My stay at the Potato Hotel at Taiping was ok. It was a affordable budget hotel. I wasn't looking for anything fancy. Got a 3 person room for a night at the ground floor, thank God we didn't have to climb the stairs! (There were no elevators provided.) Overall, the place was clean, and I would say it's stay-able. Though... More

It was a terrible experience I have never had! When I thought there was a hair on the pillow and trying to pull it away but a big cockroach suddenly ran out! What the hell?!! It was a cockroach! I complained to the Indian guy of front desk and requested to change room but was declined. He was trying to... More

We stayed there for a night in a family room, costs us RM128. Pros: - Both the room and bathroom is surprisingly spacious and clean - Comfortable beds and pillows - Shower and toilet works wonderfully - If you're driving, there are spaces to park just right across the street Cons: - No elevators, if you're climbing the steep stairs...

Not a bad hotel, is was clean, modern and with large rooms, good air conditioning. Staff helpful and friendly, they quickly repaired the lock on a window that was missing. A few eating places nearby. The only problem is that this hotel is a long way from the town of Taiping, it's ok if you have your own transport. If... More

The hotel is easily accessible. After the Changkat Jering tol, its takes only about 5-10 minutes drive to the hotel. Not much fuss on checking in. The room is quite spacious and the aircon is good for a boutique hotel. Anyway some tips though, they provide a jug and glasses, but you have to go down to the bar counter... More

agoda suggested this place as a hotel in Taiping. Not only is this a motel where they book people for hours (sic!) but also it's far from the lovely town of Taiping and taxi drivers are not really happy to take you from the town to your so called hotel. It's next to the busy gas station, when we were... More

We wanted a Hotel between Taiping city and Kuala Sepetang. Potato Hotel is a budget hotel located about 6km from Taiping city center and 10km from Kuala Sepetang (Port Weld), so you must have a car if you want to go around. There is a petrol station and a few eateries and sundry shops nearby but a car is still... More
