Comfy, good location & value for money”

This is my 2nd time staying in this hotel for business trip and this time brought my wife along to experience this cozy hotel and she likes it. Location is not far from town, just beside Kluang country club with nice greenery settings and facing Gunung Lambak. Couldn't ask for more at this price.

historic hotel in Kluang”

This is still my place of choice to stay in Kluang. It has a nice historic feel (proudly boasting the oldest lift in the town) and well-equipped rooms. It's not central but it's very easy to take a Grab anywhere.

Mountain View will be best ”

Staff were courteous and friendly, no fridge or hair dryer in room but can be requested from front desk/ housekeeping. Housekeeper also very patient with our repeat request to change kettle. Room is clean and spacious. We got a view of the adjacent garden cafe, if you would like Mountain View, have to request in special request. The elevator sure is something ancient, but very interesting. The walls are pretty thin, can hear upstairs and hallway walking and talking. Not very good for light sleeper. WiFi is fastest at night, acceptable during the day. Location is good provided that you drive. Nothing is too far away. Overall a happy stay and will stay again when I visit Kluang.

Every month I will travel to Kluang and there is no other hotel can beat Merdeka Hotel. The Deluxe King Room is spacious and worth the money. It has cafe outside the building so dinner is taken care of. The staff are nice and check in and check out process is smooth. It is one of the heritage buildings in Kluang.
