Grand BlueWave Hotel Johor Bahru
Ranked #29 of 109 Hotels in Johor Bahru
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Hotel is conveniently located, that if you're driving, you'll get to join the queue instantly to cross the causeway to Singapore after exiting the hotel access road.

Rooms are okay and spacious. For the little inconvenience of cross the causeway, it's worth staying here (at half the cost) than in Singapore itself.

My family stayed here for our trip to Universal Studio.

Room Tip: not much difference, rooms overlooking the straits would be more palatable though.

My family and i stayed at this hotel for work and family vacation. The first thing i like about this hotel is because it have a covered parking area and the lift to the lobby and my room is very near.

My check in went smoothly in 10 minutes because i have made a reservation through phone call. After check in went up to my room and i am surprise of how big it is and it have a fully functional kitchen, a microwave , a dining table with coffee making facilities because i just book the studio room only. Since we are a family of 3 , i call the housekeeping to send me and extra bed, after 30 min of waiting the extra bed arrive and it fits perfectly in the room without sacrificing space. The extra bed cost only RM 46.60 without breakfast. With breakfast you just add RM 20
It is cheap for a 5 star hotel.

There is internet line provide to you free.

The breakfast is quite good , there is bakery section, malaysian food section, salad section, yoghurt, egg station, porridge section and international section. 4 kind of juice and tea / coffee a luxury for only RM 20. And it is free for 2 if you are a guest in the hotel.

The hotel is near to Johor Bahru and the town it is only 15 min drive and it suited us well because we like to shop around and savour the food in johor.

It is a good hotel, the service is good and the staff is friendly. I will stay here again if i were to visit JB

Room Tip: Ask for the seaview room and a higher one so that you can have a nice view but if you like a quiter...

Normally, 5 stars hotels are "given" the stars by some relevant authorities, who, presumably, will check and review hotel's operations, service, facilities etc. before granting a 5 star status. Well, apparently, no nominal check has been done in this hotel.

So, I wonder:
1. How would you rate a hotel, where printers are unable to print out, as they are low on ink (and there is no spare cartridge)?
2. How would you rate a hotel, where dust is the primary cover on your bed?
3. How would you rate a hotel, where water is leaking in the toilet?
4. How would you rate a hotel, where staff is promising to help you and forget about you?
5. How would you rate a hotel, where towels are not changed when you just checked in?
6. How would you rate a hotel, where a computer in "business center" is unable to open .pdf document?
7. How would you rate a hotel, where

I mean, there are such hotels, but they certainly can't be called 5 starts.

Levering on it's good location, just across the Causeway from Singapore, the hotel management is relaxed, hoping that the location itself is the only good thing they can offer...
Yes, rooms are big and spacious, so, even more dust need to be wiped. Yes, there is Wi-Fi internet, but it's so slow, it equals to none.

I checked in the hotel on 26 dec 2011.supposedly for my wedding anniversary getaway....when I reached the hotel needs to wait another 20 mins for them to get my room ready after waiting,my hubby went up to receptionist and was informed we will be given another room,lower floor( imagine from 13th floor to 09th floor)..what a disappoinment. When we entered the room(executive suite sea view),it was huge amazing... That's a plus point.getting ready to take quick wash-up,we realize there is NO bath towels,face towels and even bath mat in front of our toilet door...called the housekeeping for the towels...such a hassle....we will not be coming to the same hotel ever again...
