The room was bigger than expected but furniture was old and bed was kinda broken so end part of the bed was slanted. We requested for a mattress to make up for the broken bed, but staff was not accommodating enough to extend complimentary to make up for the shortfall. Instead, we had to change room, which was very inconvenient... More

Stay here for 1 week due to business around here. The cleaning service of the room is done only when asked. Expected to return to a clean and organized room but after 1 whole day, the room still messy. Do not asked for them to clean the room every nook and crook, but at least pick up the garbage, tidy...

Simple and clean, with free wifi. Off road parking. My only negative comment is the pillows are horrible very thick foam, so I couldn't use mine. Liquid soap provided for the shower. TV and aircon. Hot shower.

Checked-in to the deluxe room, with no expectation. Surprisingly, I was impressed with the room's tidiness and the toilet's cleanliness. The television and its remote control in my room were not working, but I don't think it was a big deal for me. Briefly speaking, I would say it is a comfy one-stop body recharging centre and would be happy... More

My stay at the Potato Hotel at Taiping was ok. It was a affordable budget hotel. I wasn't looking for anything fancy. Got a 3 person room for a night at the ground floor, thank God we didn't have to climb the stairs! (There were no elevators provided.) Overall, the place was clean, and I would say it's stay-able. Though... More

We stayed there for a night in a family room, costs us RM128. Pros: - Both the room and bathroom is surprisingly spacious and clean - Comfortable beds and pillows - Shower and toilet works wonderfully - If you're driving, there are spaces to park just right across the street Cons: - No elevators, if you're climbing the steep stairs...
