Hotel in Johor Bahru

Hi there,

I was going to Johor next year January and i have no idea what hotel is the best to have bus shuttle from JB - Singapore… I was about to book tune hotel JB… Because I saw that they do have bus shuttle from the hotel to Singapore Sentosa island… Do any1 here give me some opinion or is there some1 who had stay in Tune hotel Johor b4??

We plan to travel down from JB - SG in this trip…

Thanksss

Not sure if it’s still the same now but you can stay in Tune Hotel and then pay RM 24 for round trip to SG Sentosa Island through the smaller Kastam link.

It operates like every hour in the morning starting from probably 7 or 8 am and then night time latest at around 10.

Or else you can go through Sri Putri (Round trip RM 15) but it will go through big Kastam.

If you go by public bus or Sri Putri then you need to go through the big Kastam with lots of people and sometimes the bus won’t wait for you. The one at Tune Hotels wait until everyone come only they depart.

Wish you 888.

You can check other traveler’s opinion and review., which is what I always do when I want to book a hotel. To me, I would consider the below issues whenever I want to book a hotel…

  1. Easy accessible to all places through public transport, eg Bus, LRT, Train, Taxi
  2. Hotel with hot shower, Wifi, comfortable bed etc, not necessary with Breakfast, but if they provide why not?
  3. The best price but with the best location, which might be a bit difficult but still I managed to find one or two
  4. Location, location and location still…meaning nearby to 7-Eleven, Cafe, Restaurant, Shopping Mall…I mean after you went out for whole day of traveling, you do want to come back to hotel and still close to everything you need, but not have to take taxi or bus to other place and get it…
  5. Unless you are traveling to a private island or you are looking for luxury 5 star resorts then all the above are not applicable

Just my piece of advices, enjoy your trip :smiley:

there is a cheaper way of going to singapore if you stay in the town center. for me, tune hotel is quite far away from the town center, u need to take a cab to get to the jb town. another recommendation is to take bus from Kotaray II Terminal next to Persada Johor Convention Center. There is a direct bus from JB to Sentosa at cheaper rate. Enter singapore you pay in RM and back to JB you pay in SGD. Pls refer to below link for reference.

You can check for reviews at lonelypanet if you want!~ As if you are going to Singapore, you may book your bus tickets online from [url=http://www.easibook.com]easibook.com to avoid any inconvenience!

Kooks is right. Tune hotel is kinda far from JB town. A cab ride will cost you RM20. I dropby Tune JB last month when I was there just to check out the location. There is nothing nearby.

If you are not planning to visit Legoland then I suggest to try find a hotel near JB CIQ complex. It’s much more convenient. Food outlets, shopping mall and JB CIQ are all within walking distance and you can hop on the many JB-Singapore buses that pass through JB CIQ. If you have the time, you can even walk across the causeway and grab one of the many local Singapore bus to town or to the nearest MRT station.

:smiley:

o.O thanks guys for helping me much~~

I would stay away from Zon for sure…Grand Bluewave isn’t bad…I did a 3 days 2 night stop on my Singapore trip to check it out because I have never been to Johor.

Best to stay nearby City Square if you want to trael to jb. Tune is at danga bay too far already. take cab need at least rm15 to kastam. Better save the cab fee then stay in a better hotel…
