This hotel is a great price, clean, and charming in an old school way. The service was wonderful, everyone at the front desk and reception area eager to help and offer advice and always smiling. One of the female employees even ran an umbrella out to me and my sister when we were caught in the rain across the street.... More

Hotel is very well organized, staff is very friendly and cooperative. They have an private parking garage. Rooms are as modern as you can expect from a good business hotel. The view from the roof terrace is very nice!

We drove to Penang from Perlis and it was instantly difficult to find parking. I had to circle around to find the hotels parking which needs to be a bit more noticeable. After parking your car you will definitely get lost trying to find the hotel lobby and then definitely get lost trying to find the car parking lot. You... More

All the charm and space of a 70s/80s built hotel with modern motel extras like free in room wifi and flat screen TV's. Slightly tired, more daggy than concerning. Great pool area with a generous 3.5 mtr depth, plus heated jet spa & kids pool. Epic rooftop bar and revolving restaurant are the icing on the cake. Friendly staff &... More

Check in process was a little slow as the check in guest relations personnel also has to attend to phone calls, otherwise it was okay.... More
