Trip to JB - Our Stay at Holiday Villa Johor Bahru City Centre

It was our first trip after 18 years of friendship. A 2D1N shop-and-eat-till-we-drop trip to Johor Bahru. To minimise traveling time, we booked ourselves into Holiday Villa Johor Bahru Malaysia which is right next to one of JB mega mall KSL.

This is a quick review of the hotel we stayed, pardon the photos cause I was traveling ultra light and only had mobile phones with me.

Holiday Villa hotel is relatively new and the lobby is modern, clean and nice. The check-in wasn't as nice though.

We requested for connecting rooms and were almost not given the rooms even though this was confirmed upon verification via email. We had to insist that we were already assigned the rooms and after few checks before the guy behind the counter gave it to us. One of the rooms were not ready at check-in time and we had to wait till much later.

When 3 out of 4 ladies traveling are mums, you get this kind of loot after a few hours of shopping at KSL. No prize for guessing where we spent the most time shopping at, the Supermarket of cos! LOL!

Breakfast the next day looked like this....

The hotel is clean, comfy and near KSL, ideal for short family trip. I would consider going back there again if I plan to just shop at KSL over the weekend with my family.

Holiday Villa Johor Bahru City Centre is a 4-star trendy hotel strategically located along the main road of Jalan Dato' Sulaiman in Century Garden, the road leading to and from Tebrau Highway.  The hotel is 28.6 kilometers or 29 minutes drive from Senai International Airport and 4 kilometers or 9 minutes drive from the ferry jetty at Stulang Laut.
