I stayed here for three nights at Christmastime 2014. $24/night first two, $27 for Christmas Eve. The lady at the front desk during the day is first-class. Friendly, efficient, extremely helpful. When my taxi driver didn't show up (twice) for a planned island tour, she made many calls until she found a driver who was free and spoke English. I... More

Met by lovely and friendly front desk staff. Big family room. Hotel can do with a little refurbishment but there is not much to complain for the price you pay. Good WIFI reception. Good hawker food nearby.

Basic, very clean, hotel with spacious family room, central location. On the old side, so not being invested in much more, but for the price, it was fine. My praise is mostly for the lovely people behind the front desk. For example, when we told them we wanted to take the ferry to Langkawi, they called the ferry, reserved the... More

It was "established in 1967 and known by travellers the world over for its intimate atmosphere and excellent value". A Chinese hotel which would have been absolutely leading edge in 1967. Keys for the lights, hot showers and a lift! It is old now and so are the nice people at the desk who I suspect are the owners. They... More

A little worn down, but reasonably good choice for this price. Location is exellent. Rooms cleaner than in many hotels in this price range. The Chinese lady at the reception (owner?) is polite and helpful. Unfortunately the same can not be said about the young guy working there. A fridge in the room would be nice.

The location of the hotel is ok along Chulia Street but the premise is old and run down. I wouldn't have chosen this place if not for the sake of having all 40 of us under the same roof in the deluxe/family rooms.

I had a enjoyable stay. The late night receptionist wasn't friendly. He didn't want to be bothered. He wanted to sleep on the couch and not help with any questions. The water was hot and the room was clean as for budget hotels go. It is in a great location as well.
