“Nice service and clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

The guys at the front desk were very helpful. We enjoyed walking around town and had different dishes near the central market and just around the corner near the lake. The room was a good size with air con. The bathroom was a bit basic, with a water heater that didn't really heat and a toilet connection which resulted in water spurting out of the back.

Generally though good value. We had breakfast at the Flemington, 5 minutes walk away. They have a reasonable european effort for 12RMB.

Hotel Furama was great. If you need somewhere to stay at this location do not hesitate with this place.

Immacukately clean throughout. amazing beds and stunning room for its price range.

Amenities as described.

Nice interior design with plenty of art pieces to look at.

This place is only a breakfast offering short of a 3 start property.

Room Tip: room 201 was great

From the outside it looks like a sleazy, cheap hotel but you'll be surprised with the inside. For RM105 on public holiday you get all these:
1) spacious room with comfortable bed
2) practical bathroom
3) lcd tv with 15 Astro channels
4) water dispenser facility, no worry about making drinks
5) no cafe but many food outlets within walking distance
6) most importantly, clean room

Room Tip: Ask for a newly refurbished room (103).

We stayed at the Furama last week as part of a cycling trip with 6 guys. Riding from Ipoh, we were a bit tired and upon arriving at the hotel, the pinkish color really put us off. To be fair, we just passed by the grandiose Flemington as we skirted the beautiful Taiping Lake Gardens.

But don't be fooled! The lobby is tastefully decorated and the service was top notch. What stroked me was the generous size of the rooms and they were so squeaky clean. Their Burmese staff obviously take great pride in their work. What was also nice was the cold aircon and complimentary water dispensers on each floor. The free wifi and computer in the lobby added to a great stay.

As cyclists, one of the most important feature in any hotel we stay in is the parking facilities. The Furama comes top here as they allowed us to park in a gated back area which was sheltered. All this plus a very reasonable priced rate of 85RM makes the Furama absolutely worthy of the #1 ranking hotel in Taiping.

Can't recommend it enough.

The hotel outlook is well preserved. As you enter into the lobby you will be amazed the setting, the comfort and friendly staffs. The hotel rooms corridor are newly painted. It's just 3 mins walk to Taiping Lake. A huge food court just right behind this hotel and most area only walking distance away. It is strategically located in the heart of Taiping.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012 via mobile

This was probably the best room we were able to get in this price range in Malaysia. Beautiful ensuite and very spacious, not the typical asian size. We were a bit suprised by the attitude of reception staff when first thing after arrrival (at around 7PM) we were told that we are an hour late and "we should have called" and got a bit of a lecture "but next time, you have to call". Also, they tried to tell us the room rate is actually 102 MYR instead 79 MYR which we had been confirmed before. We did not seem to happy about it so the rate magically changed to 82MYR. However, as said above, we liked the room a lot.The hotel is not far from the Zoo which we recommend (15 minute by foot) and close to the main street.
