[Air-con] Air-condition unit isn't cold enough to cater for the room environment, even though at full blast & temperature set to the lowest. [Wi-Fi] Hotel attendance can even give you the wrong passwords for my room & lobby. Wi-Fi isn't strong & had never been at full-blast ever since I stayed there for 3 nights. Wi-Fi is very difficult to... More

Stayed there for 1 night with family (2 rooms). I did not book as we arrived late (around midnight) in Penang. The room was very spacious for the price. All working well (a/c, hot shower, tv and lightings). My daughter's room a/c was a bit noisy initially but quiet after a while. We stayed on the 2nd floor and found... More

An old hotel in an out of date location but very clean, hotel staff eager to please, adequate restaurants nearby and in the lobby, near the center of the city. No storage space in rooms except for one cabinet to put hanging clothes in, no shelves or drawers for your clothes, three hangers (the manager gave me more hangers on... More

Front desk staff not very friendly. Room is clean, but too basic (but because it's cheap, so kinda expected). Aircond making some noise, no hot water in the toilet, no toiletries, was not given wifi password, and when I called front desk to ask about it, they gave wrong password, and I don't even bothered to ask again.. TV channels... More

Lobby staff was very pleasant and polite. Gave me the password of WIFI at midnight with a smile. Called for a taxi for me to the airport in the next morning - it came within minutes. The room was very basic yet complete. Aircond, TV, lamps; working perfectly. Beds were made up nicely and the whole room was clean. Toilet... More

Do not stay here . Our room was old, dirty and smelled like stale smoke and to top it off we ended up with bed bugs. We knew it was a budget hotel but we were definitely steered wrong by the high ratings it received. We looked around the other floors and saw they were doing renovations on the upper... More
