Lovely Hotel and Welcoming Staff

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 22, 2008

This would be the last time I would consult Trip Advisor for Hotel Review, there were 15 reviews on this hotel on Trip Advisor and all of them were negative about the hotel. My friend with whom and whose sister I had travelled to Ipoh, had called the local contacts and all of them had said: Syuen is the best of the lot in Ipoh. I was very apprehensive but decided to follow the nose of a local rather than foreigners writing about a hotel in Ipoh.. Imagine my surpirse when the hotel turned out to be very aggreable, nice facilities, large rooms and good beds and great views over to the mountains. I dont know why the reviewers had given such bad reviews one after another. My local friend said: the europeans may wish to complaint about things which the locals may not pay attention to, such as the state of the carpet, lack of bathroom amenities ..
In any case, i checked into my room and it was ample and nice and with great view.. the rooms of my friends, were even nicer with much better minimalist decoration and good views.
Here is to you, Trip Advisor, You will not be hearing from you, except to say that I shall not be consulting you ever again. the last time i consulted them was about a hotel in Merida which turned out to be anything but what the description told us to expect..

Unique Quality: the hotel is said to be 15-20 years old, pseudo colonial in architecture. large lobby and good rooms. the staff is pleasant enough. there are shops within the lobby belonging to various other parties.
very close to eating and dining options and also to old town.. as well as the new since the division is rther arbitrary
