~ Sponsored Review - 8 Days Boutique Hotel (Permas Jaya) ~

June 2014 - We embarked on another food trail in Johor Bahru during the June holiday vacation. This time, we decided to explore the areas outside of KSL and venture into Permas Jaya.

Our family spent 2 nights at 8 Days Boutique Hotel (Permas Jaya) which is about 15 minutes drive after crossing the checkpoint. 

8 Days Boutique Hotel offers affordable and comfortable stay for guests. Currently, they have 3 branches conveniently located within Johor Bahru, namely - Permas Jaya, Mount Austin and Impian Emas. It's not too hard to spot the hotel especially in the night. Just keep a look out for the iconic number 8 brightly lighted on the building's exterior. 

What's around 8 Days?
AEON Permas Jaya is just beside 8 Days Boutique Hotel to satisfy our shopping and marketing needs, especially in the nights when we do not want to drive out. Senibong Village (Malay Seafood Village) is 5 minutes drive away from the hotel and there are more dining options along the rows of shop lots that we can walk to. (More details will be covered in our Food Trail)

What's within 8 Days?
Reception area and conference room which can host up to 70 guests. Bistro Cafe, where meals, snacks and drinks are served daily. There are seating available indoor and outdoor.

There are ample parking lots right in front of the hotel. During the night, there will be a security guard to keep a watch of the cars. Permas Jaya police station is also located along the same shop row as 8 Days Hotel. That gave us an extra sense of security to leave our car at the parking lot overnight.

8 Days in a decent boutique hotel which provides complimentary Wifi. Electronic key security card system is adopted to access the lift and rooms. Check out their room rates online. Alternatively, it is also available at the reception counter. 

I spoke to the friendly staff at the reception and understand that the branch at Permas Jaya has opened for 3 years. The difference between Deluxe and Superior room is the availability of fridge and window view for the prior option. Do check with the hotel prior to your booking. 

*Photos of each room type were taken from my mobile phone without any photo editing. 

I was pretty impressed with the various room types available within 8 Days. Particularly the ones with steam bath or jacuzzi attached in the bathroom. There is a total of 48 rooms of different sizes over the 3 storey hotel. 

Some rooms are smaller with limited walking space but each room is neat and clean. Towels, toothbrush and toothpaste are provided in the bathrooms. 

Premier 4 in 1 comes with 2 Queen beds and it is the perfect room for our family particularly since we have 2 older children. Denver & Gladys love the beds because it is on the platform (very Japanese style). For the first time, I do not have to worry about them jumping on the beds. ^_^

Although the walking space is limited, it was nicely compensated with the spacious platform area. We played, snacked and rest on the platform. Even sleeping on the raised floor was so comfortable, thanks to the coolness from the air-condition room.

Toilet is spacious and clean. Safe and slippers were provided. 

Current promotional rate for Premier Tatami room is priced at RM155 (approximtely SGD 62) which is pretty affordable. If guests wish to travel down to Legoland or Puteri Habour Family Theme Park, they can check with the front desk to check on the transportation services available. I also learned that there is night market (Pasar malam) just outside the hotel on Sundays evening. We would love to be back to explore in the future!
