I’m writing this review using the hotel wifi from my Japanese tatami style room. It is very near sutera mall south car park. The lobby is nicely design and the room is pretty spacious. Yes I agree with the review on the bathroom flooding but it is only for a short stay so I

Dear liliant, Thank you for taking time off even in the midst of your holiday to write us a review. Also thank you for noting the nice design of our lobby and finding the room spacious. We are about 5 minutes walk to Sutera Mall, a popular local mall crowded during weekends. We are also surrounded by over 80 F&B outlets of all sorts, all within 15 minutes radius of walking. In short, spoiled for choices. We encourage you to keep your eyes on the lookout for values during off peak season, you will be pleasantly surprised at the rates. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

I think it's only fair that a balanced review is given for any establishment that is being reviewed, so here are the PROS - front desk is friendly - room has good coffee making facilities - bed comfortable (except for one extremely hard pillow) with clean sheets - free to air

Dear Julie, Thank you for your lengthy and detailed review with pros and cons plus pictures. We regret we have not met your expectations this time round. With regards to the points that you have highlighted, we shall re-visit the room that you have stayed (based on your pictures) and perform a deep cleaning on the toilet walls and bed board. We trust it will be a cleaner room for future occupants. We shall also review our deep clean program with the housekeepers for the rest of the hotel. The hotel provides Four FREE parking lots to guests on a first come first serve basis as you rightly pointed out. As in many cities in the world, parking is not free nor cheap. Parking rate is relatively affordable here at MYR0.60 per hour. We can only advise timing rounds of the parking attendant for your reference, but it is still the responsibility of car owners to ensure adequate parking hours coverage. We understand you had a bad encounter with another driver outside the hotel that spoiled your day. Whilst we always try with the best of intention to our best ability to assist guests in providing value services beyond even what higher-rated hotels provide, we do not expect our staff to work beyond their sphere of influence. Our bell boys will aid guest during parking, shelter you during rainy days, carry your luggage to your room, greet you as you enter or leave, open the doors for you and more. I trust they are hard-working and dedicated as many other reviewers and guests can attest to. We wish you all the best in your future visits to JB. (hopefully with more atypical JB drivers).

I have been J hotel for quite a lot of times, the place is cozy, mostly the room is playing with design. I have been live in 'TATA-MI' design, 'HANGING' design. Bur, it might some noise on Morning. Inside the room is clean, what I care is the toilet, it also clean! Surprise

Dear chinkahyee Thank you for your kind review and certainly for your long term patronage of our property. We are glad you found our place cozy and full of design. Cleanliness of rooms and toilets are not to be taken granted for -- a dedicated and hardworking team of housekeepers are making it so. Hope to see you soon, for we are sure, Paradigm Mall will take more than a few trips to complete.

This chic and modern hotel was chanced upon as we were strolling to Sutera Mall. The lobby is clean and cosy.  We were greeted very warmly by the reception staff who was very helpful and very forthcoming with information about the hotel.  Naturally, we decided to stay there for

Dear MKMKMK246, Thank you for your wonderful review. Turning your skepticism into satisfaction has indeed made our day. We have shared your praise to our team; it has certainly provided much encouragements for our work here. We shall continue to keep up our rooms and service to exceptional levels.

Unplanned stay but we gotten checked in fast & quick. Good enough for transient stay and no for longer nights as the place is surrounded by night spots - rowdy & annoying. Convenient for food hunts & shopping mall nearby.

Dear CHRISLL8 Thank you for spotting us on random and staying. We are located in this small bustling township of Sutera Utama, where locals come to eat and play. In the day, there are offices and the usual expected eateries. By night, the scene transforms into a happening hangouts for drinking, popular with the younger crowds. So you are quite right in your observations of night spots and food hunts. You were also right to point out the Sutera Mall 5 minutes away from us. There is another bigger and newer one called the Paradigm Mall, which is 15 minutes drive away. Kind regards

Do you have covered car parking?
Theres plenty of parking lots available, but most of them are open. So far I've only seen covered parking lots at sutera mall. Those lots are usually reserved for people who are dining at the restaurant.

From J hotel to the Little Big Club takes about 30 minutes drive. I wouldn't say it is very close nor that far. Traders Hotel is the nearest one -- it is a four star hotel. Otherwise hotels in Bukit Indah area will be nearer by 15 minutes. From Causeway to J hotel takes about 25 minutes.
