“Room above the Malaysian standards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 29, 2012

This was probably the best room we were able to get in this price range in Malaysia. Beautiful ensuite and very spacious, not the typical asian size. We were a bit suprised by the attitude of reception staff when first thing after arrrival (at around 7PM) we were told that we are an hour late and "we should have called" and got a bit of a lecture "but next time, you have to call". Also, they tried to tell us the room rate is actually 102 MYR instead 79 MYR which we had been confirmed before. We did not seem to happy about it so the rate magically changed to 82MYR. However, as said above, we liked the room a lot.The hotel is not far from the Zoo which we recommend (15 minute by foot) and close to the main street.

well presented place- very clean with elegant dark wood furniture-very nice mature staff who were very useful in giving tourist tips. in addition they had a quick wifi free of charge available in their rooms- i think its a family run buisness which reflects in the genuine atmosphere and hospitality- it was also 5 minutes to the lake which was quite open and pretty - the locals take their health seriously as everyone was jogging -made me feel overweight

I am a Taiping resident and have helped to book Furama Hotel for many overseas and Malaysian friends. They have all praised the cleanliness and excellent location of Furama especially the 5 minutes walk to two food courts and the beautiful Taiping Lake Gardens.
My latest guests are two Senior relatives from Singapore who stayed at a ground floor room for two nights. There are no lifts in this hotel. When I made the booking of a standard room, I paid a deposit of RM80. Somehow there was a mix up and the relative paid RM160 for two nights. A few days later I got a phone call from Furama to have my RM80 reimbursed and an apology for the mix-up! That is first class honesty for you!

Very good value for money. Our room was cleaned and the sheets and towels changed daily. No restaurant but within five minutes walk of two food centres; also the beautiful Taiping Lake Gardens. Friendly, helpful staff.
