Ipoh is a wonderful travel destination worthy of at least a night’s stay. For too long, people have been making Ipoh a stop along the way (to Penang) and not a destination on its own. Now that we’ve given you a reason to explore more of Ipoh than just the old town neighbourhood, you’re going to need to check in to one of these boutique hotels in Ipoh.

Are you the sort of traveller who enjoys living within the bustle of the main town area or one that prefers to return to an idyllic surrounding? Good news for you — we’ve listed both types of boutique hotels in Ipoh. Places like Sekeping Kong Heng (which is right beside the famous egg custard coffee shop) and M Boutique Ipoh are right within the main areas of activity, while boutique hotels such as The Happy 8 Retreat and Ipoh Bali Hotel are a little ways away.

No matter your preference, one thing is for sure — these boutique hotels have their own character, which you will come to appreciate during your stay there. Now that you’re staying the night, why don’t you hit up these night joints for a spot of beer?
