          A budget hotel in the heart of Georgetown city. The room was fine, the staff was friendly. The hotel is near Esplanade. Easy to get food and also near to 7-11, which is very convenience.

          Near Esplanade”
          The hotel is located near Little India, above an Indian restaurant and opposite Trick Eye Museum. It was about 5 minnutes' walk from the Esplanade, the starting point for the 2018 Penang Run. The room was spacious and reasonably clean, the shower and wifi was working fine, and I could even watch the live telecast of world cup. No complaints.

          Good location. Friendly and helpful staffs. May consider to improve cleanliness and sound proof. There is no lifts, so it's not recommended for those with big luggage. Parking available. Overall it's a good stay. Will come back again.

          You deserve better accomodation”
          Location is ok, with free parking. However the route from parking lot to hotel was so filthy with rodent being sighted. Very much disgusted. The family suite junior room spotted quite a number of lizard dropping at window pane. TV auto-off every few minutes can be frustrating too. No elevator, staircase and lobby are not equipped with air conditioning too. The water manhole in bathroom also draws stinky smell from the drainage at ground floor. I had to block the hole with plastic bag at night, also worry rat will come out from the hole. Overall George Town has poor drainage system that blocks the black water flows thus emitting stinky odour, so i can't fully blamed the hotel. Booked 2 king size bed via agoda but was given 2 single bed, so we had to top up tp upgrade to desired room. Reason given was that this booking was done via booking.com, and the hotel had not assigned the Junior suite room to booking.com. Lame excuse but lesson learned, gotta check the booking condition in future. Avoid any bookings outsource to other booking site.
