Johor Bahru City Square Hotels

Border towns always have an energy about them, and Johor Bahru’s no different. This burgeoning modern metropolis has come some way from its days as a scruffy little sister to Singapore. Connected to Singapore via a 1038 metre-long causeway, the thriving Johor Bahru City Centre’s catching up in the style stakes with new malls, developments, and skyscrapers popping up all over. With an array of cheap hotels and good value high-end accommodation too, it makes a great budget alternative to pricier Singapore.

Things to see

It might be piling up high-rises in a flurry of development, but Johor Bahru’s scattered with an array of historic sites. Start your visit with a wander around elegant Istana Bukit Serene, the rather grand palace of the Sultan of Johor. With particularly wide-reaching views across the sparkling water to Singapore, it’s a serene spot for a stroll. The gardens here are immaculately landscaped, casting out a green glow among the urban thrum. If you’re an avid golfer, don’t miss the chance to practice your swing on the lush undulating fairways of the nearby Royal Johor Country Club. A Johor mainstay since the 1960s, this plush 18-hole course has long been a recreational hotspot for the city’s elite. Just east of the city centre, another regal gem is the Istana Pasir Pelangi, a royal palace belonging to the Crown Prince of Johor. Peek in through the gates and you’ll notice glorious gardens along the sweeping driveway.

Hotels in Johor Bahru City Square

Hotels in Johor Bahru City Centre come with a smaller price tag than those in neighbouring Singapore. Take full advantage of the discount rates and stay in a sleek 4 or 5-star hotel where you’ll be treated to marble-clad lobbies, grand suites with thick Egyptian cotton bedding, and top-notch service. If you’re budget doesn’t stretch to these luxuries, you can choose from mid-range hotels brimming with modern amenities. Great for families and business travellers alike, you won’t be short of mod-cons like WiFi, meeting rooms, and on-site fitness suites. Budget travellers can choose from smaller 2-star inns and guesthouses.

Where to stay

The area around the central main road of Jalan Tun Abdul Razak’s awash with malls, eateries, and markets. Wide boulevards are lined with historic buildings and food sellers serving up tasty treats from their snack stands. Further south, plenty of hotels are clustered close to the long causeway that reaches out across the water to Singapore. If you’re using Johor Bahru as a base for your stay and plan to spend plenty of time in Singapore itself, this is a convenient spot. To the west of the city centre, quieter neighbourhoods are scattered with palatial houses, including some royal residences.

How to get to Johor Bahru City Square

Senai International Airport’s a 23-minute drive from Johor Bahru. You can take a cab from the airport in to the city or arrange a transfer via your hotel. If you’re travelling from Singapore, buses run between Singapore’s Queen Street terminal and Johor Bahru’s Larkin Bus Station in the north of the city centre. If you want to travel by taxi to Singapore, registered taxis depart from Plaza Seni Taxi Terminal close to the causeway. To get a taxi to travel around town, you will need to take a red one, while blue taxis travel outside of town.
