This was a fun restoration of a historic building, with an amazing shower experience, comfortable beds with reading lights on both sides, hooks hanging down from the ceiling for towels. We went for a swim in the swimming pool before dinner, and it was just us enjoying a very private setting. The fun of the place outweighed the drawbacks (innumerable... More

This is the funkiest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. It’s all industrial design in a reclaimed building. And it doesn’t really work, which is a shame. First, the web site is too cute by half, and so photo heavy that it crashes an iphone. When you arrive it’s impossible to find, as there is no signage, except for a tiny... More

I found it quite hard to write this review. I really wanted to love this hotel and at first sight, I did. The quirkiness of the location (behind an old-fashioned Ipoh kopi tiam of the same name) and the modern clean lines of the interior design which tried to preserve the original structure of the building while lending a modern...

I am writing this at 2.40 am as I have not been able to get any sleep at all for the past 2 hours. The sound proofing in this hotel is non-existent. I can hear everything that my neighbours - whether next door to me or above me are doing - whether they are walking around in their rooms, switching... More

Stayed over the weekend (16th - 17th November)with a group of friends after our cave exploration in Gua Tempurung. Sekeping Kong Heng is behind the popular "Kong Heng" coffee shop. We occupied 3 standard rooms and 1 family room on the first floor. The rooms I must say might look pretty antique but its very clean. The standard room is... More

I needed to go to Ipoh for business. This hotel seemed like a cool place to stay. Right downtown, even though there really is not a big downtown. Upon arrival at the hotel, there was not a clear place to check in. The gate was also locked. Finally someone came out to check me in and unlocked the door. He... More

Now that I have read other reviews and seen an outline sent to other prospective guests re: staying at this hotel I under stand a little better, what I didn't understand when I arrived at this stunning property. It is a beautiful design, there is no denying this, however I wonder how much money the owners of this place actually... More

Whether or not you'll like this place, comes down to two factors: 1) The design. Practicality is not a priority, the place has numerous fences and doors they give you a set of keys to manage while you whisk in and out. The bathroom and bedroom merge into one space. Steep stairs, creaky floors. That said, there is a huge... More

There is not a whole lot of choice in Ipoh, but this Sekeping retreat is genuinely fantastic! It's tasteful, has character, and wonderful design. Set in an old warehouse building, it's been turned into a modern hotel. This is not the place for you if you are looking for a more conventional hotel - the reception is basically a hole... More

As a travelling family, we always research the hell out of places before jetting off, and were thrilled to find the Sekeping properties online. Sekeping Kong Heng is quite simply beautifully beautifully designed. We booked for two nights, one night in the regular rooms (we took two putting our older two children in one and taking the other with our... More
