Penang Island, Malaysia
Reviewed 1 December 2016

The staff are friendly and our reservation for the room is guaranteed as we check-in late around 8pm. The location of the hotel is ideal as there's sunday gaya street morning market just nearby. We used to walk to the market not more 5 mins. There's no any kettle inside the room but water machine for filling the drinking water...

The hotel is more like a backpackers lodge than a hotel. Location is good if you are interested in visiting the island close-by, but don't expect anything else. The street is very loud at night as well.

Stayed in February 2014 for 10 nights. The Staff were excellent, and the hotel was clean and tidy. We were supplied with fresh water daily, as well as toiletries, clean towels and the room cleaned whenever we asked. For the price we paid it was well worth it. Slept really well with having a windowless, very dark room - not...

The hotel is generally nice and in a good location. The rooms are en suite with air con and tv. We had a few good nights here and were happy to keep returning. When the hotel is busy, it can become noisy. The walls are thin so you here everything. Shame as because of this I can't really recommend whole...

on our trip through asia for 2 months stayed at the hotel garden twice. we did choose the budget option, which meant we did not have a window, however clean linen, clean room, aircon, tv, mineral water, and the best ensuite shower in asia!! staff very accommodating and friendly/helpful, wifi access, generally would definately recommend.

Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed at for one night (supposed to be a second but I changed my plans!) Dirty, bugs, noisy and broken appliances (free internet in lobby, if you could get the machine to turn on).
