It is still a great place to stay in terms of the location, price of room and friendliness of staff.
The rooms are comfortable, clean & safe. Felt very homely staying here. Highly recommend this place. Call to book a spot.

Spent 3 days in Le Metrotel during our visit to ipoh, and it was awesome. The cleanliness, tidiness and services are top notch. Highly recommended place to stay. The location is convenient with many restaurants nearby, and the prices during our stay are great and reasonable.

Highly recommended!

We spent only one night in Le Metrotel during our 3 weeks long trip in Malaysia, but booking a room here was the best decision we could make. The staff is very helpful and the rooms are perfectly clean even if you compare them to the European standards. Good WIFI was very important for us, and properly worked, we didn't have any problems with it. You can find food hawker centres very near, so the location is also perfect.

But the added value is definitely the hospitality we felt. If we had any questions the owners of the hotel were there and tried to help, or even accompanied us to find a great place to try the famous white coffee. We had a great conversation about the present Malaysian society, the history of the white coffee companies in Ipoh, and many other interesting topics.
We really felt as we had visited a relative in Ipoh, that is the way how a good hotel should work.

Thank you for your kind hospitality again :)

The room is not big but clean. The staff are helpful and considerable.They upgrade our room from standard room to deluxe room when they saw we got disabled person.The hotel located in strategic location where they are very near to many hawker centre in morning and many popular shop are within minute nearby. Here got provided car park but limited,should request for hotel reserved the car park before check in.
房间不大,但胜在清洁。这里的员工很友善,看见我父亲行动不方便,主动把我们的房间升级了。他的位置就位于怡保名吃如老黄、安记、德记毗邻,很方便。早餐也有很多餐馆可以选择。虽然有提供停车场,但位置有限。如果可能,登入钱要求他们保留停车位

Ipoh isn't exactly a glitzy city and I certainly wasn't expecting anything fancy. To be honest, I originally picked Le Metrotel because it was affordable and newly built. It ended up being far more than I expected! I originally booked for two nights and ended up at Le Metrotel for my entire stay in Ipoh, nearly ten nights!

The location of Le Metrotel is fantastic. It's within walking distance to many famous restaurants and seeing as how it's very difficult to function without a car in Ipoh, the location itself already is a huge plus. Not that many people walk in Ipoh but I managed to walk quite a few times, with my parents, to a few restaurants for supper.

The establishment itself was very clean and orderly. The rooms were nice and tidy, very basic but seeing as how I only needed a place to shower and sleep, it was more than adequate. The hair dryer does not come with the room and must be borrowed but that's easily remedied by asking at the front desk. The bathrooms are clean, albeit a bit wet, and the linens were always stain-less and in pristine condition.

All in all, I had a very nice stay at the hotel and must say that the staff were very friendly. The hotel has two parking spots directly in front of the hotel that's allocated for guests and a huge parking lot in the park that's locked at all times. I stayed in a triple occupancy room with my parents and was more than satisfied with it. Honestly, on my next trip back to Ipoh, Le Metrotel will be my hotel of choice to stay at if they manage to maintain everything as well as when I stayed there!

I must also give a little shout out to Jessy, a very sweet receptionist. She was always friendly and greeted my family with smiles. She was personable and very welcoming!
