Check in fast, room size quite big, window with side alley (no view).
Wifi connection lousy, can't log in yet every time have to key in long username. Ask staff why can't connect, staff say iPhone login very troublesome
She thought me the trick but keep disconnected, reconnect need to key in long username again. Give up.

Water pot is different type, more like a pot to cook instant noodle.
Pillow too soft, can't sleep well. Bed still comfortable. Sunday morning got flee market, very noisy can't sleep.

The good point is location good, on check in, staff will give you a print out map for foodie. 5-10 mins walking distance to Chef Fatt dim sum (local favourite).

Good access to sightseeing spots. Price is very reasonable and very friendly staffs. I stayed in other hotel which was nice, but in terms of location & price, this hotel is much more value for money. Highly recommend!

We have stayed many many times at the French hotel but things have continued to drop a notch each time we stay.

The service at the front desk continues to be unfriendly, in particular one guy who seldome smiles and looks glum most of the time. The female staff are better.

The hotel room is of average standard, clean and comfortable, but each time we visit, we are missing something. This time, it was the safe that could not work because of a low battery fault, had to call for service. Does anyone check the room. Other than that, all electrical, shower (good pressure) work well.

You would that there would be a welcome gift or something after staying there many times over the last 10 yr, but no. Obvioiusly their customer database is ineffective.

Room tip: Get a high floor room, and a room facing the side building, it is less noisy that a street facing room.

Overall the hotel stay was good. It is situated walking distance from the old town and walking distance from the central part (night market area) of the town. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
A suggestion would be fix the method of logging into the wifi which is a bit convoluted but it’s a good signal once it’s up and running.

For the price, the rooms were clean with comfortable beds. The hotel is located in the heart of Ipoh’s downtown with plenty of food options. As Ipoh is known for its street food, this hotel caters to that strength. They have a wonderful map of all the great restaurants close by( some within walking distance) . There is a 7-11 next door to the hotel and a KFC for those with a craving for good old fried chicken after binging on Ipoh street food. The hotel is located in a rather quiet part of town. Especially at night, the streets outside were dead silent after 8 pm. Despite that , we felt very safe throughout our stay here. This was the first hotel I have encountered with an actual built in alarm on our hotel room door. The room also came with a safe. This was our 2nd visit to this hotel after a 7 year break. Amazingly the hotel has stood the test of time.
