Eat. Sleep. Relax. Ipoh (Part I) – WEIL Hotel
Booked our flight with Firefly and it brought us to yet another rustic-looking place in Malaysia to explore, Ipoh!
Seeing that we want to be near to Ipoh’s Old and New Town, we booked our stay with WEIL Hotel which is situated at quite a good location of Ipoh and with a connected shopping centre of Ipoh Parade, living here was actually quite convenient. Since it was still early for us to check in to our rooms, we left our luggage with the concierge before we head over to the shopping centre to roam a bit and settled our lunch there before heading until the time for our check-in.
I wouldn’t say the service at WEIL Hotel was not good since the service from the concierge was great. The service we got from the previous lady serving us at the reception before our check-in time was alright but sadly when we were there to receive our key-card for check-in, am not sure was it ’cause there was a lapse in the booking system since apparently the person serving us could not find our reservation even though we were only there to collect our key-card. When they somehow resolved the problem, the key-card issued to us were faulty and we had to head back to the reception (which has a long long long long queue) to get it solved. So by this time, you can say that we were both quite unhappy with this chain of events.
Lucky for them, the room actually brightens up our mood a bit once we were finally in it.
For a place in Mayalsia that is famous for its White Coffee, we were surprised that they didn’t have White Coffee for us! 🙁
The bathroom was so beautiful with those lovely vertical white subway tiles on it! Not forgetting the wooden look is exactly our style. 🙂
Our regular guest stars saying HI from Ipoh! I forgot to take a photo of both Cony and Brown together though. 🙁
Overall if you’re looking for a hotel that is conveniently located near to Ipoh’s Old and New Town, I will say that the WEIL Hotel is pretty much quite a safe location to stay at. Not forgetting with Ipoh Parade just beside it, there are options to watch a movie or karaoke late in the night since the streets of Ipoh is pretty much quite dark at night with a lack of lamp posts (as compared to Singapore) hence it was safer for us to hang out at the shopping centre instead. 😀
