Crystal Crown Hotel
Ranked #74 of 109 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed 8 December 2010

the hotel is old and not renovated for a long time, the facilities and furniture are old.
only 1 of the 3 lifts operates at night and on the night of my stay it is one which is faulty. I had to put up with it and the staff told me that the manager was aware of the problem!

Reviewed 25 November 2010

Stayed at the Crystal Crown hotel from 24 to 26th Nov 2010. The room is quite spacious and the hotel gave us a triple bed instead of a twin bed room. Booked by email and I must say they responded fast. They were also very accomodating e.g. deducting RM20 per night when we told them we do not want breakfast - many hotels would not make any discount for that. They also allowed us to check out later at 1.30 pm. In fact I must applaud the receptionist - she personally delivered a roll of toilet paper when I could not get it from House keeping which closed at 11pm. We ordered room service - would definitely recommend the grilled snapper and the prawn salad but not the laksa and gado gado which were too spicy. We have chosen the hotel this time round for its proximity to a well known hawker centre - taman seri tebrau 大马花园 as well as the Fizzio massage centre just opposite the hawker centre. Heard that the Japanese restaurant in the hotel is good but did not have a chance to try it.

This place is not too bad for the price. It is an old-style business hotel that has big rooms and that has seen better days, but reasonably clean. Staff reasonably helpful. Breakfast was awful. They charge RM30 per day for wifi access. Swimming pool is a white elephant - it is there but nobody bothers about it. "Health centre" usage is chargable extra and is definitely not "family freindy."

I was there with a work colleague for 2 nights while attending a meeting.
As it was F1 weekend in Singapore most hotels were either full or with inflated rates of 50% above normal. This hotel had vacancies and as far as I know did not jack up their rates.
Although next to a major road (Jalan Tebrau) it was not noisy.
Bedroom was comfortable but room and bathroom furnishings have seen better days.
For those without a car, the city centre was some distance away...approx RM15 away by cab.
24hr indian muslim restaurants nearby with food that was quite average.
Shortage of car park lots and the parking ramps seriously needs to be widened for wider than average vehicles.
Front desk personnel was new and did not answer our question for few mins before calling a more experienced staff member.
It's hard to beat their room price but I'd still rather stay elsewhere.
