Grand World Hotel (Permas Jaya)

We have been hotel-hopping around Permas Jaya area and identified a few hotels which are affordable and suit our family needs. Although boutique hotels may not be equipped with facilities that bigger hotels are able to offer, their rooms are big and pricing is competitive.

Grand World Hotel is strategically located along Jalan Permas 10 where you can locate many eateries nearby. KSL mall and Woodlands Checkpoint is about 15 to 20 minutes drive away. While the hotel does not provide free parking for its guests, they will assist to put parking coupons on your vehicle to their best ability. Guests will then make payment for the coupons later. 

Grand World Hotel has a big lobby area where you can rest and sit comfortably to read the morning papers before you start your day.

Upon check-in, I requested for another card and the hotel staff gladly issued us a Power Card to enable our room to remain cooling when we return. A point to note is a step at the lift area that we find it hazardous and a little redundant. We have to be mindful whenever we exit the lift (especially with our luggage) and this also seems a little more challenging for the elderly.  

We booked a Family Suit at RM188.70 (weekend rates). The modern contemporary room comes with 2 Queen beds, flat screen TV, coffee/tea making facilities and en-suite bathroom. Room is spacious with ample walking space plus free wifi is available within the building.

I love the full length window view which is not very common for most boutique hotels. We can have a good view of our vehicle from the comfort of our room, adding extra security and assurance.

Bathroom is clean and it is equipped with complete showering facilities. Free toothbrush, body soap and shampoo.

It was a pleasant stay at Grand World Hotel. The staff are courteous and helpful when we experience problem with the door. Another affordable boutique hotel to consider on your next trip to Johor Bahru.
