Almost hidden under JB expressway, the four-storey cream and white colonial-style Grand Jade Hotel, sits not so grandly amid condos and construction, a five-minute walk from the downtown area.

This boutique hotel offers simple but charming individually styled Peranakan-influenced rooms. Smart, compact interiors are more understated and stylish than you would expect from the somewhat glitzy lobby and are decked out with either a coloured feature wall with batik, lattice-work details or wall-sized historical photographs. Some rooms are dark and windowless, others are bright but with limited outlook and some offer a seaview. Those with windows are double-glazed to keep the causeway traffic sounds to a minimum.

Comfy beds come with twin, double or family options and amenities include air-con, flatscreen TVs with cable channels and tea-making facilities. Spic and span ensuite hot-water bathrooms are equipped with rain-showers and some add a bathtub. Pattered tiles enhance the historic Peranakan mood although in some it seems more 1970s kitchen-style.

If you don’t bag a room with a view, catch the lift to the fourth-floor glassed-in rooftop breakfast area where you can enjoy a simple included breakfast and gaze across the Johor Strait to Singapore.

Although centrally located, the area around Grand Jade is somewhat deserted late at night, so we’d recommend catching a taxi back in the evenings. Friendly staff suggested discounts are offered for a longer stay if you contact the hotel directly.

Although on the small side, Grand Jade offers some of the most comfortable rooms in town at this price-point. For a tad more space (in select rooms) neighbouring Insta Hotel is a good choice (and car-parking for those that need it), and if all you need is no-frills but a decent bed and shower, and want to be as close to the malls as possible, Baguss Hotel may fit the bill.
