The rooms were quite ok but the breakfast was quite a nightmare for us. Food was rather cold and the watermelons had already turned bad. Western breakfast very limited choice.The staff at the counter were very helpful.

Room tip: I would like to take this column to thank Joey who has been very helpful since the day I made the reservations until the day we left Ipoh.

Hello ccleems,

The M Boutique Family is counting to three, sighing ; "Thanks for choosing our sMall urban vintage hoMe and for leaving us a review on TripAdvisor!". We are happy that you liked the overall ambiance in our whimsical sMall-ish hoMe and have noted your comments; glad that everything went smoothly with the exception of breakfast.Though our Restaurants are leased out to other operators, we will always try to improve collectively based on your feedback, be it positive or negative, as we benchmark our performance right here on TripAdvisor.

As the M Boutique Family is singing counting from three to one, we are still grateful that you had loved your experience in our hoMe. Perhaps you should venture to try our other personalities like M Boutique Station 18 (The Cool Jazzy One), M Boutique Kampar (The Studious Punk) or M Roof Hotel & Residences (The Corporate Bigwig)?

Cheers,

Lloyd Gan

Awesome decor, with retro style feel, especially like to chill in the old town coffee, or the bar/restaurant here (name I've forgotten sorry). You cannot help but fall in love with the deco, so definitely hats off to the designers, especially the little small details you will be amazed. The rooms are wonderful in how they have managed to squeeze in features and make use of the limited space (check out my photos). However the small size of the rooms is also what I dislike about this hotel, the rooms are just too small to be comfortable, my feet were hanging off the end of the bed as the bed was so short. They also vary in facilities, we booked two rooms and our parent's room didn't even have a desk. In our room we had desk, fridge, safe, flat screen tv. In the toilet there was hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel, toothbrush, sanitary bag, shower cap. They gave an extension cable with 6 USB charging slots which was a nice touch, a kettle with coffee making facilities (but no tea). Complimentary Bottled water was provided, 2 small, 1 big. Free parking and great WiFi was provided. For breakfast there were 2 choices, European buffet or oriental buffet in the old town white coffee shop. Both have very few options and hence are a disappointment. They don't seem to bother to replenish the food either. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful, thank you for making our stay just bit more enjoyable! Would I recommend this hotel? I think it's worth staying one night to admire the deco if u are travelling alone and are just staying one night in ipoh and have very very very little luggage (i.e. U have one carry on suitcase or just a backpack), but if u are staying more than one night, or have children, older people, or luggage, i would give this a miss, it's just too small to be comfortable and there are cheaper more comfortable places nearby.

Hello chanshuikay,

The M Boutique Family is happy to be happy (eh? we must be high since Canada legalized recreations marijuana) ; "Thanks for choosing our sMall urban vintage hoMe and for leaving us a review on TripAdvisor!". We are happy that you liked the overall ambiance in our whimsical sMall-ish hoMe and have noted your comments; yes, we poured our blood sweat and tears into this home of ours, and since we opened 5 years ago, the addition of the 6 USB charging extension was a new addition since we are a lifestyle hotel ...... however, we don't quite understand the comments on the short bed, as this is the normal Asian sized beds you will find anywhere in Malaysia, we didn't make it any shorter. We do know of the Western Sizes (which is longer and wider a little) but during our inception, the Project team did not account for this. True, M Boutique Ipoh is really whiMsical, and your comments show our quirks; which we have grown accustomed to. Despite saying that, we will always try to improve based on you feedback, be it positive or negative, as we benchmark our performance right here on TripAdvisor.

As the M Boutique Family is singing, "I am he as you are he as you are me", we are still grateful that you had loved your experience in our hoMe. Perhaps you should venture to try our other personalities like M Boutique Station 18 (The Cool Jazzy One), M Boutique Kampar (The Studious Punk) or M Roof Hotel & Residences (The Corporate Bigwig)?

Spent a night at this hotel and we wished we had more night. My girlfriends definitely will come back. It is clean, comfortable and good service. What more can you asked from a small hotel. We spent most of our time in the rooms (we booked connecting room) chitchatting as we were so comfortable in the rooms.

Hello Nora H,

The M Boutique Family is Twisting and Shouting, screaming at The Beatles; "Thanks for choosing our sMall urban vintage hoMe and for leaving us a review on TripAdvisor!". We are happy that you liked the overall ambiance in our whimsical sMall-ish hoMe and have noted your comments; YES! We are SMALL! However, we love you as you loved the experience here in our hoMe ... glad to know that you had put down the mobile phones and tables for a comfy chit chat with each other .... we are glad that he human aspect has returned and we had played a part in that .... though it may sound insignificant to many, we are believers that the good old human touch is the best ...... and I most probably will be chided for writing this..... Anyhow, though it may appear that we cut and paste our replies over the course of 5 years, we actually bother to read every single review and I still have typos and grammar errors which I just realised. Yes, I too am human and prone to mistakes, laziness, etc, but we will soldier on in improving based on your feedback, be it positive or negative, as we benchmark our performance right here on TripAdvisor.

As the M Boutique Family listens to the last song of The Beatles in our playlist, we are still grateful that you had loved your experience in our hoMe. Perhaps you should venture to try our other personalities like M Boutique Station 18 (The Cool Jazzy One), M Boutique Kampar (The Studious Punk) or M Roof Hotel & Residences (The Corporate Bigwig)?

Hello Mohd Suhail K,

The M Boutique Family is singing "Hey Jude", waving lighters in the air; "Thanks for choosing our sMall urban vintage hoMe and for leaving us a review on TripAdvisor!". We are happy that you liked the overall ambiance in our whimsical sMall-ish hoMe and have noted your comments; just glad that you had enjoyed your stay with us and yes we had poured our blood, sweat and tears into our hoMe, and it's almost impossible for us to be consistent as we are a Human Intensive Industry. Well, over the years, we have not given up and will continue to chip away at the boulders while trying to improve based on your feedback, be it positive or negative, as we benchmark our performance right here on TripAdvisor.

As the M Boutique Family wishes for a sunny day, we are still grateful that you had loved your experience in our hoMe. Perhaps you should venture to try our other personalities like M Boutique Station 18 (The Cool Jazzy One), M Boutique Kampar (The Studious Punk) or M Roof Hotel & Residences (The Corporate Bigwig)?

Although room is not spacious but the design idea had made us impressed with the space saving design and not let going the minimum needs. There is also many surprises when look carefully on the bed site table.

Hello Fui Yee L,

The M Boutique Family is listening to Paul belt out "Let It Be!", whispering; "Thanks for choosing our sMall urban vintage hoMe and for leaving us a review on TripAdvisor!". We are happy that you liked the overall ambiance in our whimsical sMall-ish hoMe and have noted your comments; true, we had put a lot of effort in making the rooms a little cozy with stories in every nook and cranny; which we are surprised you had discovered! Our business philosophy is to always try to improve based on our feedback, be it positive or negative, as we benchmark our performance right here on TripAdvisor.

As the M Boutique Family the the guitar riffs by George, we are still grateful that you had loved your experience in our hoMe.
