Karen H. Couples Australia, March 20, 2015
Short visit to Penang

Friendly staff, tea and coffee available, comfortable room
Excellent with good location to go out and get a meal. Close to Komptar and Georgetown. Shame the TVS did not work and they had not installed Wifi in new rooms yet, but very good and they did offer to move us to a room with Wifi - we chose not to.

Design, Staffs, Location
Is only one thing....The room at the front of the hotel have to suffer from Old uncle singing in the bar from 6pm - 12am..can hear loud and clear in the room
Min L. Families with older children Singapore, March 8, 2015
Hospitable staff, excellent local foods nearby

Location, Staff, Comfortable beds
The staff on afternoon shift was really helpful, for instance he remembered when we requested for a hairdryer but was unable to obtain one as all were loaned out, and initiated to issue one to us the next day. The room we stayed was in the newly renovated section, the bathroom is a little strangely designed (you have to walk past the shower to get to the toilet) but the room was comfortable. A choice of two pillows was provided for each bed (one firm and one soft), a thoughtful gesture although one of my pillows was clumpy. The TV was spoiled during our stay, but the internet connection (weak signal in rooms) was good enough to keep us entertained. A treasure trove of local foods at the New Lane Hawker area just nearby, convenient for both breakfast and dinners (some stalls only sell in the mornings and others at night only, so you don't need to worry about the variety). Also not a long walk from the bus interchange at KOMTAR, and shopping malls (though with alot of empty shops in the malls, a common sight in Malaysia) in the area.

Chong C. Families with young children Malaysia, February 28, 2015
Simple but not a pro hotel

Good location, cultural and unique outlook
This was the second times I stay here, but for this trip experience, it was very bad. 1st, I mention I want the lower floor because of my baby child, but they gave me upper floor. 2nd, I stay here for two nights, but they didn't keep my room for the 2nd day. The bed and blanket didn't keep, no room services,, toilet tissue paper all no supply for the second day. This is a very bad services for a hotel. 3rd, the bed was very terrible. When u slept on the bed, u only can feel the spring on bed, no any mattress at all. I am not sure whether the mattress is to thin or they didn't put it. Very hard to sleep for two nights. Lucky they have four big pillows. Thanks god. For me, I will choose another hotel for my next Penang trip. Thanks.
Loke W. Couples Malaysia, February 27, 2015
Romantic and Nice room...

the room decoration...the cleanliness of the toilet....
overall the hotel was satisfied. But the cleanliness of the room decoration need to enhance but the toilet was very comfort and make people satisfy. The food surrounding not so impressive but quite convenience of the hotel location. The bed decoration was romantic and nice..it is worthy to stay again.
Vicky T. Couples Malaysia, February 27, 2015
Noisy Place with Karaoke until 1am
The soundproof of the hotel is weird especially for the rooms that facing to the road. There is a nightclub nearby and all the song the uncle sing come into the room LOUD. The antenna was broken and the TV cannot watch during the 2 days I stayed in the hotel. They even don't inform me about this at all when the time I checked-in. Some of the room, the bathroom just separated by two piece of transparent glasses and you can see your partner bathing very well, but the problems is, there is NO DOOR!!! This should really be concern by the hotel owner~ for me, the smell is really disgusting! There is no place to hang our tower in the bathroom too~
Wai J. Families with older children Malaysia, February 3, 2015
Can invest more on soundproof wall

spacious, clean, free parking right at the entrance
Stayed with my family, the room is right next to the street. Karaoke night at the pubs nearby all night long, not suitable for light sleeper.
