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.

They have done a great job renovating this place. There is a pic in the foyer showing what it used to be like as a backpacker place. However the rooms leave something to be desired, and they forgot any services. No shower gel or shampoo, just a bar of soap. No fridge in the room (essential in SE Asia and... More

The room was alright. I booked the room with bathroom. Bathroom is very small. They have no sound proof, so it was kinda noisy in the morning when people walk pass. Bed sheet is a bit dusty. Overall, very normal room and nothing to shout out. But budget stay. What you pay, what you get.

Overated motel instead of hotel. Rooms were terrible, no sound proof, no drinking water provided, no lift, receptionist were rude and not helpful, air-conditioning stopped at the midnight, weird noise were heard and hotel furnitures were old and looked dirty. A disappointment and they rate themselves a hotel? Seriously? I can tolerate no sound proof, shared bathroom, weird noises, torned... More

I and my family lived here once, cause I couldn't find the hotel at Penang on Tet Holiday so I have to lived here. It's good for budget and family but not really like for their shared bath-room. Nice hotel with heritage and at Georgetown, Penang center. Anyway, cause I know this hotel good for buget, it's worth to try!

I booked through Agoda, a standard double room with ensuite. The hotel is easy to find, well maintained, clean & the rooms to a good standard, although they are small & sterile, everything is white, a little colour would be great. Good for a couple of days after that I would need somewhere with more space to feel comfortable, even... More
