    Hotel itself: avoid it. Georgetown: no idea why Lonely Planet put it in 4th top place to visit in 2016. My guess us they have started counting backwards. There are many more places worth a visit to see Asia heritage.

    We paid just a bit over £11 for one night as we just wanted somewhere to stay for the night. For the money spent I didn't expect too much from the Motel even after reading reviews about the issues with the toilet. Unluckily for us,...More

    The first night we were in the terrible room! Smelt bad (smoking), dirty. The second night was more better - another room. Quite clean, smelt normally. Bad wifi - does not work. Friendly personal. Possible to buy some basic food and cosmetics.

    No idea but I would avoid this place. The worst place I've stayed during my trip in MA & TH since Sep last year.
