Lonely Planet review
Overlooking the Straits of Johor, the Thistle is one of the poshest options this side of the Causeway. What puts it in a class above the rest are marble bathrooms, a lovely curving swimming pool and airy, light ambience. The location, near Danga Bay, is a little out of the way.
Thistle is about 4km from the town centre, just off the main road, Jln Lingkaran Dalam.
Our independent authors have visited Thistle Johor Bahru and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Johor Bahru.
