Strategically located in the heart of Johor Bahru, Bliss Boutique Hotel is about 5 - 10 minutes drive to CIQ. Pelangi Mall is only 3-5 minutes walk away and it is also pretty near to KSL City Mall. Near Pelangi, there are also many eateries around the area which is within walking distance.
If you have drove in to Johor Bahru, you may have passed by or noticed the hotel which is uniquely painted from the outside.
Upon check-in, we were warmly welcomed by the staff at the counter. She informed us that Bliss is a non-smoking hotel and RM500 of cleaning charge will be applied if guest smoke in the room(s). .
Bliss Boutique Hotel has a total of 47 rooms consisting of 16 boutique rooms, 30 designer rooms and a luxury suite. To ensure we have a good night rest, we booked the Designer Family room for the night. It consist of 2 Queen Bed at a weekday rate of RM241 (nett) per night! In addition, the room rate is inclusive of complimentary breakfast according to the number of person allocated to the room type! It is a pretty good deal for us!
Let's zoom in to the room!
A point to note is Designer Family room does not have any window. Bliss Hotel used decals on the walls to make it more lively and funky. We got the Purple theme room with fish swimming in the purplish 'waters'. For a moment, I thought I was at J Hotel as they have similar design concepts and layout. For example, both hotels adopted very bold and vibrant colours.
The room is neat and clean. Air-condition works well and it comes with free WIFI. Toilet ad shower rooms are separated with sink located outside the wet area. Towels, disposable toothbrush and toothpaste are provided.
Again, I find it a little confine to shower in a small space with hooks that is located so near to the shower unit. There is not enough hooks to put my towel and clothing. Plus, being cautious when showering to avoid getting my clean clothing wet! Nevertheless, I like to keep the toilet area dry which is a plus point for me.
Room comes with mineral bottles, tea/coffee, safety box, mini fridge, hair dryer and an electric kettle. Floor is carpeted hence in-house slippers are provided. We have all that we needed for our short stay.
In terms of security, access card is required to enter the lift lobby and rooms. That helps to prevent non-hotel guest from going in and out of the hotel freely.
Lift lobby area is warmly lighted giving it a cozy feel. I like the artwork at the elevator area showing the historical metal gate of the building in the 1970! So smart of them to transform it into a modern looking artwork.
Computer station free for guests to use.
Comfortable seating in the lobby area.
Free juice at the lobby area for guests! That is a plus point for a boutique hotel!
The following morning, we headed down for our complimentary breakfast spread. While the dining area is not very big, it was clean and comfortable. There is also a television for guest to dine and catch a show.
Breakfast spread is reasonable. There is bee hoon, fried rice, spaghetti, roti prata with curry and other side dishes.
It was a pity that some food was a little cold when we went down for our breakfast at about 8:30am.
What I like most was the toast bread with butter garlic spread! I lost count on the number of toast I had (thanks to the spread) !
Another highlight was the half-boiled eggs! Toast with eggs is the perfect combination for me to start my day! We had a comfortable stay and would love to be back on our future staycations!
