Perfect room and location with the Worst service!!

Nice room,perfect location,WORSTservice!
Room is nice,clean and stylish. Location is good with so many street food around. Rate is good. If you no need any service,then this hotel is the best choice. Service is the WORST we stayed during our 10nights trip at different hotels in Thailand and Malaysia.They are not patience to explain the things you may not understand and like a service machine to repeat the words they need to say without listening your request. They even don't want to look at you! What's a bad service!There's no smile at the reception or at the lift you saw the staff. This is the first impression of Penang.

Lack Of Car Park

Location, New & Nearby the famous food Court
A bit dissappoited ~ Air-condition not function when i check in to the 1st room, and they exchange the "Smoking" room to me. ~ Lack of car park, more suitable to traveler and not local business trip or family trip

A modest hotel with convenient location

Center of all sightseeing, food place
Positive: 1)Walking distance to komtar terminal(this is the most important place to take buses and go for all your sight seeing) 2) quiet at night, no hustle and bustling 3) many street food to eat especially at night. A food street is just 2 streets away. If you are in a rush and can't savour all the famous food at different places. This is a good place. Is like a mini food court. 4) quad room is big. There is even a 3 seater sofa. Amenities like shampoo and shower gel were given. Our room also have a window that can even see one of the sightseeing - Kek Lok si( temple). Love the room (712) max is 8 floor. 5) all sightseeing within walking distance. Nearest is sun yat sun memorial. Provided you like to walk cause taking a cab is quite exp. each bus fare was just around rm2 per trip. 6) they served breakfast and has a mini pool near the bar Negative 1) cleaning was just half done. Not very thorough. The first night I had some oil spill so I wiped it with towel. At night when I came back I realize it was still oily so I guess they just make the bed, dry the toilets and change towel. No sweeping or mopping. They use wooden flooring. But towels can be change everyday 2) breakfast is limited. Just to fill the stomach. Not much of a concern cause we always head out for local street food. 3) gym is just 1 track and bicycle machine. Instead of building a pool and gym. The space could be use for other facilities. Overall I would recommend travellers especially 3-4 pax. Cause rarely a quad room is that spacious. Receptionist can speak English well.
