Hotel Review: Le Metrotel of Ipoh, Malaysia

Staying in stylish, chic and trendy boutique hotel has always been part of my travel wishlist, provided still within my budget. Initially before going to Ipoh, I plan to stay in M Boutique Hotel Ipoh but unfortunately it couldn't fit in three of us. And after looked into few factors, we finally chosen to stay in Le Metrotel of Ipoh Town.

#1: Beautifully decorated in the lobby of Le Metrotel

Upon check-in, we were served by a staff with the name of Jessy and she requested a refundable security deposit of RM50. She was indeed friendly and helpful by providing us guide and info about what to eat around the vicinity. However, as it was still early, we're not allowed to check it yet but Jessy allowed us to place all our luggages first.

#3: Stylish lamp

One of the main factors we chosen this hotel is for its strategic and excellent location. The hotel is located right in the middle of city center surrounded by many famous eateries such as salted chicken, popular Lou Wong Bean Sprout Chicken, Funny Mountain Tao Foo Fah, Foh San Dim Sum and more. Beside eateries, there are even quite number of shops selling confectionery and infamous White Coffee. You will totally be spoilt with variety of choices.

#5: Television LCD/plasma screen

#6: Complimentary drinking water with coffee and tea making facility

The only downside of this hotel is the size of the room which was pretty small to fit in into three people. Quite surprisingly the size of the room is almost similar to most of the hotels I stayed in Singapore. Perhaps the room is most suitable for two pax instead of three.

#7: Clean bathroom with powerful rain shower

#8: So vintage

Free Wifi internet connection within each and every of the room and for the hotel guests with car, there is a free parking space provided. Although the room was basic but it was fairly comfortable and adequate.

All in all, ignore the size of the room, I could say this hotel is definitely an ideal place of stay for travellers seeking cheap, comfort and convenience in Ipoh town.

Tip:
If you are light sleeper, try to request room facing away the main road instead.

Date Stayed: 28 May - 29 May 2015 (1 night)
Rate We Paid :  RM138.00 per night for a triple room without breakfast (Booked via Agoda.com)
