The location is very strategic at the heart of Ipoh city. Room size was just perfect for me. The king sized bed was perfect to accommodate the three of us (me, hubby n 12 year old daughter). I think the hotel had been recently refurbished as the decor is modern and the furniture looks new. Nice strong cool aircond and... More

Checked into the hotel with lovely deluxe room. Nice and clean too. The location is good with plenty of food around. It was Christmas Eve and was told there was no live band performing but had a pleasant surprise when there was a singer with a pianist in the lounge. The hotel's wifi is very slow too. Even my daughter... More

Stayed 1 night here in December 2015. A nice and simple hotel. Room size is good, toilet clean (most important). There are many foot reflexology shops around the hotel. No food problem as there is a food court just across the road, behind the hotel, there are a few tim sum restaurants (pack and got to queue). There are two... More

When we were on our way to Ipoh, I called the hotel and (was answered by Ms. Bawani) as I was worried if we could not reach in time. Upon arrival, after more than 5 hours of driving, there were no parking lots available and were told that there is a wedding function. I personally feel that they should allocate... More

Hotel Excelsior isn't five-star digs but is generally clean, comfortable and quite modern. Bonus points as well for good air-conditioning and the rain shower head. Sound carries very well in the rooms. I could hear people taking showers and walking around so if you're a light sleeper who gets woken up easily, this may not be the hotel for you.... More

Not exactly the cheapest hotel around, this property is in proximity to the Old Streets of Ipoh, Dessert street and several well-known dim sum joints (Yoke Fook Moon, Foh San). Arrived at the hotel with my booking slip and requested for two single beds in my room as reflected in their advertised photo, but the staff claimed that there were... More
