The apartment is clean and good enough for family of 8! The only thing i don't like was waiting for the lift! Took so long and always crowded. Check in and check out was a breeze, we collected/ return the key at the letter box. Overall it was a good stay. Location was great too. Easy to get to anywhere!

Great location & awesome stay”

My family & I had a great time while staying here. The team was very helpful in organizing the information about how to checkin & also remind us about the checkout time in case we forgot. The room was great with excellent view & great location. Many people stayed here.

Highly Recommend - Fully Equipped Service Apartment”

Fully Equipped Service Apartment - Clean, Comfy & Spacious. Rated the location as 5 stars as there are adequate facilities (e.g: mini mart/bakery shop/bubble tea/ small eatery etc) just right below the apartment that catered to the residential needs even though there isn't any nearby train or public transportation. Apartment wifi can get laggy at times but still acceptable. Able to capture nice aerial buildings view from the rooms. :) The only downside for foreigners is that a security deposit (refundable) of *RM200* will be collected by bank transfer before your arrival. The management do not accept cash but **INSTANT TRANSFER ONLY**. But the host was very nice and accomodating to provide solutions to us that we finally managed to get our engaged driver's help to complete the needed transfer on our behalf. Will consider to return if I were to travel to Penang again and definitely recommend this apartment to my peers. 👍

bedsheet kinda felt rough, found hair on the pillow, contacted their number and got fast response, they send replacement sheet the next day. apartment building has many facilities. their deposit requirement is annoying, you have to be able to transfer money although you are a foreigner. i was expected to transfer money from my country's bank and went through currency rates, and when they transfer back the deposit, i lost some amount of money due to the rates, defeating the purpose of "getting back your money if you didnt break anyhting". i wont go back to this place, id rather choose somewhere else where they can impose a better deposit system (and cleaner and smoother bed sheet)
