Reviewed November 30, 2012

Staffs overall good, room still ok for the value we paid for. Bed ok, shower room was a bit too small.
At late nite, many Malay boys with bike hanging around at hotel Lobby area , felt very insecure. Limited parking space.
A real budget hotel with a clean outlook.

The hotel staff were very friendly and the rooms were smallish but clean.Our requests were taken care of quickly,and we were given(correct) directions to all the attractions we wanted to visit,which are mostly accessible on foot ,or by bus/taxi.Many historiscal monuments and eateries close by,as it is in the middle of Georgetown heritage zone.

2nd time staying at this hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Gives a welcome feeling.
The room is very small, with minimal walking space available. Wardrobe is too small, unable to put the clothes in properly.

If you are looking for a budget hotel, this is okay. But don't expect too much.

Staff was friendly when I arrived and the reception area nice and tidy. When I got to my room I could see big stains on the walls and the curtains. The wardrobe was dusty. My towels were smelly and had stains on them and I had to ask them to be changed. The ones I got were neither crispy white. Also the bed linen had stains. This was unfortunately also the noisiest hotel experience I have had so far. The doors of the rooms are really noisy when they close. So the noise level really depends on how considerate the fellow travellers sharing the floor are. I was very unfortunate and I had to try to deal with it with ear plugs. There is also some noise from the traffic.
