It was good for backpackers, not for family. Their room is very small, even doors can't properly open in some rooms! But as a whole, its satisfactory for those who wants to be in budget. They should improve room environment, by putting a fridge at least, so people can have chilled water at night or early morning. A 7eleven store... More

Dear samiwashek, Thank you for the review. Our location is great and coupled with affordable rates we are appealing to many budget conscious travelers. Our rooms are space efficient but we provide all the necessary essentials for a good night's sleep, including high quality spring mattresses (similar to those used by 5-star hotels) and attached power shower in every room....

Just only few walks to 7-11 and Starbucks. We also take very delicious chicken rice next to the hotel. Room is so small but price is very acceptable. We paid for Wifi at 12 RM but very poor signal. Quick check in and check out. We will come back for sure.

The hotel is within a nice location. Only few minutes to go to Gurney Plaza and Paragon mall between rm$15-18. Walking distance of 10-15mins to Komtar. A short walk to Starbuck next door, Giant, KFC etc. The hotel's partner tour agent was worthy to get you around town or other distant attraction or the Airport. Few things that needed to... More

Its value for money and strategic location. However, there is no sound proof. Heard noices from the corridor and upstairs, so it wasnt a good sleep even though the bed is big. But overall, it was ok given the price paid is cheap.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Staying true to our unique no frills concept, we provide you a good night's sleep at outstanding value. Our hotels come with high quality beds, power showers, 24-hour security system, and are conveniently located near transportation hubs and popular local attractions. Unnecessary costs are kept at bay by eliminating facilities that you might not need such as swimming pools, gyms, spa rooms etc. Stay within walking distance to the famous dining places of George Town like the famous Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow. Penang's most famous beach, Batu Ferringhi, is half an hour's drive away from our hotel. The famous hawker centre along Gurney Drive is a must try, and so is the New World Park located right next door to us. ... more   less
