Legoland Malaysia Hotel is definitely our family's new favorite spot for holiday... Awesome!!! We love everything in the hotel😻 Since we enter the hotel lobby, we have been impressed by the unique design interior in every spot. Kids are never bored in this hotel, legos (small & giant) & games (video game area & qbox game) for kids are everywhere. The room is spacious, clean, and enchanting! Musics also everywhere, including in the elevator that made my sons dancing whenever entering the elevator. It feels like we were entering a new world when staying at Legoland hotel 😻 The different themes for the room make us want go back to Legoland Hotel Johor in the near future to experience other rooms..

Breakfast selection is limited and horrible. Seriously the worst hotel i've been in. Do not come to this place. Citrus hotel which is just across and cheaper is much much much better.
