Its definitely a budget hotel and I think its in a nice spot. You can have a good sleep (I was on 7th floor) and the shower's great. 7-Eleven is at the ground floor if you need a bite or a drink anytime. But it'll be tight for 2 adults and 2 kids in a single room, better get the...

A quick 2 night stay before my trip to Bangkok. This hotel's staff set it apart from similar budget hotels. Rooms are basic but beds are fabulous and everyone from housekeeping to front desk is professional and welcoming. It is my "go to" budget hotel in Asia. Always delivers a great value stay!

I have stayed here for more than 12 times and always felt homey in the area. This year was the first time that I considered looking for something else. The price of RM 123 is similar to a decent 3 star hotel, booking policy dependent on occupancy rather than their previous early bird , managers left, the remaining supervisors still...

The room seemed to be lacking in aeration as it had a very strong stench of smelly shoes just when we entered. The furniture and drapes were old and torn. Other than that, the only thing we loved was the shower.

A very good place to stay when travelling on a budget. Ambiance was good. During our stay we hardly experience any sort of disturbance. As it is a budget hotel, rest services are available at an extra cost. Though add-ons are not much expensive. Location is pretty good as its within George town. George town being a world heritage city,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Staying true to our unique no frills concept, we provide you a good night's sleep at outstanding value. Our hotels come with high quality beds, power showers, 24-hour security system, and are conveniently located near transportation hubs and popular local attractions. Unnecessary costs are kept at bay by eliminating facilities that you might not need such as swimming pools, gyms, spa rooms etc. Stay within walking distance to the famous dining places of George Town like the famous Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow. Penang's most famous beach, Batu Ferringhi, is half an hour's drive away from our hotel. The famous hawker centre along Gurney Drive is a must try, and so is the New World Park located right next door to us. ... more   less
