We took a last minute jaunt to Ipoh from KL so didn't have time to research properly. Shangg was pretty nice. Basic but you'd expect it at the price. Clean, working air con and with water/towels etc. Bed was so comfy I slept like a baby! Only downside was location. It's a bit out of the centre and can only... More

On my first day I saw alot of hair on the comforter but was said that they forgot ti clean up the room. I guess they might be giving the room up for hourly basis to other curtomers. Carpet definitely needs refurbishment. Other than that I love the atmosphere there and a very warm & friendly staff Mr Moorthy welcomed... More

Luckily we booked only 1 night stay at this hotel. No doubt the hotel is clean, the atmosphere tends to be gloomy. In fact, I think we were the only guest around there....or maybe 2 or 3 rooms occupied in the hotel. I guess that it was probably we checked in on a Sunday. If one has to look for... More

We stayed one night in this hotel and would probably not recommend this hotel for more than one night as it is a bit far from the center. For one night it was perfect, spacious room clean sheets and a cheap price.

Last stayed with the hotel in October 2011. It has been a lapse of @2.5 years since last visit. Room remained spacious and clean. Amenities were sufficient for the category of its 'class'. Cleanliness overall was comparable to those 3 or 4 Stars hotel anywhere. The standard has not diminished though the hotel has a change of owner.

It's a budget property in Ipoh with friendly staff and basic amenities. The location is quite central and good, but the hotel is a little bit hard to find.

“If you're a light sleeper, try getting a room in the middle/rear. If not, switch beds so you're on the inside of the room. The bed nearer to the window facing the main road can be a bit noisy.”
