This hotel is definitely in need of a little updating (think 70's/80's decor) but provides good value and an excellent location.
We got a clean and comfortable double room for about 88 RM (a weekend night), which dropped to around 80 RM during the week. The guys at reception aren't the most lively and welcoming bunch, but not to worry. The room itself was quite spacious, with aircon, and had a reasonable bathroom, all a bit dated, but it grows on you! What we really liked about this place was that it was quiet at night and early morning, meaning you get a peaceful nights sleep away from the noise of the city and early morning markets.
It is walking distance to many of the major sights in Georgetown, and has excellent places to eat nearby (try the Red Garden Food centre).
We would come back here and recommend to travellers on a similar budget.
