We stayed here for 4 nights and we thought it was fantastic. The service was even better - particularly a man behind the reception desk (think his name is Adi). He couldn't do enough for us. Super comfy bed and very clean throughout. Great value - highly recommend.

This is a slightly upscale budget hotel set right in Chulia Street, which is the hottest spot in Georgetown. It is fairly close to food and drinking spots. Although it is located along Chulia Street, access to the hotel is via a longish narrow lane, so it is a comfortable distance away from traffic noise. We booked 2 standard double...

The hotel itself isn't anything special, with small rooms and the aircon could do with improving. Room and private bathroom were clean, and bathroom in a wet room style. This is fine, but as it is very small, absolutely everything in the room gets wet when having a shower! Also, no hot/cold options on the taps - all just lukewarm...

This is a little gem of a hotel. Chulia road is one of the busiest roads on the island yet you turn off into a quiet courtyard and immediately there is peace. Very clean with helpful staff. No bar or meals but on one of the busiest streets for eating and drinking on the island. Worth asking about an upgrade,...

Sound of footstep is terrible from upstairs, room is ok. front desk is mediocre. But area is good with lots of good food around just by walking distance. The turning to the hotel is pretty secretive so travellers who go there need to pay extra attention when looking for the entrance.

Stayed for one night as we wanted to try out the hotel and also to walk around the surrounding area. Check in was quite fast as there wasn't any queue during that time which was around 2pm. But later 3pm onwards, more people start to arrival at the hotel. We took the basic triple room. It was clean and just...

This hotel is not worth the money. While the location is good and the staff are friendly enough, that is about all it has going for it. We paid $26AUD a night for a double room with air conditioning and shared bathroom. In Asia, you expect money like that to provide you with a certain level of luxury. This place...

Stayed here for 4 nights, it's cost effective for a solo traveller staying on the first floor, didn't have to lug my luggage up the stairs, except it is near the staff counter, so it's noisy when there are kids running around before they check in. Location is wonderful along chulia street, and they offer free bicycle rental with $50...

The location of the hotel is very convenient, with many nice restaurants near by. The small coffee shop near the restaurant is quite good as well. The room is quite small, and the water was leaking at the bathroom. Nevertheless, it is still worth staying there for a short trip considering the price and location.

The location of this place is great, it's on one of the main streets in Georgetown, close to street food, great restaurants and it's easy to find your way around. The hotel room was fine, very white. But it had the amenities we needed for a few nights. Unfortunately, the sound insulation is very poor. We had a room very...
