  • Couple

    Nicely presented hotel. Friendly reception staff. Rooms and shower OK. On site 24 hr tuck shop. On site restaurant with reasonable prices. Safe in room.

    Inconsistent Wifi in room. Breakfast poor and not aimed at westerners. No juice available/only white bread. Breakfast staff clueless regarding service. Meals in restaurant inconsistent along with staff. One really nice lady however other staff seemed appeared sloppy. Fridge in room would be a bonus.

  • Group of friends

    Convenient and accessible within places of interests

  • Family with children

    Good location, close to the Heritage Area. Also, good access to good food, hawker style !

  • Family with children

    The location is very good if you're a food hunter. You can find all sorts of food along Jalan Macalister. Gurney Drive and Komtar are just nearby.

    Was assign to forth floor which the wifi is not available. The lift is not available in forth floor, so we need to take lift to 3rd floor and then walk our way up to forth floor. Which is bad. (Since forth floor has no wifi and elevator, then make it cheaper.)

  • Group of friends

    The security guard very friendly and the staff are very polite.

    Hard to get extra key.

  • Family with children

    Comfortable & clean

    Body shampoo dispenser need to handle with care caused it's easily detached from the holder. If possible replace it with other design to make sure it's fixed appropriately.

  • Older travelers

    1. Staff were nice people. Always friendly and helpful. 2. Safe deposit box in room. 3. Hot water kettle in room. 4. Hairdryer on request. 5. Clean room, small but very good bathroom. 6. First class mattress, good sheets. 7. Room looked on to a mango tree.

    1. Didn't have a 'Do Not Disturb' sign. 2. I had to inform them that their WiFi router had to be reset on two occasions. 3. I like a carpeted bedroom but this was a tiled floor. 4. Small room, but okay for a short stay.

  • Older travelers

    Spacious parking space. Staff, including the guards are helpful, friendly and courteous. Nice & comfortable outdoor sitting for breakfast + free Wifi.

    No flexible shower hose for shower.

  • Older travelers

    Hotel was clean, room service was good, staff very informative..they helped us find the most tasty char kway teow in town for locals, which outsiders of Penang will never able to find, just walking distance from the hotel. They also showed us a Food Map and directed us how to get there E.G. best chendol, cheapest salted fish wholesaler, etc.

  • Group of friends

    friendly staff room clean breakfast

    improve soundproff,expecially the noise doors...

  • Group of friends

    Young men at the counter are very nice and helpful. People at the dining hall as well as the cleaner are friendly too. Very fast wifi. They can also book taxi for you at reasonable price.

    Located at around 1.5 km from Komtar which is the bus tranportation center you have to go to before you can take a bus to all the places of interest. It took me about 20 minutes to walk there. Taking buses or taxi could be slower due to the long waiting time. But if you are going to Georgetown, there is a bus stop (101) within 5 minutes' walk across the street.

  • Single

    Very clean & friendly staff, comfortable. Easy to access for George Town.

  • Single

    free wifi in room and all areas

    little public transport access, maybe worth a shuttle service

  • Couple

    - Staff. - good/clean room and bathroom.

    - There's not fridge in the room. - a bit hard to arrive/leave by walking.

  • Older travelers

    Brilliant location, cleanliness, attention to details.. all in all my favorite hotel

    Issue only 1 door card, issue only 1 extra pillow, why only 1? No one can give a logical explanation, silly reasons.
