Nice place
The rooms were clean, the owner friendly; the surroundings quiet; many small amenities like free tea and coffee, filtered drinking water. The only significant complaint was that the hot-water heater only put out lukewarm water. Good value for the money.

Value 4 Money for Overnight Stay, Hassle Free
Booked this place about 2 weeks in advanced for Chinese New Year. Arrived 15th Feb with Hubby and my Mom. Easy to find. 5 mins away from the City (by car) First impression: It's pretty much situated in a residential area. Modest for the price you pay. Quiet and away from the all the buzz. Mr. Yusuf (the owner) was friendly, welcoming and nice. When we arrived, the previous guest already checked out so Mr. Yusuf and his assistant was in the midst of cleaning up the place. He owned 2 lots of houses (1 unit was a corner lot and the other was next to it). We paid for the Deluxe Room (MYR20 difference from standard room). Always asked for Deluxe Room cos it's cleaner, smells nicer and it's the corner lot (more light and space). We took 2 rooms with an attached bathroom. We practically owned the whole house although there are other guests. There were 4 rooms upstairs and 1 room downstairs. He has 'Astro' (Malaysian's Cable Services) and he still provides a TV in each room (basic channels - not astro). All rooms are air conditioned. There are towels, mini bar soaps, water heater and even WIFI services! Imagine for the price you pay away from the city. This is indeed a good value for money. The only downturn is that there's no access to public transport. But we have our cars, so it was literally 5 mins away from the city. I will definitely come back and stay here instead of some fancy hotel. We had a good short break for this Chinese New Year.

very friendly owner
All the hotels around Batu Gajah were either fully booked or expensive and City Homestay looked like the last resort. But we were surprised when we booked into a large and spacious room. It was well prepared. Mr Yusuf was a very friendly character and what is in the kitchen is yours, so to say. The rooms has just been repainted but the job wasn't professional enough. We were allowed use of the computer and that saves us a lot of time, not to mention cost, of checking our mails. Stayed there for three glorious nights. Thanks Mr Yusuf.

5-Star facilities for a 2-star price!
We arrived from Paris without knowing anything about this hotel as it is not listed in Tripadvisor before. We tried to go to Casuarina, Heritage, HIllcity and Syuen but they are fully booked because of PC Fair 2007 in Ipoh. Luckily for us, we found an advertisement about this hotel in Gopeng Bus Station, and the reception confirmed us the availability of the rooms. We didn't quite used to a Homestay before, so we didn't expect too much. And as it is around 2 km from city center, we couldnt just go walk there. Room provided are very comfortable. Rooms are clean, with a lot of facilities provided. Queen size beds, big bathroom attached, large screen TV, air-conditioned, it's all what we can find in big-name hotels for twice less to pay! (We paid only 30 Euros for that room.) Besides, the manager is very kind to provide transport to/from Ipoh bus/train station. We don't have any airport around here unfortunately. Pro : 5-star treatment in a what we call a budget hotel, transport to/from bus station provided. Balcony offers great views. Con : Location of the hotel quite far from city center. So we have to walk around 100m to main road everytime to get taxis.

Pourquoi pas..
Endroit très propre,pas cher mais pour notre cas sans fenêtre et avec des murs pas très épais (voisins très bruyants).passons,... la station de bus est a 200m donc pratique mais le centre ville est vraiment éloigné (plus de 45min a pied..)sinon c'est un bon rapport qualité prix mais pour être plus tranquille vaut peut être mieux se rapprocher du centre si vous n êtes pas motorisé
