Stayed here last year during the haze. I wish I would stay longer. The hospitality by the staff and managers are remarkable. They really listened to your needs. The room is comfy. Breakfast is simple but supernice. They even brought us some local tasty nasi lemak and delicacies from local market. This is the hotel you must stay when you are in Penang. We will definitely come back soon.
