Fresh air and still new one on Jalan Macalister where a paradise for foods. Swimming pool could be better for more cleanliness. Room is functional and nice deco.

For the price we were paying, it was definitely worth staying as it has all the necessities and the location of the hotel is situated nearby all the places we wanted to go which makes it very convenient, checking-in and out was really efficient and fast as well!

    Location is great, you'll find food right opposite the hotel plus you can buy local delicacies as well. Huge room and worth the money, sound proofing of room can be better though and the basement carpark is pretty limited. In net though, great value for money. Will come again.

    This is my second time stay here. Room is big enough & clean enough. I used to go to lim skin specialist and from here very near to the clinic just walking distance. Right & left side of the hotel is food court so easy to find food. If possible ask for the room on higher floor. I got room on level 1, very noisy for those who want to sleep longer as the room near to restaurant so in the morning lots of people having breakfast & their voices really disturb my sleep.

    Simple but ample”
    Cons : 1. small pool, more for dipping than swimming. 2. unusual arrangement whereby towels ( mostly torn at the sides ) only put into the guest rooms after 430pm daily. 3. Relatively expensive extra bed at RM80 per night including breakfast. Pros : 1. Neighbouring mini markets, food stalls and walking distance to Komtar, 1st Avenue and Prangin Mall. 2. high-pressure shower ! 3. Simple but good breakfast. 4. Friendly staff. 5. Great room lighting. 6. Relatively spacious room.

    This is my third stay, first and second stay was not in peak season, this round is in high peak season in Penang, the window i feel that can not close properly which you still can hear the car and traffic outside, quite difficult to sleep at night, hope the sound proof can do it better.

    Pros: 1. Walking distance to food stalls and confectioneries (shop around) 2. Spacious room with basic amenities 3. Friendly housekeeping personnel and receptionist Cons: 1. For local tourist driving to Penang - beware that parking is very limited 2. Towel supplies arrived late everyday during our stay (could be due to the holiday season, not sure) . Towels are clean but looked worn with loose threads. 3. Don't bother with breakfast at hotel - apart from decent coffee (from the espresso machine) and toast, b'fast options needs improvement (please add omelette counter and have bake beans heated on the heating tray)

    Sound insulation isn't very good, I can hear the noise from outside, and children playing noisily from swimming pool in the early morning. My bedstead keep making noise. The location near to many hotspots, and many good food are around. Parking lots are very limited, and I feel unsecured to park my car on road side over the night. The hotel doesn't sell parking coupon, but we manage to get it after asking two convenient marts.
