          A unique option”
          A lovely, restored Chinese shop house with atmospheric rooms. Location is very good within easy access of many restaurants and tourist attractions. Only downside was the effectiveness of the staff who seemed reluctant, or unable, to resolve fairly simple issues. The air con in the room literally spat out ice when first switched on and then leaked water. When this was pointed out to the staff we were told to just leave it on and it will be OK. It was OK but the puddle of water near to the bed was not so welcome. Also, wi fi was not available for the first two days. On asking about this we were told nothing could be done as it was the weekend!

          Historic Chinese Hotel with amazing antiques! Good Location”
          Historic Chinese Hotel with amazing antiques! Good Location NO ENGLISH tv. NONE. Slow wifi. Closes early. Locked up! The front door is locked up and you have to knock and knock to get in after 10:00 pm. This is a noisy hotel because of the amazing historic design. There is an open ceiling that allows rain and sunshine to come pouring in. The stay is totally worth your stay if you like Chinese art and history. Don't try to watch t.v. Get a sim card at the airport for your wifi. Don't eat at the hotel because the food is a bit high cost for the value. Remember there are so many great places to eat in Georgetown. For breakfast you may want to walk 25 meters down to the corner and take a left to an indoor/outdoor cafe. They have excellent western and Asian breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you don't like something, just turn around and walk 50 meters there will be another great option.

          A fantastic place to experience.”
          This is definitely the wonder place that I would recommend to all my friends who want to travel to Penang. The restaurant is located in a very convenient place that is in the center of the town and a few minutes walk to the scenes, while it stands in a very quiet and comfortable neighborhood. The crew members are so nice and friendly that makes living here easy and sweet. The hotel itself is such a nice heritage that we couldn't stop making pictures of it. A wonderful place to live in!
