I stayed for a night ( this was my 2nd time ) towards the end of November at this 4 star hotel.
Getting a lift to my respective floor took a long time........on a number of occasions. I had checked in at noon and after lunch, we decided to adjourn to the lobby bar for drinks. This was not possible...................it only opens at 3.00 pm.
The next day, we went down for breakfast to be met by a huge, noisy crowd of people milling around. It was difficult to catch the eye of a waiter for a table. The restaurant looked more like a canteen in a high school. The food was quite poor in quality as well as presentation. My friend and I left in a hurry from that place.
In the afternoon, we tried to get some lunch and a beer but we were informed that this was a ' halal ' restaurant. I asked to speak to the manager and two individuals approached us. We were then informed that we could have the beer but that we would have to move to another dimly lit place next to the restaurant. We lost our desire for drinks and promptly adjourned to another place in Greentown which incidentally had the right approach, service culture and ambiance.
Will give this hotel a miss in future visits to Ipoh.
