Very good”
Love the overall ambience of the hotel. Very retro and chic. The family suite was large and clean. We would prefer to have some barrier/curtain between the shower/toilet area and the sinks/closet area, so 2 persons can use the washroom at the same time with a bit of privacy. The hotel is situated at the very edge of Georgetown, and it is not enjoyable to walk in the hot and humid weather of Penang, but luckily, Grab is very convenient in the city. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Good value for money. Clean room. Friendly staff. Perfect hotel if you don’t mind taking a grab to go everywhere or if you don’t mind a good walk.

Loved our stay here”
This beautifully renovated property is definitely worth looking at if your heading to Panang. Well located, spotlessly clean and very quiet. The staff here are so lovely, professional and helpful. We really enjoyed the breakfast and had lunch on one occasion in the restaurant. My wife had the set menu with a tempura fish burger...well priced and very tasty. We loved the selection of food carts around the corner from the hotel. We ate there a few times coming back late and the food was excellent. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend this property to others.

I personally think that the room is a little too pricey for a 3-star hotel but my family really enjoyed the stay. We love the shampoo provided for shower as well.

Great Place to Stay!!!”
Overall its almost a perfect place to stay. It has everything you could think of. Food stall/places, shopping complex, tourist just within walking distance. Hotel staffs are very friendly, helpfull and always smile when they bump into you. The only setback for me is the size of the room is a bit small compare to the hotel/s that i've been stayed @ Pulau Pinang (Penang).

Got the heritage room. Very spacious and clean. The location is excellent to the most famous eateries around. Hotel has unique concepts. Can't say the same for the internet though. Decent speed but repeatedly disconnected. Would stay here again.

Great location decent bfast and gd location”
What stood out is the hospitality of the staff - always ready to help and serve with a smile. Location is pretty gd and some really gd food within walking distance or a short Grab ride away like RM$4. Though the room was spacious and clean, ours faced the mosque and road. Hence noisy vehicles or people walking past could be heard til the wee hours. Some of the street light also spilt into our room. As early as 5plus am, prayers could be heard from the mosque but it was a brief one so we would stir a bit before falling back to sleep. You may wish to consider if you're a light sleeper. Other than these factor, our stay is a really pleasant one. We enjoyed the bfast. On the last day, we had to depart at 8am but their kitchen only operated at the time. However, the staff were nice enough to make special arrangement to have our bfast packed (sandwich, green apple and bottled water) and nicely left at the counter when we checked out. We really appreciate that. Thank you so much Areca!

Unique Experience”
Love the hotel's concept, with a touch of peranakan style. This is our first experience staying there and it was pleasant. Hotel is a stone's throw away from Ming Xiang's pastry shop, worth a try! Despite the fact that hotel is located at a strategic location, however as the mosque is located nearby, there will be prayers during certain timings. Hence, if you're a light sleeper, you might be woken up by the prayers.

IMPRESSIVE FIRST STAY”
Decided to stay at this hotel after reading the online reviews. Happy to say, we were not disappointed! in fact, quite pleasantly surprised to find a value for money stay in the middle of the city of Georgetown. Rooms, corridors and cafes were clean and well maintained. Staff helpful. The aircond in the room needed to be put all the way down to 17C..maybe because its Midea?! Hope they fix this issue and definitely would like to stay there again.

A Fantastic Find”
We had issues trying to open the door to the twin room we had booked. The manager came almost immediately and offered to upgrade us to a family suite. We were thrilled with the gesture and have to say that throughout our stay, we found the staff friendly, attentive and responsive There a few of things that the hotel could improve on. First, wifi strength in the hotel needs to be improved on. We were each given passwords for our devices. My friend had brought her Apple TV which failed to load - there was simply no connection. Phone devices were ok but signal strength was not the best. Secondly, there is no door separating the shower/toilet from the dressing room which was quite inconvenient when you are sharing a room or are in need of some privacy. Management should look into this - it wouldn't take much to install a door between the areas. Double glazing would be nice too, to block out the street noise (luckily this area is quieter part of the city) and the adhan/calls to prayer.
