Hotel was good with historical building. It's so vintage! Location was near to the central and some restaurants. Room hotel is clean and all the stuffs inside the room are also vintage. Liked it! A bit spooky at the night when i walked alone along the corridor. But, it's never mind.

The columns along the balconies still portrays the old architectural heritage of the building. Charges are reasonable and rooms are clean. But some rooms are old and not soundproof. There is a common area with chess sets on tables and chalkboard for children to doodle.

The hotel is about a 15 min. walk from the center of Georgetown. If our room had been a bit larger (it was rather small), we would have given 5 stars, as everything else was excellent, esp. the lovely swimming pool and the very friendly and professional staff. Right nearby in Jalan Burma are 2 excellent hawker-centers with absolutely fabulous... More

I stayed in this hotel for 04 days and 03 nights. The Hotel has its own pro and cons. We reached here early morning. As the checkin time was late and the room was not vacant, our luggage was kept in the luggage room. Reception staff was helpful and asked for the mobile no saying that she will inform us... More

Good location and ample parking. Room is also cosy and reasonably clean. Staff are also pleasant and courteous. Good wifi signal in the room. We did not require much assistance from the staff (apart from checking in & out) as we only came back to the room to sleep at night. And we slept well as the room is comfortable.... More

Budget hotel that is a little dated and in needs of some TLC. The hotel looks lovely and the pool area is great after a long day exploring the local area. The main problem was mosquitoes, so many that we had to buy bug spray for the rooms. The problem seems to be that because of the age of the... More

Not so good. Very noisy in the early hours of the morning!! Sounded as if someone was being attacked. No presence of security. Screams went on for days. Overall service - poor. So glad we are safely back home.

We were shown into rooms that smelt, the toilet had not been cleaned-the last occupant's solids were still there. The room was dirty, paint peeling on the walls. When we complained at reception we were shown other rooms that were equally bad. Eventually we decided to ask for a refund and found a much cleaner, central hotel.

1st time check in this hotel. For family easy for room in GF. Environment verry Heritage and Style. Clean in overall. Swimming pool not to small but Ok for kids enjoy the pool. If need to go other place like Komtar, Perangin Mall, still need to drive a car. Easy Parking because can park near room.
