City Homestay
Ranked #59 of 63 Hotels in Ipoh
Reviewed 15 August 2007

We arrived from Paris without knowing anything about this hotel as it is not listed in Tripadvisor before. We tried to go to Casuarina, Heritage, HIllcity and Syuen but they are fully booked because of PC Fair 2007 in Ipoh.

Luckily for us, we found an advertisement about this hotel in Gopeng Bus Station, and the reception confirmed us the availability of the rooms. We didn't quite used to a Homestay before, so we didn't expect too much. And as it is around 2 km from city center, we couldnt just go walk there.

Room provided are very comfortable. Rooms are clean, with a lot of facilities provided. Queen size beds, big bathroom attached, large screen TV, air-conditioned, it's all what we can find in big-name hotels for twice less to pay! (We paid only 30 Euros for that room.)

Besides, the manager is very kind to provide transport to/from Ipoh bus/train station. We don't have any airport around here unfortunately.

Pro : 5-star treatment in a what we call a budget hotel, transport to/from bus station provided. Balcony offers great views.

Con : Location of the hotel quite far from city center. So we have to walk around 100m to main road everytime to get taxis.
