I decided to book this hotel for my family Ipoh trip after gone through some basic review about the location, room condition and service. Since this is a new hotel, i have to set my GPS to Eastern hotel which is few blocks away along the same road. Locating the hotel is not a problem since it is along the roadside but parking is a bit difficult, found no parking for the hotel and have to park in a nearby parking area beside LIDO building and dragged my luggage to the hotel. Later only i found out that the hotel actually give RM5 parking ticket when you check-in to park at the place i parked earlier.
The lobby looks very modern and stylist, with nice sofa for guest to rest. Since this is a budget hotel, there is no hotel restaurant for breakfast and no facility like gym. Nevertheless, the room is very beautiful, modern type and clean, thought it is a bit small compared to normal hotel. Room equipped with flat screen tv and glossy glass type bath room. Our initial room was 502 which overlook the street and roadside but later changed to 504 because the room air condition not working. Complaint was attended promptly and the manager change the room for us immediately once they found the air con was not working. The only negative point i have for the room is they don;t have hook or indoor lock for us to lock the room from inside, and once the air con service personnnel just open the door after calling at the door, it was totally no privacy and security at all, especially at night if sleeping alone. We have to use our luggage bag to block the door from inside before we sleep at night.
Apart from that, all others thing are excellent. Room, corridor, lift and lobby all looks very clean and no unpeasant smell as the hotel have the non-smoking policy. Sleeping has no problem at all, didn;t hear any noise even the hotel is along the road side. Eating is also very convenient as there is 7-11 that open 24 hours just beside, few blocks away there is KFC, pizza hut and Macdonald. Further down was the famous chicken rice restaurant and night market place at night. Service of the hotel is excellent, I really thanks the indian staff that remind me to park my car further away on saturday night when i come back because there will be sunday morning market the next day. Thanks to him, else i won't be able to drive my car out on Sunday morning as the area is full of stalls selling second hand stuffs.
