We stayed in family king room. 120 ringgit per night plus 10 ringgit per night foreigner tax. 50 ringgit deposit. 1 king bed and 1 single bed. Shower only, soap & toilet dispenser on wall. Hairdryer, fan and air conditioner. There’s a cover for the window which blocks out the light for sleeping. Hallway has water filter, kettle, ironing board and spare toilet. Some rooms here are dorm rooms. There’s a sign out front of hotel for walk ins, pay 3 nights and get 4th night free. Bicycles for hire and drinks sold in lobby.
This hotel is in new town. There are some food options in old town in the streets surrounding concubine lane. If you are here on a Tuesday try the night market called pasar malam taman Ipoh timur - large night market. About 10 ringgit grab ride. There’s a Tesco next door with free wifi if you don’t have data, to order a grab back.
Walked through gerbang malam approximately 7.15pm on Wednesday night, market stalls were only beginning to set up. Restaurants around there were full. Next night we walked through approximately 9.30pm, all stalls were up. Also try Tong Sui Kai for food. Usual local dishes and dessert. Remember you can only sit in front of the stalls that you will be ordering from. I have done a separate review about this place. There’s also a food court near there.
