I have never been to a hotel with such poor service level. How else would you rate service when a simple request for a hair dryer is fulfilled only 30 minutes later ? How else would you rate room service ordering when you take the menu from the room table to order, only to be told that it must be... More

Attended 5 days workshop in this hotel. Meeting facilities is quite good. Minor technical problem due to PA system. Foods were variety at Palong Coffee House for lunch and dinner, but for the meeting's coffee break (10am and 3:30pm) were a bit heavy and not variety (alternate of fried mee, fried rice, fried kuewtiaw). Staff were friendly.

We used to go there as it was new and clean. However, the standards have dropped from okay to horrible. When we checked in, there was no hand towel, face towel, floor mat or teaspoon in the room. When I rang the front desk, they showed up with one of each item. Took a few attempts before they begrudgingly brought... More

Monday to Thursday was quiet and very less traffic but Hotel was crowded during weekend. I didn't drive during this trip to Ipoh, therefore I have no choice but to dine in... More

The standard has dropped dramatically. We have been staying here on and off for a year, unfortunately it is worse now. It is dirty, the bedding was not clean, the rooms were dusty and the food in the main eating area on level 4 was of a very low standard. The breakfast was rubbish and not at all what you... More

I stayed in this hotel a lot of times in 2012, and recently stayed there yesterday and last week. I chose this hotel frequently because of the location.Two years ago I have to go the the hospital frequently for work, and it is one of the closest hotels in town. With nice view, comfortable room, a wide variety of breakfast,... More

Spent 2 nights in this hotel, which is supposed to be new and I would never stay there again. From the check-in experience to the hotel room, it was absolutely horrible. 1. The location of the hotel is on the riverfront and across from a large block of government assisted flats. The view from the room puts you in full... More

We were a group of 7pax travelled together and wanted the convenience of staying in one room and so we chose kinta riverfront suite apartment for a 3nights stay. Room space was good for the master room but very small for remaining two rooms and they all have funny smell. We suspected that the rooms were not aired probably. Night... More

The location is near to Kinta river which is a plus. Beautiful view at night. But Ipoh is not a big city, you can access to this area if car/ taxi. But the apartment is not good. It's spacious but security is lousy...They have dedicated security sitting on Ground floor but anyone can just take lift from parking level and... More

Good location. Though located at the busy Lim Bo Seng road, it is slightly off the main street along the beautiful Kinta River.Thus it has quiet surroundings. Very big and spacious lobby with plenty of seats while waiting to be checked in. The plus point is its riverfront. Quiet, serene and breathtaking view especially at night with its beautifully multicoloured... More
