Delightful stay ”

location, friendly staff and decor

Ipoh town is famous for its food and the Sarong Paloh is the perfect place to stay in Ipoh for indulging and savoring some of the best eating places Ipoh has to offer. All within walking distance. I am not all that familiar with Ipoh town and I picked this hotel because of its high rating and its reasonable pricing. However, my family and I were pleasantly surprised that when it comes to food, many of Ipoh's famous eating outlets are just a stone throw away including favorites like Lou Wong Chicken Rice and Nam Heong Coffee Shop. Parking can be an issue during weekends and holiday season so it is a huge plus to be able to just leave the car at the hotel car park and just take a stroll. The hotel itself is a renovated heritage building and the owners have taken a lot of care to retain its original architecture and structure. We stayed in the Kingfisher room which is a loft style room with a nook under the stairs which my son absolutely adored. The renovation and decor serves to bring guests back in time. Modern amenities like a modern and well equipped bathroom are well hidden but readily available for the comfort of guests. There are no restaurants within the premise but just right next to the hotel is a restaurant that is also owned by the same owners as the hotel. With so much that Ipoh has to offer, we did not try out the restaurant but it does look very inviting. Guests are entitled to a discount at the restaurant. The hotel staff are very friendly and took a lot of time to share with my family on where to eat including places that are privy to the locals.

Lovely, charming stay”

Was in Ipoh for work and for leisure with the family. This is my first ever boutique hotel stay and i must say i was not disappointed. Beautiful hotel, with huge rooms with a garden courtyard which was just lovely. Walking distance to some good restaurants and cafes around, and as the hotel is in the Little India district, we couldnt resist braving the slight rain to get to Sri Ananda Bhavan which is about three blocks away. Our slight challenge was parking as we had to move our car around a bit as parking was tight. So we used Grab car to get around town so parking was less than an issue. Would definitely consider staying at Sarang Paloh for our next visit to Ipoh.

Awesome Heritage Experience”

We loved our stay at Saran Paloh Heritage Stay! We had booked the Great TIT Room, which was a huge really nicely furbished room with an amazing bathroom and a very comfortable bed. We definitely regret to only have booked for a 1-night-stay, because the city is really lovely and also some tours in the surrounding areas are possible. The Heritage Stay does not offer breakfast but within 2 minutes walking distance you can find many places and little coffee shops. Definitely worth it and still a hidden gem.

Intriguing Heritage Stay”

Sarang Paloh is a heritage hotel where rooms are built without disturbing the original structure of the building so I found it very cool for our room (Olive Tree Pipit) housed in the old OCBC Bank building. Our room was well furnished and amenities well taken care of. I also like the local touch of serving Ipoh White Coffee and Chinese Tea complete with a pot and cups! The service staff was really friendly and helpful even showing me where they source the tea leaves (which is just a few blocks away). Our only gripe was we did not get our extra bath towel upon request and when I called again later at night, there was only the guard taking care of the place. Other than that, I would definitely come back again!

Rustic abode in the heart of Ipoh old town”

If you are looking for a place that is at the heart of the eating action in Ipoh, you would love Sarang Paloh. Restored from a couple of old shop houses, it is a charming place that merges the old with the comforts of the new. Popular eating spots like Lou Wong chicken rice and the original Old Town White Coffee are just a short walk away. Parking is at a converted shop lot across the street and crossing the busy road can be a challenge. Also, you may be asked to move your car to accommodate other guests due to the tight parking space.

My husband and I recently spent one night at Sarang Paloh, but I would have happily spent many more. The location in old town Ipoh is highly convenient, and the building itself could not be more charming - so much artistry in every detail of the design of the rooms and ambience. The owner and staff are also extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

Beautifully converted shophouse boutique hotel, amazingly helpful staff”

Alex the manager was particularly helpful in answering all my questions and making sure my stay was a wonderful one and that I was able to get to all the places I needed to get to. The shophouse is one of those in Old Town Ipoh on Sultan Iskandar Road, perfect location to check out heritage museums (the Han Chin Pet Soo which looks into Ipoh's tin mining industry and the Hakka clan association is a MUST), bookstores (one was housed in a bank vault!) and great places to taste Ipoh cuisine. The shophouse's rooms are lovely and spacious, amazingly decorated to give that Malayan colonial feel and for such an old house, the amenities were completely top notch, everything running like a top 5 star hotel. There is no better place to stay in Ipoh, IMHO!

Heritage Experience”

The hotel location is near to many tourist attractions and cafes in the old town. The room we stayed is big and it is hiding from the main road. Thus, it is quiet and cozy. The room and the small garden outside are so clean till I can walk barefoot around. The owner still maintaining the heritage interior by adding beautiful green landscaping around which makes the hotel looks great. However, I couldn't find any fridge in my room. It is a bit disappointing when we wished to enjoy some chilled beverage after the hot day walking around in the town. There is no lift service in this heritage building , so just make sure you are not bringing any big and heavy bags. We were impressed to get free parking at the hotel in this area where it helped us to solve a big headache to find parking around the Ipoh old town area.

EXCELLENT!”

A nice quaint heritage hotel in Ipoh town (old town) with impeccable service. Credit must be given to the staff – they are friendly, helpful, and informative. Special mention to Ms Marianne (I hope I got her name right!) who took the trouble to cross over to the parking lot to help us with our bags when we arrived. Please do take note that the parking for guests is in another shot lot opposite the hotel. However, please be caution when crossing the road as it’s on a very busy road with high volume of traffic. Kudos the owner of the property in taking good care in keeping the building in its original stage, but made a very innovative and beautiful refurbishment of the building. The housekeeping department did an excellent job in keeping the hotel rooms and its surrounding squeaky-clean and tidy. The room that we stayed was spacious enough to accommodate 4 adults in 2 King size beds, (it may put in a max of 6 pax) and not to mention, a very nice, big bathroom with 2 showers! The beds are very comfy too. I must say we really had a very good and memorable stay in this hotel, and shall return to stay here again for my future trips to Ipoh. Highly recommended.

Perfect Place to Stay in Ipoh”

I spent a weekend in Ipoh taking in the sights and food around town. This hotel was the perfect base for that, being easy walking distance to every notable cafe and hawker stall, the river, train station, and so on. The hotel itself is extremely comfortable and, to my knowledge, the only true heritage hotel in town. A beautiful old building with comfortable, stylish rooms and fast wifi-- try to get one facing the street, maybe a bit loud but high ceilings and big windows. The owner is also very nice. A great stay!

Pure heritage”

The hotel lived up to its name, pure heritage style in the oldtown part of Ipoh. The room is sizeable, with modern aircond and entertainment. But what attracts me most was the heritage/antique furniture and restored interior. It certainly a place I will stay again for a relaxing short break. The hotel is just a short walk to the Concubine market. At night it gets a bit quiet but there are some nice, small cafes nearby. The staff are marvellous.

We had a lovely stay at Sarang Paloh. The staff was friendly, the kopitiam next door convenient and the location walking distance to most places we wanted to explore.

A Sanctuary In The City”

We stayed in Sarang Paloh’s Great Tit Room and we were amazed at how big & clean it is! Both me & my husband enjoyed our stay here while on a mini holiday in Ipoh. Conveniently located nearby the busiest tourist area such as the Concubine Lane; this is a must stay sanctuary in the heart of Ipoh. We will definitely be back again for our next trip!

Beautifully restored Hotel, Good location”

Walking distance to Ipoh Heritage tourist location. The parking lot opposite the hotel was a valuable point in a busy location. Staff was very knowledgable and helpful. Newly renovated with good water pressure and water was adequately hot. Loved the unique design of every room. Coffee house beside the hotel serves wonderful coffee and belongs to the same owners.

Homely boutique hotel with character”

What a homely boutique hotel with character! I love how they thoughtfully and tastefully preserved the building. We stayed in "the great tit" room and loved how spacious and stylish it was. However do note that there is no lift (duh) so it may not be suitable for older folks (or uh, younger folks with weak knees). Also, they only provide a 2-in-1 shampoo and body wash which I found too fragrant for my liking, so you might wanna bring your own toiletries. Also, the bed is quite hard - if you prefer softer beds. The staff were helpful enough to receive a package for me even before my arrival. Oh and the location is great - it's walking distance to lots of great places for food and drinks, but quiet enough to have a good rest. Definitely one of the more unique accomm options in Ipoh!

Good to stay here”

I love the heritage concept served at Sarang Paloh. We can show to our children what is the heritage means. Parking also provided, easy to us as a parent with young children.

It’s a great experience to stay in a heritage building.”

The staffs of reception are very nice and kind. Rooms have good atmosphere because the hotel is renovated of old building. The hotel located in old town area of Ipoh, so there are a lot of heritage buildings. And, there is a very nice bar(Tiga bar) near the hotel.
