Check in takes so long. The room was warm. Old furniture and the room not as expectation. The worse part is blackout since 5.00am in the morning until I check out around 10pm. Really disapointed.

Booking for two nights. But others facility not available. Travel agent didn’t put notice about the pool and other facilities closed. Frustrated. Just stay for one night. Nothing to do at the hotel. Breakfast only 2 choices menu. So sad. Other big hotel can do much better with the price I paid.

Family vacation
Tired looking rooms and facilities. Unwelcomed stay. Hotel reception staff needs more customer service training. The hotel reception was cold and informed us perfunctorily that early check-in would cost an additional fee. The staff was rubbing his dry, cracking lips while sharing with me on room options. The experience felt purely transactional. When I requested for an early checkout due to the tightened border restrictions by Singapore, the reception did not even bother to acknowledge the reason behind my early check-out. Rather, they looked more concerned that I was going to leave without paying for my 2nd night. After they realised that I had pre-paid my rooms, the male receptionist just told "Yup, all settled" before going back to his work. That's all I got for checking out of Thistle. Trust me, you are better off at Renaissance, Hilton JB, Capri by Fraser JB, Suasana Suites JB or Amari JB - had a wonderful stay at these locations.
