“Nothing French but clean with friendly service”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I am very fussy about cleanliness and was thus very pleased to find a clean hotel from the front door all the way to the bathroom. Front desk was manned by friendly ladies who provided helpful information on where to eat and places of interest. For the price we paid (MYR 168 nett) we found this hotel has comfy beds, pillows, bottled water, LCD TV, good working air conditioner, all the usual toiletries and amenities, complimentary car parking and the fastest wifi. Top of the art shower was a little challenging to operate. Perhaps hotel should consider putting instructions in the bathroom on how to operate. Many restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. Also used this hotel as a base for a day trip to Cameron Highlands to visit the Boh Tea Plantation which was about two and a half hours drive from the hotel. So if you are looking for a clean and conveniently located hotel you can't go wrong with this hotel.

Hi mate from down under
I really can’t help but to comment on your beautiful comments. So this is going to be a short one, just to share your good feelings.
I love your “very fussy about cleanliness”, you have our young lady who is head of housekeeping to thank, she is REALLY fussy, she sets the day to day standard.
I also love your “fastest wifi” observation. As stated in our amenities we have 10 routers to serve 48 rooms, our location has no optical fibre yet; if we have, I am not sure what superlatives you will use. For general info, we have 2 routers per floor, if one does go kiwi mountain tortoise slow, switch to the other and tell our “friendly ladies” (borrow your words) to reset it.
All in all, thank you for staying at our humble lodge. Last 2 YES SIR – 1) instructions for our Rain Shower, iFH staff take note. 2) - we are IPOH French hotel. Cheers!!

Located just center of the city. Walking distance to the food heaven in Ipoh so u won't worry about traffic jam and parking. Eg: lou wang bean sprout chicken, tau fu fa, egg tart, white coffee and etc

Clean, comfortable, well-maintained and inexpensive rooms.
Helpful, friendly, cheerful staff.
Convenient, well-placed location.
Delicious, affordable good food close by.
Everything you could possibly ask for in a hotel can be found here.
The question is: why can't everyone else be like that?

Was in Ipoh for a night with 2 other friends. Didn't expect a such a nice hotel right in the heart of Ipoh town. The Lobby is spacious, furnished with comfy couches for guests to chill while getting your check-in/check-out done. The staff are really friendly, even the maintenance staff would greet the guest (which is something uncommon nowadays). The room is clean, comfortable. I love the bathroom. It is spacious and modern. The only thing I find pricey is the extra bed. RM40 for a mattress is rather pricey. Other than that, if you are driving, you have to park a little further down as the hotel does not have it's own parking.

This hotel is very near to those famous restaurants and foods. 7 eleven is just next to the hotel. Room is small but very clean and tidy. Rain shower bath, safe and LCD tv. The inconvenience is the hotel do not have their own parking, you have to park at an open parking which is next to the hotel's street and means u will get wet if raining. I will choose this hotel again if I travel to Ipoh.

I love this place! Rooms are nice, modern, clean and chic! The price was affordable and the cafe on the first floor was awesome! Best hotel breakfast I've had in a boutique hotel. It looks like Ben's Restaurant in KL with fresh bread/cookies/biscuits! I honestly did not expect Ipoh to have a hotel with a cafe like this. There's also a 7e store nex to the hotel and restaurants within walking distance. It was a pleasant experience staying here. Staff are super friendly - I accidentally left my glasses while I was there, they had it send via courier to me within a few days! No questions asked. Thanks French Hotel!!

Stayed for 2 nights and love the room design. Felt like home. Staffs were friendly and helpful especially on the matter of getting around for local food and getting taxi. I can still remember their names.

Cafe on the first floor (josephine or Jose&Deli..something) was quite nice, but extremely overpriced. For the same thing in KL, I wouldn't mind to pay the same, but this is ipoh...the price is ridiculous.

I will return to ipoh for more food and relax days, and if no other hotel comes up better in review, I will definitely return to this hotel.
