Value for money”

2nd time staying in this hotel. As usual book family rooms and this hotel is truly a hidden gem! Hotel Jo provides an Extremely spacious family room compared to other hotels i stayed in. The reception was as usual polite, and checking in/out was a breeze. The hotel is clean, hallway to rooms smells good. Eventho the hotel is kinda old, it does not have a musky smell at all. The plus point of staying here would be the Strong Wifi! This would be my all time PREFERRED hotel to stay in should I stay over during weekends or for a short holiday with my family. Hopefully the hotel can come up with some loyalty or membership card for frequent traveller. Anyway, i have truly enjoyed my stay here.

Nice Stay”

Location : The hotel is centrally located in the heart of JB. It is within walking distances to the CS and JBCC and there are a lot of eateries surrounding the area. The taxi driver might not know the location, you can mention the former Tropical Inn. The hotel is located just the opposite of the Double Tree. It is easily reachable by cars and surely strategic. Lobby : The lobby is spacious in size and very clean too. The cleanliness of the area is simply spotless. The check in process is smooth and quick. I was briefed about car exiting the hotel and also the breakfast area. The lady attending me surely speaks super soft. Room : 1907, facing the city, the view is magnificent. I booked for Deluxe Queen but I got Deluxe triple. Thank you Jo Hotel for the upgrade. The beds are soft and very comfy. Amenities is complete, the fridge work, the TV works, the AC works and everything was perfect. The bathroom is big but the draining is super slow. Took 40 mins for the bath water to drain completely. Other than that, all okay. Breakfast : The breakfast is simple, fried rice, fried noodle and sausages. Simple yet tasty. I love it so much. Facility : I was told that can only use lift 3,4,5,6 to get to level 19. The 1 and 2 arent reaching there. Thats good. The lift is ancient yet so beautiful. The parking is so small. But that night, a chef from nearby restaurant guided us to the underground parking. You should make a signage about the underground parking because there are literally none. Satisfaction : 9.5 / 10.00. I will stay again for sure. Lovely refurbished.

Spacious Family Room”

Family room got partition between bedroom & living room with television. Lamp & air conditioner controller were unique like an old version movie attach on side table. Got all complete needs heater & chiller. Private parking were most awesome. Using ticket but FOC when you check out. Everything were fine. Only the small shower head were on top of bathtub. Since I'm usually not use it, the water will flow in the bath tub and the access to the shower head is quite narrow. A bit hard for my mom that have problem with her leg.

OLD but revamped Hotel”

The hotel was previously known as Tropical Inn Hotel, one of the longest standing building in JB. Great location, few minutes walk to Komtar and City Sq.. though alot of taxi driver was unaware about this hotel thinking that the hotel have shut down. Basic need for the room is provided, room are clean though the room can be looking a little tired. But comfortable stay. No in-room dining. There was an ongoing renovation throughout my stay there during the day. So we were woken up startled by drilling noise on saturday and sunday morning.
