Definitely a late post but again, better late than never…
We spent 3 days (2 nights) at KSL Residences at Johor Bahru.
First thing you have to know is that it has a separate lobby from the hotel.
If you took the bus from JB Sentral, I suggest that you look for a hotel staff and ask for their assistance.
The room will NOT get serviced everyday! You will have to fix your own bed and clear your own rubbish.
Second, rooms doesn’t have WiFi, it’s only available at the lobby.
Positives, compared to the hotel, you get amenities to cook, a regular sized fridge and a living room.
Sponge to clean your dishes is not provided.
Since service is not available, you will need to look for a room cleaner to have your towels changed.
Room isn’t carpeted.
Room doesn’t have a phone, you’ll need to use your mobile phone to contact the front desk.
KSL Residences has its own pool, gym and sauna.
The pool is awesome, you’ll definitely love it for your laps! But they do not provide pool towels.
Upon check-in, they will provide a “towel card” which you’ll use to get 2 towels from the hotel side. You’ll need to return the towel before check-out to get your card back.
Gym has less facilities compared to the hotel… BUT you can access the hotel’s gym if needed…
If you’re staying as a family (or with friends), KSL Residences makes so much sense.
The rooms are bigger, facilities to cook, and you get amenities of the “residences” (awesome pool) and the “hotel” (awesome gym + dino park).
But if you’re 3 (or less) and have no plans to cook. KSL Hotel is more than enough.
