Man reception are not friendly. other is ok
May be can add refrigerator in the room. That would be better. Breakfast ok with the price but can be improved.
Comfortable hotel, good services, easy to find food and activity near hotel
This hotel is clean, near shopping mall, and has friendly staffs.
Reasonable hotel. Near to town. Easy to find food.
Good but food service slow. Good for price
Clean and good service! Well done
Worth for the money within walking distance to 2 shopping complex. Except you cannot charge to your room when eating at hotel restaurant.
Room is clean and comfortable. Location is good. Near shopping mall and bus central. But WiFi is quite difficult because we must input the password every time if we went out from room.
in the middle of city. very near to shopping mall (city square, komtar and galleria kotaraya). Room ok. Breakfast ok but need to add more choices. Service ok.

Best location, clean and best value in town
I was really impressed with the value of this hotel. In this price range (RM88+) the other options are run-down, old hotels. My room was clean and had a modern TV and was really exceptional for the price. About the breakfast - please don't expect too much at this price! Most hotels will not provide breakfast in this price range. The good part about it is that you can get fried eggs to order and there is a toaster, but the rest is pretty bad. OK the downsides. I was going to book on Expedia but I saw the sign on the front "early bird special RM88", which was exactly the same rate as Expedia. So, I thought I would be nice and save them the commission so I walked in and asked for the RM88 rate. They told me it was sold out of the day, but the manager ended up begrudgingly let me have it at RM88. Lesson here is to book ahead on an online agency to ensure you get the best rate. The other thing to note is that they require a RM100 deposit in CASH - even though they took my payment by credit card! Thank goodness I had the cash on hand. The credit card swipe usually is the deposit these days! Also, there are no amenities in the bathroom - no surprises at this price, so make sure you bring some shampoo and a toothbrush. Finally, they only provide one keycard because there system uses pre-programmed cards and they put the number on the card - not good if you happen to lose it.

Love it!
Nice! Me and my 9th old son love this hotel. The room is quiet small, but clean and tidy. Its enough for us as place to rest after the whole day activity roaming around the city. This hotel also very close to JB Center, there're more than 2 big shopping mall near the area. And i mean really close. Just infont of the hotel! This big malls are connecting to each other, and that's made us lost the direction for several times. Fiuuhhh.. But the most thing that i love about Baguss City is the price that soo cheap but the value that we get its not cheapy at all. The service is nice and friendly. If you want to efficienty the budget and time, i think this is the best hotel you should choose. We'll come back here for sure.

Horrible hotel and very dirty
On 30 April 2017, i've checked in to this hotel which used to be the AmanSari City Centre (a nice 3 star hotel - read my previous review). I was suprised that the hotel name has been changed and the front desk officer even told me the management also has been changed and they have got nothing to do with Amansari anymore. They have sour face and not so friendly in assisting customer for registration. The minute i entered the room i noticed that not only name & management had changed but the standard also has been lowered and the quality of the room is worse than a budget hotel. They claimed themselves a 3 stars hotel but i only saw the certification at the front desk shown it was mean for AmanSari, not Baguss and yet they displayed it. The next morning my breakfast experience was the most horrible experience ever as the coffee house was very filthy everywhere with quality of food worse that roadside stall. They even place the dining table in front of the elevator. I was really upset and the price of the accomodation were very costly and yet the quality i've got were lousy. Need not say more. U guys just scroll through all the photos here and may want to compare with my previous post on AmanSari. I will not come back to this hotel eventhough it's very convenient to Komtar JBCC.

The pro is the location for shoppers
Overall the location is considered good as it is just opposite JBCC. But in terms of looking for local food, you will have to walk a distance to Jalan Wong Ah Fook. Imagine you brought kids and you will have to walk. Family room is big enough for us. Breakfast choices are very limited and everyday menu are the same.

Very centrally located budget hotel
Just checked in to this hotel with the unique name a short while ago and this Baguss City will be the base for our JB-SG business trip from today until the weekend. And once again, from my first impressions here, these are some pros and cons of this centrally-located hotel. Pros: - Nothing can beat the Baguss City Hotel's location, hence the name - it's smack in the JB Central District and right opposite the popular JBCC and City Square malls. - Rooms may be kinda small, since this building used to be an office block, but they must have been renovated recently - comfortable and tastefully done up. - Speaking of the room, the rates are a super-affordable MYR105.80, something we can't get in neighboring hotels (Amari, DoubleTree, Puteri Pacific, Grand Bluewave) and with very fast + reliable free wireless Internet! - Being a former office tower, ample multi-level parking is available over five floors, making it easy for us who drove down from KL to JB. Cons: - While the room has been renovated nicely, too bad the lobby is still quite dated but I suspect it will be upgraded very soon. - There is not much in terms of leisure facilities here (no pool or gym, for instance), even if these are readily available in the two malls opposite as well as the new Zenith complex (Amari Hotel) next door. - Windows are full of rain-spots which means the building is in urgent need of an external clean-up soon. For the price and wonderful location, this is a recommended hotel for a couple of nights in JB and one that we will return to, for further visits here!
