I had a good coffee, toast and egg for my breakfast which already included in the room price. Might stay again in the... More

Stayed 4 nights in december.start with the good points: +fair price since many other hotels were full and it has a nice central location +staff (the guys that is), were very helpful and very polite. they compensate for the leave-me-alone-attitude of "The" lady: a heavily made-up smartphone addict that acted rude in a haughty way, like a drunk diva. you...

My family of 4 were there last week for 2 nights and we had such a memorable stay. The place was clean, we loved the stairs, the wooden plank boards, the windows and courtyard especially. My two kids loved spending time at the quaint courtyard and we played card games there since there was no tv in the room. We... More

Perfect start to our Georgetown trip. We loved the hotel the minute we stepped in & our room was awesome (all rooms are I guess) it has the charm that you'd want in a location like Georgetown. The location is quite good, especially if you don't mind a little walk. The area is safe & clean, free wifi & friendly... More

Very friendly and helpful reception. Great staff at the bar - I wasn't even thinking about ice cold coffee until she suggested this while I was on my way out. The decor follows the heritage theme, but has presented an updated, clean version of this. The courtyard is quiet, shaded and gives it a nice little outdoor space. Likewise, the... More

Old refurbished trio of colonial shop houses, superbly located just a stroll away from the heart of Georgetown's own World Heritage sites and some modern shopping if you need it. A little rustic, with it's old furnishing but spacious, airy and quiet most of the day. If you want to avoid a troop of uniforms with plastic smiles, this is... More

For the price, you can't get a better deal. Good location with cafes, local food, bicycle rentals and antique/craft shops/ Very friendly and helpful staff. Polite. The rooms facing the road ARE noisy. Due to conservation ruling, they can't sound proof.. accordingly to their management. But hey, the rooms next door is double the price. No issues with aircon or... More

For a family of 3 Adults we booked a family room with a queen bed and a single bed. Our room on the second floor faced the main road, just above the lobby. Entering into the room seemed decent, opened the shutters and had a good view to the road and other shophouses. Room turned out to be a disaster!... More

This mid-range is centrally located in the heart of Georgetown, within walking distance to most of the Street Art and Wall Paintings. Two blocks from Komtar. It is a charming little hotel with tasteful decoration, do bear in mind that it is strictly barefoot for upstairs to protect the floorboard. Shoes are to be left at the bottom of the... More

If you are looking for a fancy hotel with a flat screen tv and rooftop swimming pool, this isn't the place for you. Staff was friendly, even letting me go into the kitchen to get buckets of ice at all hours. Location was great for everything i needed. No tv but the wifi and aircon were strong. I slept better...
