I stayed at hotel Malaysia. From the outside, this hotel looks like a budget motel but believe me, it was a renovated hotel from the inside. I totally hate the way they built their toilet. Why on earth you built transparent glass wall for the toilet. I thought toilet should be a private place. The toilet sit was shaky. You... More

The room is nice and spacious but I think the towel should change as it looks old. Overall, the hotel is actually old hotel but the management just renovated it which looks new. It is just nice to stay and with short walking distance, we can reach the famous chendul stall, market and restaurants.

Currently staying at this hotel. We arrive this afternoon 11th of July, and the room looked nice. Then we looked at the bed : dirty sheets. Then we entered in the bathroom : hairs in the sink, water and hair still in the shower like someone just took a shower. We asked the reception to clean the room and they... More

At the price, it's a nice hotel, although a little dated. Was undergoing some renovations, so was a tad noisy. Spacious rooms with good bathrooms. They need to throw away the linen ware and get new ones. Service is pretty decent. Located in central George Town..

Except from the music from Red Garden it was nice hotel. We extend our stay 2 times. Nice staff. Nice and clean rooms. Most of the time the internet was poor but down in the lobby it was okay. The hotel is now under renovation but on floor 5 we didn't hear so much from it. I hope they will... More

The room was decent but could hear so clearly the loud karaoke music of the bars (which only stopped at 1am) opposite the hotel. No wifi in spite of the hotel's promises that there was free wifi in the rooms and everyone we spoke to regarding this issue just kept asking us to keep trying and then at 11pm suggested... More

This hotel are always be my 1st choice to stay in Georgetown. Easier to get to this hotel by using the free shuttle bus from the jetty terminal and local bus from airport. walking distance to most of all tourist spot. Be prepared with noise as there is a club nearby.

Very limited parking for the big hotel standard. 24hrs convenience store next to it. Walking distance to foot reflexology. 10-15mins walk to the famous breakfast area in Agryll Road or Transfer Road. Room condition is comfy enuff.

Haven't been here in a while, so was pleasantly surprised that it has been recently renovated and refurbished. The security has also been improved. The price has also been raised, but then everything is more expensive these days. The receptions staff could do with a little more interpersonal skills, but the support staff are as friendly and helpful as always.... More
