Good and happy stay.

Price, staff friendliness and character of hotel.
Overall we found this hotel to be a perfect place to stay for a number of reasons. Firstly it would have to be the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to help which made us feel like guest. The second would be the price and location, both were excellent. If you are looking for 5 stars then you will be dissapointed but if you want a hotel with character and not a hotel that could be anywhere then this may suit you. There are two things that may count against this hotel which are the poor choice in breakfast (but a few minutes away are plenty of cafes or street stalls) and the lack of power in the shower (but does prevent you having a shower). Definitely would come back and recommend the hotel.

Water supply problem but the owner is very helpful

Nice ambience, Great location, Friendly and helpful staff
In overall it was great. However, the hotel faced some water pipe problem and there are no water supply during our stay. The hotel owner is kind enough to pay for our taxi so we can take our shower in another hotel. The street is quiet but vehicle sound can still be heard if the room is facing the road. The hotel owner brought us to the top floor so we can take photo of the Komtar (Penang landmark). He is also kind enough to give me medicine as I was having a headache. We were impressed!

Great hotel

Location to markets, great value, beautiful rooms.
Reception was very helpfuland friendly. The hotel is walking distance to a fantastic street food market that really picks up at night. I went out nearly every night and found that it was walking distance to the club's and red garden.

Noisy and dirty

Close to city centre.
We were given a room which is close to the road. There is a karaoke place nearby and it can play loud music late into the night. There is also a futsal place just opposite the hotel. They too can be very loud at night.
