This is my third visit to this hotel the last was in 2007, I was thinking that to reach the hotel takes some effort to do BUT when driving by using the Penang Bridge you turn to Georgetown and look for KOMTAR, alas you can see the Hotel.

My wife and I stayed 5 nights during July. Due to Hari Raya Public Holidays we could only stay in their club room.

The hotel is located a bit away from the main attractions in Georgetown. But, there are plenty of places to eat for food lovers nearby. It is close to good Nasi Kandar eateries and the night food stalls open in the street just outside the hotel serving Pennag seafood. The major bus station at KOMTAR (the tallest building in Pennag)...

Recently renovated, nice hotel located in heart of Georgetown. Penang's famous street food is practically just next door, and the shopping malls are within short walking distance away. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and modern. However, if you love the beach within walking distance, then this hotel is not for you. Parking is free for guests, however if there is...

Great because it is close to the shopping areas (1st Avenue, Prangin, Komtar) and the hawker stalls in New Lane and Kuantan Road Markets. The doorman is excellent ... remembers many customers even from a long time ago. Very friendly service from all staff members with a hearty "Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening" and a smile. Made one feel welcome.

I stayed here during the Malaysia Day weekend. First impression is that, the hotel is actually tucked away at a distance to the main heritage sites such as Cheong Fatt Tse Mansion and museums so there is some bit of walking to do. That's not actually a bad thing because the place is lined with abundance of food options and...
