it's an old hotel but well-maintained (most of the hotel in penang is old enough, the latest ones surely cost a lot).
the staff is incredible.
the room is fabulous specially the view (we were on the 12th floor).
the room is fully equipped with 2 large twin-beds that i enjoyed so much.
they just need to change the carpet to wooden floor and the bath tub to just a shower room would be better.
the internet is free whether using wifi connection (in the lobby) or through WLAN (in the room).
the location is great.
i'll surely comeback to this hotel whenever i visit penang (which is mostly once a year)
