The Furama is much nicer on the inside than you would expect from the outside. The hallways are nicely decorated with some artsy murals in bright colours and we really liked our room. We chose one with two mattresses on a raised wooden platform. Looks nice and we found it very convenient. The room was well maintained although the bathroom... More

From outside the hotel might look a bit run down and is not really appealing. But go inside it all changes. Nice, a bit kitschy decor. Somehow museum style. It even has a reading corner on the top floor. The rooms are clean, the wifi works very good as does the AC. Very comfortable bed. Good showers. Drinking water is... More

Hotel Furama is a great place to stay if you are in Taiping. Very friendly, close to the "action", clean and spacious rooms and great value at less than 20 pounds a night. Highly recommended. They also offer a laundry service.

What can I say but for that price, everything is considered very good. Good location, good value, good room etc. Check in is a bit slow when there are too many customer at one time, or else, there is nothing to complaint about this hotel. From outside, the building looks old but the room is new and clean. The cups... More

Initially we have booked The Cendana Inn at the peak of Maxwell Hill, due to the landslide, we put up at The Furama, again. This was our 4th visit. The hotel was getting better and better-new coat of paint at the reception, new floor tiles, new air cond and flat screen tv in the room, yet the price remained the... More

Our party of 3 adults, 3 kids (6-10yo) spent a Sunday night which coincided with the long weekend commemorating the King's Birthday. Nearly all other hotels were fully booked but we managed to get 2 rooms (one with a double and one larger room with a double & a single). Initially I was skeptical as my previous experiences with budget... More

Excellent hotel with spacious and clean rooms, big and clean bathrooms, and wide galleries with antique objects decorating them. Free tea/coffee sachets in room; free filter water in hotel lobby. Friendly staff, though English comprehensibility can be limited. Within 2 mins of walking distance of lake and a food court. Within 5 mins of walking distance from Omar's famous popiah... More

A nice, but fairly basic, mid-range option in Taiping. Good, clean rooms with a better than decent bathroom. In-room WiFi is a bit hit-and-miss. Close walking distance to a 24-hour food court that does good food.

Stayed here during a business trip in Feb 2014 mainly due to its ranking in TA. Was pretty disappointed with the room condition and overall set up of the hotel. There were ants in my room and writing table was dirty with stain. The overall room set up was like those Chinese hotels in the 70s. The bed was not... More
