FMS Railways

The Station Hotel in Ipoh originally opened in 1914 on Station Road (when the Ipoh railway station was still an attap building), and was later housed in the moorish-styled railway station building on Club Road (now Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab) in 1917. It is still open to this day as the Majestic Station Hotel.
