It was our first time visiting Ipoh and apart from enjoying everything what this lovely town has to offer, our trip was made even more memorable by the hotel we stayed.
Welcome to the WEIL Hotel, Ipoh.
When it comes to scouting on the best leisure and family accommodation, refreshing swimming pools and delectable food to indulge in, WEIL Hotel could very well be the answer to your travel needs.
Upon arriving at Sultan Azlan Shah Airport after an hour flight, our next destination would typically be the hotel. All thanks to its close proximity to the airport, we hardly had time to warm our seats before realising that we had arrived at the hotel after only less than 10 mins (6km)!
We arrived happily and left happily. There are many reasons why we would return to WEIL Hotel again.
Beautiful Lobby – Where You Find Space to Chill
If our short, magical stay were to mean anything, the best takeaway from this stay would be the warm customer service we experienced. The hotel had it nailed and we felt safe and comfortable the moment we stepped into this place.
The lobby looked very new, spacious and guests would be pleased to see there were many armchairs placed for them to chill.
The Superior Room comes with a size of between 32 sqm to 39 sqm. “WOW” is the magic word to describe when one enters the superior suite.
The room was equipped with a king-sized bed, a study desk and chair, armoire, safe, and a fine stand for luggage.
With crisp linens and soft pillows, it would not be hard to have a comfortable night’s sleep!
The hotel also provides a smart phone for traveler to use.
I loved the large well-equipped bathroom where large fluffy towels and face cloths were supplied sufficiently.
Ipoh Parade Shopping Centre – Adjoined to WEIL Hotel
Being inter-connected to Ipoh Parade Shopping Centre was a big plus to staying at the WEIL Hotel. During our stay, it was so convenient to dine and shop at the shopping centre at the same time.

Breakfast @ The TIFFIN
TIFFIN offers a relaxed ambience where guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Known for its popular Nasi Lemak and Roti Canai, it is no surprising that TIFFIN is a favourite among the hotel guests.
A hearty breakfast!
Take a Dip in the Pool!
Where kids would go crazy over this huge infinity pool. Your vacation would not be completed without dipping into the refreshing water.
No matter whether it is day or night, the pool offers beautiful panoramic view of the town of Ipoh.
How about chilling out here in an al fresco dining concept at the Cabana?
The Rooftop Gastro Bar Restaurant
The Deck Gastrobar is a rooftop bar at WEIL Hotel.
Situated at level 13, we can choose al fresco dining or chill out here. On the weekends, this place will come with a live band to keep guests entertained! They have also introduced the Live@The Deck serie, which highlights entertainment by live bands on Thursday & Friday and DJs from KL on Saturdays.
How true is that!
Yuk Sou Hin – A Favorite for Locals & Tourists Alike
We were recommended to the food at Yuk Sou Hin, a pork free Chinese restaurant, where we could also experience the authentic dishes of Ipoh. Their signature Smoked Duck with lychee wood is a must-try dish 🙂
Food lovers, especially Malays who enjoy Chinese food, will definitely love this.
When it comes to a delicious Chinese cuisine and dim sum, Yuk Sou Hin certainly delivers one of the best authentic dishes in Ipoh. We had dim sum breakfast here and these orders relished our mouthful of happiness!
Yoga @ The Lawn
To engage the guests, the hotel also held Community Yoga Session at its rooftop area – The Lawn.
The busyness of life can cause a ton of anxiety and take a toll on your health, and yoga can be the perfect workout for loosening up and destressing. The participants were up here early in the morning working out and practicing their moves.
An accommodation like no other, WEIL Hotel is located close to many attractions which you can read in Ipoh Travelogue here.
Concubine Lane, where we experience the charm of Ipoh old town.
Kong Heng Square, where hipster cafes and boutique shops gave modern trendy feel to the surroundings.
Tong Sui Kai (Dessert Street), where it becomes one of the most happening places in Ipoh when the sun sets.
Memory Lane, where it is the best place to go to for rare and secondhand items at reasonable prices.
Kelle’s Castle, where it offers one of the most instagram-worthy spots in Ipoh!
The next time you’re in Ipoh, be sure that WEIL Hotel will make your stay memorable in every possible ways!
