The room was nice and quiet, across the yard with a good shower and air condition, American satellite channels. The staff should go to charm school because they were not friendly at all and you could see that they looked down on you even though you couldn't understand what they were saying. The food was mediocre, it's better to walk...

I stayed on the second floor, right at the back. It was generally comfortable, but for the price I was paying (S$47.50 per night) I expected better. My electric kettle wasn't working, and I could not delay check out to 1pm. Also, there are mosquitoes even though all my windows were closed. There should be better pest control. I could...

Gave and suggested different options for my friend who joined on the trip on the very last minute. Ended up choosing to add an extra mattress in the room. Hotel...

OK....good location on Lebuh Chulia but set back so no noise problems. Staff friendly/helpful. Large room and bed,...

It is on a good location, there are many coffes restaurants to choose around. Hotel has antique chinesse decorations as well as a koi pond which is kinda cool. Rooms are okey for a guesthouse. Guests are mainly europeans who are doing their visaruns from thailand.

Very satisfied with the hospitality and service given at this hotel. Pre-booked my visa-run online not knowing what to expect. A woman called me later on during the day to confirm my booking and set a time for my pick-up (big comfortable van) the following week. This was going to be my longest road trip to date. After travelling from...

A quick visit to Penang for a school reunion so I needed to be in central Georgetown within walking distance from everything; mainly glorious Penang food, transport - main taxi stand 5 min walking distance, riskshaws for local sightseeing and local bus services & not to mention shops. Nearby Chowrasta market opens 6.30am and has all the knick-knacks including Penang's...
