This was a really good find - a modern bright well designed hotel! Right in the Center of New Ipoh!
Easy to get around and visit different places - walking distance from the night market and many famous restaurants!
The rooms were bright (without window) spacious with excellent bathrooms/showers.
The staff were very helpful and friendly.
The restaurant for breakfast was just like a little shabby chic bistro - if I had been there longer I would have liked to have tried it one evening! Breakfasts were good - but had to be pre ordered the day before!!
Great Hotel!!!!

Great little hotel which is perfectly situated near some of the best eating places;they even throw in a map with some of the best places to eat. The room was spotless; it had a nice bathroom, good internet and very well trained and helpful staff. Five stars.

We were in Ipoh for 2D1N . After searching and reviewing some comments, finally decided to stay in French Hotel - based on the high review points by TA.

We travelled in a group of 4 adults and 2 small children. Therefore we booked for Super Deluxe King which can add in extra 2 mattresses. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable.

Their reception staff are very friendly and considerate. During check-in, one of them saw that I have a baby with me, she immediately offered to bring the baby bath tub to my room. I am surprised with their attentiveness to customers' needs.

The hotel location is good. 7-11 is just next door and the famous local foods are all nearby. Parking is provided but the parking lot is a public car park and located 1 block away.

Overall we are very satisfied with the room and service provided.
Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed there for 1 night, traveling by car with family (4 year old child). Rooms are new and clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Sleep quality was good. We did not try breakfast so cannot comment on that. Neighborhood not very nice, but you find many restaurants and bars in walking distance. Would recommend this hotel to a friend.

The hotel is well located. 8-10 ringgits from the bus station. It is walking distance to old city and night markets and bus stations. The reception staff is very friendly and will provide good recomendations for eating out and sight seeing. We booked a taxi for sightseeing tour ( mr chong). Good driver, drove us straight to the sights and no cheating.
The rooms are decorated in modern chic style. WE had the large deluxe with king size bed on the back of the hotel. Very quiet room. Only issue would be the bathroom located in the middle of our room with glass walls. Not recommended for family with kids.
Wifi was bit slow. Rooms are large and clean. Beds were comfortable.We did not book breakfast. Food cafe and restuarants are very good and cheap in Ipoh. We preferred to eat out all the time.

Room Tip: Choose room at the back for quiet night's sleep.

The hotel is brand new and is in very strategic location. Devastated that my reservation was cancelled because I arrived late but was upgraded after I threatened to give a bad review. Try to get room with window and was put off that need to add money for breakfast because the hotel is a bit pricey for a 3 star. Overall a good choice for a short stay.

Thanks to Damien and all the reception staff, this hotel gave us a wonderful impression of Ipoh. Nothing was too hard. More people should stop here on their way from KL to Penang. Room was comfortable and clean with easy access to Ipoh sites and food...... Ipoh food is exceptional! Don't be in a hurry getting breakfast from Jose & Deli.
