We were looking for a no-frills budget hotel in Ipoh not too far from the city center and Hotel Shangg did not disappoint. The hotel is easy to locate. I'd called the hotel earlier to confirm my check-in and inform the reception of the time I'd be checking in, and it was a nice surprise to have the receptionist remember my name when I walked in at the stated time. Check-in was a breeze, as there were no others around. Hotel lobby was basic with some leaflets on Ipoh/Perak around for travelers to go through.
The hotel is a walk-up, and the corridor stairs are nicely carpeted. We'd booked a family deluxe which has two queen beds. Upon first impression, the room was clean and welcoming. Beds were firm and adequate bedding was provided. Room was not too small, just enough space for your needs. The air-conditioning worked fine. Bathroom was roomy enough, and very clean. Perhaps one of the best-looking toilets I've experienced in budget accommodations, looked relatively new. Good quality towels were also provided, as well as basic toiletries. Shower pressure was satisfactory and hot water worked fine.
The hotel is located in a rather busy area so one wouldn't have to worry much about returning too late. Staff is friendly and helpful, and were able to provide us with provisions requested (i.e ironing board) in a timely manner. There is limited parking provided inside the hotel, and along the adjacent road.
Overall, I had a pleasant stay at Hotel Shangg and would recommend it to anyone out there looking for clean, affordable accommodation in Ipoh.
