Frequent travelers to Bangkok will be no stranger to the Amari hotel brand.
Recently there’s a new Amari in Johor Bahru. I was there for a 1-night stay with my wife and her family during Christmas.
Other than the fact that it’s new and there’s rain shower, the major plus point to me is the location.
It’s located in the heart of JB city. Komtar JBCC and City Square Shopping Mall is just right across the road.
Even if you don’t drive, you can reach Amari just by walking from CIQ.
Plus all the hipster cafe that are springing out around Jalan Trus and Jalan Wong Ah Fook area.
There is a movie room and pool table for guest on the lobby level. It was showing Home Alone.
The beds are alright. Softer would be better. We booked the deluxe room as the smallest configuration are fully taken.
The TV channels are okay. There’s HBO at the very least.
Welcome gift from Amari.
The hotel is attached to Zenith mall. Most of the shops are still under renovation. But for convenience, there’s a 7-11.
After deducting credit card promotion and some Agoda points, we paid slight above SGD100 for 1 room per night.
