8 Days Boutique Hotel in Taman Impian Emas, Johor Bahru
I stayed a night at 8 Days Boutique Hotel in Taman Impian Emas during one of my 2 days 1 night food trails in Johor.
This is the facade of the 2 storey, 30+ rooms boutique hotel. Free parking is available at the front and the hotel security guard at the front entrance keep an eye on the guests' cars round the clock.
The hotel reception, right at the entrance. The reception is manned 24/7.
The hotel lobby is clean, bright and spacious with comfortable plush seats. A public access computer with internet connection is available at the lobby.
The hotel has two levels. Access to the second floor rooms is via lift and security key card. This is the only 2 storey hotel in Johor Bahru equipped with lift and key card access for better security.
The corridor at the second level. Brightly lit and with over head security CCTV cameras. The floor is carpeted to keep footstep noise down.
I stayed a night at a Platinum Jacuzzi with King Size Jacuzzi room (RM188 nett per room night promo rate).
The room is spacious with ample room to move about. It had none of the claustrophobic feel of many boutique hotels.
If I were brought into the room blindfolded, I wouldn't have guessed that this was a shop lot, boutique hotel.
This is the view of the bed from the room entrance.
The King size King Koil brand mattress was firm and comfortable. The pillows and linen were clean and free of smells. I slept well on it. I also like that cushioned head board.
All the essential amenities like LCD television, electric kettle, mini fridge and basic furniture are provided.
Free wifi is provided. I wrote and published a blog post from this room without a hitch during my stay.
Basic complimentary mineral water, instant coffee and tea bags. The room is equipped with universal power sockets, which are very convenient.
The mini fridge is empty, so we can stock it up with our own drinks and food.
There is a wardrobe and a safe box with digital lock.
There is a King size jacuzzi bathtub in the bath room.
I love the rain shower head - it's so refreshing to wash under a cascade of water.
Clean bath towels.
The wash basin and mirror. Basic toiletries like toothbrush, toothpaste, etc are provided.
I am glad 8 Days Boutique Hotel provided two pairs of rubber slippers for guests, as I dislike walking barefoot in hotel rooms.
