The station looks antique, but only basic functions available there. No air-conditioner and limited sitting places provided.

Although i love the building with its unique design i just wish that the facilities would be improved especially the ticketing counters, look so outdated & dull. But i must say, the staff is quite friendly & fast. It has a unique cafe inside though...More

A great location for a view of colonial architecture. well preserved for those who can appreciate. across the road from this building is the Ipoh Townhall and Ipoh High Court. Both of which are also well preserved architectures of the past.

Beautiful building, very well maintained... Nice area around with fountains and green park... Pity that you couldn't see the platform without train ticket... Be aware when across the road in front... No zebra, and busy road... There are snack shops and free wc...

Ipoh Railway Station is a fascinating old building. The modern additions have been done without destroying the historical aspect of the building, and while it is somewhat run-down and damaged from decades of "improvements", you can easily imagine the place in the 1920's, with rickshaws...More

A place to buy tickets....improved outlook over the years. Service might not be so good but just walk around and take a look at the building inside and out and you might supersede this flaw with the beautiful structure and scenic view.
