It was a reasonably priced stay, clean beds and toilet, fully functional tv and air-condition. Only thing is to watch out for mosquitoes in the room. They can even make-up your room when you are out during the day.

I don't know if the restaurant underneath has a trip advisor page or not, but if you are in this restaurant you must give it a try. From the outside it doesn't look anything special, but you have to try their park and rice, it's great. It's so cheap but the food is good!!

Rooms on second floor but no lift. Wifi available but poor unless you went to the reception area on first floor. Our Rooms had river views which...

This has to be the cheapest hotel I have ever stayed in. The cost was about 15 USD a night for a superior room with 3USD deposit. Rooms were incredibly basic with no facilities except for an old noisy air conditioner. No breakfast. Buildings very very tired and scruffy. But the sheets and room was clean and the staff were...

Great value in this city/town hotel. Well run and clean. There is wifi, but reception's a bit spotty. Recommended for those keen to explore Kuala Lipis' historical attractions. We did a photo essay on the town here: http://my.news.yahoo.com/a-heritage-tour-of-kuala-lipis-024700129.html?page=all

We are so disappointed with the service of this hotel. We checked into this hotel last Chinese New Year 2013. When we woke early the very next morning to use the washroom, THERE WAS NO WATER!! We ran down to complain to the front desk downstairs and found a crowd of angry guests complaining about the water cuts. The hotel...

Good, basic, clean, cheap, with river view. 50RM per night. Excellent value. (there is a second hotel with the same name probably in the same ownership)

I had earlier intended to check in at the Centrepoint Hotel but I noticed that Centrepoint is a bit run down and I began to have second thoughts. There was this new hotel just across the road, named Jelai and I decided to check it out. It was a real surprise . . the room is just adequate, not too...
