JS Hotel (Tebrau City)

Lately, we have been hotel hopping in Johor Bahru, "hunting" for various boutique hotels at various locations. Since Hubby does not wish to drive out too far in the night, we figured it would be wise to find a resting stop that is near to a shopping mall (preferably within walking distance).

JS Hotel - a new boutique hotel which had it's grand opening in August 2015 was our latest finding. Strategically located next to Aeon Desa Tebrau and Tesco Hypermart, we were able to walk to both marts conveniently, which provide shopping, dining, leisure and entertainment.

There are a couple of parking lots in front of JS Hotel and parking is free. Most importantly, we are relieved to see a security guard keeping a look out for the cars in the night.

Lobby area

Stairways up to Level 2 where our room is located. You may wish to know that there is no lift within JS Hotel as it only occupies two levels. This might pose some inconvenience for those travelling with elderly or with heavy luggage. It would be welcoming if there are alternatives to make improvements in this area in the future.

Although Aeon is only 5 minutes walk away, JS Hotel has a mini snack counter in case we feel hungry in the night. :)

Upon check-in, we were only given 1 access card, 1 remote control for Air-condition and 1 remote control for television. I am guessing that the hotel is still very new and hence they wanted to ensure the remote controls are in good condition (by not placing them in the room).

As it is the holiday peak period, nearing Christmas, we were not able to book a bigger room. Hence, we settled for Deluxe King (RM128) plus an additional bed (RM30). Access to room is via key card and it is spacious and clean.

Extra bedding placed in our room upon arrival. 

There is a step leading to the toilet and everyone (particularly the younger children) has to be cautious to prevent incidents leading to fall. Otherwise, toilet and shower room is bright, clean and spacious. Towels, disposable toothpaste and toothbrush are provided too.

Resting zone in the room

Being located near to AEON and TESCO is an attraction to stay with JS Hotel. Pricing is affordable and we had a good rest. In addition, JS Hotel also offer bigger rooms for family - Superior Family (1 King bed + 1 Super Single bed), Deluxe Queen Double (2 Queen beds) and Deluxe Family Suite Tatami (2 King beds) under RM200. We would love to be back to check out their Family rooms next time.

Any hotel with free wifi is a good hotel! LOL! Their boutique hotel and our local boutique hotel very different hor. Most Singaporeans may call them budget instead of boutique hotel? Good for impromptu trips for adults.

So far most of the boutique hotel we have stayed are very nice and comfortable and at a cheaper rate too!

Phoebe said...

Exactly! Same sentiments with my children! All they care is if there is FREE WIFI! Secondly then they look at the beds or TV. -____- I definitely vote to name them as boutique hotel instead of budget. :)

Phoebe said...

It would be nice to look out for these hotels especially those near the malls as it is more affordable. :)

We were just in JB last 2 weekends, stayed at Renaissance and drove 15 minutes to shop at AEON Tebrau. This looks like a good alternative to stay at, for an overnight staycation.
