Excellent”
The Family cabin was a great space for families with young children. The staff was very friendly and helpful even gave suggestions on where to go. The area of the hotel was nice, lots of food but none were halal. If you are looking for accommodation with halal eateries nearby better stay in another area.

Great setting but walls thin as paper”
If you love everything that shouts "green and rustic" This dainty hotel is for you. They have interested artworks made of natural materials - stones, wood and loads of plants. For rooms - the walls are so thin, we were woken up by others when they returned pass midnight - to the extend that we knew that they were dragging the chair, walking from left side of the room to the right, having a conversation etc. And because the room is so small - big enough for a queen size bed a small side table - there is no way to run. Mosquitoes kept us awake too - we had to put at least 5-6 patches. My gf had more than 5 bites on her face. Bathroom looks good but as there is no ventilation (nor tissue box), expect the staleness of air to company you through your stay. Drinking water - kudos to the glass bottles - but the refill container outside at the container... I am not sure if the many ants on top was supposed to be added protein to our drinking water.

Good for a Quick Getaway in Ipoh”
The hotel is right smack in the middle of all the old town Ipoh action. Good location, lovely design and convenient.

Worst hotel mattress”
The hotel mattress awfully uncomfortable. It's too thin, 2 inch sponge mattress that each time you lay down you can feel bedframe wood base. I had back pain the next morning. I would think twice if I want to recommend to my friend. This is sad, they have good interior decor, good location & good service but the mattress is sucks!

Great Location in Old Town, Bad Contact Details and Cleanliness ”
It's right around the corner from great eats like Sun Yun Loong, Kong Heng and Thean Chun, but on the first night trying to get hold of the right contact person was a nightmare. Then after I checked in, I discovered my new roomate, a cockroach in the bathroom. For the price I was paying, it just isn't worth the charm of the place and the design. I would be better off staying in one of those modern hotels instead.

Satisfactory stay with lots of surprises around the hotel.”
When first walked into the hotel, we were impressed by the welcoming-aesthetic feel of the artistic and cultural design of the building. Surprisingly, every little corner of the hotel/cafe has not failed to convert its "old town" elements into a much elevated modern style. Overall, the place is a great therapeutic getaway as it gives you a comfortable environment to stay in. I particularly fond of the wood-hangers on the wall to save space of a wardrobe. Hope the water heater could work a little better. The room is considerably small but my family and I had enjoyed squeezing into this minimal space of comfort and fun. Breakfast includes the sandwiches and coffee/tea . Location is good as You can find lots of local food with walking distance. If you are photographer you shouldn't hv missed out this venue. We really had a wonderful & memorable stay here.
