Clean, comfortable and easy access to food and shops.
Love that it's a heritage site - old pre-war building. Hoping for a similar feel inside the rooms and building. Perhaps this can be something for the owners (lovely people by the way) to consider. Parking is not as difficult to find as initially thought.

Value for money with excellent location
The inn is overall okay. Two things that turn me off though: No daily cleaning provided; and no electricity during night time. Couldnt found any staffs during that time, luckily it only lasts for an hour. We aproached the owner the next day and he told us it is due to road construction carried out at the street.

Superb location
The best thing about this budget hotel is the location, which is within walking distance to many attractions and must-try eateries. Cleanliness is below average with sticky floor and stain in bathroom. Dislike the fact that I have to remove my shoes to go to my room on the first floor. Anyway, the right choice if you will be sightseeing the whole day and only come back to sleep. Can't complain much for the price and location.

Highly recommended
Located near to most of the attraction places (street arts, good cafes/bar) in Georgetown, can just stroll around the streets and take good photos along the streets. Security is good, need to scan before enter the hotel. Just nice for a few nights here.

Standard Twin Bed (Shared bathroom)

no room available
There's no room available for us even after confirmed a booking through agoda. At first, the staff said will provide the room for us and asked us to wait another 5 mins only while they arranging the room. However the manager suddenly told us that there no way they can give us the room which been told to us that we just need to wait for it. How disappointed was that,after they have promised but didnt even try to make it up to us. Even so we have to walk roughly 10km to find another place to stay for the night.
