This was my third time to Penang, and I have always stayed in this hotel and in its junior suite. My friend(s) wanted somewhere near Gurney Drive, and this may be the best choice unless you have much more budget for G Hotel.
The suites are of arguably low rates, and are cosy and spacious enough. The hotel is near the temple with Sleeping Buddha (20-min walking down the road), and Gurney Plaza (15-min cutting through residential bungalows at the back of the hotel).
Other good points include old-school coffee shops nearby for breakfast, a KFC restaurant next door, convenience stores below, a bus stop and a taxi stand directly outside the hotel.
My one slight complaint is the swimming pool which was disturbingly milky during my stay. The gym is serviceable and well-attended though.
