I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It was designed and is owned by a well known Malay architect. The rooms are exquisite with unique artwork and designer furniture. I agree with most of the review by Shick1, so I won't repeat all the details. I don't agree with luke warm ratings given to this hotel by two of the reviewers, as this is truly an outstanding hotel. I live by a 5 star hotel in Colorado and I have traveled widely. If you travel to Penang, you are making a mistake if you don't stay at this hotel for it's quality and location. We stayed later at a so-called boutique hotel in Kuala Lumpur and it didn't compare to this truly lovely inn. In addition, the staff was friendly and helpful in every way. I even had my hair cut in the Salon/Spa by a Vidal Sassoon-trained hairdresser, for half of the amount I pay in the US. The owners have built a green environmental hotel and are contributing to the art scene of the city.
