“Pros and Cons of this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2010

Pros> 1) The hotel staff were pretty friendly and efficient
2) The hotel was clean and had all basic facilities
3)Although there is no restaurant in the hotel itself, The cafe beside the hotel served good food.
Cons> 1) The ac in the room could not be adjusted, it was pretty cold
2) They do not provide toothpaste and toothbrushes
3)The hotel location is quite deserted. Few people around the area.
Overall, its still a good hotel. I rate it 7.5/10

> The room is spacious with two single beds
> Room price is not very cheap, around MYR 130, maybe due to holiday
> Location is nice and not noisy; and there is flea market on Sunday
> Parking space a lot, quite safe
> Room is tidy, washroom is clean
> easy access to fast food restaurant. Many other choices beside fast food within walking distance (10-15mins walking)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2009

Firstly, despite the way Tripadvisor has listed it, Ipoh City Hotel is, in fact, a hotel and not a B&B. It is large multi-story hotel located in the centre of downtown Ipoh. There is nothing even vaguely guesthouse about it.

Our room was nicely furnished, had hot water and a mini-bar. It was perhaps not as modern as the hotel lobby suggests the rooms will be, but it was certainly comfortable enough.

The hotel restaurant, Houston Cafe, offers good Chinese food at reasonable prices and was very convenient on the night of our rainy visit.

As with most budget and mid-range hotels in Malaysia, service was capable but not what you would call friendly.

All in all, at less than RM100.00 a night for a double room, The Ipoh City Hotel is a good mid-range choice.
