We chose the Deluxe room which is located at 10th floor but we were having trouble identifying all the lifts that is connected to the room floors. As much... More

Newly renovated hotel which is situated near to walking distance to the walking streets for your eating & shopping experience. However the path to the car park on level 2) is a bit narrow. Free and strong wifi. Great breakfast even thou there are lots if eateries around the hotel. Very friendly staff.

Recently, my husband and I and two relatives stayed at the hotel. The front office staff were very friendly and efficient. The rejuvenated hotel is very clean and up-to-date in modern facilities. The range of food for breakfast was a bonus - catering to western and local tastes. Due to an emergency, we requested an extension to our checkout by... More

Do not confuse the Excelsior with wholesale renovations and new management with the former Excelsior which existed on this site. Everything is now clean and modern and well maintained. The staff members go out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. The hotel is well located in its proximity to good quality local restaurants, to shopping and to countless... More

Excelsior: the first international hotel in Ipoh. I was 16 when I first stayed here and I am almost 50 now! Being in an old part of town, I felt a bit apprehensive booking a room here but it was the closest hotel to my meeting venue. When we arrived, there weren't that many parking spaces as there was a...

I have booked this hotel based on the fact that there has been a refurbishment. But actually, they did not change their poor management. The second day (today) we did not have internet in the room. We went to complain to the reception. But they did not care. They did not offer us any compensation what so ever. But they... More
