A fairly new hotel in Kampar. In fact the only decnt hotel in Kampar. Kapmapr itself is a very small and sleepy town in Perak, which owes its reawakening to the new campus for the University of Tenku Abdul Rahman (UTAR).
The hotel is just about the only high rise structure in the area with a very attractive facade that is a clearly recognizable landmark from quite a distance. Surrounding the hotel is a sleepy rows of shops which may or not choose to be open when you need something. There is enough variety of eating places so you will never go hungry. There is a MacDonalds just 5mins away and a convenience store just nearby.
The hotel is still relatively new so everything looks fairly fresh and in working condition. Given Malaysian tendency for things to run down quickly, I hope that things will remain as is for sometime. Furnishings are not luxurious but simple and functional. Room is comfortable and very quiet (no traffic in Kampar!). All conveniences are available including free LAN internet in the rooms and free wifi in the public areas. There is even a small gym (just treadmill and cycle. No weights).Service is very friendly and prompt. The complimentary buffet breakfast is however quite pathetic. I was staying there in an off-peak, and as there were few guests, the breakfast fare for appeared to have been sitting there for many days in a row.
All in all I think decent value for money. I would be happy to stay there again.
