“Super Unexpected”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We went to Tanjung Malim recently to visit some family and wanted to look for a nice and clean decent place to stay. We were recommended a new place called LP Hotel Tanjung Malim.

It was super unexpected. Tanjung Malim being a small town and close to a much bigger town - Ipoh + KL - its quite a sleepy town with semi-temperate climate (for Malaysian standards!), we expected a overly utilitarian hotel with with a simple bed and maybe a clean toilet.

But instead, we were met with a very clean small hotel (2 shoplots, I think) and actually quite boutique! It was very personalized and simply adorable with little touches of quirky old school furniture littered among the whole hotel. We had fun exploring what the weird items were! Yes there were some Ikea elements in the place, but it worked and tied in beautifully. I loved the colored lanterns in the rooms too.

For the price we paid, we loved it. We stayed in a Excutive suite with a King bed and attached toilet. The bed was very comfortable, better then some of the high end hotels I have been in and I loved the bedsheets. Simple white, definately higher then normal thread count and smelled nice and clean. There was plenty of space in the suite, easily accommodate another extra bed for kids. The toilet/bathroom was also well equipped - with shampoo, soap and stuff. So nice to have amenities in a budget hotel. Hot water and bathtub too! And they provided so much snacks, hot drinks and water!

The owners are also super friendly. They even showed me a room which they referred to as the Nat Geo room (reference to the National Geographic rectangular logo). This room had a bed by a wall that had a rectangular "window". Its hard to explain, but see the pictures. Very cute room. I think kids would love it.

The only drawbacks i have about LP Hotel was that it did not have breakfast (but then again, nearly all budget hotels don't. But they set such a high standard with the rooms, that you kinda "expected" it?). And the other drawback was that it was in Tanjong Malim - a place that I hardly visit to stay a night cause I would love to go back to LP to stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for the Nat Geo room! :)
