Stayed overnight at this property and yes for locals, Ipoh is always a great stop for foodies! We went in a group of friends and needed an apartment to chill out as we had plenty to catch up on which a hotel would not be suitable. The unit is a bit misleading from the photos posted on the website as it is actually situated in quite a busy road and you may miss it if you whizzed pass the road. Parking is available but limited.
Check in was quick and everything was minimalistic even down to the receptionist. Only one person manning the place but no problems at all as our unit was ready. My friends were impressed with the simple yet comfortable set-up. The unit is fully air-conditioned with 3 bedrooms which can sleep 8 pax (2 bedrooms with 1 double & 1 single bed and 1 master bedroom with a double bed & bathroom attached). Another bathroom was outside for sharing by the other 2 bedrooms. Dining table for 4 pax is availble with 4 chairs and 4 sets of crockery. Just wondering why 4 sets when the unit is meant for 8?
All amenities are available e.g. toiletries, towels, flat screen tv, microwave oven, good sized fridge, kettle and a sink for washing. Please note that cooking is not allowed hence no cooking utensils provided or stove. But who needs to cook in Ipoh anyway? And a plus point, wifi is free but speed could be improved.
Location of this property is fantastic and is short drive away from the city centre and the famous square of eateries, biscuits, pomelos, salted chicken & smoked duck haven. If without a car, I believe you can get by as there are some eateries opposite the apartment as well.
All in all, we were happy with this property and it is really value for money and a much cheaper option than a hotel. It is also very suitable for bigger families as all would be under 1 roof in their 3 bedroom units. They have smaller units (2 bedrooms & studios) if you don't need such a big unit.
Some negatives: The unit needs a bit of upgrade in terms of the bathrooms. The soap dispensers are like falling off the wall. Lack of hanging racks to put towels and clothes. Also the set up of the bathroom could be improved as once someone showers, the whole bathroom floor and toilet seats will be wet. Not sure how this can be overcome as the bathroom is not big.
