“Nice New Hotel in Ipoh”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

The main reason we checked into this hotel in Ipoh was the swimming pool with its see-through glass. The pool did not disappoint. My kids enjoyed it and it was a good photograpy opportunity. The hotel is far enough from the hustle-bustle of the main town area, but near enough for a quick drive to the main areas. We booked a family room that came with 2 King beds. The room was big enough for 3 adults and 2 kids. Everything was nice and new (this hotel has been in operation for 3 months). The view from the room was good, since one side faced the Kinta river and the other window faced my alma mater, St. Michael's Institution. However, since this hotel is near 2 schools, I am not sure what the noise level is at during weekdays. The family room comes with 4 breakfast so we were well-fed. Spread was normal with pastries, cold cuts, some cheese (cheddar mainly) and your usual nasi lemak and sausages.
There were a few areas I felt the hotel could improve on (this is a positive way of complaining):
1. The touch screens were interesting but it should dim down even more at night when not in use. I found it distracting.
2. There were not enough (actually no) hooks in the bathroom for clothes.
3. The lifts were not linked and we had to press on all 4 sets if we were in a rush.
4. The breakfast juices should be low enough for kids (they just love using the dispenser).
5. Nobody picked up the phone (reception or housekeeping) at midnight.
6. If it was a family room for 4, the toiletries should be enough for 4.
These could be teething problems of a new hotel and hopefully they are improved on before my next stay so that I can give a higher star rating.

Room Tip: Choose the river-view rooms. The Kinta river, although small, has always given me a peaceful feelin...
