If you are passing through Ipoh, in the middle of Malaysia then I feel I must point out the very interesting Majestic Hotel.

It's actually located on the third floor of the Railway station, an imperial pile that echos the Taj Mahal in its construction.

The superior rooms are very much worth the money - as they face out onto an impressive balcony littered with fraying leather chairs.

You can easily manage tall stories being told here of shooting tigers over a few G & T's

Unique Qualities: The lift is a museum piece with a little twee message in it pointing out that if the lift was a person, then it would be of a venerable age and would need to be treated with alot of care and respect.

Also liked the original Victorian post box near the entrance.
