    I was staying at here ,and what I like the most is the friendliness of the staff there .they will give u smile all the time and also helpful. Just a few things is ,the toilet ,there’s is no hose .u need to use the scoop to take water and only toilet roll provided . The hotel surrounding abit gloomy but that’s ok ,still consider okay no worries. What i love the most is the aircon was so cool!! And for the breakfast , there’s only a toast , fruit and coffee ,juice etc. U may need pay RM 5 for side dishes like scramble egg & sausage . But everything from those all ,its all fine for me .

    I just have a few issues that if can to change the iron inc with iron board. Seems like the surface of iron board (floor 1) make us hard to iron the cloth as the condition not okay. Next is, housekeeper is confusing my own towel with Hotel towel. As I check my white towel already being taken during housekeeping time and replace with new one. But its okay for me. Not a big deal. Just to make sure during housekeeping time, please take a good look with guest stuff. Overall okay. Will come back here if I go to Penang again.

    Very good place close to the centre of Georgetown. Rooms clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. There is a kettle in the room with cups, so bring tea and coffee. If you are a non smoker, you might not appreciate the slight smell of nicotine coming from the pillows. I asked for a non smoking room but I guess that is not so easy to get in Malaysia, where smoking is a very widespread habit.

    Good location, Value for Money”

    Very good location, about 300m from Penang Road. Transfer Road roti canai is 100m away. Excellent value for money if booked early. Most of the attractions are close by. Blue Mansion, Komtar Top, Cendol stall, Line Clear nasi kandar, Hameediyah, are all within walking distance. The "happening" places along Chulia Street and Love Lane are about 10 mins walk away from the hotel. Room is big and spacious, aircond worked well, bathroom has hot water, bottled water provided. Friendly staff. Overall, a pleasant experience of staying for the 2nd time here.
