                Superlight & clean room and bsthroom. The location was great and straff very friendly and helpful. I felt safe there because of proper locks on the door. Good value for the money, though I stayed there during Chinese New Year so prices went up. Would be nice with a fridge in the room. I would definitely go back :)

Staff really helpful, minimalist room but enough. Need improve for the pillow maybe. Free flow hot and cold water. Small inconvinience in my room, theres little water seepage at the floor near table. At roof garden we can see komtar building.

                Yes nice place to stay in Penang! Close to a lot of places of interest! Some can be walking distance and a lot of nice food surrounding. If can have mini bar and washer will make the place perfect. Or maybe a roof top bar too!

                great value for money”

                Great location. Very friendly helpful staff. Room was good, bed comfy. Nice touch with free coffee & hot chocolate in the communal area. Great food hall just on the main road by the hotel also their recommendation. Only gripe, WiFi didn't work in the room, it's brilliant in reception and just outside. Would def stay there again.

                Condition is as expected for a boutique rated hotel however, the rooms allocated were slightly small. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Overall environment is clean.

                Location & Staff is good but room is satisfactory only.”

                Location is excellent and with Polite and helpful staff. However, these might be just our unfortunate encounter. The bathroom is wayyyy tooooo small or more like its too narrow. I did not expect it to be that small eventho the pictures shown seems small but ok. The bathroom curtain will touch your back when you shower. It feels pretty uncomfortable, like you are cleaning up yourself and the curtain dirty you on the same time. Also, there was only just slight warm water or totally no warm water when we shower. Additionally, the basin is kinda stuck, the water does not flow down and it will flood the basin; we can only turn on the tap and let a "string" of water flow out to at least let the water able to flow down and not flooding the basin. Overall the room looks clean but we did encounter 2 small cockroaches crawling on the side table and on the floor.

                Pleasant but a little basic for the price”

                Cosy and clean boutique hotel and well located. Attentive staff. Comfortable and functional room. Nicely decorated. The only reason i would not recommend this place is that for the price paid, was expecting more amenities like at least a room service/breakfast area (even if basic and simple toast), or some bar/drinks service. Toiletries was also fairly basic. It may be appealing to some but i would explore elsewhere in future.

                There’s no electricity since 5 something in the morning. Request for full refund but only getting one night refund. It was supposed to be a relaxing holiday. But ended up getting bitten by mosquitoes whole night. Totally unacceptable.

                As this hotel is converted from a commercial shoplot, one side of my room is a locked wood window and door, another side is room door, the only bad thing is soundproof, I can easily hear people walking and talking on walkway outside my room, also the wood window and door seems flimsy and can be opened easily. Other than these it’s a nice place, very nice to walk around for sight seeing and food hunting.
