When we always go to Johor Bahru to relax. My hubby and I always stay in this hotel. Asked for some suprise greeting for my hubbys birthday. And they did. I always recommend this hotel to my friends. It must be atleast 2 to 3 star instead of 1. Thank you very much Hotel Ciq.

It's a 10-minutes of walking from JB Sentral. Quite cheap. Less than RM100 per night. I stayed there for two nights. Free parking for the guests. Those who would like to visit Singapore without staying can use this hotel.
