From a distance it look like a very grand kind of hotel with architecture of a difference. Celebrating its 22nd anniversary this year. It need some refurbishment as everything look old and worn-down. As you get into the room, you will have the feeling of stepping into the past. What I liked; Good location- town center, near a shopping mall,... More

I booked a family room and had my stay at the hotel for a night during 2015 Malaysia Chinese New Year festival. Check in was easy and straight forward and was given a multi entrance parking validation slip which you need to present to the car park cashier when you drive out from the hotel. There are 3 parking levels... More

I stayed here for one night mid October 2014. The hotel is in a nice location and within walking distance to shophouses and a huge mall. However, it is an old hotel. Water pressure wasn't great and it took a bit of tweaking to be able to get hot water shower. Everything about the hotel look antiquated and in need... More

Walking distance to a shopping mall and the famous dim sum street. Convenient for those who want to explore shops nearby. Room condition is not at its best, furniture and bathroom look worn and dates.

The hotel's interior gives a nostalgic feeling, especially the restaurant and bar, they are quite old school and make us feel like stepping into a time machine. This can be said for the room amenities as well, where the bathroom pipes are due for replacement (rusty pipes and loose fitting tap). Otherwise, no major complaints as the location is really...

I stayed at Syuen Hotel at the beginning of December. Given that this is a 21 year old Malaysian hotel, I would say that the condition is still acceptable. However, the furniture and carpet is starting to show signs of age and a good round of renovations is due. The design of the furniture as well as the bathroom are... More

This is an old property needing an update quite badly. The housekeeping is not to standard, and the bathrooms are not only worn and dated but needing a good cleaning - e.g. mold on the grout and caulking. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedroom are a plus. They have a small pool. Oddly, there are no towels supplied at the pool.... More

Nothing different from my 1st stay in this hotel, everything is fine but the breakfast quality still can be improved. The hotel is nearby Ipoh Parade and with walking distance, you can find hawker stalls opposite Esso petrol station.

The size of the room is big but the finishing and furniture are a bit old. These still can be tolerated. The cleanliness of the bath room is totally unacceptable. There is thick and black color mold around the rim of the bath tub and the sink...I mean "THICK"!! I have inform the hotel personnel and the reception. The receptionist... More
