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

hotel is right in the town and walking distance to most of eateries. just newly renovated so everything is new. A shower curtain is needed in the bathroom as the water will splash easily with the design.

Newly renovated hotel situated near to Ipoh Parade. Great location in the middle of city. Check in and check our process very fast. The receptionist not that friendly but they are helpful. Management should look into this, at least train them to smile to customer so we can feel very welcoming. The room was very comfortable and very clean. Variety... More

Me and my bf stayed here for our 2nd night in Ipoh and by the first impression of the hotel, I find it very clean, with simple and modern welcoming ambience. 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
