Basic budget hotel. Near to the shopping mall and have some supper places near the hotel. Clean and nice. But wifi was bad. Ask the staff to fix it and they say they can't do anything about it. Though location is fine but the rest is only just basic

I was staying the hotel after a business trip in Penang. It is about 5 minutes walk away from Macalister Road or Traders Hotel. That's the main reason to select this hotel. It was good to walk during day time but quite dark along the old houses at night and there were many stray dogs around the area. As for... More

Famous food stalls and shops nearby. Hotel price very economical. Clean rooms, with simple design. Walking distance to shopping mall with popular shops and cafes, cinema, eateries etc. Convenient store just located at Ground floor, with almost everything you need when traveling, and also bicycle rental. Car park provided free but if you are late you might need to double... More

The hotel location is close to Komtar tower at appr. 5-7 mins walk. I've been to Penang before and I found this is great hotel to choose. Wifi was working fine while I stayed there (08Apr-12Apr). My room was big enough for 2 people stay, I like the hanger design in the room, and the bathroom was big too, they... More

The room was spacious however it has a strong cigarette odor + musty smell. The sink was leaking in the bathroom. Poor service from the staff. They don't seem to care about their guest nor even try to. WIFI was good in certain part of the room. The good connection is often nearest to the door. Good location. It is... More

I decide that I would stay at this Hotel on the recommendation of a "friend". Take my advice, not as a friend, but as a traveller, and give this place a wide berth. There is very little in the rooms apart from a TV that shows either local or Chinese stations and not very of them at that. There is... More
