Negative Reviews

Outside the city centre

Outside the city centre, this hotel’s location isn’t ideal for everyone. Guests mention that it is located in a residential area around two miles from the heart of Ipoh and this isn’t very convenient for seeing the sights and attractions in the area. However, those guests with the use of a car find this less of an issue. Guests also feel there aren’t as many eating options near the hotel as they would like.

Sometimes no hot water

At times, guests were disappointed to discover that there was no hot water when they wanted a shower. They found this surprising given the overall quality of the accommodation.

Cleaning can be erratic

On occasion, guests would have liked to have seen a higher standard of cleaning in the rooms.
