We made reservations well ahead only to be told on arrival that the rooms were given to someone else with no further explanation. When we insisted further that we had made reservations, we were then allocated rooms in the smoking floor which considerably less that ideal given the strong odour of tobacco.
Parking space is very limit. We had to wait over an hour for a parking bay.
I would rate this as the worst hotel I have stayed in Penang thus far.
