The view from my 16th floor corner room was breathtaking. The city has almost a rustic feel from up there and the mountains all around are spectacular. I pArticularly enjoyed the sunrise view. The breakfast was quite good too. I did wish though that the windows could be opened fully. It was very difficult to click photos through the dirt on the windows. But it is hard to blame the management. I had a feeling there is just too much dust aroundso cleaning all the windows and the huge glass-fronts of the lifts must be difficult. The keypad in the elevator did not accept any room key, the internet was erratic. Towels had that washed-in-hard-water feel, the shower had only 2settings: very hot and cold. Fortunately the weather was hot enough so the cold water shower was quite invigorating. The gym did not open till 8 am and i was not too impressed with the gym attendant. All the same, my stay overall was quite pleasant. Mainly due to a nice evening spent with colleague-friends roaming around in town, enjoying a gooooood South Indian dinner and a walk on the Riverfront, which is right in front of the hotel. The river itself would be classified a dainty river, if such a classification existed, but the money the local government has spent in making the riverfront colourful deserves appreciation. Apart from restaurants, there are lighted up artificil trees, a miniature Golden Gate bridge and a small museum about tin mining- the economic backbone of the Ipoh area for generations.
