An unusual hotel in Ipoh, M Boutique is a tribute to the traditional Malaysian shop with a boutique arts outlet on the ground floor along with a café and restaurant. It’s a quirky and comfortable place from which to explore the local area with a style aptly described by the owners as “urban vintage”.
The rooms are decorated with different themes on different levels reflecting the history and culture of Malaysia. Do note some lack of windows but we will make sure to request the right room if it’s important to you. The Family Suites are well-appointed with separate rooms for sleeping with interconnecting doors. There is no swimming pool, but the hotel offers a gym, restaurant and coffee shop to provide plenty of things to do within the property.
Service is attentive and friendly throughout, and the food and fresh juices in the restaurant are worthy of mention. Rooms are intelligently designed throughout to make maximum use of the available space and feature quality beds and excellent small bathrooms.
M Boutique is a good option in Ipoh. The quirky, modernist decor may not be to everyone’s taste, but its carefully considered design provides a characterful base with solid creature comforts and warm service from which to explore Ipoh.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
