“Stench of toilet smell”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Despite the good location,the cleanliness of the room is doubtful as well as the intolerable stench of toilet smell both in the room and along the corridor. The rooms near the main road can be quite noisy. It's better not to open the window during the day because your room will be filled with food smell within few seconds.

This new budget hotel in Ipoh is located where all the good food are. Just across the street from the most famous Salted Bake Chicken, it is also a minute walk to the famous Bean Sprout Chicken shops, biscuit, Tau Foo Far shop, Dim Sum, 'Police Station' Curry Mee and Hakka Mee.
Rooms are comfy and clean.

Room Tip: Rooms next to the main road can be a bit noisy.
