Checked in yesterday and went off to my room. Unfortunately there were a number of ants on the bed so I returned to reception. Staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating, they very quickly changed me to new room directly across the hall, sent a security guard with me to help me move my stuff and also gave me a Wi-Fi credit to make up for the inconvenience.
Yes the rooms are looking a little bit tired, but I really don't care too much about the decor, especially at such wonderful prices! The beds are super comfortable, the showers nice and hot or nice and cold (depending on how you like it) and the location is close to everything you need. Local bus stops across the road, Giant supermarket only a few mins walk away at Penang Plaza and there's a well-stocked 7-eleven on the doorstep.
It is easy to get taxis from here also. Breakfast in the lobby is pretty good too.
New world park hawker stalls, Starbucks, pharmacy and old town white coffee are literally next door, there is plenty of food options across the road, a laundry service also just across the road, and KOMTAR is like 10 minutes walk away.
Great location, awesome staff, great price - what more do you need?
