Much has been written about it but I beg to differ.

Firstly, it is in a place where there is dead zone, there is one coffee shop nearby in the day time, and mostly commercial shops. The lifeline it a 2/3 filled Aeon shopping mall.

Secondly, the wall cladding, thought to be hip is made from recycled old door/window frames. Ugly looking,

Thirdly, the hotel room, though well fitted out is made from steel furniture that is rusted - hip ? The water pressure on the third floor room is sad, slow flow. Flloor boards in the lobby are raw timber without coating - hip? And the two beds creak.

The highlight is the hotel lobby area with modern decor, decorations and a lovely restaurant.

Stay if you want, but be forewarned.

Decided to stay in this hotel after hearing good comments from friends. We booked the family suite. Check-in and out was quite fast. The hotel also updated our check-out request in their system. No hassle of having to remind them or getting calls to check out.
The room design is interesting. High ceiling and spacious but yet very unique design.
The location of the hotel is a short distance (around 15 min drive) from all the popular spots in Ipoh. But it is very near to AEON Station 18. Just 5 min walk from the hotel. So if you forget to bring anything, can easily walk to AEON to get it.
One improvement that the hotel needs to do is to mop the room's floor. The room floor is dirty and I saw the housekeeping staff just use those dust sweeper mop which is not clean enough. You can see your foot become black after walking around in the room. Need to use the bedroom slipper if you don't want to get your leg dirty, Hope the hotel will improve the cleanliness of the floor.

During entering the hotel, I write down my details (as required by the government) in the book provided at the hotel entrance. I did not scan the QR code as my phone was having problem to scan the code. During checked in the staff asked if I already scan the QR code. I told her I did not scan, instead I wrote down my details in the book at the entrance. She strictly told me that it is every guest is compulsory to scan the QR Code. I told her, I will asked my husband to scan once he arrives later as my phone could not detect QR Code. She keep on telling me that scanning is compulsory. I then questioned her, if everyone must scan, the how about my 2 kids who do not have any phone? She immediately replied with very sour face to me, it's okay then. After given the room key, I once again apologize to her anf tried to explain again that I have problem with my phone. She did not even look at me and keep showing her sour face. I even called my husband to remind him to scan the QR code when he entered the hotel later. As far as I concerned, we are given choices either to record our details in the book or to scan the QR Code when entering any premises. I never encounter any premise forcing us to scan the QR code considering not everyone has a phone with them, or maybe some people might have problem like me. You should brief your staff again on this policy.
We were mesmerized by the interior design of your hotel. However, during entering our room, I found out that your furniture were dusty. I found used cotton bud on the side table. The toilet floor is full of dirt. I do not think your cleaner ever scrub the floor, they might just wipe and dry it. There is blood stain on the cushion cover. I prohibit my kids to touch the cushion and just put them aside.You might consider to take out the cushion during this time if you do not want to change the cover daily. The room condition makes me wonder how do your hotel actually practice hygiene during this pandemic time while your staff at the check in counter was very strict on the qr code scanning.

First experience was staying in the one that was located in town and was already impressed so much so that I decided to give this other outlet a try. Great place to stay with convenience of Aeon and Tesco within walking distance. Didn't manage to try the Japanese restaurant but from the looks of many customers filling the restaurant, it must be good.

The location of this hotel is a bit away from town, so if you intend to do the touristy food thing, then make sure you drive or could always use Grab.

The only thing that wasn't too great was the the a/c placement in the room. no matter how much adjustments made, it just continues to blow directly and this causes some discomfort.

The facilities is very good. Reception called me to confirm my arrival as it was nearly midnight. Very near to AEON Station 18. Reception was also very nice and helpful. They have a washing machine and dryer that can be used for free.

Some minor improvement would make the place better. Add in more power point. The power point is limited and only 2 plug available to be used. The floor is quite oily. Maybe because of the floor conditioning.

The hotel is small but very beautifully decorated with unique facade.
Although it is not in the Ipoh city center, it is strategically located near a mall and shops. The room we stayed in is nicely done facing the street with very comfortable bed and fluffy pillows(not stingy with pillows and cushions!)
However, I am very dissappointed with the wifi connectivity, very2 slow and always losing the connectivity ( not up to 2023 standard). Major improvement is needed in this area.
Also, the hotel has very limited parking. The street public parking is available but it is definitely a hassle when guests need to pay for parking to MBI( need to install app for this purpose and deposit minimum rm10 in the e wallet!) Perhaps the hotel can work out an arrangement with MBI to reserve the parking lots for guests.
Staff is friendly.

design is modern but soundproofing is non existent. it is akin to living in a dorm/hostel room. the poster bed frame is an extremely ‘useless/brainless’ design especially when you have an inconsiderate next door guests that kept on banging the bed frame against the wall from 3pm until wee hours in the morning. no amount of complaining works because you know, there will always be inconsiderate and self entitled people everywhere. you can hear whatever your next door is talking about and be annoyed with their excessive high pitched chatters. the room is pretty dusty as it has a lot of non useful furniture with hard to clean design (corners and in between a) of which their house keeping couldn’t be bothered to clean. parking is public parking that you have to pay from 8am to 6pm - monday to saturday. no breakfast is provided despite the price due to covid but i don’t seem to experience this ‘problem’ on serving breakfast during covid. toiletries are ok- just that shower foam doesn’t lather well.

the only good things were the reception who tried his best to speak to next door to tone down (but to no avail) and the comfortable bed.

for the price we paid for, we would definitely NOT recommend a stay here. if not because this place is near to our intended itinerary, we would be better off at other same priced hotels in the city centre or could have paid more for better sound proofed room elsewhere.

The location is really far from the city center (at least 20-30 minutes by car during non-peak hours). Shower had no hot water (barely lukewarm) and poor pressure. The toilet flush was not working well in my first room and I had to request to change room. Overall, not impressed particularly with the location.
