The hotel’s welcoming facade and happy colourful palette offer a friendly atmosphere to unwind and relax. The hotel’s interior design is inspired by the Pomelo fruit – for which Ipoh is renowned – with eye-catching hues of citrus that exude a sense of freshness.
The hotel’s 113 rooms comprise four single rooms, 60 twin rooms, 46 double rooms and three suites that emanate warmth, comfort and cheerfulness for a delightful stay. To celebrate its opening, ibis Styles Ipoh is offering all-inclusive rates from RM160+.

The hotel’s all day dining restaurant, sTREATs, offers a variety of scrumptious local and international dishes. True to the local culture, sTREATs’ decor is inspired by Ipoh’s bustling night markets and Kopitiams – Malaysia’s traditional coffee shops. The hotel offers four modern and well-equipped function rooms to accommodate business guests and meeting delegates visiting the city.
Perched on the hotel’s roof terrace is the exclusive Mù bar with spectacular panoramic views of the city skyline, which makes it a great place to unwind with friends. The bar also offers a wide variety of cocktails and premium drinks.

Guests can freely move, watch and feel the hotel transform and reveal its own layers of character that resonate a feeling of freshness and vibrancy.”
