Kinta Riverfront Hotel is situated right in front of the Kinta River. The river is nothing to shout about as it is dirty and looks more like a giant monsoon drain. However, the night scenery is quite beautiful as there are trees that are illuminated in various colours. It makes a good place for some night photography.
The rooms are well maintained. The toilets are spotlessly clean. The furniture is in good working order. The air-conditioner worked too well and was pretty cold.
The only problem with the hotel is the poor service provided by the staff. Waiters at the hotel restaurant are slow in responding to requests. Front-desk staff is friendly but lack skills in dealing with guests.
The hotel is quite a good place to stay if you have transport as you can get to most of the popular eating places in Ipoh.The hotel is a walking distance from the Memory Lane Flea Market which is on Sundays.
