We have 6 places to stay in and around Johor Bahru.
You’re more likely to meet business travellers than tourists in JB and the majority of accommodation choices cater to that crowd. Very few backpacker or budget options are in the downtown area (and some of those are “by the hour”). On weekends, it’s wise to book ahead as rooms fill with shoppers and foodies from Singapore or families visiting Legoland. We’ve concentrated our picks on the area nearest the causeway where, as well as being convenient for onward travel, is where most sights and eateries are found. Free WiFi is included in all options listed although it may not be as speedy as across the strait. Most hotels require a cash key-deposit when you check in, usually around 50 ringgit. Walk-in rates quoted are generally higher than discounts on booking sites, so shop around for deals.
