Ryokan was really good.. in fact GREAT. We enjoyed our stay there last weekend. Spending 3D2N here, Ryokan really provides a real social atmosphere. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Went all out to meet our needs. Location is very good, smack right in the middle of Georgetown. Everything was within walking-distance. Convenient.
From the facade, Ryokan maintained the authentic old heritage pre-war shophouse look, but as we stepped in, they delivered a total different twist to the space. Very chic, raw + modern interior concept. Nicely-designed with good space delegation, complete with designer furniture and paintings/wall art to admire. Interesting.
Room was clean and spacious. Good beds and pillows were provided. A/C was great. Lockers and individual lightbox that comes with a powerpoint and good lights for reading.. unlike some other hostels were pretty dim. Comfortable beanbags to chill around, iPads for internet-surfing.. basically everything we possibly need was provided. We had no complaints.
It was overall an excellent experience.
Forget the hostel, Ryokan is more like a HOTEL..
We would definitely stay here again!!
