A good budget hotel in a great location in Penang. The staff were very friendly and our double room was large and clean with the hottest showers we've had in a long time! Its close to some good hawker centres - we enjoyed Red Garden just off Jalan Penang - a 5 min walk from the hotel.

It has a little library of travel guides at the lobby. It is really basic but better than staying in a hostel. Well located near the busy Penang Road.... More
