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’.

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!
