Stayed only a night but for the price even with the lack of competition, I think it is value for money.
+ Good location. Walking out of the hotel, there are many eateries and other services easily accessible.
+ Rooms are big, clean and acceptable.
+ Price is reasonable, especially considering you need a 30 minute drive to the next decent hotel located in Ipoh.
+ Ample parking, but then we were there on a weekday.
- We had some problems with the key-card. You have to make sure the SIM card faces you when accessing the room but facing away when putting it into the energy slot.
- Air conditioning was a tad loud
Overall, I would recommend this hotel if you are in Kampar for business. Actually you don't have a choice.
