Stayed here with family for 1 night during the labour day weekend. The hotel has been refurbished nicely and the rooms are a nice size. However the service is still lacking. There is no room service after 11pm so you will not be able to order food or drinks after this hour. We tried to order water that could be... More

This is a newly refurbished hotel at the town centre. The hotel staff are friendly and breakfast is good. Reasonably priced. Lots of eateries near the hotel and the shopping centre is just a 5 minutes walk.

Though this may not be a 5* Hotel, I would rate the room 5*! New, clean and very comfortable after their renovation. This property is ideal for those visitors who dont have their own transport but want to explore the town for their famous eateries and shop for their popular biscuits and cookies. Ipoh is famous for all these and... More

Stayed for 1 night on 10th April, 2015. I must say that I'm impressed with the new makeover! The hotel is long overdue for refurbishment. Room is brightly lit and lots of space to put our things. Individually controlled lighting and aircond. Especially like the bathroom which comes with standing bath and bathtub. I hope more training will be provided... More

Was there with mine husband for MATA FAIR IPOH from 13 - 15 March 2015. The hotel is newly refurnished and the room is clean. Service at the F&B outlets can be improved especially training the staff to smile and be more hospitality. As it is situated at the tourist area, i would strongly recommended the hotel to ensure they... More

Just stayed for a night so there is very little to say. Positive side: beautiful room, comfortable bed. car park for those who drives, big breakfast spread. Should offer more tv stations for free viewing. We were given the 6th floor. The rubber roof panels were right on the eye level so the view was spoiled. Oh do wake up... More

Visit Ipoh during the peak season, and finding a decent place to stay is just not an easy task. Running around the city and called more than 5 hotels, yet still no one could cater for us. Luckily Excelsior left deluxe rooms available at the quite reasonable rate. Checked in and immediately got showered after long drive. The room was... More

Stayed there during the Chinese New Year holiday. The hotel is a 5-10 minute taxi ride from Jalan Bendahara where some buses from Singapore make their final stop ( Buslines like Starmart and 701 Inc. have an office there.) The hotel is surrounded by restaurants (mostly Chinese) so finding a place to eat won't be a problem. Getting to the... More
