Writing an Ipoh travel blog, I receive a good number of enquiries on Movie Animation Park Studios, particularly on the Perak Pass, Annual Pass, pass renewal, discounted tickets, attractions and lately, where to stay near MAPS.
When it comes to recommending accommodation, I always need to know the visitor’s budget. For those who are on a tight budget, a good choice would be M Motel at Meru Ipoh. Don’t disregard M Motel, just because it is not named ‘hotel’.
Opened for business in early 2017, M Motel is a striking pink-white building facing Jabatan Audit Negara (Perak), across the road from Terminal Amanjaya.
With the bus-cum-taxi hub just a stone’s throw away, M Motel is suitable for guests who do not have their own transport. However, if they drive here, there are ample parking spaces available.
This two-floor, double-shoplot building offers 27 rooms. Room categories are: Single, Double, Quad Room and Family Room. Family rooms are connecting rooms of two Doubles.
All rooms are air-conditioned, WiFi connected and installed with a flat-screen TV with normal channels.
Other in-room amenities include ironing board and iron, mini fridge, tea and coffee making facilities plus complimentary two cups of mineral water, as well as toiletries.
Rooms have hill view or town view, but some are windowless. If you are particular about views, feel free to make a request upon check in.
During my visit a few days ago, I was quite amazed by the facilities and amenities provided by M Motel. With room rates starting from RM69, every room has free high speed internet, duvet cover, iron & board, ensuite bathroom with hot shower and mini fridge.
For this price, it is certainly difficult to come across. I really appreciate the iron and board, without having to make booking at the reception counter. M Motel is actually M Hotel!
M Motel places safety at top priority. There is CCTV coverage in all public areas of the premises, from its entrance to corridors. Also, the main entrance is always locked; checked-in guests are provided with a blue chip to unlock it.
If you have been searching for accommodation that is friendly to your pocket, look no further. M Motel is comfortable enough, and equipped with more than basics. Also, as mentioned, it is within walking distance from MAPS.
