Great budget base in Georgetown. Budget hotel so don't expect much but clean. Situated in Jelan Penang about a km from Komtar towards the sea. On bus route and within walking distance of a variety of local and Western eating places and not far from Chinatown area. RIght next to Cititel Penang hotel.
