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

As mention free wifi access in the room but you are amazed that you are not able to connect/ search the... 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

You can get better value for money closer in to town. Stayed one night then moved a bit closer into Georgetown for a room with better wifi and a cheaper cost. Rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean though, although walls very thin could hear traffic noise quite badly. Wouldn't stay again, service wasn't very helpful, not great location and... More

I have stay there for 2 nights for Penang bridge marathon. In overall, the room is clean, tidy & spacious enough for 4 of us. The bed quality is good, air-cond is cold enough. The location is good also because it is near to the town, and we can reach easily when looking for good food. We are very lucky... More
