Yangtze Hotel (Permas Jaya)

It was a short trip into Johor Bahru and we decided to pick another hotel to stay in Permas Jaya since the area has many eateries in the vicinity.

Yangtze Hotel (formerly known as The Great Wall Hotel) offers a variety of rooms (Superior, Deluxe, Executive, Family Suites) which comes with free WIFI. For those who are driving in, you may like to know that there is no security guard on duty. Instead, Yangtze has a covered car porch (within the hotel) which can park up to a maximum of 12 cars. If you wish to leave your car within the car porch (particularly overnight), you need to leave your car keys at the counter in case the staff needs to move your car to allow the movement of other vehicles.

We booked a Family room for our stay which comes with 2 Queen beds. Room is relatively clean and spacious. It is equipped with basic facilities including a mini fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. It also comes with 2 extra pillows.

The family room has one attached bathroom which comes with toothbrushes (exclude toothpaste), towels, soap and shower gel.

With the recent implementation of a 6% GST, we paid RM178.10 (Weekend rate - RM168 + 6%GST) for the family room. Cheaper rates for weekday.

We had a pleasant stay at Yangtze as it fulfills the following basic requirements.

1) Air-condition is cooling
2) Clean bedding and toilets
3) Variety of TV channels available
4) Strong Wifi signal with multiple connections
5) Strong water jets from the shower
6) Safety!
