Symphony Suites Hotel Ipoh

A brief look into Deluxe Suite in Symphony Suites Hotel in Ipoh, Malaysia. 

Checked in on 9th November 2015
Checked out on 10th November 2015

Look like something from google hor, but nope! Found this Kolam (Deepavali floor decoration) in the lobby, it's too pretty not to take a shot of it.

Thanks to Emily Lowe for the giveaway, I got a free one night accomodation at Symphony Suites Hotel in Ipoh, near the famous limestone caves area. So in this post, I will review about Deluxe Suite Room in this hotel.


 DELUXE ROOM has not only BED ROOM, but LIVING ROOM , SMALL COFFEE TABLE, and TOILET, and another BATHROOM in our bedroom!

Can you tell me how is this not luxurious??

Neh~~ Now telling this using picture, and video at the end of this post.

 Opposite the bed is this simple working desk, with television and the light + radio things.

As you can see, everything here is so sleek, clean, chic and NEW!!!
I mean you will find less fault with NEW hotel!!

 There is one big mirror just before the bathroom, its so broad, taller than me also. Again a sleek mirror.

I actually do not know anything about the background of this hotel. But I could tell that it is new because the use of this high technology finger touch buttons but the aircond, signage for hotel staffs and the switch to the lights. 

 And another big wide mirror in the bathroom in bedrom. Tell me how is this not comfortable??

 Some of the facilities in the toilet. And the super mini Colgate toothpaste is enough for 3 times use.

 Room Service Menu as found beside the telephone as usual.

and here is the content.
The price where true on the date of Novemeber 2015 yea. Warn you ahead. 

Living Room

 Actually both of us were quite surprise to see a seperate living room from our bed room (In fact, we didnt expect a living room too! ) Remember, the Deluxe room at Rm 200 with breakfast for 2 pax, would you expect to have a seperate living room?

 At the left side after the main entrance door.

 Toilet for the living room!

That's the main exit door behind me. Also, it has newspaper at the second morning. too bad we didnt receive it cause we checked out at 8am, I think. I felt like we both visit here the wrong timing. He is busy with his own insurance and direct sales schedule, and I have my assignment and FYP to do. And guess what? We spent our entire day in Ipoh in the room, just to do assignment, and he read his marketing book. That's a bit lame, I wish I can linger at the soft bed more.....

By the way, here is the video that I have taken using my cell phone. It's a bit unstable. And the content is more or less the same with the pic description. But if you are craving for more, then this might satiate you. Enjoy~~~

Breakfast Buffet

Talking about the breakfast buffet that Symphony Suites provide to it's guest, it won't be too many choices of food. but it's definitely impressive! because there were all so delicious! 

Why is it Impressive? 

1. Normally I don't expect much from the breakfast buffet from hotel, but this cafe serve delicious food! (Nasi Lemak with Ayam Rendang, well seasoned Potato Wedges)

2. Spacious, the gap among table to table is spacious. 

3. Didn't expect to have fried egg counter also. 

Sleeping mode at the entrance of Symphony Cafe. Ground Floor (same floor with Lobby)

 The first sight of food that I saw. Beverage on the right, and Tosted bread with Jam on the left.

 I don't know why I particularly want to give extra space for this. Hehe.

 They don't serve dessert, but how do you expect from the Deluxe suuite room that pay RM 200 for this?

In fact, I quite like their salad table. It has 3 different types of fruit, then salad. Their ingredients is quite premium I would say. Orea biscuit, PIng Pong biscuit, Bell pepper (that is honestly do not cheapskate at all, coz it would be Rm 4-5 for only 1 in hypermarket),  tomato, carrot and Asian Onion Ring.

 Here is another zoom of it.

 The big portion of each type of vege would means it take me some times to cut it into small pieces before I mix with the dressing, but  I always love to have Salad during buffet because it's very troublesome to make salad with variety of vege and salad at home.Don't you think like that?

 Extra shot given on the bread because it is properly arrange , neat and clean.

 This is another point that I feel impressive. They have nasi lemak with Ayam Rendang despite they have fried rice. The ayam rendang, despite too overwhelmed with the taste of Ginger, still delicious and I knew it was prepared meticulously, cause it has lemak santan (coconut milk). Which is why I like it!!

And do you find something interesting?
They even try to keep the sambal nasi lemak warm by water boiled it. Which I personally don't think it's necessary, but glad to see, cause it would means the sambal is hot when I eat it.

 The porridge with various condiments. Which I didnt try, cause Nasi Lemak is good enough.

 YOu can have your mee soup here!

Another points of impressive , because they have fried egg counter!! that you can mix with onion, buttom mushroom, bell pepper and chicken ham!! (omg, all are my favourite food!!)

 OKay, perhaps the picture that food photo that you see is mundane and normal. But trust me, it is so delicious in real life. I especially like the Nasi Lemak with Ayam Rendang, and potato wedges and salad!!

After the breakfast, I tell my bf that I don't mind to pay extra after the breakfast. Frankly, neither Emily nor the hotel ask me to write a review about this hotel, I decided to write it all at my own will. Because you pay only Rm 200 to enjoy the luxurious room and great breakfast that we had.

The downfall of this hotel is that it's location is take 20-30 mins to reach Ipoh town. But I would still consider to come here again, if I can't find any better hotel provide worthy service in Ipoh Town. 

I personally think that the location of this hotel is strategic when you want to visit Limestone caves near the second morning.
