“Relatively new hotel but badly maintain”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Stayed a night here during my recent road trip holiday. Recommended by friends in Ipoh as I requested for a newer hotel.

Room rate was relatively high almost priced at a 4 star hotel charges.

So what I think is badly maintain -

Firstly, the lift is a bubble style lift with glass that you can view outside but the glass is blurry cause it is dirty.

Upon arriving at your floor, you will realize that for a new hotel the walls are dirty and stained.

In room, towel are thin that looks like floor mats, pillow are polyester and already busted with the stuffing coming out and all they did was the tie ip up to prevent further split.

Bed mattress is firm and nice in my opinion. Slept bad due to the pillow and checked out almost immediately the next morning and skipped breakfast in the hotel.

Overall not a great stay for one night and not worth the money

Room Tip: avoid if possible

Positives - Great size Room , Varietied Breakfast , Polite Staff !

Negatives - Non Exclusive Parking for Room Guests , thin and insufficiently wide curtains , dirty Corridors and dirty Room Windows .

Checked in 14 Dec 2013 to 1608 ( after changing from another due to broken master lighting ) supposedly to a Superior Junior Suite at RM 212 nett with breakfast for 2 , requested additional Extra Bed at RM 80 including breakfast . Room size is good , clean interior , view facing Kinta River , not bad at all . The kids love the view from the lifts where they get to view the river and city . Room condition is great with bathtub and rain shower . Beds are comfy but the sad thing is sunligh creeps in too early due to the thin and insufficiently wide curtains - This needs to be rectified soonest possible ! Breakfast variety is good with great and polite service . Checking in and out is a breeze ! Car Parking system needs to be re-assigned for room guests exclusivity rather than go round and round hunting for lots . Bear in mind this hotel is a favourite for holding wedding dinners and you can imagine the rowdiness it gets with the wedding crowd !

Room Tip: Even Numbered Rooms facing the river has a Great View

If you a want a nice clean hotel close enough to the city centre with fair price and everything else just about average, then you should have no complaints. Its real attraction is the river that flow pass this hotel coupled with artifical lighted trees at night that make this place unique. You may enjoy a meal by the river but don't expect great food as you find in the city.

The Good:

1. Spacious balcony with aircon compressors great for blow drying my wet clothes.
2. Friendly staff- a technician helpfully set up my son's bouncer toy when all we asked is a screwdriver!
3. Near to a done-up river walk with illuminated trees and some shops and eateries. Good for a after dinner stroll.
4. Mini convenience store at level one and Chinese restaurant.

The Bad:
1. The place was actually a bit dirty and run down. Poor maintenance for these "suites" or services apartments. Hotel room maybe better but these apartment really kind of bordering on "okay" and "nope".
2. The door leading to a supposed laundry area behind the kitchen is scary, dark and dirty.
3. The furnishings are outdated.
4. The bed is quite hard.
5. Toilet is functional but nothing luxurious.
6. We requested for high floor with view but none was available. We ended up overlooking rooftops , no river or city view but okay enough if we glaze far into the hills.

Overall, please do up the apartments if possible. Most Travelers won't mind paying a little more for cleanliness and comfort.

Huge and clean room. Spacious enough for the kids. The room is sparkling clean when i checked in. The see-through pool is great! The kids have loads of fun there. Walking distance to restaurants, hawker stall and the city. View from the room is very nice. Buffet spread is good. I really love this hotel.
