Happy 8 is a terrace corner house converted to a boutique hotel with 5 rooms. All beautifully furnished with lots of stylish wood furniture.
The room itself is decent size. The common area spacious, with lots of siting area. I spent a lot of my (quiet) time there surfing the net, reading while the children watched TV in the room. The place is clean and well kept.
We stayed in the Palm Tree room. The price was quite steep for a room with 2 single + extra bed. It came out to be the same price of the Lotus Room which is the biggest room at The Happy 8, and it comes with a single bed + 1 King bed. So if you are like us, travelling with 2 kids, the better option is probably the Lotus Room.
The Happy 8 is located very near to the town centre. Most of the popular eateries are near by, making this a good place to stay when in Ipoh. There are a couple of coffee shops within walking distant which serves breakfast and lunch.
Our room rate came with breakfast, we were not offered any choices, and was served an egg (sunny side up) and ham sandwich, with 2 sausages and a glass of juice each. They did serve us tea when we asked for it though.
What my children love most is the big wooden bathtub in the toilet! They spent lots of time just splashing in the tub.
My only complain is the hard and thick pillows we got. I had to convert the duvet into a pillow instead.
I would definitely return if we ever needed to spend a night in Ipoh. Lovely place.
