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.

We arrived late in the evening, and we're welcomed by mister Foo who helped us a lot to find a suitable dinning place as we have a 3 year old with little taste for Asian food.. :) The room was clean, and well priced, overall a good experience.

We had two nights here. Hotel was generally very clean, comfortable, well serviced and reasonably spacious with sitcom. Staff were very welcoming and took great pains to give us great advice, researching options that we had not considered. Although not bookable by websites, the manager, Dannis, was very responsive to email in fluent English and bookings were easily confirmed. Our... More

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
