Chayanin S. Solo travelers Thailand, July 28, 2013
The room was clean, even though it might be old.

Clean Room, Helpful Staff, and Location.

Clean room. Staffs were nice and helpful. However, the room's price was a bit steep since breakfast was not included. The strongest feature lies in its location, which is right in d middle of city center. Easy access to everything from heritage site to hawkers at night.

The hotel makes an excellent base from which to explore Georgetown and Penang. It has an excellent range of facilities and very friendly and helpful staff. we booked through Agoda. the hotel rate was very good value. We seemingly had booked the Club class and this gave us use of the facilities in the hotel reserved for Club guests. The best perk was a free finger buffet and Happy Hour every evening from 6 to 8pm

Poh N. Couples Singapore, July 26, 2013
Great location but room design is dated

Central location, convienent transport, friendly staff
6.7
Reasonable stay the room design can be improved further, it is so dated. And there is no lift to the basement carpark, this makes the old folks rather cumbersome to climb the steps.

Excellence, Great and Wonderful hotel

Outstanding Hotel, and outstanding Service. Very Colonial and old school, but fully up to date in the modern era. The room was fabulous and everyone went out of their way to ensure we had a tremendous time

It was a great and pleasureable stay with my family. My son enjoyed the hotel breakfast and was treated very well by their friendly staff. Overall, enjoyable and good experience. Will definitely recommend to friends traveling to Penang.
Azmi M. Business travelers Malaysia, July 25, 2013
Over-rated and over-valued hotel.

Nothing much
3.7
I have stayed in better hotels in the same price range. The lobby and reception counter is just horrendous. Missed the entrance to the hotel the first time round and had to take a long detour. The entrance to the hotel was perpetually blocked by taxis and buses. Had to take risk exiting the hotel since view of traffic was blocked. Had to lug my heavy luggage up and down a flight of stairs from the car park. A building under construction was what I got after requesting for a room with a good view
