The hotel was large, it was the time of Hari Raya so celebrations at the peak. The room is good. It was a triple occupancy room so enough for three people. The bathroom is small but no issues, we are not gonna sleep there. The room is provided with a mini bar which is free and are refilled every day....

Arrived at 10 am told I could not check in until 3 pm....even though I needed a shower and get ready for a friends wedding at 1 pm. I ended up getting checked in at midday but took a lot of talking to reception. The room was comfortable and clean. I was happy with the stay just not customer service

Room was comfortable and impeccably clean. Staffs were all friendly and helpful, always never forget to smile and greet. Located just beside one of the best food streets in Penang Georgetown, walking distance to other famous Penang delicacies and Komtar and points of interest. Definitely recommended.

However, during the entire 4 nights stay the outside Indian music was unbearable and had no sleep for our entire stay. So if you don't mind constantly loud Indian music until 3 am in morning...
