I read a previous review that there were bugs, and indeed there were quite a lot. This is my first hotel where there's no toilet floor mat for you to dry your feet. Jalan Pintal Tali can also get noisy through the night.

Bit of a strange place, but nice!

This place is actually a restaurant, with two hotel rooms only I think. It's a quiet place, in a good location in the city centre. The room was quite special, and had a good bed + airco. Breakfast was not too special, but what can you expect when they have so little rooms anyway

Disappointing stay in Penang.

1.The surprisingly simple breakfast doesn't show the honor to the clients. 2.only few tv programs available. 3.The check in process took 18 minute to complete.

Heritage Setting

Location, Heritage Setting, Staff Service

The hotel has a pleasant ambiance in a Heritage setting. The location is good handy to many local Chinese restaurants & also Indian restaurants. A good Western Shopping Mall is nearby . Also it is a short walk from a major bus interchange that accesses most of Penang. The staff service is very good. It is walking distance to all of the Georgetown attractions particularly the historic ones by the quay & all the street art. Breakfast is a continental style mixing traditional Malay pastries with western food.

Lovely hotel in a great location

location, decor, comfy bed

Very quaint building in a great location. Service was good and the place was clean (unlike what I expected given a few bad reviews from other travelers). Perhaps the only thing that needs improvement is the breakfast spread: toast, cake and a beverage just doesn't make anyone go wow.

Traditional Chinese style

The hotel is in a ancient building with traditional Chinese style furniture and decoration. The first floor is a restaurant, a little bit noisy. The room is not big, but it's clean.

Great stay

Large room, Friendly staffs, Convenient spot in town
8
Went there for a short holiday, only for a night. Love the concept and the overall ambiance of the hotel. Friendly staff who introduced us where to visit and the eateries around that area. The down point will be: 1. there is no parking lot for hotel, you will need to look for your own parking, and park at your own risk. 2. If you are traveling with old folks who are unable to climb up the stairs, it will be inconvenient as they do not have elevator. 3. Found earthworms in my bathtub while happily soaking myself inside and ended up with scream (haha)! 4. There are 2 airconds in our room but one of it malfunctioning and have water dripping onto the bed. 5. They only served cold nasi lemak, bread & banana cake with Orange juice, coffee & tea for breakfast. Which probably incompatible with the price we paid. Other than that, it was indeed a good stay!
