“Drop in standards”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

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.

Friendly hotel staff. Most importantly, they have their own private carpark. Convenient location. Don't expect much on breakfast spread but it is acceptable. Recommended for big family; opt for their apartment which is cheaper but don't expect stylish.

Avoid this hotel if possible
1. Poor noise isolation, noise easily heard at other levels & at corridor
2. Poor material use by hotel e.g. furniture is cheap, bath shower water leak & poor water pressure, water, water Choke at shower
3. Poor breakfast by hotel
4. poor Glass panels hardly able to lock

But the room housekeeping done promptly & room is clean.

I took a football squad of 30 players and staff to the Hotel for a 3 day stay. The trip was superbly arranged by Hotel manager Ms Mariana Abdul Hamid who took the time and trouble to arrange everything we needed. The Hotel had a good gym and Pool for our use and meetings rooms. The food was plentiful and they also provided special need foods for some of our non Malaysian players.
A great trip and I would highly recommend the hotel for any groups travelling to Ipoh.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has good internet access

Booked the 2 bedroom apartment (regency apartment) for my family. Not many hotels in Ipoh actually offer apartments, and that too at a reasonable price. Furthermore, this hotel is located close to restaurants, reflexology & massage parlours, nail spa... All of these are walking distance from the hotel, unlike most other hotels which are pricier. Reception staff are very friendly and helpful. Room decor and furniture was not too bad. Breakfast spread is acceptable, but you can choose to walk to the nearby hawker centre / restaurants for breakfast too if you have the time. After all, Ipoh is also a food heaven... I would recommend the apartments to couples / family / groups that are travelling to Ipoh and looking for a nice hotel close to amenities.

The suite I got was spacious, colorfully decorated, has a huge attached bathroom with Jacuzzi & separate bath area. The view from the suite was very nice. Overall cleanliness was good but air cond needs to be serviced or replaced. It broke down during my stay. Otherwise, a good alternative place to stay when you are around in Ipoh if you have your own transport.

Staying here for a night at Regency Apartment (2-bedroom apartment). First, was given an apartment that was near to the lift but we found out that there was water leak. The bellboy was kind enough the change the apartment for us. The new apartment unit was bigger.

Amenities inside the apartment were simple and its looks cheapskate. The apartment was spacious and clean except the floor was dusty. I think it is not being sweep and mop for more than a week. Even the bellboy was wearing his shoes inside the apartment.

Buffet breakfast was limited selection/variety.

It is nothing much to compliment. Room and other services were just at acceptable level only.
