Lonely Planet review
Overlooking the Straits of Johor, the hotel is the poshest city option this side of the Causeway. It's in a class above the rest with marble bathrooms, a lovely curving swimming pool and airy, light ambiance, but the location near Danga Bay is a little out of the way. Thistle is located 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.
