welcomed so warm by the staffs , the boutique decors was so beautiful, we took so many pics, but the floor was sticky , other than that it is so worth for a good sleep.The staff were so friendly and presenting. Location is quite good as all the places went to visit is actually very near . overall a good stay for the price.

Went to stay a night from our long trip up down south and thought this was a good deal. About 10mins away from the new Hollywood restaurant and it’s pretty decent size bed and bathroom with cute boutique-y furnitures. Unfortunately the bathroom smells from drainage, that should def be fixed together with the stains on the stool / chair provided with the room. Also, please ensure all bedsheets / pillow cases are washed and clean, basically put on the new ones for each guest. Thank you.

We stay in Ipoh quite often and we tried Merton just once and for sure it is the last time. I do not understand how this property can have a 8.3 in booking.com I would not rate it higher than a 6 or less.

Originally booking to stay for a number of nights, we ended up checking out within a day. Why? We were sold by the aesthetically pleasing lobby, but quickly found the rooms and service unfortunately did not reflect the same. - The Aircon would not cool the room despite being on all night - it felt the control panel was a deceptive tool; - the room was not clean - there was dust all over the skirting boards, table, lamps, bathroom floor - then when I opened the curtain, a big dust cloud spread across the room; - the linen was not clean and smelt of the body odour of the previous guests. I had to convince the cleaners to change it; - The bathroom floor was poorly built, tilting at the opposite end, so would flood with stagnant water within minutes; - despite us and the hotel staff spraying insect repellent throughout the night, we were bitten multiple times; - we paid for a window/view, but there was no insulation to keep the noise from the roads out, we hardly slept. Having stayed in multiple hostels, boutique hotels and homestays across Asia, this was honestly a 2 star service across the board. From hygiene, cleanliness, to hesitation from the staff recognising the issues we faced, sadly, this hotel failed to hit the mark. The hotel eventually recognised our concerns the next morning and provided us with a refund for the following unused nights- but this took an entire morning and was a confusing process given we had booked through a well-known third party website, the hotel had put a damage deposit on our card and paid the tourist tax in cash. Built for the aesthetically pleasing insta-crowds - if you seek a clean, comfortable stay away from home (that actually matches the decor of the lobby) this place ain't it.

I stayed there last week 16th till 17th oct after i saw the nice pictures of this hotel. to my disappointment, the experience is like going back in time. I went into a beautiful looking lobby , nice corridor and into a room that looks like has not done it's renovation. Paid RM130. highlighted to the receptionist. No action/suggestion given. I didn't push much as I was too tired and just need a sleep. The sound from outside and the aircond is very loud ( my room with window) no breakfast option were given. Nothing tells me to come back to this hotel again.
