3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

The room was small and clean, although a coat of paint and some new furniture wouldn't have hurt. The supply of water and tea and coffee at the end of the corridor was a very good idea, as Penang is very hot and a steady supply of water is required. Other than that the room was very average, it had... More

The location is good, 10 mins walk to Komtar. However, the room is noisy, u can hear clearly the TV sound from next door and the walking sound at the corridor! Affecting sleep. Not worth the price although is quite cheap.

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

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
