Near Chinese neighborhood (around 15 min) and historical downtown. It has no front beach view but near of it. Good spot to morning jogging at the beach. If you want to go to Ferringhi take taxi. Around 40 RM each trip. Big and comfortable room. Speedy Internet.

Good location for what I was doing here in Penang. Rooms clean and staff friendly, great breakfast buffet. For the price you can't beat it. Many bars and restaurants near the hotel, just a 2 minute walk.

I stayed at the superior room for 2 nights. I had thought that the room would be cramped, but it's quite spacious for 2 (asian) people. I love the room decor. Very classy. I just found the slippers in the toilet very weird and inconsistent with the hotel's class... Time to have own signature slippers perhaps? The breakfast buffet was... More

Room and amenities is good. Old wings a bit empty and feel unwanted. Strategic place in the heart of the town. Short distance walking to any food places or entertainment outlet around the area. Explore surrounding area you can find more interesting places.
