The concept doesn't work
Air Condition at the hallway, after closing the curtain; there's barely no chill air coming into the container. Provided fan/exhaust fan too loud! No way you can sleep if you turn it on.

Good Hotel with afforable price, great location!
The hotel was amazing, it was very cozy and I only had to walk around to reach tourist attractions. The bus stop is just outside of the hotel. Many street arts and cafes around ! Will definitely come back again!!

Check in process
The check in process was extremely slow, the check out was very quick. In toilet probably some hooks to hang your clothes will be good. Other than that pretty satisfied with the stay. Cheers

Modern and cozy
Stayed in a deluxe room and it was compact but lots of space considering we almost stayed in one of the container rooms. Everything was clean and remodeled but they kept the large vintage windows that open onto a cute balcony. Bed was comfy and shower ran nice and hot, with a high shower head for those of us that are on the tall side. Location was great for catching the free Georgetown bus, and walking distance to good food and street art. Some street noise but that doesn't bother me. I'd definitely stay here again!

Character and history in a clean setting
Cute heritage hotel with lots of charm. The common areas were really nice and smelled fantastic, as did our room due to the plug in air freshener. Ours came with breakfast at the Spices Cafe, which was decent for a free meal. The hot water didn't last very long but the shower was clean and spacious with high shower heads for those of us tall people. Little bit of noise from the road and across the street, but in a building that's pushing 100 years old it's really not a surprise. They let us check in a few hours early which I know can't happen every time but it was nice. Would stay again and definitely recommend.

Abit let down
I used to stayed in container hotel in klia2, it was much better in terms of cleanliness and staffs. I stayed in the female dorm for a night, the air ventilation need much upgrades. There is no personal ventilation in the capsule, and the celling aircond turns on and off. I felt more or less abit suffocated when the blind shades being pulled down. There are hairs in the capsule, which mean they dont clean the capsule properly. I checked in around 10pm, and the reception on that night weren't that friendly. Slippers weren't offered until I asked for it. The shared bathroom are clean. The location of the property is convenient, just a few minutes walk from they jetty (Pangkalan Raja Tun Uda). Getting grab/uber ride is easy. Hope they improve.
