We came in 2016 as a couple. The hot water wasn't working at first in our room, but they fixed it soon enough. The reception staff were extremely friendly, which was a big plus, and spoke good English. Most annoying thing was the Wi-fi didn't reach our room, despite it having what appeared to be a router in the room...

We stayed at the Boutique Residence hotel on a short trip to Penang and were very impressed with it.. The hotel was part of a row of shop houses that have been converted into a niche boutique hotel. Very clean and exceptionally friendly service. There are limited parking places and the roadside parking, right in front of the hotel, could...

Location was nice but nothing worked! The owners have apparently changed and fired most of the staff and the remaining staff can only say sorry and then do nothing about any problems!!! Our air conditioner had a big rattle and sounded like a plane taking off but couldn't cool the room. The swimming pool had a film and pools of...

Small, cosy hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The room was spacious, so was the bathroom. The air conditioning was not that cold but the rest more than made up for it. Good location as well in the middle of Georgetown. Walking distance to eating places at Chulia Street and other attractions in the area.
