It seems some people have confused this dump with the much nicer and more expensive, Georgetown City Hotel. There is NO pool, spa or airport pickup. I booked and paid for a 'Superior Single'.

Location- Not the best one . You have to go to other lanes in order to take buses which takes you to the best attractions of Penang. I had a hard time to find this hotel in night. I came from Batu Ferringhi and bus dropped us almost 400 mtrs away but it was really difficult to find this hotel... More

Everything is average..but it's a nice place to stay..Less noise and good receptionist! The KFC just next to this hotel and Penang Plaza is on the opposite. I am not recommended this hotel for those which is traveling without transport.
