Cannot praise this place enough. Everything was spot on. For the price I wasn't expecting much at all but I was very pleasantly surprised. The room, although on the small side, was more than comfortable and immaculately clean. We had to spend our day in Penang planning the next leg of our trip so we stayed in the room for... More

One of the nicer ones on Chulia St within the price range. I'm pretty OCD about cleanliness and my room was pretty nice for the price I paid (RM130+GST+RM2). Small room, but was out all day so it didn't really matter. Air-conditioning is pretty efficient and there is cable tv and coffee/tea making facilities. Staff is friendly and helpful. My... More

The appearance of the hotel might look strange, however the rooms are very clean and nice. The white theme is very elegant and relaxing. If you are sharing a bathroom it is not extremely inconvenient. the bathrooms are clean and well-equipped. If you are having your own bathroom in the room, then you will have a little advantage in terms... More

I'm writing this review as I wait for the bus to pick me up from reception having just checked out. This hotel was a great find. Being located just off Chulia Street in Georgetown it's only a couple of minutes walk to the Love Lane backpackers area, and 15/20 minutes to the seafront and Armenian Street artwork area and we...

Excellent staff. Great location. Enjoyed the complimentary bikes, however they were quite worn out. The entrance is appealing with a driveway leading a away from the busy Lebuh Chulia (Chulia road). Nearby bus station to get to airport is available. Cable TV.

I understand that the hotel has 45 rooms. We occupied 3 rooms. It is very clean, friendly staff, friendly and helpful security guard. The hotel is not noisy. It is near to many hawker stalls with good food.
