My family and I have been going to this establishment for years back when it was known as The Berjaya Hotel. We always had a great time here with many wonderful memories. Other reviews complained about the poor condition of the room is somewhat true. Some people might be turned off by the tired looking furniture, bed spreads, carpet, towels... More

We need to go for medical check up and that's why we choose this Hotel. Seems good as on Agoda gives 6.9 (I choose to gives 5 to 5.5). I make a mistake not to see clearly that i book via booking.com (though I clearly see that I book via Agoda.com). Price was expensive and I got it without breakfast... More

I had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. The staff were very helpful, the room was clean and I had an incredible view! It was easy getting around Georgetown, and there were taxis right out the front. There were nearby shopping centres, and the beach was a close walk. I had a wonderful stay ad would recommend it for... More

very old hotel, the problem is they look like don't want to replace the carpet room who knows how old already. Breakfast only pay 15 rm, but nothing to eat . the reason I stay here because it is located in front of the Adventist hospital, it's easy if you had to take your family for treatment.

This hotel showing its age a little, rooms were comfortable but the bed was not! (where do they get the rocks to fill the mattress?) Front staff were pleasant enough but did not know much about local amenities Its a fair distance from old georgetown, 30-40 ringit by cab. There are two large malls within 15min walking time which offer... More
