You may have read my earlier review (2016) of the the Ipoh Downtown Hotel. Recently at the last minute I had to go back to Ipoh, an unexpected visit during the 'CNY' the Chinese New Year when everyone in Malaysia seems to be traveling and everything is either super crowded or completely booked out. All this could have meant some...

I suppose being in this little town of Ipoh, one would not even bother with eating food at the hotel. However, having had stayed at this hotel for a company event meant the food would be provided by the hotel, and boy, did it make me wish I never ate it. Nevertheless, the location of this small hotel is incomparable....

Hotel is a typical downtown hotel - beds were alright, thought a bit creaky. Quality of pillow and duvet was so-so. Bathroom had the bare essentials (though an extra toilet roll or 2 would be better). Rooms were definitely clean and service was pleasant. Location was definitely central, within walking distance to the dim sum places (just behind the hotel)...

Located very centrally but could be a little difficult to find as the hotel front is quite small. The entrance is in between Maybank and Shell petrol kiosk. Room is clean with enough space to walk. Hotel staff not very friendly. Note that you will need to pay extra (RM60 for 2 hours) if you request for late checkout. Beyond...
