The room looked cosy and clean. However, the decoration on the wall was a lil bit scary. The room card system was not working, luckily the worker was at the lobby most of the time so they can open the door for us. The aircon was problematic as well. It was under service when we just reached, and it kept... More

Reception staff very friendly & helpful. The standard double room is small but has everything, the deluxe double room is huge. The beds very comfortable. The location is great, set back from the road, so no road noise, walking distance from shops, Little India, street art etc. Had to rely on staff opening one room as they couldn't update the... More

You can't beat the location, but no breakfasts and having to rely on staff to open our hotel room each time we came back because the lock was broken let this place down. Ideal for us was the parking right in the middle of Georgetown. Rooms clean enough and air conditioning very good.

The hotel name sounds lovely, it is in a heritage building and it is centrally located however, these are the only positive things I have to say. The room was barely a hotel room and more like a hostel. Our room was apparently 'dulux', i dread to think what a basic room looks like. It felt dirty-the towels were grey,... More

We went here because of the good review. The front desk was good. But at night we had mosquitoes. We stayed for 2 nights. The second night we had to shift room because the hotel staff said the need to do something with the toilet. I was asleep that time late afternoon and had to pack all our stuff and... More

This is the right stay if you are looking for something in the middle of Georgetown! Everything is basically good, and they are doing good job on cleanliness (although the small side table it's a bit old, and some unremovable small stain on furniture)... It's pretty comfy thou! ^_^ One drawback, which it will be perfect if there's some air... More

Amazing heritage building. Nice and bright, well maintained, clean and friendly staff. This hotel is within a few minutes walk of everything including the market, many food outlets and the famous street art murals. The only problems we had was the fact that the door card access was not working for anyone's doors. This was ok though because the friendly... More

The hotel location is very good. Very near to famous landmarks and lots of food and drinks variety around the area. Everywhere is within walking distance. The hotel room is clean and the shared bathroom is also clean and user friendly. However, due to the structure of the hotel (ie wood panel floorboards, it is very noisy when people walk... More
