Ipoh 2012 - Kinta Waterfront Hotel
Being a sleepy old town which is still off the mainstream tourist beaten path, Ipoh is understandably lacking in tourist infrastructure. Hotels are still few and far in between - and mainly limited to nondescript business-oriented budget establishments. There is however an ambitious new development in town called the Kinta Waterfront Hotel. This is quite a large investment with a hotel tower and a serviced apartment block next door. It is right next to the Kinta River which runs through Ipoh Town.
The design is nothing to write home about, but it is new and clean and has all the amenities you would expect in a modern hotel.
The rooms are large and spacious.
The most redeeming quality of this hotel has got to be the view. Being one of the tallest buildings in Ipoh, it offers magnificent views of the Ipoh surroundings, and the beautiful limestone hills in the near distance.
