“Good Business Stay Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Anyone on Business - 2 nights or 3. It's a good place to stay. Bed Sheets are clean and Hotel upkeep is still up-to-speed!!! The Hotel Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good but going out to eat in Penang was better!!

Room Tip: Book online!

nice boutique hotel to stay. nice food at the cafe. not expensive hotel but worth it. the wifi also good, no jacking
it close to the GEORGETOWN town. Many places to eat.
You know you are in Penang by staying in this hotel cause it tells the environment.. very antic and traditional view.

Location : Excellent. location on one of the main street of Georgetown, plenty of car park spaces,
Room : Good. Nice room, comfortable bed; drawback : air condition a bit slow to get the room cool, pillow too soft.
Food : Nice buffet breakfast with plenty of variety, fried rice, porriage, toast, eggs, a simple breakfast with mixture of Western and local delicacies. We sat at open air area outside, nice and with light breeze; but if you hate flies, sit inside the cafe.
Staff and service : Friendly staff at Reception area and guard at car park, helpful kitchen staff serving breakfast.

Stayed there for 4 nights. Checked into a twin sharing room, though the room is a little small, the room, bedsheets and toilet is very clean. Bed a little too soft to my liking. Reception and staff are friendly and helpful.

Very close to good food places and malls.

The location seems good as it is near to the town (in driving distance), ample parking spaces are provided. The friendly guard greeted us everytime when we went out or came back to the hotel. The room is clean, and equipped with basic tea/coffee facilities, flatscreen tv with limited channels, and wifi (not too fast). The hot water for bathroom was not really hot in the morning, but it was hot in the evening time. Hair dryer is available upon request. This is a comfy and cosy budget hotel!

Chose this place as it is next to the Loh Guan Lye Hospital. Room was 110 MYR on promo (no breakfast included). For a little more than a guesthouse price we got a room that looked more like a business hotel. Pillow, sheets, towels in very good condition. Room was even equipped with tea/coffe making facilities! Flatscreen TV (no english channels though), fast wifi, very nice bathroom with hot shower and loads of water pressure. We also noticed a "funny" smell in the room (paintthinner ? aircon?) but since we stayed only 2 days not a big issue. Loads of foodstalls within walking distance. Sure one of the best deals of Penang in that price range.

Overall a clean place but there was a funny smell in the room, it lasted throughout our stay. Breakfast was okay. A bonus was that cheap car rental was arranged at the reception. The location is somewhat outside Georgetown.
