All are good about the hotel. Booked using agoda, I got better price. ”

Given breakfast, coffee/tea and a set of toast, simple but very satisfying, as the were prepared with heartfelt. Felt very happy during that Ipoh trip especially when I fulfilled my wish to bring my hildhood friend, Yee Hoong. Felt even happier when I got the chance to know Allain, a tourist from France who temporarily works in the hotel to support his stays here. He is friendly, easy going person. Will come and stay again at Abby to see more of Ipoh beauties, and to taste the delicacies there. Antique morning market, good eateries and tourist spots etc. are just a walking distance from the hotel.

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!

Strategically located and fits the bill”

It's not a luxury hotel. It's an cozy & comfortable budget hotel that's located at the heart of the Old Town - this shall enable covering the Mural Art Lanes and all the heritage buildings by walk. If the requirement is to find a decent place to Lodge for a few days, while most time will be spent in visiting places in Ipoh, then this should be the best option. Comes with a bare minimum breakfast (couple of bread slices and coffee/tea) but they plan to increase options I reckon. They've a nice piano in their lobby, few books to read and a small shop got a quick bite / drink. Fully covered with WiFi and rooms come with TV and AC. There is no parking on the premises. There are paid slots outside so pls be sure to grab parking tokens from 7/11 or happy marts. Overall it was a pleasant stay and will definitely consider future stays as well.

Good Place to Stay... =)”

Located in the center town of Ipoh, at the main road. The view itself definitely nice, situated just beside the river. You can relax at the rooftop to enjoy the scene. The room was clean and comfortable with an affordable price. The receptionist also friendly. Don't have to worry if you want to find some snacks or drinks, you can get it at the downstairs at the right price.

went over my expectations”

We got a private ensuite room with a king size bed and boy were we in for a surprise with the size of the room!! Mum had more than enough floor space to do her yoga exercise in the morning. Room WAS however, infested with ants so we had to be careful with storing the biscuits we bought from the souvenir shops. Bedsheets do come out easily when you sleep but I wasnt too bothered by it. Location was SUPERB! It is located just between the Old Town and the New town area. So we had the option of exploring both towns on foot should we choose to. We walked to the old town to hunt for mural painting on foot and managed to finish the entire hunt and be back in the hotel in less than an hour. Nice distance, not too much to walk. Also walked over to eat just to avoid having to try parking space.

Location just what I need, awesome.”

The hotel just beyond my expectation. The staff really helpful and kind. I requested to do early check-in but no room available. So they just asked me to wait until 2 pm in rooftop cafe. Rooftop cafe just simple, but the view quite good. If you need a hotel that near Ipoh railway station and mural art area just stay here. My suggestion if you go to this hotel from railway station, just take the way(besides) near City hall, not direct from Sultan Iskandar street. It's easier for you if you with a luggage. :). If I back to Ipoh, I will stay here definitely. :)

WYH from M'sia”

It's a nice stay in Abby Hotel by the River Town as the budget hotel is located at the strategic location. To me, there are 2 items need to be improved:- 1) The fan in the room is quite dusty. Staff have to include this in the cleaning list as well. 2) The electronic kettle is not provided in the room. Hotel only provides 1 kettle for each floor. It will be good if it is provided for each room.

Budget & clean hotel. Will stay again!”

Location: ideal between old & new town Ipoh (walking distance) Reception staff were very efficient & friendly. Sorry didn't get their names. Quick also for check-in. Facilities: Toiletries basic only with soap dispenser. Spacious bathroom with good water pressure Room: we took the triple sharing. Quite spacious to walk around. Room has 3 single mattresses. I like their bed frame concept. TV, aircon, wall fan, dressing table with kettle and glasses. Hallway has a water dispenser. Room comes with basic breakfast like toast and coffee. Breakfast at rooftop with beautiful town view They also have a little rooftop bar to chill around. The hotel gave us a good vibe and chill place to stay. Nearby has good Chinese eateries at night just behind the hotel. They also have dorms. Easy access for Grab. I will definitely stay again.

Value for 1 night stay n great experience”

Strategic location,very near to eall painting area, free parking if you parked at their own lot (only 1 lot), no parking issue at night cz commercial shop closed at night but you will have issue in getting car park during business hours. Love their hotel concept (i.e. volunteers program for backpackers to work as receptionis / preparing breakfast in exchange for 1 free night stay), bring room, strong air pressure (enjoy shower very much). Love their Rooftop Breakfast, simple breakfast like toasts, coffee / tea prepared by volunteers (3 types of jam provided). Enjoy the breakfast at the same time the view & sunny day! (Breakfast start late at 9am - 11am, i'm so glad cz I don't wake up early) Cons: the hotel is next to road side, if you are a light sleeper, you may face issue in go to bed due to the speeding car / motorcycle. Sound proof is not good (that's why they also offer ear plugs on sale).

This hotel was well signposted as it is off the main street. The room was comfortable which was fine and the staff sorted the situation quickly. Bus stop on the main road nearby makes it easy to get anywhere including Ipoh train station. Room was reasonably spacious and looked cleaned, Bed was comfortable. Shared toilets/shower was acceptable, Staff reasonably friendly.

It's located in Jalan Sultan Iskandar, about 10-minute walk to Lou Wong chicken rice and the night market. Some cafes and food stalls are nearby. It's next to the small river, and the bridge is a nice place to sit and relax at night for chats with friends. Parking is available next to the hotel but limited. We booked the Family room (3rd floor, with a lift) with attached bathroom, 3 single beds with a socket and reading light next to each bed (cool!). The room is clean, with air-cond, TV, shower heater and pot+glasses. No window, although it says "river view" for the room… Hot water and ironing table are in the corridor. Rooftop has tables and chairs, a windy place to relax (a cafe is under renovation). Staff was ok, hardly interacted with guests. Overall a pleasant stay!

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.

Từ nhà ga xa lửa Ipoh đi bộ thẳng con đường Iskandar là đến khách sạn (15 phút đi bộ). Khách sạn sạch sẽ, nội thất được, tuy nhiên giường khá mềm, không có máy sấy tóc trong phòng. Ở mỗi tầng có ấm đun nước để sử dụng chung. Bữa sáng gồm 2 lát bánh mì nướng và mứt ngon, nhưng phục vụ trễ quá (9h30 - 11h). Nước nóng trong vòi của phòng số 31 không đủ nóng. From Ipoh railway station to Abby Hotel, it takes around 15 mins by walking along Jalan Iskandar. Clean hotel, fine facilities, but the bed's matress is soft. No have hair-dryer in the room. The water is not hot enough while take a bath. Breakfast includes toasts, jam is very good. But I hope the hotel will change the serving time sooner (6.30 - 9.30 am) instead of 9.30 - 11.00 am (very late). The price is a little high.

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.

Housekeeping by volunteers ”

Hotel Abby is greatly located, easily accessible to both new and old towns. It’s approx 10 minutes (walking) from the train station. We stayed for 4 nights but Abby never had the room clean up, on check out we chatted with another guests to know that housekeeping was done by volunteers who stayed free at the hotel. Anyway the location is the selling point, whoever wants a short visit to Ipoh could choose.
