“basic room but very clean!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

furama is a budget hotel but is very clean (especially for malaysia standard).
the room is basic but with a/c, tv, coffee+tea and very good wifi.
every floor has a free hot/cold water dispenser...
there is a nice reading corner and nice and cozy all.
the 2 receptionists are really helpful, smiling and friendly...i really love them
the lake is just 200mt behind the hotel and the food market 150mt...
i suggest to choose this nice hotel.

A small and clean room for a reasonable price, with fully functioning aircond.Parking space is adequate in front of the hotel.There are plenty of eateries nearby and the lake gardens and maxwell hill is a short drive away.There are also reading materials and water dispensers available on each floor.

Clean and confortable small hotel, quiet and well situated with friendly staff. Family room could acccomodate 5 for a reasonable price. Moved there after fleeing the lakeview merah resort and did not regret the move. Several pleasant restaurants in the vicinity and a 7/11 ( no breakfast).

This is overall a good location and surrounding with lot of good and cheap foods. No complain on the hotel park. But maybe provide some Taiping attraction point and info corner will boast the local tourism industry.

The guys at the front desk were very helpful. We enjoyed walking around town and had different dishes near the central market and just around the corner near the lake. The room was a good size with air con. The bathroom was a bit basic, with a water heater that didn't really heat and a toilet connection which resulted in water spurting out of the back.

Generally though good value. We had breakfast at the Flemington, 5 minutes walk away. They have a reasonable european effort for 12RMB.

Hotel Furama was great. If you need somewhere to stay at this location do not hesitate with this place.

Immacukately clean throughout. amazing beds and stunning room for its price range.

Amenities as described.

Nice interior design with plenty of art pieces to look at.

This place is only a breakfast offering short of a 3 start property.

Room Tip: room 201 was great

From the outside it looks like a sleazy, cheap hotel but you'll be surprised with the inside. For RM105 on public holiday you get all these:
1) spacious room with comfortable bed
2) practical bathroom
3) lcd tv with 15 Astro channels
4) water dispenser facility, no worry about making drinks
5) no cafe but many food outlets within walking distance
6) most importantly, clean room

Room Tip: Ask for a newly refurbished room (103).
