wishes to have alternatives to the hotel spa.

Room Tip: Choose only the club level

Stayed last Saturday for a night. Room size is good, pretty comfortable. Stayed in this hotel for a couple times over the past few years. They could improve the experience if the following areas are looked after:- 1) Pool - the sun lounger is really in bad shape with broken stripes, have not been changed for a long time. 2) The Shopping Atrium & Fountain area - Though the various shops at the far end of the hotel building does not have heavy human traffic, the Hotel should still take care of the cleanliness and have some lights. The Fountain is not maintained, the floors and the display windows have not be cleansed for ages. This affects the image of the hotel. 3) F&B - We had the hi-tea on Sunday, the replenishment is way too slow. We saw the staff replenishing the plates twice and the food was still not replenished. Even if we dine at 2+, the hi-tea is not over till 4pm! The chinese restaurant is their best outlet so far - food is good and quality is consistent.
