Great customer service provided during check in process. Located at the center of some great spots including spa, massage, food outlets, etc, within walking distance. We were driving a pretty long car and trying to park our car on the 3rd floor, but the ramp was really narrow for some big MPV such as Alphard/Vellfire type of cars. The Security...

Pros: Very near to the main eateries, eg. Ipoh beansprout chicken, Restoron Tuck Kee Zichar etc all within walking distance. Cons: Hotel looks abit old. We had a room right at the corner, wifi was weak. Too bad, we were only there for a night, we will be back to explore Ipoh again!

Stayed here a couple of times over the last couple of years after it was fully refurbished. It was nice. However, gone terribly downhill. It is below average and I would pay a little bit more and get a better hotel. It has gone downhill quite quickly since refurbishment. Superior rooms are small and extremely basic. Deluxe rooms are bigger...

I loved almost everything except some minor details which are not really an issue like their wi-fi or the noise from some neighbouring businesses. It's also just a few kilometers from Tambun so not finding a hotel near the Lost World is really not an issue. I particularly hated their basement parking. I am a very good driver, yet I...

Stayed this hotel during Chinese New Year period from 26/1-28/1 . I was deciding between Newer Weil Hotel n this hotel . I decided to booked the the latter due to location. Food is easily available around this hotel. Room given was 615 and check in was fast. Looks like the room had went thru a soft refurbishment and was...

Has upgraded since the last we stayed....the creaky floorings & horrible bathrooms are now refurbished & clean. You could still hear people talking whilst they are outside the common corridor... may compromise your good rest. For a brief stop here, is o.k. while enroute to Penang & Hatyai. The breakfast in the cafe are about the same, but the coffee...

I checked in on December 26, 2016 with my family - a bit late in the evening. After checking in, we went out for some meals. When we came back and ready to take the showers, there were no towel. I called the house-keeping dept., but no one answering. I called the front desk personnel, and the clerk told me...

Stayed one night for a wedding. Exterior and lobby appear to be dated but the room was surprisingly updated. Service was good, breakfast was acceptable. Cleanliness of the room was horrible. Cups were stained, beneath the bed was dusty and had a used water bottle. Was sufficient for the one night. Don't think we'll be returning though.

“The A/C in the room is always switched off when you leave the room. You need to hit the on-off switch in the A/C panel.”
  • Room is okay!
  • Stained towels. See the brownish spots.
  • The building in Ipoh. Nothing grand!
