Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru Review

H & I decide to go for a last minute short getaway just across the causeway at Johor Bahru. Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru came up in our search with high review and ratings. Despite a little more expensive compares to others, we decided to give it a try. Read our 2 Day 1 Night Johor Bahru Itinerary here 

Located at Jalan Ngee Heng, the hotel is located near to the checkpoint and 10 minutes of walk to city square mall. Still, considering that other hotel such as Holiday Villa, KSL and Amari Hotel have a mall beside them, the location of the Hilton isn’t really ideal.

Upon arrival, we were greeted with a huge lobby. Checking in the hotel was fuss-free. Plus, the receptionist is really friendly. We got our room within minutes! & yes, their signature cookies are dope! I finished both!  

We booked the deluxe room without breakfast since there are many options in JB. We were lucky to be allocated to the high floor! The room size is big and the bed was comfortable. Although the hotel was open in 2014, the room still looks pretty clean. Design of the room is simple but not out-dated.

The bathroom is big and comes with a rain shower. Although a little disappointed that it didn't come with the bathtub. I mean wouldn’t it be nice to soak your feet in hot water after spending a whole day out? Anyway, the bath amenities are provided by Crabtree & Evelyn and we love the scent of it! Definitely a plus point!


Most of the facilities such as swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and gym are located on the 7th floor of the hotel. Although there isn’t a 50m lap pool for one to swim, the pool looks beautiful. I spent my morning by the poolside, chilling with a book in my hand. The gym is very well equipped too!

There is a 10 RM carpark fee if you are parking your car in the hotel

Overall, we love our stay in Doubletree by Hilton JB. We love our stay and will definitely be back for another stay soon! The service is good and the room is comfortable. Although the location isn’t ideal, we managed to take Grab to get around.
