Stayed in this hotel in a family room with shared toilets. Must say it is very clean and in excellent location! Only negative is that the TV is mounted very high near the ceiling and watching TV is a bit of a strain on the neck.

Perfect located in the Old Town, but peaceful enough and close to all the cheap and delicious food in the area. Hotel is safe and spotless clean. I was a bit dissapointed with my room, which was smaller and less comfortable than expected. I was disturbed by the loud sound of the generator just outside my room. Try to get... More

Stayed here on 14th February 2015 but because of personal reason we can't stay overnight. So end up we rent the bicycle to cycle around this beautiful city during Valentine's Day. 1. Most of the bicycles are old and have problems, difficult to find a good one. 2. The shared bathroom is quite private if that's what you concern, soundproof... More

The bathroom is super small though, the shower head is right above the sink and toilet. first night we arrived, the shower didn't work, however, the staff quickly came and fixed it. The aircon was okay at night, but we could not get it... More

The location of this hotel is good for travellers who want to explore more about the Penang famous street arts and experience enjoyable nightlife in terms of food. I personally likes to watch sunrise at the Chew Jetty and coincidentally it just takes about fifteen minute walks from the hotel. Parking space is provided for those who travel by cars.... More

Its very inconvenient. Bathroom are always wet and the doors are frosted see thru (on a sunny day the sun will shine thru... More

Good clean rooms, in a good clean simple hotel. Great location. For the money reasonable value. A little disappointing not to have bar fridge / mini bar in the standard rooms (we are in Asia - it does get hot so it is nice to have a cold drink waiting - and most rooms in Asia including $15-20AUD ones in...

Nice and clean room although a bit small. All in white from bedsheets , pillow cases , blanket & wall . Looks great and clean. Great location , easily accessible to all the heritage sites and nasi kandar stall (local dishes) and popular among locals. Air conditioning is poorly situated & hidden resulting room is not cold in the weather... More
