I made myself from Perai to Ipoh for another destination for my business trip. Excelsior is one of the two hotels that are available with corporate rate with the Company (yeah! I am a cheap skate!). The last time I came to Ipoh and stayed here was several months ago. Colleagues and I were given a modernish refurb room which... More

I get the impression this hotel would have been one of the best back in it's time however everything now looks about 30 years old. Carpets were worn, paint peeling, stains here and there, etc. Staff and breakfast were reasonable, but overall I think there would be better options elsewhere.

After being unable book into another pref Hotel, we picked this hotel for location of foodstalls nearby. I was originally booked into a superior room which didn't feel like it with grey threadbare sheets, missing remote and an old fashioned method dial AC which looked rather dubious operational. Decided to upgrade to an Executive suite 80rm, which I would recommend!... More

Second time in this hotel, but would not have stayed here if not for my unadventurous family. Nothing special or to praise about this hotel. It is centralized, so are other hotels. The price is affordable, but there is a large variety of cheaper ones. The hotel is so old the elevator makes noise. Our last straw is the regrettably... More

Feb 2013 I chose the hotel because i wanted the old hotel feel...the fully carpeted, spacious room space, spacious toilet with bath tub. I know its weird but new hotels with the same rate would only offer a more compact space for bed, build in tv and an arms width of toilet space...hence small room. Went there with my family... More

I arrived on the 9th Feb 2013 and I headed to the car park (4 storey car park) with a security guard at the main entrance. Was asked for some security ID but at the same time I noticed there are some car park rates involved. Is the car park for outsiders as well? If it is true, then it... More
