“Best 3-star hotel with well trained staff”

Really good rooms. New and clean. Our room did not face the beautiful Taiping Gardens directly but we had the serene misty hills to feast on. Reservations was professionally handled, check in was prompt and room service was fast. Very good value for money..

Booked a superior room using Booking.com at a published rate of RM 119, which is the rate not including the 6% government tax. The rate inclusive will be RM 138. Receptionist was very professional and check in was smooth. Parking security was provided so don't have to worry about your car. But negotiating the entrance to the basement car park can be a challenge, the turning was quite narrow and sharp. The superior rooms are the ones not facing the Lake Gardens, but nevertheless the room is of excellent quality, was complete with basic toiletatries and coffee maker. It is adequate for a good night rest after a long day work.
Breakfast was excellent with plenty of Malaysian and Western dishes to choose from.

At Skybar the choices of alcoholic beverage is rather limited, with Tiger, Calsberg, Asahi and Hoegarden in the menu, but nevertheless the ambiance was very relaxing and the waiter was friendly. Great to have a chilled beer while watching the sunset over the Lake and nearby hills.

The location: Within the Taiping Lake Gardens, 10 minutes to Taping Zoo, 5 minutes drive to Taiping town and 10 minutes to Bukit Larut( Maxwell Hill). The Lake Garden and Maxwell Hill view from Skybar/ Swimming Pool is breathtaking. Overall the most breathtaking hotel in Taiping, even when didn't get the rooms facing the lake.

Good coice of hotel as this hotel located within famous Taiping Lake Garden. This hotel having the infinity swimming pool on the roof top. The room was just the right size with flat screen TV.

Further improvement needed to provide ample parking lots for guest as the basement parking inssufficient if there are function happening in thier banquet hall. The rest.... Thumb up.

I was there for one night for a business trip. We have chosen the premier room as the price is still within our limit, hence we had the luxury of the lake view that would not have been available otherwise.

Breakfast was so-so.

Room Tip: Make to ask for the room with lake view - it's worth the extra ringgit you have to pay.

The location was excellent, it just right in front of the Lake Garden and about 10 mins walk away from the popular Taiping Zoo and the environment was so "GREEN"!!
The hotel was not big but it was well equipped with swimming pool at the root top with glass panel as a wall which give you the feeling that you are swimming on the air. There was a bar beside the pool called "Sky Bar" which you can enjoy yourself with drink and music. The hotel do have a "Mini" Car Park at the basement which carter for around 30 cars but you need to have good parking skill to parked your car there otherwise you can park your at opposite of the hotel which just at the side of the lake
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The buffer breakfast serve in the hotel was nice. The restaurant in the hotel serving some nice local food for lunch and dinner with reasonable price.
You can rent a bicycle at the hotel to cycling around the lake side.

Room Tip: Room facing the lake

Was there on New Year's eve, what a bargain for a great view of the lake (and also the fireworks at night). I booked a premier room, it was actually very small but I was prepared not to expect much from a small town hotel.

The only hiccup is the very unfriendly front desk stuff, talking to me almost in the tone of anger when I asked about the latest time for checkout. The hotel should really improve on that as that spoils the whole calm experience of Taiping.

Don't bother with the hotel food, just head on to the usual suspects - Yut Sun, Nagaria, Bismillah / Ansari Cendol and many other places suggested by other reviewers.

The lake is also breathtaking, it makes Taiping a simple yet very relaxing place for a break.

Room Tip: book for premier room to get the lake view. if you come in a family you definitely need the suite as...

The location of this hotel is strategic, facing the lake garden, and about only 5 minutes to zoo taiping and maxwell hill. make sure to be as early as you can if you want to go up the hill as early 7.30AM. Room is okay and breakfast is average as i was there in the last minute decision, so can't choose any other rooms type.
Don't forget to try the yong tau fu at the food court near the fire brigade station. McDonalds also located in the Lake Garden area.
