Located at 260, Jalan Dato Sulaiman, Taman Abad, 80250 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

Google Maps make it look a block away, but if you check out Street View, you actually only need to cross the street from KSL.

We have been regular customers of KSL, but on our last 2 visits, the hotel was starting to look and feel old.

So now, after Mutiara and KSL, Holiday Villa will be the third hotel for our JB Staycations!

Lobby is ok with ample seats.

It does not have Starbucks, but they won’t charge you for using the washroom.

There are shops and restos on the Ground and 1st level… But you are better off crossing the street for bak kut teh or just have a meal at KSL.

My wife and I were surprised by the size of the room…

King size bed.

TV ports were easily accessible.

However, channel selection will need improvement.

Closet has a safe, 2 pairs of room slippers, no robe

Fridge was available, but don’t expect it to make ice. (it was more of like a wine chiller)

Our room did not have a tub

But shower area’s size was again bigger than usual

Toiletries included a comb, tooth brush, soap and shampoo

Don’t expect anything from the free internet.

It was bad and it was useless at 10pm!

Main amenities were at the top 2 levels of the hotel

Pool, (dry) Sauna and Gym were on the 25th floor

And the 26th floor had the sky bar

Breakfast buffet was available on the 9th floor, Fern Pine Cafe.

Don’t expect too much, but it was more than enough.

Thanks to the aging KSL Hotel, I can highly recommend Holiday Villa.

If you have small kids who want to play around, then you’re better off with KSL, you get the dino land and you don’t have to cross the street.

During our short stay at Holiday Villa, we found the place more relaxing and more modern.

I honestly can’t wait for the next trip…
