This is a budget hotel close to Gurney Lane. Room not very large but clean. Very basic breakfast provided. WiFi speed rather slow and computer provided for use in the lobby extremely slow. TV has very channels.

Decided to give this hotel a try on a particularly busy weekend in Penang. What a great find! The hotel was new and nicely decorated; its facilities were ample (even a hairdryer and bedroom slippers were provided). For the price we paid, I would say it was an excellent deal. Breakfast was included, but that was something you can do... More

Tiled flooring, i have an aversion towards these because it gets pretty damn cold in the aircond but they give slippers. SMART. Outstanding staff,... More

The place is minimal with economy price. As long as you do not expect a red carpet, this might be good for your stay and play around Penang. It is little far from the center street, but still you can find some places to drink and eat around there. Hotel staff were nice and polite. A room was not that... More

Stay there for 3 nights. The services is excellent and reception is open 24 hours so there are always people there. The bed sheet is clean and all the basics are there. The location is great as we can walk to all the well known places of visits and street food. Bring your own toiletries as they only provide shower... More

The hotel, though it is a little far from the food centres along Macalister, it features good rooms for comfortable stay. Recommended for travellers on budget. Furthermore, the staffs are very helpful! Great experience!

Good location along Macalister Rd. in Georgetown, Penang. Easily accessible, with local hawker food just a 5-minute walk away, to tantalize your taste buds once the sun sets. You get what you pay for. WiFi is spotty, but works well in the early morning. Very basic motel/inn, but value for money to say the least! Simple breakfast, but sumptuous and... More
