You can see the hotel is still renovation in progress. As i was only there to sleep, hence wasn't affected if there's really renovation noise in the day. Room was big and looks renovated. Limited cable tv programmes. Basic toiletries. Beds are clean. We've got the big room at level 10 for a family of 5. If you don't want... More

With the renovation, one should expect a little construction noise during the day. However, there is another noise in the evening. A few meters behind the hotel there is an open food court with live music all the way to midnight. The lobby, has a certain musty smell. Maybe it is an incense. Maybe it is just old. It looks...

Rooms in the Hotel were newly renovated, hence it was clean and modern.... More

When we stayed there, the renovation work is almost finished. According to the information we got, only one floor left to be renovated and the renovation itself doesn't effect our stay. We like the room because it is simple and spacious. The bathroom is good as they have a glass to separate dry and wet section and the pressure of... More

Newly renovated, old place. Clean facility. Prompt service. Below average breakfast. Located at central place in Georgetown. Very near to all good eating places. Lower rooms can be slightly noisy. Adjacent to other 3 & 4 star hotels which can be more expensive than this hotel.
