central location, pleasant staff, clean room but disappointing breakfast.
Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, but what's going on with the breakfast? Oily food, burnt coffee, old fruit slices, next time, I'll be back to the hotel but I'll avoid the breakfast.

What is the problem
The receptionist couldn't find my booking even though i have shown the booking number and all paid online. Took more than an hour to settle it and realized i've paid extra via Agoda which is actually cheaper if i were to book with the hotel directly. Was told to call agoda customer service directly myself. Am not sure what communication problem happens but definitely a disappointment

The entire hotel needed renovation and upgrade so badly!!! I don't mind old fashion designed hotel but staff uniforms are all worn out from black to grey color. The carpet in the hotel especially on the aisle smells so badly I had to hold my breathe I'm afraid the smells and bacteria will eat me up!! The roof has water marks all over! Luckily the room didn't smell so bad or I might not be able to spend the night there. Wifi available but no connections at all. Bed and pillow was alright but gosh, can't they afford a proper blanket they had to use layer of bed protection as blanket? Room has no hair dryer. I wished I had booked another hotel here in Penang.
