Spent 3 nights here and it was my first stay in the Furama although visited Tipping a few times before. It is a typical Chinese run budget hotel and at MR84(£14) pn good value for a mainland hotel. The rooms are a reasonable size with ensuite bathroom, hot shower, satellite TV,tea & coffee and free WiFi. It is situated very... More

We spent five day's here at the Furama hotel in Kuala Lumpur and have to say it's just as good as the other's we have stayed in. This hotel group are right up there with the best as far as value for money is concerned. The hotel is really central for Bukit Bintang, lots of authentic Malaysian restaurants near by... More

The hotel is old, but clean and well maintained. Rooms are spacious and linens clean. The Taiping Lake is just a corner away. Walking distance from Taiping old town. There's parking spaces available and guarded at night. Soundproofing is below average so noisy neighbours might irritate your sleep at night. WiFi is good. Friendly helpful staff. Will definitely come here... More

Everything is good except limited hair dryer. (Warm reminder: if you need a hair dryer must bring along or request early.) The toilet no smell but still can see some stains on the wall. Friendly staff, good location.

Whenever we are in taiping we chose to stay here. The location is the best, just around the corner from the beautifull lake and plenty of eateries nearby. The rooms are simple, clean and very good for the price you pay. It would be even better if they replaced the electric shower. The staff behind reception is so friendly and... More

Worst Indian breakfast rooms are very small.but location is good lot of things are nearby. Restaurant staff are either not cooperative or not understand the requirement. As a Indian we feel homely in Singapore.

It was a basic accommodation with convi eating places and a shopping mall nearby. 5 mins walk to Tasik Taiping. The wifi was strong enough. Free parking. However, I like quiet place and a comfortable bed to sleep, this hotel didn't meet my requirements. The room sound proofs was poor, I could hear ppl having fun with open air karaok... More

We have chosen this hotel because of the ranking in Tripadvisor and comments, but both of us think that it is over rated. As we had to wakeup early in the morning for the Taiping marathon run the next day, we planned to sleep around 10pm. But the room sound proofing was very poor. You could hear people walking up...

Arrived at 1945 from Kuala Lumpur, one night here. Clean and comfortable and well serviced. A very pleasant and relaxing experience at a good price. I'm happy to stay again. The location was good and very convenient especially to Doli famous koteow in Taiping.
