The price are fair in the area, but the services is terribly bad, receptionist is irresponsible, bad attitude, unhelpful, parking limited but you can't request for their assistance , they wont provide ANY ASSISTANCE(a simple reminder of taking your room card) other than taking your payment and ask you to sign on your payment receipt. Worst hotel/inn i ever been... More

To conclude, the place can be maintained in a much better state than what it is at the moment. The room that I had smelt of cigarette smoke, and immediately was a turn off for me. The prices are low, and I guess now you understand why. Hopefully the management can improve and get the place up and running well... More

Totally disappointed with the experience at this hotel! It was Expensive (RM180++ a night -could have gotten a much better hotel for that price instead of this dump), service & facilities way below expectation. Only 1 lift & it wasn't working throughout our stay. We were assured that it would be repaired ASAP, but when we checked out 4 days... More

What do you need on a budget holiday? A clean room, clean towels, clean hot shower and a great location. These were all met easily by this inn. My wife and i practices "compact living" and have stayed a lot of times here. We totally enjoyed the convenience that it provides for a weekend getaway.

My travel partner booked this place hurriedly online. No.1, I was frustrated with her lateness in organisation, No.2 I checked the place online myself and thought ''oh no!'' and No.3, my No.2 reaction was confirmed. The first thing I noticed was the lack of help or welcome when we arrived. Then the reception couldn't find our bookings; and then we... More

I used to stay in this inn when I go to Penang as it is one of the cheaper places to stay in Gurney Drive. Location: - located along Jalan Kelawei - 5 minutes walk to Gurney Drive - 20 minutes walk to Gurney Plaza (I'm a slow walker ;p) - 15 minutes drive to Chowrasta Market (city centre) -... More

This hotel is at Jalan Kelawei and she has few branches in other states of Malaysia such as Skudai (Johor), Shah Alam and Petaling Jaya (Selangor). It is located in the heart of the town and near Gurney Plaza and Gurney Hawker Stalls (just 15 mins walk). It is also near the souvenirs shop called "Yi Siang" (just 10 mins... More
