            I highly recommend visitors who are looking for a place to stay in Penang, to stay here! It's new so the beds and facilities are good. Super clean which is my priority! This would be a hotel I'd encourage anyone to stay at!

            Clean, new hotel”

            The hotel is clean and new. The location is great, and there's ample parking spot available. However, the rooms are not very soundproof, and at night, the booming sounds from the nearby entertainment premises can be quite disturbing. The noise usually starts before 10.00 pm and lasts until about 3.00 am.

            For starters, after our 5.5 hour arduous journey, we just wanted to bolt into our room. Being in a hurry to host my friend's wedding which was about to begin in an hour, this was the perfect hotel to check in to. Paperless check-in via Check In Kiosk, that's simply genius-revolutionary. I would come back just for that.

            The hotel has its own "basement" car park and it is near to the morning market (4mins walk). There is maps at the lobby. The staff has great services. Clean room, but not sound proof. But it is a excellent place to stay. :)

            Luv the stay here. Spacious and clean room. There's some noise from nearby club, but not to loud and I can still sleep just fine. You can hear the opening and closing of neighboring room door, but not much of a problem once everyone is asleep. One complaint is that the ironing board is really in a bad condition, and the iron is a cheap quality. almost burn my clothes during ironing coz the heat is so difficult to control. I would suggest the hotel to buy the panasonic dry iron during 11.11 sale ;D
