We took 603 from Penang Bus Station and stopped at Jermal. Ask your driver to drop you there. You may find some buildings or shops, just continue walking and you'll see the building. After check-in, we walked to Jalan Raja Uda which was only 15-20 minutes (via Moch Saad). At night, we bought nasi kamdar zamrud, just 5-10 mins walk... More

This is my experience. Eventhough they have a good offer in term of money, but the maintenance and cleanliness is like a backpackers room. Only the parking is good, other than that is worse for me. If the hotel wish to gain regular customer, pls improve on the cleanliness and amenities first.

This is the second time my family of four stay here. No improvement from the first time I stayed here last year. Same disappointing bedding, worn out mattress, stained wall, poor sound proofing door, air-cond which still working good but noisy, very old but still functioning TV, not very clean bathroom with hot shower. Standard Twin room will be @... More

Be careful with this hotel as the rate on booking is not what to pay, but actually there is some hidden charge of taxes (of course, you have to pay the tax at all the hotels, but this hotel is not honest to include it in the published rate like most of other hotels) ! We felt like ripped off... More

The place is well worn and needed refurbishment. Room has basic furnishing but all the furniture are old and tired. The room I stayed in even has a wall patch that hasn't been repainted! Service level of front desk staff needs to be improved. The only nice thing about the place was the good water pressure!

This is a budget business hotel (you will agree with me when you see the room). We paid RM88 per night walk in rate for standard room with RM5 breakfast voucher. If you go through some internet booking agent, it will cost RM75 per night. Cafe serves simple Malaysian breakfast start from RM5. The hotel is located at the corner... More

This is one of the worst hotels that I have stayed at and for the price, is ridiculous. Not only are the carpets stained and worn, the walls are filthy and I saw 3 rooms until there was one that did not have a foul smell. Breakfast is only served from 8:30am and the hotel is not near to anything... More

I CANNOT agree with the hotel's tagline in its website that claims 'where satisfaction exceeds expectation'. First of all, when I opened my room (407) I saw conspicuous cracks on the walls. The hotel seemed to made an attempt to fix it but it is not properly painted. Second, the carpet is dirty. There is a big stain on it... More
