Perfect Hotel for Foodies

Friendly well informed Satff, Cafe across the street, Helpful Staff
too bad we did not have a chance to taste the ever famous Cha Kway Tiauw! Overall it was a really good stay. The triple Room is a bit smallish, but it has a kettle. Café over the street is fantastic refuge for fabulous western food , of curse if you had enough with the endless list of Penang food. The staff were all very helpful, pointing and directing us to places to eat which are not exist in the brochure.

hotel near VN restaurant, near local market, but very limit restaurant at night. Near Penang times square. Hotel located at the end of Jalan Siam, not popular with bus driver, most of them don't know this road, I have to request drive me to Penang times square. Hotel clean, but small, no breakfast or restaurant.

Nice Cozy Hotel

Nice location, attentive staff, clean room
We booked So Hotel after reading a few positive reviews. The hotel is located not too far from the center of Georgetown. Most things are within walking distance or a short commute. We arrived around 6 o'clock after indulging ourselves with ice sherbet drink and cucur udang(prawn fritters) near Chowrasta Bazaar. When we arrived, there were no parking but the hotel staff manage to guide us to park just behind the hotel. One have to be good in maneuvering as the alley at the back of the hotel is quite small. Upon checked-in, we were ask to choose our pillow from 3 options, goose/down, cotton or polyester which I think a nice features since we always complaints about how hard or how soft the pillows in certain hotels. We booked a triple room. The room itself is very clean and cozy. Basic amenities such as soap and shampoo is provided. There is a large glass window looking on to the street below which is nice. Soundproofing is not so good in the room but we have no problem sleeping till the morning. Overall, for the price that we paid, its certainly is value for money. I would recommend this hotel for those who wants a clean accommodation but basic without burning a hole in your pocket.

Helpful staff, room a bit small, difficulty in transportation
It's quite a distance from komtar. So, it takes some time to reach there by walking but still quite alright. The staff were helpful and friendly.
