Perfect location
Normal stay with babies, I would rate it as OK. Renovated old hotel. Hotel provide a parking space - good. Location - very near to georgetown attraction - perfect. Noise- you can hear very loud music at night since it is very near to a night club - disappointing. Cleanliness - floor under the bed was very dusty and dirty - awful

Good hotel in excellent location.
Best thing is location close to bars and restaurants including Red Garden Food Paradise which has many hawker food options available. No room safe in rooms. Have stayed before and would stay there again

Don't eat breakfast here.
Breakfast is served in the basement, where it's dank, smelly and stale. The food is not appetizing. Ruined my day!
