If you are looking for a stay-cation hotel in Miri at a wallet-friendly price, then this hotel may just be perfect for you. The Imperial Palace Hotel certainly wow-ed us during our brief stay here a couple of weeks ago.

Through Agoda.com, I managed to secure a standard king room at RM175 nett, which is inclusive of breakfast for 2 adults. Being 2km away from Bintang Mall, it is close enough to shopping area minus the headache of looking for parking space. By the way, parking is complimentary for stay-in guests.

The hotel pays attention-to-details when you see a bath mat folded into a ribbon such as in the photo below:

Since it was a stay-cation trip, we decided to try out their jacuzzi-styled swimming pool. The kids loved it, and I did too, to a certain extent. I thought the pool needs cleaning because there bottom felt slimy and there were dead insects in the pool. Sorry, no photo of the swimming pool since we did not bring our phone down.

Lastly, we loved the buffet breakfast at Menawan Restaurant. They have quite a selection suited for the adults and kids. Their nasi lemak is served with generous selection of dishes and their rice congee is really delicious. We ended up over-stuffing ourselves, LOL!

Overall, I recommend this hotel for both single or family travellers looking for value-for-money hotel :)
