Booked at the last minute so we didn't have many options for our budget. I picked the hotel for it's location - the core of the town pretty much walking distance from the hotel. Most of the buses pass right by the hotel or the nearby Penang or Transfer road. The hotel is old, but the room has the standard... More

This Hotel might not look much from the outside, but once you enter, you will find friendly helpful staff with a very welcoming attitude. I read the reviews but when i initially saw the place I was a little disappointed. However they rooms are big, they have a nice breakfast on the 5th floor and the staff from reception to... More

The hotel staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are big. However wifi gets extremely slow in the evening. Basically don't have overly high expectations, you get what you pay for. If you're on a budget or really just looking for a place to sleep at night or will be out for most of the day, then you can... More

To be honest i wasn't expecting much given that I'd paid $30US per night. It was in a dirty old street just outside of the historic centre of Georgetown. Staff rude, the bathroom was abysmal with rust stains, no water pressure and frankly I'd seen better bathrooms in a backpackers. Lobby was nice with good facilities such as internet, books... More

Quiet spot in downtown Georgetown. The room was large and very clean. whilst It is old there and many pluses to overshadow the oldness. The bathroom is large, has a bathtub and an excellent shower. There was a lounge and coffee table and fridge. The staff go all out to help. I recommend this as a budget hotel. There are... More

When we had to do our three-monthly visa run to Penang my partner and I opted to stay here rather than the other hotel we usually stay at. The price was better and Arthur the manager was polite and helpful when emailing (compared to the other hotel's staff). The hotel is in a great location, close to restaurants and shopping.... More

I take onboard some of the previous comments, and yes the hotel could do with a few quid spending on it. However staff are what will make your stay here pleasant, they will try to help you no matter what the problem. We spent a week here and it is ideally located to reach most thing in Penang with ease,... More

The hotel is very simple and old but it is very well located. Also they have wifi free. The shower is not so good and the flush dont work properly. In the breakfast is included cereals and toast, if you want something more you can pay extra.
