I was expecting much more for my money. The room was tiny and noisy. The bed was a board and impossible to sleep on. Ipoh is great and I will return but not to this hotel. The pictures are very misleading. We waited 12 minutes to be seen to at reception desipite 2 members of staff being there. One on an iPad!! Breakfast was a tasteless and small baguette. The room too small to accommodate 2 travel bags and guests. The balcony unsafe and over the cafe below so noise into the room started at 7am and finished at 10pm. I didn't sleep a wink due to the unforgiving mattress. Never again.

when it rains the roof leaks and the buckets come out. Staff are friendly enough but not adequately trained to meet customer requirements, The Attic room that I stayed in was small, had no cupboards for your clothes, and you have to contend with pigeons waking you up in the morning. Too pricey and overrated hotel although the location was excellent
Faridah A. Families with older children Malaysia, December 13, 2014

Boutique Hotel but not a 4 Star

Interior Design, Location, Customer Service
5.7
This hotel will delight those who appreciate boutique, unique and custom made interior design. Personally I do, but I as well expect a level of comfort from a 4 Star rated hotel. The bed was extremely firm to the point of being hard like wood, there was inadequate natural light designed to be let into the room because there were no windows in the patio room I was staying in, instead there are is a single wooden floor to ceiling height shutter doors - you could only chose to open the shutter slits lightly and get a slither of sunlight, or open up the whole shutter door and let all the light (including loads of insects) into your room. The inclusive breakfast selection was poor. Only a small selection of 4 sandwiches for breakfast. However the coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice was tasty. Location wise it's right in the middle of Old Town, so no issues there. I recommend you stay somewhere else for comfort but please do stay here for the wow factor of how they must have pain stakingly refurbushed and redesigned the whole place. It has been beautifully restored.

Antique-styled rooms are very good. Staff are friendly. But,abover all things, hotel charge is quite expensive.
Peter F. Solo travelers Switzerland, November 23, 2014
Worst bed I have ever slept in in Malaysia

Location, extremely friendly and helpful staff, colonial hotel building
6.3
Very friendly welcome by helpful staff. Funny art decorations of hotel restaurant and room. Very simple but working facilities in the room, apart from TV which did not work (weather conditions?). I have not really slept more than a couple of hours as the bed was rather a covered board on which one could find a 3cm thick foam rubber! Maybe it was just my bed but I really recommend the owner of the hotel to change this situation. Otherwise I would like to thank the very friendly reception and restaurant staff for their kind help.
