The room is very raw and chic. Comes with a little pantry, stove, fridge, plates and utensils. Very lovely patios and balcony. Clean and decent. There is no carpark if you're driving, you need to buy scratch coupons and park by the road side. Since the accommodation is above one of the busiest coffee shops and shop lots, expect noise...

I tried out the Annexe - the "new" section of Sekeping Kong Heng - which is above the pre-war shophouses (beside the old furniture shop which is now Plan B restaurant). It's so charming. The room is literally in the attic - yet it was so cool and pleasant - you can see the roof tiles and the rafters as... More

Fusion of new and old by creative people whom helped put Ipoh old town on the map and buzz. The retail area around hotel is also classy and at least less tacky in their merchandise than across the Street in panglima aka Concubine lane. Sekeping Hotel is just next to Kong Heng which food standards have dropped over the years(... More

What a gem of hotel! Never had expected that an old colonial shop house can be transformed to this amazing modern yet maintaining its old world charm. Location is fantastic as it just within the quarters of Ipoh's two most famous kopitiams. A fairly new tourist destination is Concubine Lane which is just a stone's throw away. Perfect for families... More

This place has very unique decoration. But..... It so hard to find. Have to walk around the place because don't know where is the entrance. The price we had is about RM200+ per night. So, it's not a budget place to stay. The good thing is this place is quite close with other attraction place. Overall I still satisfy with... More

Booked a girls' trip here and took one of their rooms for 6 people. We had a good time but let me tell you it is really not for everyone - it is very rustic for lack of a better word. One of my friend's described it as looking like her "grandfather's attic". The bathroom doors are glass with curtains... More

There comes a point in a man's life when he has to admit to himself that he's not cool or hipster. And I reached it at Sekeping Kong Heng. It was stressful finding the reception, if you can call the hole in the wall that. Literally walked in circles before a helpful woman at the convenience store led us to... More

The 8 of us stayed here for 1 night, we booked the Old Block room and Kong Heng Annex room. Overall, we had a good hipster experience staying here for a short trip. Pros: 1.

“If one prefers an attic, ask for the Annexe. If one must have an ensuite bathroom, then the Annexe is not for you”
  • Attic walls with original paint from pre-war days. Crisp fine linen upon wooden pallets. I like.

“All the rooms look very similar so I don't think it matters. There are family rooms which are very open so don't forget the mosquito repellant. There isn't much noise so go for what you think suits your needs.”
