Just finished a month’s stay at JB Guesthouse in Johor Bahru and wanted to recommend it highly to other travellers. I initially stayed at Good.. Guesthouse but the location was terrible, my room was really small and I felt really lonely and isolated. After some time I moved to JB Guesthouse which was in a much better location in terms of very close to the Singapore customs entry, downtown JB and a 1 minute walk to lots of really cheap & delicious hawker food stalls, wifi cafes and shops. It was really a great find and very peaceful, convenient and private. The rooms are HUGE and most are self-contained but there is a public kitchen and a washing machine as well.
The owner Dave and his partner Joe were also the mostcaring and helpful people I have met and made my month’s stay even more pleasant.Personally, I think JB Guesthouse was heaps better than my stay in Singapore. It was far cheaper and much nicer than living in extremely crowded, cramped and expensive accomodation in Singapore. It really felt like Home Away From Home and would highly recommend it to anyone who is waiting for their visa to Singapore.
I will definetly consider staying at the guesthouse again next time I am in JB. It was truly a nice place to stay. Good people, safe neighborhood, and has a very homey feel. (Daniel Ford, USA 03-May to 03-June’2010)
Really nice place, you even get your own small kitchen. It is very clean and its like having your own apartment. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. It is a bit of a way off from the town center, but there are buses and taxis are pretty reasonable in Johor. Good place, I’d recommend it for anyone needing a clean and secure place to stay in Johor.
