Located just outside the core heritage zone of George Town, this hotel offers easy walking access to the major attractions at a reasonable price. I stayed in the Deluxe room for 3 nights. The room was cosy, however, my only gripe was that for a hotel that is fairly new, there were a number of defects like the taps on the sink not secured and another tap head that had broken. Also, a lamp at the dressing table would have been useful. Food-wise, not an issue, as there are many street foods available around the hotel area. Just ask the reception and they will even provide you with a food map. Staff at the hotel were very helpful. They provided advice on the local bus services and when i left the hotel at 6am to get up to Penang Hill to catch the sunrise, they even prepared breakfast to go.
