The design of Container Hotel Ipoh is inspired by the golden era of Ipoh, known historically for tin-mining activities in the 1920s to 1930s. The design draws the inspiration from industrial retro style, transforming the heritage building into compact modernised capsules by infusing smart design in the use of space, and functional elements to create a unique lodging experience for the adventurers as they explore the charm of the city. To foster the arts in the community, we transformed the interior into a creative space for aspiring artists to display and share their works of art. For that, we strive to make your stay an artful and memorable experience imbued with Ipoh modern and classic charm; a dose of cultural fusion which feeds the travel bugs’ curiosity.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. It's conveniently located in the heart of the old town, and within walking distance to the new town. Some of the most instagrammable alleys and famous food stalls are a stone's throw away (literally). It's very clean, comfortable, and value for money.

It is clean, nice and comfortable place to stay, the bed is soft. Washroom is separate , male and female, and basic amenities were there. Many cafe are around the corner, however most of them closed after evening. Overall, it is worth for the price!
