Austin Park Hotel @ Taman Mount Austin [JB]

More restaurants, cafe and entertainment are setting their grounds in Taman Mount Austin and it is no surprise to see lots of activities and more crowd within the district till late night. Driving through or finding a car park lot on weekend nights is also a challenge as many drove down to chill, relax or catch up with friends here after work.

Hence, we are seeing more homestay and hotels are coming up in the area. You be surprised that during peak period, rooms get taken up very fast even though Taman Mount Austin is not located in the city center.

Austin Park Hotel has been in operation for sometime now and recently we checked-in into the hotel as our usual preferred accommodation was FULLY BOOKED!

Austin Park Hotel is only 5 minutes walk to Austin Heights Water & Adventure Park and if you are driving,you can park your vehicle at the basement carpark. For hotel guests, you get discounted parking rates. For our 2D1N stay, we paid RM2.

Hotel lobby is wide and spacious

Dining area. There are many eateries in the nearby vicinity that food would be the bottom of the list to worry about

Lift lobby to the hotel rooms. Security is lacking in this aspect as non-hotel guests can also take the lift up to the hotel rooms. Would be nice if the hotel can consider implementing card scan system in the lift to tighten the access.

We booked the Premier Room via Agoda at about SGD74. That does not include the RM10 tourism tax. Austin Park also required their guest to pay a deposit of RM200 which will be returned upon check-out if they find no defects/missing items in the room.

What I like about the room is the HUGE space. At 40sqm with wooden flooring, it can fit 2 King Beds comfortably with ample of walking space between the beds and the TV console.

Toilet/Shower room is exceptionally spacious as well! Our family can all fit in at one time without feeling the lack of walking space. 

Basic toilet amenities are provided. The only question is we were only provided with 2 sets of toothbrush set and towels when it is a family room fit for 4 person. 

It is always nice to have a mini fridge in the room to keep your chilled drinks. 

The plus points for Austin Park Hotel is the big rooms and amenities provided. We feel comfortable and well rested. The minus points is the WIFI connection is not very strong and rooms for improvement to tighten the security to the rooms.

Also, we were a little disappointed that while the check-in time is 2pm, our room is still not ready by 3pm when we arrived.

Overall still a pleasant stay with room for improvements.
