this was on of the best budget hotel ever I stayed (below 3 star). Room was cheap; only RM88 for deluxe. Clean & simple set up. Location was great as I'm looking for a budget hotel in the middle of the town. hidden from the heavy traffic of Georgetown. Things need to be improve: appreciate if provided with a mini...

The hotel is very clean and the location is not too bad (20 min walk or so to the main attractions in Georgetown). Reception staff were not overly friendly but were just about polite. There was nearly a problem checking in as they insisted on the passport of the person who had booked rather than any other guest (most hotels...

Location - great city location. Away from main road, easy to find and easy to park your vehicle. Room - Superior Queen room was spacious for 2. Sink is outside the toilet (right side of bed) but not an issue. Standing shower has regular water heater but its shower curtain has a peculiar smell. Multi-purpose soap provided at the sink...

I've book 2 rooms for 1 Queensize Bed room and 2 Single Beds room, 4 pax staying only RM332 nett for 2 night! The room is clean and acceptable spacious, no problem for adding an extra bed for third pax. Bring your own extra tissue, hairdryer, and shampoo as hotel provided 2-in-1 shower gel only.

This is one of the better budget hotels I've been to. It is qutie new, mostly clean, simple, and functional. There were a few tiny flying bugs which seems to be coming out from the drain in the bathroom. Still, in a tropical environment, budget hotels can be a lot worse. The walls are quite thin as well, as it...

This hotell must be brand new. Everything is clean and fresh and they rooms are very nice and comfortable. The location is pretty ok, the historical areas are within walking distance. But as it is very hot in Malaysia, u might wan´t to take a taxi on sunny days as the walk is about 20min. The hotel don´t serve breakfast,...

I would say that this hotel is small without any f&b outlet as it provides accommodations only. However, it's not crucial for them to have one as there are plenty of hawker centres within walking distance from this hotel. Upon our checking-in, we received warm welcome from receptionist which is out of our expectations as we had yet experienced it...

Overall the room is comfortable with a great value. However, we tried to check with the Reception for late check out with half day charge at 6pm which was then declined as the latest time is 5pm with the charges. The Receptionist even answered that we did not force you to extend your stay with us. What an EXCELLENT answer!!
