Wet there for a wedding, and used the suites instead of the hotel. Suites were bare, but since it had several rooms I suppose I couldn't complain. Clean and central if you're new to Ipoh, but other than that, nothing much on offer.

Stars here one night . Was good for a night . New hotel so all things are nice and clean. Rooms were good and well appointed. A few things broken such hose holder . Wifi was very slow, so slow it wasn't worth using it. Staff and service were good enough. Breakfast was terrible . Poor quality food, despite the range. Coffee was awful too.

For RM 200 a night it's ok and not had for a night or two. Would not want to stay longer. Given I'd only ever be in Ipoh for a night and needed something on that level of price then I would still stay there but if I was going to stay longer or with my wife I would stay somewhere better.

When I first reached the apartment, i found the apartment to be a little small but comfortable. My family of 5 stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment and it was alright for all of us.

Even though the apartment was a little small but it was ok and didn't feel cramp. The furniture was arranged in a way that it didn't feel cluttered or uncomfortable.

The location of the apartment was close to town. The places that we were required to go to were within 3-5 mins drive. We didn't really need to rush as the place was pretty accessible and we could reach out destination within minutes..

One thing I found pretty interesting was the coloured, lighted up trees at night when we returned to the apartment. That was a lovely sight.. I liked the each room and hall were place with mirrors so that was a nice touch..

Only complaints I have are the bed sheets were a little stained and there wasn't enough plug points for all of us to charge our electronics. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay and will come back again.

Modern looking apartment with modern furniture. Non-cooking kitchen with no appliances for food prep. Only a kettle and 4 sets of cups/drinking glasses...no plates nor forks/spoons available. I really encourage to them at least have those provided at their apartments. Efficient maintenance though. Got a clogged bathtub upon checking in (3/4 full of water!!!)...less than 15 min after complain the maintenance guy came in to fix it. A master bedroom with attached bath (king size bed), a bedroom with 2-twin size beds and a bedroom with a queen size bed. Flat screen tv at the living and master bedroom provided. Slow wifi connection though.

Room Tip: Got a unit that faces the riverfront....it has an awesome view albeit a hot balcony due to aircond c...

A very new 4 star hotel in Ipoh. Lots and big space of rooms. Nice view facing colorful LED lighting on Kinta River. Spacious & nice view restaurant at 4th floor with lots of choices for breakfast. The swimming pool at 5th floor also very nice but a bit small. Ample of car park lots.

But not even single staff giving smile during my 2night stay...during check-in, in elevator, restaurant and check-out...not friendly. I know they were tired bcoz of the royal grand opening of the hotel but smile make no sweat...

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the Kinta River...very nice night view
