We confirmed the trip in very last minute so others hotel in city have been fully booked. This is our first time stayed here. The price for double room really cheap Rm69 per night. The hotel was very old fashion and run down but clean is ok. Recommend for short stay. We stayed 1 night. Still considered very worth the price because it is hardly find this kind of price in Ipoh down town. We just walking 5 min to arrive to the famous restaurant nearby. Stayed on August 2020.
Although generally the accommodation is more expensive than the rest of south east Asia the rooms were clean and comfortable with good aircon so we were happy. The location is good and the staff are friendly
Last year from the pictures by Booking.Com I decided to book the Caspian Hotel which was supposedly looking ok by its images and photos. The price was low and its location was fairly good. However, when my husband and I reached there Ipoh Bus Station in the night, no taxi driver could know by its English name, Caspian Hotel. Two taxi drivers took us both to the wrong hotel. It was quite frightening. And thankfully it was near midnight, a helpful man came along and told the 3rd taxi driver it was SIN KOK PING translated into Cantonese and we reached there safely.
It's a rather cheap hotel considering I'm sharing the hotel fees with my friend. The rooms are spacious enough and clean too. Another thing is the hotel do have hot water so don't have to worry about it. The receptionist was a great guy and would recommend us places to go and eat. Overall great experience here.
An old premise but properly maintained, clean lobby and clean room. If you have some appreciation for buildings, you can observe fine workmanship on the old mosaic flooring and the spacious stairway. There is no lift in this old building but the location is a great one with all fancy eateries of walking distances, a great location for exploring the city on foot. The premise is quite, thus, allowing one to have a good night's rest. Very helpful and considerate staff to help arrange for rooms at 1st floor when I stayed with elderly and children.
