Greeted by friendly Reception when my parents & I arrived on 9 Apr. Check in process is fast & smooth. Hotel room is big with a queen & single bed.
Breakfast spread is humble. It can get pretty crowded at certain timings as the cafe is not very big.
Walk 200m to the main road is where you can find the night street food stalls. Closed on Wed. 1st Avenue, Pranglin Plaza is about 15min walk for healthy adults. My mum has weak legs so it took us double the time to get there. 1st Avenue is where all the international brands are. Pranglin Plaza is local shopping mall. Wisma Gama is where locals will go. There is a supermarket & departmental store there.
Taxi is not easily hailed on Penang roads. This is a headache as I have 2 old people with me.
The only negative comment is the toilet design. Really lousy! Shower room should be built with a door to contain the water within the shower area. However, shower area is at the moment you step into the toilet where the basin is too. Toilet cubicle is instead separated by a door. The floor is very wet & slippery after shower & especially dangerous to anyone regardless old or young.
The Hotel should really do something since the toilet structure cannot be changed.
Overall, it's a pleasant stay for my parents & I. Love Penang!
