We spent 3 nights here in a room with a window. It was small but adequate, very clean with a good shower and decent Wifi. The location is 5 minutes walk away from Komtar bus station and about 15 minutes walk to the historical part of Geogetown. Good friendly security guy at entrance and the cleaners also were nice.

The location is just amazing and the people from the front desk to housekeeping, are just as amazing too. Bubbly, warm and friendly and very helpful too. Only gripe i have is the bathroom layout, really weird and awkward. Other than that, it is a lovely place to stay.

Good location near food outlets and bus interchange. Room has non locking sliding washroom door, no place to hang clothes. Has desk and kettle, comfortable enough for short stays. Air con is good, relatively quiet. WiFi stable, covered and guarded parking lots.

Small room without complimentary breakfast but still consider reasonable to me due to its location rate and cleanliness. Door hinges found damaged and reported and hope that it can be changed do as to allow guests to have a peaceful sleep. Unable to secure a single bed and lose some enjoyment though I can put the 2 bed together. Staff... More

The hotel is very close to the many spots you can see in Georgetown. It is clean and the staff is helpful. Rooms are pretty small and there is nothing else really special about the hotel. If you, like me, just need a roof above your head in a clean place, this is your choice
