4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very good price quality! Very big rooms and bathrooms. Newly refurnished. Staff is friendly and sincere, in particular the bell boys. Location near the historic city is perfect. Breakfast is average, but fair seen the price. Only comment: coffee not nice. Could recommand this hotel when visiting Penang

Heard that hotel is newly refurbished. Got the family room with 4 beds, only minus was that 1 bathroom shared by 4 adults. Rooms, staffs, amenities are pleasant. Breakfast was superb! But we can't eat all the selections, merely tried a bit of each. Coffee and pastry were great! Check in and check out we're fast like under 10 mins.... More

Just behind the E&O hotel, walking distance to the old part of Georgetown although on the average day a rickshaw or taxi is a better option than walking if you prefer not to be drenched in sweat in 15 minutes. Pool is adequate for cooling off, and has afternoon shade. Rooms big but not exceptional. Bed a bit hard for... More

The hotel is very much centralized in which many attractions are just nearby. I have stayed in the Deluxe room, and it was great and spacious. Breakfast was also quite good. Most importantly, the hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating as I was having stomach pains on my last day in Penang, and the hotel accepted my request for... More

Great location. Limited knowledge of the area from the staff. Gave us wrong direction and the other one did not know anything about the place we asked. The cleaning service forgot to put some of the bathroom kit 2 days in a row. And the bed are hard. For 4 star hotels they can do better.

Excellent customer service at reception. Our room got upgraded from Deluxe to Grand deluxe because it was my boyfriend's birthday. Large flat screen tv and huge bathroom with jazucci bathtub. Close to jetty and red garden food market, a bit far from public transport. Red garden market opens at night and features live singing and a variety of international cuisines.... More

Checked in before dinner and popped up to the hotel's roof top bar for some beer. The layout and design was good with great views of the sea and streets below. There is also a revolving restaurant on the same level.
