Stay with my boss during business trip. Found the hotel room very nice and clean. The down side about the room is the lighting not bright enough to do paper work. As my boss commented the current lighting is to dim to do work. Need improvement.

I had booked for 2 nights in ppisland. In term of service, it is satisfied but not for the clean level. Saw lot of cockroaches in the room, small n medium size. The staff allowed us to cancel our room on second day and fully refund.

A group of 4 greedy friends on a mission, " Food Trailing Penang". Besides the minor inconveniences of not having any shower curtains (wet floors), having to request for a hair dryer & of the air conditioner blowing directly at you, all else was great & more.

My last stay was a couple of years back, and it's good to see everything has remained more or less the same. It's quite clean, and the bed is comfortable, and the standard inclusions, while basic, they cover for everything that's reasonably needed. The location is within walking distance to the food places on Jalan Mcalister, Komtar, and the nearby... More

The price is very reasonable and cheap too. The room is very clean and simple, with all the basic amenities and facilities provided. They have hot shower, TV,... More

Not a bad hotel at all for the value. We chose a budget hotel for our stay in Penang and it served its purposes. Our room was quite small so we upgraded to the next class so the 3 of us could be more comfortable. The room had pretty strong AC as well. Located in a good area convenient to... More

It's less than 10 minutes walk to Georgetown. Great dim sum places just across and beside the hotel. Room is big and clean. However, bring ur own toothbrush and hair & body shampoo. The neighborhood is quiet and safe.
