Slap bang in the middle of Georgetown so lots of great food and sights within easy walking distance.
The room was a bit dated, but it was very clean so appeared well looked after. There were no drinks in the mini-bar (despite a RM100 deposit being taken) and there was no in-room safe which I would have expected from a hotel in this price range. We did get complimentary bottled water and the morning newspaper.
We were both impressed with the staff who were not only very helpful but also seemed genuinely happy in their work, which is not something you always come across in the hotel industry. We got very good info on the buses and the concierge even flagged down a taxi from the street and negotiated the price for our journey to the airport!
Overall we enjoyed our stay and plan to return here on our next Penang trip
