Hotels Near Legoland Malaysia Johor Baru

By popular demand, here are our experiences of hotels near Legoland Malaysia Johor Bahru. We had a really good time at Legoland Malaysia and at the Legoland Water Park, right next door. You will certainly need an absolute minimum of two full days in the parks here, a 3 night hotel stay.  You could easily stay longer in the Legoland parks or visit Hello Kitty World nearby. The number of hotels near Legoland Malaysia is fairly limited and the parks are a long way from main Johor Baru, but lets take a look at the options. Malaysia really doesn’t have the cheaper hotels you’ll find in the rest of South East Asia, but down here, we found some real bargains. Luxury hotels and apartments are appearing near Legoland too and of course you have the option of the themed Legoland hotel

Legoland Malaysia is the best global Legoland we’ve visited so far. But where to stay? It’s a good way from Johor Bahru

 

Budget Hotel Nearby, Warm Blanket Hotel Quad Room

We searched the internet for budget hotels near Legoland Malaysia and this place popped up so we booked it. We were all happy with Warm Blanket Hostel and its quad room was perfect for a family. The price is as great as the location. Check here for current Warm Blanket Hostel prices and availability.

Cost per night:

The rate on the door was 65 MYR per night for a quad  ( this rack rate is often higher than the Agoda rate) The current price is around $15 US per night through Agoda for a quad room. That’s a fantastic deal!

Number of beds:

The quad rooms have 4 beds, double bunk beds, 2 up, 2 down, seen in the picture above.

Warm Blanket hostel near Legoland Malaysia
Washing and shower facilities were ultra clean at Warm Blanket and we loved the modern decor.

What we got for our money:

Air con and good WiFi in room. Very clean, shared shower, toilet and sink facilities. Excellent security. Comfortable beds with clean sheets and one blanket. No top sheet ( this seems standard in Malaysia). No window and a very small room, but we expected this and it wasn’t a problem. The funky lighting and decoration stopped the room feeling boxy and here, you’ll be in the parks all day, who needs a big room?

Location:

The Legoland Malaysia park and the new Legoland Water Park ( it is next to the main park) are a long way out of Johor Baru and, thankfully, so was this hotel. There was no local bus to the park from the hotel, but reception called us a metered taxi, it cost around 12 MYR. The park will do the same for your return trip. The hotel is above a row of shops and restaurants. There are plenty of Malaysian food options, a laundry and a shop selling beer, downstairs. Warm Blanket is a short taxi ride (MYR 7) from a huge shopping mall and Tesco. We would highly recommend staying near the park rather than in Johor Bahru itself.

Note: I always point out a few negatives. Obviously, if they’d been a big deal we wouldn’t have stayed, I just find a few for the benefit of others who may be sensitive.

Negatives:

We struggled a bit with only having one power point in the room as we have three computers to charge, but it wasn’t the end of the world. You could, occasionally hear other guests in the corridors but again, it wasn’t an issue. The management asked if we found our stay noisy, absolutely not, everything was fine. There may be some waiting for showers at peak time, but we never had any problems, this is a very small place and the ratio of showers: guests is reasonable. There were a few stray dogs on the road, keep your kids close.

Our Verdict:

We really liked this place, it totally suited our needs for a busy few days at the Legoland parks. Our quad room was right outside the showers, toilets and sinks, which was really handy with the kids. Reception staff were helpful with calling cabs for us and one of them even gave us a lift to the shopping mall in his own car. Much appreciated! We’ve heard of similar kindness from other friends who have stayed.

We loved the clever decoration and little touches, turning the steps to the top bunk into storage shelves was genius and very handy. The kids thought the little spinning things on the taps were fabulous ( in picture) I guess they’re a water saving device.

We actually slept really well because there wasn’t a window. We’re normally up at dawn but we were sleeping ’till 8am here. It is quite a bus trek from the main bus stop in Johor Baru to the hotel, but instructions are there on the Warm Blanket hotel’s website. Taxi drivers may not be sure where this place is, print off the map if you can. Don’t use the taxis at the rank outside the mall, they are a total rip off, get mall security to find a metered cab for you instead. The correct fare from mall to Warm Blanket is 7 MYR. We stayed for 4 nights and would absolutely stay again.

I'm always a big fan of affordable accommodation options as I travel with my daily budget below $25, so thanks for the great info. I hope to make it to Malaysia soon ;-).

Wow, $25/day per person would be a dream come true, we aim for $40 to $50 per day for all 4 of us. Failing miserably at the moment! But it's fun trying, I like a challenge :)

That's great Heidi, it's my mission in life to be useful and terribly obsessive about facts and figures. I think I spelled Johor Bahru wrong though!
