Bright, clean and comfortable hotel. We were on the ground floor, which was fine. Hot water flask for tea/coffee. Hotel parking across the road. No restaurant but loads of eating places close by. Convenient for lake gardens and the museum.

Hotel Furama is a little gem in Taiping. Situated very near the Lake Gardens and within easy walking distance of the town and the starting point for a visit to Maxwell Hill (Bukit Larut), the hotel is modest when viewed from the outside. Inside, however, it is immaculately clean, with simple but highly effective design of the bedrooms. The bed... More

Stayed for one night in a standard room at the rate of RM116. The room was very clean. Front staff (the owner of the hotel) also really friendly. This hotel near the Taman Tasik Taiping which is exactly a walking distance. Have parking at the front the hotel (more secure for your car). Tips: asking for lower room because this... More

This hotel will always be the default choice whenever I return to Taiping. It's clean and feels safe and most importantly reasonable. Rooms are spacious with hot shower. Best of all its just a stone's throw away from the famous Lake Gardens.

My wife and I had to attend a wedding in Taiping and selected this hotel for an overnight stay. We reached this hotel at almost midnight on 21-03-2015. We located this hotel easily using Waze. Check-in was quick and the sole staff on duty was very polite. Our room (Superior @ RM118.00/night) was clean with a king size bed and... More

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
