This is a new hotel and it shows. Bathroom lacked tissue, soap (but had a toothbrush.) Room is so small one could open the door from the far side of the bed. No refrigerator or minibar but asked for a security deposit up front. I guess you get what you pay for, but the hotel next door (Sentral) is a better bet.

Room Tip: I did not see a good room to chose from.

I stayed in a window double bedroom, basically there are no much view to look at so probably window is not necessary. This is a new hotel so overall is pretty clean. Parking is limited, may need to park at the roadside.

There is no shower screen/ curtain in the toilet, toilet will easily get wet after shower.
Small room and there are some noise coming out from the aircon.

Basic toiletries provided, no hairdryer.
Additional cost for extra pillows.
Good location.
Value for money.

We stayed here for a week whist in Georgetown and enjoyed our stay here.
Our room was very clean and comfortable, everything was good about it except the shower didn't have a door on it so when you shower the whole bathroom gets totally soaked.
The staff were very helpful and there's tonnes of places to eat nearby!

HelicoNia opened in July 2013 thus is very new. Small room but very clean and comfy with big queen sized bed and clean toilet. Paid a little extra $3 for a room with a window and by luck got one right at the corner on the 4th floor with a beautiful view of Komtar. A very clean and neat looking hotel both inside and outside. Clean and comfortable room with free wifi.

Room Tip: Corner room 407 has a great window view of Komtar the tall building from a distance.

Was there for 1 Nite stay and enjoyed my stay. Staff was courteous and the checkin was swift.
Wish I would have got my room on the upper floors.
Since its a new hotel so the room and the bathroom looked nice.
The downside to this is the shower area has not blocking so when you have your shower the whole area gets wet.
My room was Deluxe Queen with window unfortunately the window was facing the inner part of the hotel patio area.
Comparetively the room space is small.

Room Tip: Pls go for rooms on the higher floor. Anything more than 3rd floor would give you great view of Penang Island
