Who would have thought that an old abandoned bungalow in the corner lot of Ipoh Garden / Simee that was an eyesore for years could in the year of 2017 be transformed into a beautifully-appointed, classy 3-star business hotel?
Obviously, much time, effort and of course, money had been put into the project, but M Roof Hotel & Residences has in just a few short months become a major landmark in this mixed development area of Ipoh City.
As mentioned above, M Roof Hotel & Residences is really new. During my recent 4D/3N stay at the hotel, courtesy of Tourism Perak & Gaya Travel Magazine, the hotel has yet to be fully completed. On the works are a swimming pool, 500-pax ballroom and gymnasium.
In my opinion, other facilities that would make M Roof Hotel & Residences a primary choice for travellers, in addition to the above three, would be a bar with live band and its own merchandise store like what is available at M Boutique Hotel in another section of Ipoh.
If you are familiar with the M brand, you could easily recognise M Roof Hotel & Residences. The difference between M Boutique Hotel and M Roof Hotel & Residences is that M Boutique caters to a younger, hippier set of guests who want to enjoy something different and be surprised each time they set foot into the hotel.
Meanwhile, M Roof Hotel & Residences caters to a more mature, business class clientele. This is why room decor is standard Modernist-Minimalist concept across all 150 units of rooms and suites.
Moreover, none of these rooms has a long bath. I personally think it is not something that is missing although it is good if available.
Anyway, even though the hotel is not fully ready yet, I like to share some photos with you so that you know what to expect when you check in at M Roof Hotel & Residences.
Do take note that M Roof Hotel & Residences uses duvets of duck feather (down), which may give off a certain smell. Moreover, because of this, a stay at M Roof Hotel & Residences may not be suitable for guests who are allergic to organic matter.
