Rooms on second floor but no lift. Wifi available but poor unless you went to the reception area on first floor. Our Rooms had river views which... More

Great value in this city/town hotel. Well run and clean. There is wifi, but reception's a bit spotty. Recommended for those keen to explore Kuala Lipis' historical attractions. We did a photo essay on the town here: http://my.news.yahoo.com/a-heritage-tour-of-kuala-lipis-024700129.html?page=all

We ran down to complain to the front desk downstairs and found a crowd of angry guests complaining about the water cuts. The hotel... More

Good, basic, clean, cheap, with river view. 50RM per night. Excellent value. (there is a second hotel with the same name probably in the same ownership)

I had earlier intended to check in at the Centrepoint Hotel but I noticed that Centrepoint is a bit run down and I began to have second thoughts. There was this new hotel just across the road, named Jelai and I decided to check it out. It was a real surprise . . the room is just adequate, not too... More
