Seriously it needs a major refurbishment to keep up with the present time. Outdated furnishing, tired and 80 & 90s furnishing. Hotel interior is too woody and doesn't jive with current time. No bath towel when check in, need to request for it. Rather convenient and strategically located at Gurney Drive. As for the rest of the services, too short... More

if ever there was a hotel still living in its early Eighties hey day then this is the place. An impressive but dated entrance lobby is the silver lining hiding the false gold within. Having booked a double room only to be told that there was only a twin room available was the start of our interesting 2 night stay.... More

The hotel is located on the end of Gurney Drive which is nearer to Georgetown, which gives access to buses going to Georgetown. Taxis are also not difficult to get. The room, while spacious and pretty clean, is getting dated, and the carpet needs a thorough shampooing or changing, to return the shine to it. Would have given it 4... More

That Hotel has everything you need when you are on a business trip. Anyway it has nothing else than that. Service was very good. Anyway you cannot compare it to other hotels at Georgetown that are more historic and atmospheric.

Had a nice 3 nights stay with my family. Although got the rooms a little late but not a matter at all. The jacuzzi is amazing and as well as the sauna. However me and my family were quite disappointed on the third night we couldn't use the jacuzzi as we came back around 9.30pm. Jacuzzi closed at 10pm but... More

Our visit to George Town was enhanced by the fact that we stayed a little outside of the noise and hubbub of downtown. We were a lottle worried that we might miss the quaint ambiance of the Old Town by not staying right downtown, but, after arriving we were very happy with our choice of hotels. This hotel was everything... More

The hotel is well located at Gurney Drive. We just stayed 1 night here, found out that it's complete & spacious. Service responded goodly in our late midnight call. Friend said that the afternoon buffet is good with suzi, unfortunately we didn't try it.

When I checked in via trivago website, they gave me a booking number. Unfortunately this reservation did not transpire in the hotel system when I checked in. The front desk staff by name of Ms May Tang and Ms Nian Ting did a commendable job. They went through the system over and over but they couldn't find my booking. They... More
