“Clean & Modern Hotel”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

Is a very nice hotel with good services, they called us to confirm what time we want to check-in & make sure i know the direction . We stayed in deluxe king, the room was surprisingly amazing for a 3 star hotel , Room is nicely renovated with modern and cozy touch, clean & comfortable Bed , Clean bathroom, nice tiles, powerful rain shower . I luv their 32" LCD TV .

Famous and popular restaurants and cafes are within walking distance from hotel .

Room Tip: Not necessary to choose a room with window, Our Room with window have nothing much to see .

Two friends and I stayed here for one night while attending a friend's wedding. It was clean and the staff friendly and efficient. We booked a Deluxe Twin room and added on a mattress (the spare mattress cost RM40, which we thought was a little expensive, but it was sufficiently comfy). We arrived later than expected, but called ahead to inform them and request that the spare mattress be put into the room before we arrived (we arrived about 11 at night). Check in was quick and painless. There is a 24hr convenience store (7-11) just downstairs.

The French Hotel is a new hotel so the decor and furnishings are modern and minimalist. One might also say rustic!
The hotel is located in a relatively poor and tired area of Ipoh so would suggest also looking at hotels near to Greentown (also known as Old Town). This is the posher part of town which has more to offer (in the way restaurants and bars) to tourists.
We upgraded from a room without a view as this meant a room without windows, so it you like sunlight, I suggest you go for a room with a view - although you wont get much of a view in the traditional sense.
The French bistro (Josephine Cafe & Bistro) on Level 1 is a nice (French themed) place for lunch & tea and offers a selection of luxurious snacks and some gift items. Worth a visit.
Don't expect a 5 star hotel and service, this is more like an up market Formula 1 hotel which is ubiquitous in France.
Overall, pleased with the hotel, but would of picked a hotel in a better location in hindsight.

Stayed in the deluxe king, massive bed, very clean room, lovely rainfall shower, lcd tv. Centrally located in ipoh. And only cost 70sgd! It is a small hotel, so don't expect a pool or gym. But what it has it does very well and receptionist very helpful.

The French Hotel in Ipoh was very retro and cute. The lobby was small although very quaint. It had a little touch of '60s feel with a Chinese ambiance. The old lady who was cleaning the lobby had so small a space to clean, that she mopped and wiped forever, until the whole place was spick and span. For a small hotel, there was free wifi which was very important for my husband and I. The people at the reception area were very friendly and helpful. I failed to ask the girl's name but one of them has visited my country, the Philippines, and she said she loved cornicks. Good thing I brought some and gave it to her. The room we stayed in was also very clean and spacious, it had no frills, but all in all it was value for money.

I decided to try French Hotel after reading its good reviews, here. But upon arrival, I almost screamed, "Oh no! A hotel in mid-town shoplot? It must've been a stopover for hourly sexual exploits!" Finding its one-n-only lift (elevator) brought me to its backdoor office n maintenance area.

Once i got into d room, the 'nightmare' continues. The rooms were small n crampy. Window view? Ew!

Any good news? A/con works marvelously, the bath fixtures are nice, LCD TV with Astro, huge n clean bed.

Best news? The price.

Room Tip: Not a hotel for families.

The French Hotel in historic Ipoh is a super place to stay in this wonderful little city.

The rooms are comfortable, the wifi works, the hotel is clean, and the beds provide a great nights sleep.

The best part of the hotel are the great front desk staff who give you great tips about where to eat within five minutes walk, from fantastic bean sprout Chicken alongside wonderful Indian style dishes. Right beside the hotel is a 7-11, with a Watsons right across the street.

Parking is virtually next door to the hotel and is safe.

I highly recommend this hotel.
