“Nice hotel, staff also very helpful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

My friend and I arrived at 630am in the morning. Without we asking can we check in now? The hotel staff let us early check in without any charges.

There are some restaurant located along the river opposite the hotel. Very nice feel

We heard that it's the 'best' hotel in Ipoh mainly because it's new. Hence we decided to give it a try. Overall, it was an okay stay. Nothing much to shout about.

The standard room we were in was alright, quite clean although the carpet was stained and looked worn out. Had a hard time adjusting the right temperature for shower (it's either too hot or too cold) and water was leaking out from the shower cubicle, causing the bathroom floor to be wet each time I shower (bath mat did not help). And there was not hairdryer in the room!

Breakfast spread and display was not great - it looked quite empty because everything is so spread out. I'm guessing that they are trying to make use of every permanent buffet counters they have in the coffeehouse, lol... I also find that the seating arrangement in the coffee house not conducive. The tables are set too close together and it was uncomfortable to move in between without excusing myself to the person(s) on the next table.

If you are not expecting much, the hotel is good for one or two nights stay.

The hotel is new. Service was good. The buffet dinner and breakfast was not good, terrible in fact. The food was cold. The rooms were clean as it is still new, but in the common areas you can start to see the area where the carpets are getting to wear out. Not much to rave about. Once again if it is not maintained it will be another white elephant on a rather pretty Kinta river view

Room Tip: Not much difference between delux and executive rOoms

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.
