When looking for hotel to book, the first criteria is location. This hotel is located away from down town and not too far away from down town. So, it is a rather quiet place. Very good.
Next, was the offer of room rate, which is attractive. This pass.
So, went ahead to book the dates of stay in Ipoh for this hotel.
Upon arrive, the outlook of the hotel was rather impressive, very spacious lobby. When doing the check in, the front desk worker are foreigners. So, English and explanation is not very good. Even trying hard to explain in Bahasa Malaysia.
Was told that there is no TV channels to watch. Reason given was the government has switched from analog to digital. So, the hotel were not equipped with the digital decoder. Well, this announcement has been made some time ago, and should be prepared to carry out the installation and testing. Not willing to spend money?
Okay, without TV to watch is fine. Most ot the time would either be out and running about or just need the bed to sleep.
When given the room key, it is the metal key. After getting into the lift to get to the room, the varendah on the floor was rather run down. There is self ironing service, where the ironing board cloth is rather burnt.
Open the room door, and the room is rather musty. Uneven floor and torn and worn carpet. The windows are nailed and locked, therefore it could not be open. The window glass were tinted and the tint film is having blisters. Hence, not a clear view looking out from the room.
The bed is okay. But the bathroom is very narrow and tight.The shower when turn on, will wet the toilet bowl and the wash basin.
There is no cupboard, it is just a narrow spaced nailed together with planks to serve as a cupboard.
Generally the room is very narrow too. Overall the room is very run down.
There is no stool, no desk. So, have to use a bedside drawer to put the luggage and sitting on the bed to work with a very small and narrow coffee table.
Wifi is very weak and intermittent.
