Last July we decided to have an overnight stay at Johor Bahru in Malaysia. Since we are staying at Singapore now, it only took us less than an hour to get there but an hour to pass through the immigration.
I had a bad experience going to Johor Bahru last time when I went to KLCC with my friend and wasn’t given the chance to explore the city so I thought that this would be it.
I was happy to see restaurants not available in Singapore. LOL. Yeah! Basically we just went “malling” for a while and then decided to spend the whole time at the hotel because I am so tired and wanted to rest.
We stayed at Amansari Hotel City Centre located at Jalan Wong Ah Fook, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. My companion were the ones who looked and booked for our hotel because if I will be doing it, it will take forever. Haha.
And since we’ll be staying for a night only, I promised not to be choosy. 🙂
Things I Like:
- Near JB City Square mall
- Short walk from Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) and JB Sentral terminal
- Clean room and bathroom
- Cable TV and free wifi
Things I Don’t Like:
- You will need to request for wifi password every 24 hours for each of your gadgets
- Limited facilities with no swimming pool
- Add more food selection on your breakfast buffet.
I’ll give Amansari Hotel 4 out of 5 stars. Will I be coming back? Yes, if ever I’ll go back to Johor Bahru. Will I recommend this place? Yes but for a short stay only.

By the way an overnight stay starts at 129 MYR.
