Amerin Hotel Johor Bahru: A quiet, urban escapade within a hectic city!

[编辑 Editor 吕大人   英译 Translator 刘大人   摄影 Photographer 黄大人]


For far too long, the hotel scene in Johor Bahru remains true to the tried and norm, from the recent proliferation of international 4 and 5-star hotels dedicated to serving trappings of luxury for the affluent visitor and business travellers, to a myriad host of pragmatic and convenient array of value-for-money budget hotels all over the city. With accommodation options aplenty, the spotlight is now on boutique hotels instead, considered smaller sized hotels with uniquely designed interiors as well as deliver refreshing living concepts that will set the new establishment apart with its dynamic pull factor and innovative ideas.

As an upcoming trendy boutique hotel located in the heart of Taman Perling, just opposite Perling Mall off Pasir Gudang highway, Amerin Hotel features cosy accommodation and a wealth of services and amenities that cater to all kinds of travellers. Set about 10km from the excitement of the Johor Bahru, this 4-star establishment commands an excellent location and provides access to the city’s biggest attractions (LEGOLAND, Hello Kitty Town, Thomas The Train Town, Puteri Harbour), shopping malls (Johor Premium Outlets, Paradigm Mall) and Senai International Airport. With its convenient location, Amerin Hotel offers easy access to JB’s must-see destinations, but yet away from the loud noise and crowd of the city.

Choose from four room categories, each catered to diverse groups of people; all 176 rooms offer free wifi, minibars, and flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, coffee makers and free bottled water among the other amenities available to guests. Along with multiple restaurants, including our favourite Gloria Jean’s Coffee, this smoke-free hotel offers Free WiFi in public areas, complimentary self-parking, as well as our favourite go-to 7-Eleven convenient store on site.

With an urban, functional-chic design and comforting space with full height windows that allow natural light for that homely atmosphere, we can appreciate the amount of detail put into this boutique hotel to make it comforting and aesthetically pleasing for us. Prices are also reasonable here too, and with an ideal location and facilities to match, Amerin Hotel hits the spot for us in many ways.


Amerin Suite

Arguably the most extensive suite with two rooms and two ensuite bathrooms, Amerin Suite is designed with the family staycation in mind, with complimentary breakfast for four (max). The spacious living hall with a cosy sofa set is conducive to chill over movies from the cable channels on a giant 48″ Samsung TV screen, while the pantry kitchen is also well-equipped with a fridge, washing machine and dryer. For some reason, the full-length wall mirror made our day no matter which angle we sneak a look LOL!


The master bedroom with their signature King size mattress makes the ideal escape for loving couples, while the kids will enjoy their own time with two separate beds next door. Both rooms come fitted with 40″ Samsung TV, and we could even soak up the liquid comforts in the considerable bathtub while updating our online buddies via the FREE wifi, before heading out for some social family fun and “find dining” within and around the hotel.

Executive Gold Suite & Executive Silver Suite

Featuring a balcony facing a garden and outdoor sitting offering an unrivalled panoramic view of the JB city skyline, the Executive Gold Suite on Level 6 comes equipped with self-service laundry washing machine, a large King Size bed and a huge bathtub that appeal to the occasional business travellers in us.

While the Executive Gold Suite focuses on superior comfort and amenities for the business travellers, the Executive Silver Suite is designed with the elderly and those with special needs in mind. Honestly speaking, a non-disabled guest is unlikely to notice the lowered heights for most fitted furniture, anti-slip wooden flooring and grab bars installed in the bathroom and toilet, but these are some of the accessibility features for guests using wheelchairs that we have learned to appreciate after recovering from an earlier freak incident.

Executive Deluxe King &
Executive Deluxe Twin

Even the standard Executive Deluxe King & Executive Deluxe Twin rooms has set the benchmark really high for others to emulate, and are indeed well-appointed to ensure a comfortable stay for all even on a budget, inclusive of complimentary breakfast for two, while only missing out on the bathtub but still, this is a great deal and value!

Sky Pool & Sky Glass Walk

Until recently, a sensation like “sky walking” could only be experienced in dreams or outside of Johor Bahru, but now on Amerin Hotel, dreams and reality will meld into one with the first of its kind Sky Glass Walk!

Located on Level 15 and boasting a 270º panoramic view of Skudai and Taman Perling neighbourhood, the Sky Glass Walk has been extremely popular with the hipsters, the young at heart and couples looking for a unique marriage proposal venue to seal the deal (with 100% success rate), so come pit your hearts and guts out for an unforgettable wine and dine experience that might leave you (literally) breathless! Been there, done it!

    🕙 7.00am to 7.00pm

Health enthusiasts also have a place to call home at the hotel’s Sky Gym & Wellness Center on Level 15, which comes complete with the latest exercise equipment with a spa that offers pure relaxation in the sky for the lucky few, where professional treatments and pampering by trained personnel is taken to a whole new level.

Business Centre

With three seminar rooms (Bumi, Matahari and Bintang) and two meeting rooms with audio-visual facilities, corporate meetings are made easy for companies and business travellers on the go. What we also like is the boardroom for meetings with full meal arrangements and set up by professional in-house event planners to ensure a hassle-free experience for 15 to 80 pax, all we have to worry about is pitching our idea and sealing the deal!

Gloria Jean’s Coffee

Upon our arrival at Amerin Hotel, we stepped into the spacious lobby which had high glass windows that allowed lots of natural sunlight to filter in, while the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and pastries from Gloria Jean’s Coffee wafted over from next door. Definitely, one of the more homely hideouts to snuggle up in on rainy days, there’s nothing like sipping on a steaming cup of cappuccino and digging into delicious nosh (read: Club Sandwiches and Waffles) while basking in the pitter-patter sounds of the rain and soaking in the subdued atmosphere of the inclement weather. We can’t buy happiness but we can buy good coffee, and that’s pretty close, so let’s chillax over a cuppa together!

PS: Hotel guests enjoy 20% off the total bill, which also includes the delivery right to our room, and we can even enjoy four different breakfast sets for only RM8.99 every Fridays to Sundays (from 8.00am to 11.00am) even when we are not staying!

Sky View Cafe (Breakfast)

Step inside the refreshed Sky View Cafe on Level 13A and be surrounded by a convivial, relaxed atmosphere and a spread sumptuous as a hotel breakfast should be. Sinking our teeth into a wide variety of local and international cuisines and feast at ease knowing that we can create our ideal breakfast from the ingredients that were nicely laid out.

Overall, the breakfast buffet here is a simple affair, but simplicity done well, as we kept returning to the porridge and kway teow soup station in particular for refills. Shiok!

    🕙 6.30am to 10.00pm daily


Sky View Cafe (Dinner)

The same venue for breakfast can also be the go-to place if you are looking for great food and views, as we embrace the stunning panoramas of Taman Perling and beyond while taking our pick from their ala-carte menu boasting a variety of local and Western food.

Upon placing our order, the chefs prepare a succession of delicious dishes promptly, ranging from Sautéed Mushroom with butter and herbs, Mariana Seafood Pasta in classic tomato sauce, Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb served with carrot puree, mint sauce and jus reduction, Yong Chow Fried Rice and Salmon Fish Head Curry braised in thick and spicy curried gravy that has kept our senses tingling while still keeping our wallet healthy. Our unanimous vote went to the latter, a scintillating stew of curry cooked with vegetables and of course, the whole head of a fish that we ordered extra plain rice just to soak up the fragrant curry.

With the recent cooler spell upon us again, the shabu-shabu set is yet another great option to “chill” over a steamy hot pot, or go for an even greater buffet spread at RM99 nett (RM79 nett for senior citizens above aged 60, RM59 for children aged between 5-12) for dinner every Fridays and Saturdays just to experience dining in the sky!

    🕙 6.30am to 10.00pm daily


Chill Out Skybar

Whether you’re looking to chill with drinks at noon or long into the night, the Chill Out Skybar has you (and us) covered as well. What better way to end the day by simply sip on their signature Fruit Punch, Shirley Temple or Blue Lime and watch the city pass while listening to chill and upbeat music?

    🕙 Poolside Bar 12.00 noon to 12.00 midnight


All work and no play indeed make anyone dull (let alone Jack), so cut yourself some slack and imagine the world of good an escapade right in our backyard would do for us, if we would look no further than JB for your next staycation destination. Elegantly designed and all beautifully curated for a sleek stay, we look forward to enjoying even greater value by signing up for the Amerin Privilege Card (APC) (including a supplementary member for our spouse) for only RM588 nett and receive over RM1,500 in value for complimentary room stays and F&B vouchers for our use throughout the year – talk about being spoilt for choice!

In a nutshell, Amerin Hotel is our preferred place to be if you’re looking for tranquillity and accessibility. It’s far and away from being the most beautiful boutique hotel, but it’s possibly the more worthwhile.
