High floor & windy. Great view of Johor Bahru (JB) city skyline, not to mention the northern part of S'pore! If you look at the main photo, you could see a part of northern S'pore too.
You are paying for convenience as it's close to amenities such as an express bus terminal, Internet cafes, F&B (including a 24hour cafe, KFC), football stadium, clinics, specialist hospital, minimarts, farmers' market & night market (weekends), public swimming pool, etc. A bit further away are hypermarts, KSL City (Johor state's biggest mall cum hotel cum resort). Within JB, the Royal Palace, a marina, the zoo, seafood centres, etc are some of the attractions.
There's a Legoland theme park just opened on September 2012, located on the west. Bus services there are available from the terminal. Johor Premium Outlets offering huge discounts on branded apparels like Gap, Adidas, etc is already open. Oh yeah, did I mention a Hello Kitty & Big Bob theme parks too? Located at Puteri Harbour.
Larkin Perdana is most convenient for travellers. If you're familiar with the area you don't even need a cab as it's only 9-15mins walk to the transport hub (Larkin Bus Terminal). This is where you can hop onto busses to virtually anywhere in Peninsular Malaysia, Southern Thailand & also to Singapore! So if you're coming from S'pore, you definitely have to alight here even before going to the other nearby sites listed in AirBnB.
Johor Bahru is informally considered as "Singapore's backyard" as many S'poreans come here to shop, dine, stay & do business. Just like Mexico is to the US. It's connected by a 1.2km long bridge, across the Johor Straits.
Also as the Southern Gateway to the Peninsula; in fact, it is the southernmost tip of Asia, exact location at Tanjung Piai, west of Johor Bahru. People come here for shopping, seafood & sex....in no particular order!
The room has a Queen-sized bed, cupboard, study table, wall fan, lighting, etc. This is a four-block apartment complex with 24-hour security, called Sri Impian Apartment.
