Enjoyable Stay”

Abby by the River was the perfect place for us - a little off the main tourist trail, but close enough to dart inland out throughout the day. The room was spacious and comfortable. The mattress was very cozy (though the pillows were not). The staff were helpful. The breakfast was minimal, but the town has some wonderful breakfast places. One thing we appreciated the most was the filtered water dispensers on each floor. No bottled water! How refreshing!

The location is great, just right in the centre of the old town. Very easy to find places to eat nearby. Had some problem with the hot shower that was not working, reported to the front desk girl. She was quite helpful though there was not much that she could do since she was not familiar with the machine thing and the maintenance guy was not there at the moment. However, we had a very good and pleasant stay here. Will stay here again if were in Ipoh.

It's kinda of hostel type. Got myself a private room. Bare minimum and there is no table. Bathroom is big though an most important thing is clean. Hotel just beside the main road. Not too noisy as they put up a board type of barrier on the window. Kind of like second window. The hotel provide simple breakfast of toast and bread on the rooftop. Nice place to hang out. Nothing to complaint here. Will booked again the place if I ever come to Ipoh.

I had my 1st experience of maintenance worker coming into my room here, I supposed he wasn't informed that it's occupied. On my 2nd day, I was locked out of my room and had to renew the card downstairs, probably some miscommunication on my staying duration. The pros being a walking distance to tourist attraction.
