It's located near to most of the attractions in Georgetown, and a decent dimsum restaurant (day)/ Mee goreng shop (night) is just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Parking might be a problem as no parking is provided by the hotel, however you can still find parking further down along the street.

affordable hotel with strategic location, surrounded with lots of delicious choices of street foods. Located near Giant and nagore square (5 min walk). The hotel room was fine. It was clean and so comfy but the interior is old and mostly made of wood. The lighting really need a major improvement, its too dark and yellow. Then, the wifi on...

First, you are paying for a budget hotel and don't expect a spacious room with lots of facilities. This is more of a place you drop your bags and go out exploring the city. I had been staying in this hotel since its opened. Its is just stone throw away to get awesome foods along Jalan McAlistair or New Lane....

Stay with my boss during business trip. Found the hotel room very nice and clean. The down side about the room is the lighting not bright enough to do paper work. As my boss commented the current lighting is to dim to do work. Need improvement.

My last stay was a couple of years back, and it's good to see everything has remained more or less the same. It's quite clean, and the bed is comfortable, and the standard inclusions, while basic, they cover for everything that's reasonably needed. The location is within walking distance to the food places on Jalan Mcalister, Komtar, and the nearby...

Stayed here several times now and so far no complaints on this place. It is located in the heart of Penang, giving you easy access to anywhere you want to go to. The price is very reasonable and cheap too. The room is very clean and simple, with all the basic amenities and facilities provided. They have hot shower, TV,...

Not a bad hotel at all for the value. We chose a budget hotel for our stay in Penang and it served its purposes. Our room was quite small so we upgraded to the next class so the 3 of us could be more comfortable. The room had pretty strong AC as well. Located in a good area convenient to...
