Traveled there During Thaipusam...since i booked this hotel on Agoda, a week before my travel date, this was the best hotel with good bargain. arrive to the hotel at night around 8...the downside parking is limited, just 6 parking space available..so your driving think again. we were greeted by the receptionist,,,we checked in and to our shock, we had to pay RM300 deposit. wen we asked, the receptionist in a rudely manner, said its for damage deposit and its the hotel policy, since we booked online. that is outrageous. i have travel many laces, none of them require a deposit. Wen we about to pay 300 she said since two rooms so 600..i was like ??????!@#$%^&**&^%$#@!?????? u got to be kidding me??? who travels with that much of cash if u have booked everything online??? lucky a senior staff said 300 would do. my friend and I had nly 300..we paid them and had to look for atm machiness after that.
Hotel is set out in ayellow bright atmosphere..liked it very much
Rooms were clean, cold,new and noise proof..that's d good part..your sleep is never disturbed...
Breakfast was not enterprising, basic nasi goreng and porridge,,may just have breakfast outside..
the pool is small..i think at 1 time only 10 ppl can fit in it..and its near the breakfast area...
there is small gym with a treadmill and some equipment..plus point fr this hotel
another bad point, there didnt have extra blankets...huh? hotel with no extra blankets? that's just bad service...
the hotel was n the center of mccalister road, so there is food 24 hours ;)
overall i had a good penang trip with my friends...but the hotel was just average..really need some improvement..but i would come n stay there due to its location
