Stayed for two nights at this hotel. Checked in late evening and the check in process is slow it took about 20 minutes to complete the process. We booked for 2 Standard Double Room. The room decoration just simple but toilet a bit rundown, the shower head spoilt and the shower curtain is dirty. The pool is great but when request for swimming towels at the reception, we were informed that "No More Swimming Towels" can get it next morning. Next morning when we asked again for swimming towel at the reception, again they told me "No More Swimming Towels". No greetings from Receptionist whenever you passed the Reception Counter, but the housekeeper are very friendly. Totally No WIFI reception in room, called up reception to enquired and asked for assistance and their feedback "Is Like that", feel disappointed. The hotel location is away from old Penang Road but easy access to all types of restaurants/food and other parts of Penang.
