This hotel is located right at the city centre, within walking distance to a shopping mall and fast food outlet. If you like non halal chinese food, there are an array of food stalls and restaurant at the same road with the hotel. There are also two convenience shops within walking distance

Check in was a breeze and we got an early check-in around 12pm. Hotel staff was always friendly and helpful. Room is also very clean & well maintained. We also got a birthday cake as it was my birthday a few days later. The best thing about the hotel is that the hawker center and the food stalls at night is just beside the hotel. Super convenient and food is good as well. We did notice however that on a Tuesday night, some of the food stalls were not open. Maybe due to low crowd levels.

The staffs are incredibly professional, efficient and well mannered as well as helpful and quick to help in any way. The rooms are so well kept and very clean. The location of the hotel is absolutely strategic and many attractions are within walking distance such as malls and famous makan places, a huge bonus is that at night, all you need to do is walk out of the hotel lobby and you are in a bustling hawker center within a stone's throw away. It is one of the best places my family and I have stayed at and we will definitely be coming back soon!

I love this hotel in Georgetown because of its atmosphere and location. Rooms are nice, comfy, most with the view over the city which is really nice to looking at. There is even small swimming pool. Breakfast is pretty nice, so you can choose even malay or indian (try Roti Canai), fruits and more and more. Great about this hotel is location, not for from old part of town and just next door is famous streetfood market with a lot of delicious food! Definitely would love to stay again
