The system management is bad

Room is big, the Chinese food is fantastic
They didn't record our booking correctly, but eventually they still manage to solve the problem. So we think it was ok. It was a good stay, the room is BIG and unique. The food from the restaurant is really good, should give it a try!

bad trip
it was bad, the room isnt clean, no elevator, we can only use the stairs, they just serve bread and fruits that's not fresh for our breakfast, well its a family business hotel anyway so they're just not professional.

Recommended stay in George Town

Location, Historical Building, Friendly helpful staff
If you are looking for a stay to immerse yourself in the history I fully recommend the 1881. Ask for parking if you need it as parking anywhere in George Town is difficult and at a premium. That being said the staff were more than helpful and facilitate parking at the hotel on our arrival.

one night stay at hotel for Penang bridge run

good location, friendly staff.
Checked in and found the room in good condition, comfortable bed. Parking is an issue as they have very limited spaces by the roadside. Very noisy especially at night due to the restaurant downstairs. The room has no safe and only a key lock. The breakfast they provide is only cereal and bread. Overall I feel it is very overpriced. There are much better hotels available for a comparable price.

Gem in Georgetown

This small charming hotel is in the middle of Georgetown within walking distance of most conveniences and entertainment. While I was there on a business trip, it certainly made my evenings convenient
