Excellent service by all staff. Able to accommodate our request to put a baby cot in our triple room. Very clean and amenities are provided. Good location and just outside you find very good hawker food (a must to try the almond tea dessert, char kuey teow, chee cheong fun).

Room square foot is slightly bigger than most basic hotel rooms. Extremely comfortable bed. Location is good. Walking distance to Penang Times Square, Famous Chendol, Jeruk Pak Ali and many other quaint shops. Hotel...

Room is quite big. Closed with food street and mall. Clean hotel and nice person. Breakfast is excellent!! You have to try the premium milk tea , dimsum, nasi lemak and also the salad. In the night just walk around the hotel and you will find a really good duren.

Located around a 10mins taxi ride from the jetty and close enough to all you need. The hotel is a well run business which is clean and tidy. The breakfast served to good without being amazing. You can order noddle dishes from the kitchen which was nice. There is a small pool and gym if needed. The service was fine....

This hotel is relatively central and a convenient place to explore Georgetown. Most of the famous eateries, cafes, tourist sites and the street art locations are within walking distance (if you don't mind walking in the Penang heat). An added bonus is the famous New Way hawker stalls (set up every evening) are right outside this hotel so you will...

Worst hotel I've stayed in my years of traveling!! The stay was fairly pleasant until my group was accused of smoking in the room, damaging their window and sofa upon checkout. Nobody had noticed the small tear on the sofa upon check-in (who checks??) and we were blamed for damaging it FURTHER. That means it was already spoilt when we...
