Luckily we booked only 1 night stay at this hotel. No doubt the hotel is clean, the atmosphere tends to be gloomy. In fact, I think we were the only guest around there....or maybe 2 or 3 rooms occupied in the hotel. I guess that it was probably we checked in on a Sunday. If one has to look for... More

We stayed one night in this hotel and would probably not recommend this hotel for more than one night as it is a bit far from the center. For one night it was perfect, spacious room clean sheets and a cheap price.

Last stayed with the hotel in October 2011. It has been a lapse of @2.5 years since last visit. Room remained spacious and clean. Amenities were sufficient for the category of its 'class'. Cleanliness overall was comparable to those 3 or 4 Stars hotel anywhere. The standard has not diminished though the hotel has a change of owner.

Warm welcome from the woman on reception. Room was big with a useful table. Hot shower was good. Aircon worked well. Wifi excellent. We asked for a room at the back to be away from road noise and it was quiet for 2 out of 3 nights. The restaurant on the corner opposite hotel is excellent for cheap dosas for... More

It's a budget property in Ipoh with friendly staff and basic amenities. The location is quite central and good, but the hotel is a little bit hard to find. No much shops and restaurants in the nearby, it's quite busy street but one can find some coffee shop near. The room was very spacious and comfy, the cleanlines not perfect... More

My mom initially booked this hotel for its price and its good reviews about cleanliness. It is budget but definitely not entirely clean.The room and bathroom are indeed spacious. However, we were dissapointed to find 5 baby cockroaches within the room (3 on the floor, 1 on the bed and 1 on the towel). We complained to the receptionist on... More

We were looking for a no-frills budget hotel in Ipoh not too far from the city center and Hotel Shangg did not disappoint. The hotel is easy to locate. I'd called the hotel earlier to confirm my check-in and inform the reception of the time I'd be checking in, and it was a nice surprise to have the receptionist remember... More

Mom and I were on a no-plan roadtrip, and we stopped by at Hotel Shangg our first night. Ended up liking Ipoh so much, and after a friendly chat with Mr. Murthi (at Hotel Shangg), decided to stay on another night. He was generous with his tips on where to have breakfast (and later, dinner!) and what are some must-sees... More
