Reviewed 27 September 2016 via mobile

Location is good,walking distance to town centre n a few good restaurants around.Classify as Hotel & Spa, but actually a budget hotel but expensive.Cheapest room at rm98.00 per night ( usd25 ) has no windows.Bed is comfortable,room is small but has electric kettle, slippers.Stay away from room no.2009, 2 nd floor, i killed 4 mosquitoes in my 2 days stay, the shower has no hot water n the pipe system rattled at nights n eerie sounds from neighbouring rooms.The card door faulty several times.

Stayed: September 2016, travelled solo

Location is good. Food outlets are everywhere within walking distance. The Batu Burok Beach is merely 2 minutes drive away. Parking is provided. Room is comfortable. AC is cold and in working order. They provide iron & board to each room. Shower pressure with hot & cold water is excellent. HK service is good. Room is clean however my only suggestion is to change the floor carpet in the hallway. It looks dull and dirty. Wifi is free and connection is good

The hotel is within a block of shops with Ming Star at the other end. Free parking is available behind the hotel and you have to get into the hotel through the back door. Dont come back too late as it is quite dark at the car park. Room is normal size and so does the bathroom. The hotel is quite old but at least it is clean. Free wifi is provided but breakfast is not included. The hotel is not very far from the centre of the city if you have a car to travel. One advantage of this room is the bed especially the blanket was very comfortable

We were there for a night to transit to Redang Island on the next morning.
It is very convenient and easy access using Waze. There is car park provided at the back of hotel. There is another Ming Paragon at the other end which is newer. And this is the place where they served breakfast. Breakfast is ala carte menu with good selection provided.
The room that I booked was family room with 1 king ad 2 single beds, 2 bathrooms. Value for money!

Room Tip: Value for money !

After having the worst hotel experience on Perhentian, Ming Paragon was a blessing! Perfect if you are looking for an affordable short stay at a comfortable place. Nice bed, clean room, fantastic shower and great location. No stairs to climb or dodgy hallways. Lots of food options near by, and a pleasant walk to Pasar Payang and the bus station. Thank you for the good night sleep.
