Very unique accommodation in old but refurnished building with relatively clean and well maintained room and amenities provided. It kept it original frame and structure with vintage type of ambient and mixture modern. Strategic location for food with plenty of local food stall or cafe surrounded .

So imagine a setting where you loved the place so much you want to live there or at the very least take the ideas (and a chair or two) away with you. (No I did not take any chairs). But I can remember nearly every other detail about the room and this fabulous hotel. Even the shower is stunning. If... More

This was our first visit to Ipoh and on a friend's recommendation found this unique place called Sekeping Kong Heng. We stayed in one of the double rooms for one night and absolutely loved it. It is not a very luxury place, but comfortable and especially beautifully designed and oozes of character with it's mix of old and new. Also... More

I had to whatsapp Kit from You Le Yuen (separate review) to find out the proper name of this place. Found it online and made a booking with a Ms Lau. Happy to report that we were not disappointed. We combined the stay at SKH with night riding with the #ipohfoldies community which was outstanding. They had no problem meeting... More

Like any other Sekeping property, Sekeping Kong Heng did not fail to impress me. This might not be the place for family or couple's romantic getaway. It is certainly the place for a bunch of (laidback) friends to getaway for a few days. The walls pretty thin, so keep your noise level low. The floors are creaky, so keen your... More

We stayed in one of the apartments and absolutely loved the decor. As we were a little separate we didn't experience the restaurant noise that others have experienced but boy the street noise is pretty bad. Motorbikes up and down the street all night, not the hotels fault of course. Funky place, staff were encountered were lovely and some new... More

I would classify this place as basic, but different. The environment was beautiful. It was open and rustic and there were many plants. The room had nothing more than 2 beds, clothes hooks, a shower and a toilet. It was clean, however we did see a cockroach in the room. Tea and coffee facilities were available on the top floor...

We stayed in 1 o'clock room. It was facing the main road so u could hear the noise from the streets. Try getting a room facing inside. Room can get a bit hot especially during the day, though air conditioner were on. Staffs, only two, I'm serious, are friendly and helpful. Clean rooms with very basic amenities. Only bath gel...
