Johor Bahru is a popular destination for Singaporeans these days and who can blame them if they decide to take advantage of the favourable exchange rate? To sweeten the deal, there’s even the Legoland theme park and Johor Premium Outlets shopping centre. You’ll definitely spend more than a day there and this is where budget accommodation comes in. The less you spend on a hotel, the more you have for that new coat or tie, but that doesn’t mean that you have to sleep in the slums.
Tune Hotel Danga Bay
Located 20 minutes away from Legoland and Johor Premium Outlets, this hotel is one for families or for shopaholics. There are even daily shuttle transfers to Universal Studios Singapore and Resorts World Sentosa but that’s more for the Malaysian tourists rather than Singaporeans. Rooms start as low as S$30/night and considering you won’t spend much time in the hotel anyway, that’s a steal.
Address: Retail 2, Jalan Skudai, 81200 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
Hanya Satu Hotel
Hanya Satu Hotel is located in the heart of Johor Bahru. This means that you waste little time traveling and that you’ll have more time to shop and eat instead. Even though the hotel is only 2 stars, the amenities and services provided are not shabby at all. The usual creature comforts of air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, a television and attached bathroom are provided.
Address: 29 Jalan Meldrum, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
The Vintage Hotel
The Vintage Hotel has an excellent location. It only takes 10-15 minutes to drive to Legoland, Hello Kitty Land Town, Johor Premium Outlets and AEON Bukit Indah Shopping Centre. It even has its own in-house café and a 24-hour coffeeshop is located nearby, if you forget to eat while you were busy shopping throughout the day.
Address: 26 Jalan Nusaria ¾, Gelang Patah, 81550 Gelang Patah, Johor, Malaysia
Hotel Sentral Johor Bahru
Hotel Sentral Johor Bahru is located near City Square mall and a 10-minute’s drive to Danga City Mall. The convenient location means that you spend less time traveling after you’ve cleared the customs and immigrations checkpoint. It is also situated near the Stulang Laut Duty Free Zone, which offers ferry services to Batam and Tanjung Pinang. You might just be tempted to stay an additional night.
Address: Jalan Tenteram, Tajung Puteri, 80300 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
Eight Days Boutique Hotel
Eight Days Hotel offers free private parking, so fret not if you plan to drive to Johor Bahru rather than taking the bus or train. Room rates start from S$37, comparable to the many budget hotels in the area. Jusco is a stone’s throw away from the hotel and the many restaurants nearby will ensure that you won’t go hungry after a long day shopping.
Address: 27 Blok A, Permas Mall, No. 3, Jalan Permas Utara, Taman Permas Jaya, 81750 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
