The hotel is located right next to the bus interchange and a huge mall. Hence, it is rather convenient if you are considering taking bus from the airport. However, the vicinity is rather dusty and disorganized. Upon stepping out of the hotel's main entrance, you'll be engulfed in hot and polluted air. However, most parts of Penang is that way.
The service staff were very friendly and greeted guests consistently. They were helpful and pleasant making the experience very comforting. The hotel also had a small pool on the 4th floor, which is perfect based on sheer heat during the day.
Room was old but sufficient for a comfortable stay.
Very good experience on the whole
