There are lots of boutique hotels springing up in Georgetown and there are many more coming as they cotton on to the fact that not everyone wants to rough it in Chinatown in a dodgy backpackers down love lane! However they don't really come cheap and we were on a budget so when we found this place it was a bargain! It's half the price of other heritage hotels and admittedly not as fancy but it's in a great location in chinatown set just back from the main road behind some other backpackers places so it's not as noisy as it could be. In fact the only noise is from the hotel doors shutting because it is an old building with high ceilings and it does tend to echo but you have to accept that there's not much they can do about the acoustics and you don't hear noise through the walls it's just the corridors. The rooms are very clean, simple modern style but the bathrooms are wet rooms and small but bathrooms aren't given a lot of space in a lot of Malaysian hotels we found and they are often wet rooms but the shower was good and again all very clean. The rooms themselves are small but they have everything you need, fridge, tv etc and with all that georgetown has to offer i doubt you'll be sitting in your room all day anyway! The staff are very friendly and helpful and they always greet you with a smile. They have free wifi, bit slow but then again we found that in most places. All in all this is a bargain heritage place in a central location with lovely staff and it's clean and comfortable so unless you want motel style big and chic or pricey heritage opulence you can't go wrong with this place. Book it!
