Tricia Woo
Sojourn Beds & Cafe guesthouse is situated in the very heart of Taiping, in a typical and classic renovated 1930’s shophouse. We offer our guests comfortable and cozy accommodation, with spacious lounges to chill out and socialise with other travellers. Enjoy a slow and leisurely morning in our downstairs cafe with inside and outside seating, whilst enjoying complimentary 24/7 coffee & tea. We serve a simple breakfast (toast, margarine and jams) from 8 to 10am to get you going, and at other times there are cold drinks and fresh coffee for sale. Upstairs, you can enjoy two lounges and our garden terrace. We have book swap, luggage storage, town maps, travel brochures and bicycle hire (RM12 per day, RM5 per 3 hours). We have 16 dorm beds and 6 private rooms, all with shared bathrooms. We take pride in keeping our guesthouse spotlessly clean for our guests.
