“convenient, confortable and new”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Rather new hotel. Clean and comfortable. Convenient location close to Komtar. Rooftop Garden commands good view of this part of Penang. Numerous food stalls just round the corner at Lebuh Kimberley. Stay in 105 without a window. There seems to be smoker staying in next door, although the whole hotel is non-smoking.

The hotel locates near Komtar and buffer zone of Georgetown. Very easy for travelling!! and there are some restaurants near the hotel in the evening. The hotel staff are nice and the room is clean and comfortable.

This is my second time staying here. Overall I'm satisfied with the place. The bed is comfy, toilet is clean and everything else is ok except there's no window in the room. Location is great and it's definitely value for money. Will come back and stay here again.

This hotel got me suprised. The picture is not telning the truth, I thinks it's even better. The location is good, chinatown and little india is nearby. Also penang mall and the new mall 1st avenune. The staff is very friendly & helpful with questions and facitillites. The rooms may be small, but great if you just want a room for a great price. Very clean and modern. We stayed 4 nights and got one for free, which is a great deal!
I will definetly stay here again!

The hotel is new and clean. The room has a comfortable bed and shower facilities. Location for good street food is very close by including a dim sum house next door for breakfast. The most attractive part of the hotel is the roof top lounge. Being the highest building in the vicinity amongst the shop houses, it provides a panoramic view of old George Town in this part of "china town". Good recommendation for a good and clean stay in Penang
