Johor Bahru Hotels and Accommodation
(Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia)
Johor Bahru has everything from big, glitzy international chain hotels down to backpacker hostels. There is also a large variety of accommodation in between, and this is where the best deals can generally be had. Booking Johor Bahru hotels online is a safe bet for deals any time of the year.
Well-priced budget lodging options can be had right in the city centre. There is not the choice of backpacker hostels that you would typically find in Melaka or Penang, however.
Where to Stay
The Jalan Meldrum is the ideal spot to be based in Johor Bahru, as it is right down near the water, close to shops and attractions. There are many top-enders along this street and prices are significantly cheaper than comparable hotels over the water in Singapore
The Jalan Meldrum runs between the Jalan Wong Ah Fook and the Jalan Tun Abdul Razak, close to the City Square. Popular choices along here include the Gateway, the Hotel Dragon Inn, the Grand Paradise, the Hawaii and the Hong Kong hotels, all of which fall in the three- to four-star accommodation bracket.
One of the top hotels in Johor Bahru is the Hyatt Regency along the Jalan Sungai Chat, near to the Galeri Mawar and other top sights. Deals can be had here in the week when booking lodging online.
At the other end of the accommodation spectrum are the backpacker pads and typical basic Mala-roomed places. If you are on a tight budget and looking for the largest selection, then the most reliable option is to head away from the city centre, where the cheapest deals can be had.
