Shanghai Hotel: Simple, nice and neat's hotel

I had a pleasant stay at this quite pleasant town. Life here is relaxing, simple with warm local people, especially the owner of the hotel, showing me how to get to few attraction places - the beauty of this peaceful town and where to get the nice and cheap food. The food here is really cheap and delicious, especially the famous "Lao Wang Ngah Chai Kai" (Ipoh chicken ho fan) and also the famous 'White coffee" in town, etc. It's a good place to stop by after a visit to K.L. and on the way to North of Malaysia, Penang.

Located at the centre of the city. Simple, nice and neat. Very near to a biggest hawker centre in the city. Very near to the famous food like "Ipoh Chicken Ho fan" (Ipoh's chicken noodle).

Swiss-Garden Holiday Apartment-Damai Laut: Affordable "Home-style" Apartment for Families

The apartments are not far from the other accommodation (hotel) under the branch of Swiss Garden International. There is regular shuttle service to the hotel where dining and entertainment are more complete.
.

Catch a glimpse of monkeys along journey to this place. Breath-taking holiday experience at Damai Laut, (off Lumut / Pangkor). The beach is overlooking Pangkor Island.

5 Stars hotel: 5 Stars hotel

Piture is Heritage Hotel, the location is Tambun Road (if not mistaken), its on the same road driving towards Tambun Caves, the opposite way is to Ipoh city centre. This hotel is quite big, I supposed 5 star lah. I'm not here to promote free for hotels, I just want let tourists know there are some big hotels in Ipoh.

Low budget hotel: Low budget hotel

Low budget hotels are really abundant in the city centre, tourists looking for budget hotels, only need to take a bus to Ipoh, then take a cab to somewhere nearby Lou Wong Taugeh Chicken which is right in the city centre. I saw so many old cheap hotels, and have once stayed in a cheap hotel cost RM45, huge room with bathroom attached. Inside the hotel reception, you can see something 'unusual' but you just don't ask too much, just smile and go into your room, and you will be happy.

The Kinta Riverfront Hotel.: Good central location.

This is how we got to the hotel from the train station. There are several ways. First, cross the main road which is called Club Road or Jalan Panglima Gantang Wahab (there is a green man crossing if you go left at the main road). Walk along Station Road, which is also called Jalan Dato Maharajalela. At the start of this road the magistrates court will be on your left, the town hall on your right. Continue straight to Belfield Road, also called Jalan Sultan Yussuf. At Jalan Sultan Yussuf go left. You will walk past the padang. Cross the road at the end of the padang. you will see St Michael's Institution and the Indian Mosque, go right. Walk past St Michael's Primary School. Cross the road, the hotel is on your right on the river.

Check in was quick and friendly. We were given a room on the sixteenth floor. You must use your keycard in the lift to access your room. As soon as you put the keycard in, the floor will automatically light up.

Our room was fine, though for a fairly new hotel the standard of workmanship could have been better. The bed was comfortable, though we only had one pillow each and I like to have two.

We had tea/coffee making facilities and a room safe. We also had a fridge and four free bottles of mineral water daily. For our first two nights our room was very quiet at night. On the third night we had very noisy neighbours.

On the first night we ate in the Tin Ore Bistro and Lounge at the hotel. This is the hotel bar/nightclub. The food was good, drink prices were reasonable, service was friendly and there was live music.

After that we went for a walk along the river which is lined with artificial trees which are lit up at night. It is very pretty and there were lots of people cycling and walking along the river. There is a convenience store in the suites part of the Kinta Riverfront Hotel. There was also one on the other side of the river. There were bars, cafes, restaurants here.

Breakfast was served in the Palong Coffee House on the fourth floor. It was fairly good. I like Asian breakfasts so I was on nasi lemak or vegetable curry for breakfast. My husband prefers western. He would have freshly cooked eggs from the egg man, sausage, beef bacon. There were also cereals, a salad bar, bread, cheese, cold meat. you help yourself to tea, coffee or juices.

There was a swimming pool and gym (open till 10pm) on the fifth floor. The pool was very good and we generally had it to ourselves. It was open till 8pm. One side of the pool was made of glass so you look strange as you swim as if your head and body are not joined together.

Check out was efficient and friendly, too.

Our main complaint about the hotel was that the free wi-fi did not work for the first two days of our stay. My husband was very annoyed about this. It was working on the day we left.

All the sights of the old town are easy to walk to from this hotel. We would happily stay here again.
