This place was horrible to stay in. Decor hadn't been updated for at least 25 years and our room was infested by cockroaches. Much better to go to the hotel next door for about the same price but much cleaner.

The hotel had better times, its a bit run down (rooms carpet, bathroom, furniture leave negative impressions), needs some service for upgrading. Cleanliness at the limit. First impression when we entered the room was... More

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.

Rooms are small to average size but mine was satisfactory. Located on a main street which becomes lively at night. Situated near a small western bar on same side of the road with loud music. Near a catholic church. Opposite is a budget Indian food, open restaurant (open until late). about a 18 -20 minute walk from Komtar centre shops,... More
