    1. the location is near to the shopping center 2. the staffs are very helpful

    1. The Bath Room need a bit more attentions to the cleanliness 2. Bath towels were so old , perhaps requires a new set.

  • Group of friends

    The staff are super friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. I haven't stayed anywhere else whenever I'm in Penang, since the rooms are very easy to book and pay for.

    A "proper" hotel with no frills. Well located just 3 mins walk from Penang Rd and Chulia St. Not a problem to walk from the jetty or catch a bus. Staying in Georgetown is way more interesting than Batu Ferrangi. Mydin emporium is just to your right on Penang Rd for just about anything. (toothbrush or towel) Paid 80+8+4=92 or 30 Aussie dollars -- not too baad .

    it has been said before--- the towels are past their use by date but overall I was well pleased.

    The food at Lou's Kafe across the street was superb!!! The service and friendliness of the wait staff made everything else worth it.

    Just a lot older than I thought it would be.

    For the money a really good choice. Clean, big room, good location. They helped us aranging a driver for the next day to see the island penang and booked the ferry tickets for us.

    They didnt want to open the breakfast earlier, so we had to hurry up really bad to eat at least a little bit before taking the taxi to the ferry - and the breakfast was nothing you need a lot of time to prepare...

    Staff were very helpful, nice rooftop terrace for breakfast (basic but good), fridge in the room, TV with satellite channels, a bath! Big room - couldn't fault our stay really - $77Sing for 2 nights - BARGAIN!

    Was a smoking room so a stale smell of cigerettes but that didn't really affect our stay at all.

    The excess person charges is reasonable.

  • Family with children

    The hotel staff quite friendly and the hotel is located in the town.

    Breakfast too simple.

  • Older travelers

    It was a pretty decent hotel to stay. The location is quite alright;just a street away to the city bus station

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Easy check in. Very helpful staff. Good choices at breakfast..

    Breakfast didn't start until 7.30 a.m. As we had to leave to catch our ferry at 7.45 a.m. this didn't give us much time. Perhaps a 7 a.m. breakfast start would be more helpful. Towels and bedding were a little 'tired', although clean.

  • Family with children

    Convenience for city tour and easy to go to the resterant and shopping.
