Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was good given that the room was quite cheap. The room window looked at a wall two meters away, but again for the price paid no complaints about the room. Location was not so close to the historical old town, but bus terminal was close.

Having stayed at hotel Sentral in KL so was expecting same here but it was better than KL. Rooms were clean and nice. Staff was supportive and we were greeted with welcome drink which was nice. Attractions (listed on Penang attractions) are bit far nearer to little India but if you take bus ride it's just 10 mins and 3... More

Location of the hotel is excellent. Hawker food stall at New Lane opposite the road from the Hotel just 2mins walk. Penang Road 5mins walk away before you... More

Reza at the front desk was a life-saver, arranging for a taxi to bring forgotten items from the hotel to the airport before we departed. So helpful! Rooms are cozy, some a bit smaller than others. Showers are pretty basic. Beds are comfortable enough. Definitely need to take taxis to get to sites/food markets.

The hotel is located very central.. just in the middle of burmah road and mcallister road.. It's very near to the New Lane hawker market.. Penang Road is just around 5-10 mins walking distance from this hotel (this is where all the foods are. Cendol/Nasi Kandar Line Clear/Bee Hwa Cafe). If you wanna take bus to bukit bendera or kek...

The hotel lobby and lift are small, rooms are dirty with ants crawling around. Housekeeping took their own sweet time to clean up our rooms. The staffs kept banging the door early in the morning. No place to keep our toiletries in the bathroom. Everything was bad.

We did appreciated this hotel - good value for good price, nice room, for somebody it can be small, but for those who want it basically just for overnight is a very good choice. Big bathroom. Good breakfast, omelet cooked directly for each customer separately. The only thing we didn´t appreciated was the overloaded internet connection.
