Location great, quick walk to everything, including Chulia St, Komtar/Prangin Mall down Penang Road where the bus stop is for public buses to most places of interest; ask reception staff for one of their bus timetables.

Location excellent, in the heart of Georgetown, close to bus stops, bus terminal central hub (Komtar), taxis, tourist sights, local food (Jalan Penang, Lebuh Kimberley, Lebuh Chulia, etc), F&B chillout district (near E&O Hotel), shops, shopping malls. All within easy leisurely walking distance. Hotel is... More

Its in a good location, the staff is very helpful and speaks English and good with directions. Its an old hotel don't expect much, the breakfast mainly consists of cereal and toast and jam. Beds are small, so make sure you check out the beds before getting in. Over all for cheap price place is quite good

Shower doesn't work, but spout is high enough to kneel under and get a sort of shower. Breakfast included if you just want toast, you have to pay for eggs. Lobby nice looking, but once you leave that area you go to paint peeling mold growing rooms. They tell you if you don't want to reuse towel, put on floor,... More
