A relative newcomer on the Johor hotels scene is the Tune hotel Group who have been building hotels all over Malaysia including the Tune Hotel Johor that is located on Jalan Skudai Mukim Bandar.
Tune Hotels have been described as the budget hotel equivalent of Air Asia or Ryanair(Europe) who are both renowned as no frills low cost airlines.
Tune Hotels offer huge discounts on rooms if you book months in advance (it is possible to secure a room for less than RM10 per night!) and each room comes with a 5 star bed and power shower.
However, it must be noted that if you want to watch TV, use a hairdryer or use the air conditioning this will cost you extra.
The rooms are quite small and compact and as most people only use hotels for sleeping in you can save a lot of money by overlooking the pampered luxury of the more upmarket Johor hotel chains.
Tallest Hotel In Johor Bahru
With 25 floors the accolade for the tallest hotel building in Johor Bahru goes to the Grand Paragon Hotel.
However, this title will not last long as Johor Bahru is undergoing a major transformation with dozens of buildings including hotels that will soon eclipse the Grand Paragon.

Just east of Johor Bahru is the Desaru Golden Beach Hotel Resort that is set amongst lush tropical greenery and an idyllic beach front.

The Desaru Golden Beach Hotel not only offers all the usual beach activities to be expected such as jet skiing and windsurfing but also jungle trekking, 4x4 off-road driving and mountain biking can all be enjoyed close by.
