Legend Inn
Ranked #6 of 16 Hotels in Taiping
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I paid RM 165 for a single family room for 4 and was shocked at the huge size of the room and all the freebies we got at the price. There was bottled water and coffee for 4, a large flat-screen LCD, soap, shampoo, huge closet, laundry bags, stationery pad and envelopes. They told us at reception that there were double beds but when we got into the rooms, they were two KING-SIZED beds!

The room was spotlessly clean and the TV was attached to a vertical panel by the wall that had backlighting--very tasteful. There was a great view of the mountains out the window too. It was so great we decided to book a second night to explore Taiping further and go home a day late.

The only complaint I had was that all the windows all had a narrow slit on one side and there was almost zero soundproofing from the noise outside (Legend is located in a very busy downtown area).

But despite this, we all loved this hotel and will definitely go back.

Stayed here last year June with my family. Can't really remember how much we paid but it was peak period and it was around RM100. Must say it is pretty reasonable for a city ctr Hotel. We didn't have a reservation and the hotel reception was very helpful & check-in was a breeze. The rooms & bathroom was very clean...and that is our #1 priority in booking any hotel. The room was very spacious with a nice big comfortable bed. Our room had no view to scream about though.
The next day we requested for a late checkout as we wanted to continue our sightseeing & wanted to freshen up before we head back home and they were very obliging.
This hotel is in a very good location..the Causal Market is walking distance....this is where you get all the hawker style yummy food. There are many shops and a supermarket nearby too. So no chance you would go to bed hungry :-)
All other tourist attractions are a short drive away. Would definitely stay here again.

I was about to stay at Flemington, but the hotel is quite far from the city central. Legend Inn is a one of the oldest hotel in Taiping, although there were many newest hotels in Taiping, Legend Inn is the most well-placed hotel.. the location is superb, near street hawkers, seven eleven, train station, bus terminal, hospital and banks. The room is super-big but the furniture were kinda old and it gave you a "scary" feeling when first time enter the room. The bathroom was also very comfortable with its large shower and closet.

Checking in was a breeze. Staff friendly and will get info required if they are unfamiliar with what was requested. Room just as expected. . . clean and with basic needs. What more can I say. I enjoyed and it is worth it. Dennis Schokman.

This hotel is well located just across the bus station and walking distance from several restaurants and shops.We simply rang up to book and they confirmed over the phone, check in was easy We booked a superior room which was surprisingly spacious, with a large bay window which gave a magnificient view of the mountains which form a backdrop to the town.
The beds were comfortable, and the breakfast adequate, though not great.
Only, avoid the restaurant, the food was pedestrian at best.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountains.

Stayed for 1 night during our stopover at Taiping. The hotel is located strategically at the town center, plenty parking available, despite our late arrival. The room was clean and spacious, likewise for the bathroom. It comes with flat screen TV, free WIFI, 2 bottles of complementary mineral water, and complementary daily newspapers (which we don't get it from most hotels nowadays). The service at reception was spot on and helpful, they have always been answering the calls within 3 rings.

Will definitely consider staying at the same hotel again for next visit to Taiping.

We drove to this hotel to stay for one night. We are pleased to find plenty of carparks provided by the Hotel around its compound. The room is big & spacious. We had a kingsize bed . Most important is a good clean room,superb shower water pressure ,and efficient wifi signal . It has simple bathroom amenities and complimentary coffee packs for 2 persons. A 32 inches LCD Tv is great with clear reception of some local channels, ESPN Sport & Discovery. Hotel location is near shops, a local market and eatery centre . The hotel cafe served some great cuisine too. Its a good hotel to stay if we are back next time to Taiping for meetings.

Room Tip: If at all possible (if you are a light sleeper) do not choose the room facing the Mosque.
