Good place to rest with friends after exploring around. The hotel is located in a strategic place close enough to the heart of town and near enough to a beautiful lake. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Will definitely come again!

The room is very spacious clean tidy supplied with flat screen tv hotcold shower aircond and even a fan. Even free... More

We've been really impressed with this hotel since we got here a few days ago. Lovely rooms, comfortable beds, lovely friendly hosts, air conditioning... Not to mention clean and in a convenient location. Free wi-fi too. Highly recommended!

Spent 3 nights here and it was my first stay in the Furama although visited Tipping a few times before. It is a typical Chinese run budget hotel and at MR84(£14) pn good value for a mainland hotel. The rooms are a reasonable size with ensuite bathroom, hot shower, satellite TV,tea & coffee and free WiFi. It is situated very... More

This hotel group are right up there with the best as far as value for money is concerned. The hotel is really central for Bukit Bintang, lots of authentic Malaysian restaurants near by... More

The hotel is old, but clean and well maintained. Rooms are spacious and linens clean. The Taiping Lake is just a corner away. Walking distance from Taiping old town. There's parking spaces available and guarded at night. Soundproofing is below average so noisy neighbours might irritate your sleep at night. WiFi is good. Friendly helpful staff. Will definitely come here... More

Everything is good except limited hair dryer. (Warm reminder: if you need a hair dryer must bring along or request early.) The toilet no smell but still can see some stains on the wall. Friendly staff, good location.

Whenever we are in taiping we chose to stay here. The location is the best, just around the corner from the beautifull lake and plenty of eateries nearby. The rooms are simple, clean and very good for the price you pay. It would be even better if they replaced the electric shower. The staff behind reception is so friendly and... More

Worst Indian breakfast rooms are very small.but location is good lot of things are nearby. Restaurant staff are either not cooperative or not understand the requirement. As a Indian we feel homely in Singapore.
