The side building also provides some needs such affordable food stalls,...

Staying at this hotel was worth of money. The services were good. The reception staff was very kind and friendly. The location of the hotel also was strategic which makes me easier to move around. I would recommend for people to stay here.

My family has stayed in the hotel a few times over the years and noticing the gradual change in the service and amenities. The location of the hotel is okay as it it not far from city center and Gurney Drive. The cleanliness of the room and washroom is acceptable. However the upkeep of the facilities/amenities needed to improve, the...

We paid 200RM/night per room. TINY & stuffy room with ancient bathroom & frail thin towels. No refrigerator, just a slow heating water kettle. Maybe once a great hotel way back when. But now even the cleaning standard is so subpar! I don't think they ever vacuumed the carpets the 4 nights we where there, as I can see the...

I was travelling for medical reason (going to Penang Adventist Hospital) and this is the nearest hotel in the area (just across the hospital). Distance wise, perfect! Room is quite OK. It is spacious. Although it is an old hotel so do not expect anything fancy. It has a good aircon, perfect hot water. Problem is, the amenities is lacking....

Hot water is not hot enough. The plumbing/pipe system makes so much noise you can hear water running at high pressure when someone is using the shower/toilet. The hotel is attached to a mall, and there's another mall quite near too if you like to go to the mall on your holiday.
