Travelodge Hotels Asia (TLA), one of the fastest growing midscale hotel companies in Asia, upgrades its expansion in Malaysia with the debut of its fourth hotel, Travelodge Ipoh.

The hotel opened on January 16 following a successful rebranding and refurbishment of the former Heritage Hotel Ipoh. 

Ipoh has been gaining steady recognition as a tourism destination in recent years. A confluence of factors – including the city’s deep-rooted colonial and cultural heritage, the abundance of natural attractions in and around Ipoh, as well as convenient tourist access enabled by its own international airport – has increased Ipoh’s allure and popularity with domestic and international travallers alike.

The city’s tourism is expected to get a further boost as the Perak administration starts rolling out various initiatives under the ‘Visit Malaysia Year 2020’ campaign.

Mr. Marcus Aw, Managing Director, Travelodge Hotels Asia said “We are thrilled to kick off 2020 with the opening of our fourth Travelodge hotel in Malaysia. Our entry into Ipoh is fuelled by our confidence in the city’s growth prospects to become one of the country’s top destinations in the coming years.”

“With Malaysia on a huge tourism drive and an ambitious target of attracting 30 million international visitors, we believe there is far more headroom for growth, especially for global midscale hotel brands that cater to value conscious travellers. We are keen to introduce the Travelodge brand to other cities such as Kota Kinabalu, Malacca, Johor Bahru and Kuching – just to name a few – and build our portfolio as we work towards 15 hotels in Malaysia by 2025.”

Travelodge Ipoh is situated close to the city’s business district and famous tourist attractions such as Concubine Lane, Mural Art Lane, Perak Tong Cave Temple, Kellie’s Castle and Gua Tempurung. It offers 268 newly refurbished rooms in five categories – Superior, Deluxe, Premier, Family Deluxe and Family Suite – catering to both business and leisure guests.

Additionally, the hotel offers 2 meeting rooms, 3 ballrooms and a grand ballroom, making it as an ideal venue for meetings, incentives, conferencing and exhibition (MICE). Other amenities include high speed WIFI, satellite TV, self-service laundromat, a gym, a kids’ play area and The Lodge, a multi-functional communal and dining space, to complete the Travelodge Ipoh experience, which promises comfort, convenience and connectivity.
