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

Stay there for a night. It's an old but well maintained hotel. Room is large enough for at least 3-4 visitors. Clean and simple. Water dispenser is easily available at each floor. Books are available for reading (not take-away) at each floor. Staff are very friendly, sharing information about eateries and things to do despite not giving out any simple... More

Hotel Furama is a very clean and welcoming hotel. Small but very homey. We booked a family room on the 3rd floor, no lift though so those travelling with old folks should inform them in advance, in order to get a room at ground floor or 1st floor. Our room has 2 queen size beds and a single bed, a... More

Yes, we were happy enough with this budget hotel. It has everything we need. For this price, we couldn't have asked for more! There is fairly good wi-fi (free) in the room, drinking water from the dispenser outside the rooms, coffee and tea and hot water flask in the room. The air-cond was working well. In fact, the owner knows... More

I've been staying at the Furama since the year 2000. The high standard of cleanliness and decor cannot be faltered. It's my home away from home as the staff as always so friendly and helpful. The position of the hotel is perfect being so close to the food courts, shops and the beautiful Lake Gardens where I love to walk... More

Clean rooms and cheap. Is a basic hotel, no breakfast option but plenty of eating options in the neighbourhood. Our family room was really small for 2 adults and 2 teenagers but all in all good value. Good wifi and nice location near the lake and food centres. Very good and affordable food courts within 100 meters. Friendly staff. Area... More

Noise: Chose this hotel based on other reviews that it is quiet. Unfortunately for us it turned out otherwise. 1st nite, was woken at 520am by chicken coo! Chicken was in the bungalow next door. Even with windows all shut, the continuous coo'ing kept me up and I never managed to go back to sleep. Asked for room change the... More
