Excellent service”
The staff are very helpful, although the internet has been having issues since we stayed, I would still give this a very good rating as it outweighed the problem that we had. I would definitely go back to this hotel if I visit Penang again.

Super near all the good food”
The hotel is very near all the good food in penang.. The air con is very cold but the staff has been very kind in providing us with an extra pillow & blanket (for my friend) because I had food poisoning and a major headache. Super friendly staff. The only issue is limited parking.

One of the best budget hotel in town”
One of the features that I like the most in this hotel is the super large window in my room as it provides a nice view of the city. Besides, this hotel also provides free shampoos to the guest at its lobby. The parking bays are quite limited but the safety of the cars is secured by the CCTV surveillance which I am very much satisfied. The room is quite spacious and the staffs are very friendly and helpful too. Location of the hotel is very strategic in the center of the city. In a nutshell, value for money!!!

Acceptable”
one of the worse hotel i have come across.room is small , never come across wash basin outside bathroom ( in the room itself ) which makes the room even smaller & the whole room wet even when washing your hands.1 double bed is of only queensize.with the price i pay for can get bigger room hotels in Macalister road with is much more convenient for travels around Penang & with plenty of food courts around.will not come back & recommend to friends & relatives.

Bugdet hotel with wonderful services!”
I was travelling from Thai to KL. I was tired of long hours driving decided to stay one night in Penang before continue my journey to KL. Room was okay, clean despite just has a basic needs. Staffs were superb! Really helpful to help me find a parking spot because this hotel is limited parking bays. Recommended to all! Definitely I will come back again.
