This a rundown hotel managed like a low cost hotel. Nothing is provided, not even some toothpaste or slippers. The wifi is completely useless. Guests can smoke in common areas. I tried to complain to the reception. They laughed into my face. The staff is the rudest I have ever seen in Malaysia. Stay away.

I booked this hotel as it was during a short holiday break and most of the hotels were fully booked. And I needed a hotel near to the High Court. Well, this hotel is about 5 minutes walking distance to the court. But they are quite fussy about the check-in time which is at 3pm. I arrived at the hotel...

It was our second time in this hotel and spent there 5 weeks this time. It might be little bit old but everything works well. Quite good breakfast, working wifi, good shower and the rooms are not too small. Staff is nice and helpful.

This hotel is in the perfect location - close to Love Lane, the World Heritage area and the waterfront. Very accessible for public transport. The revolving bar on the top of the hotel serves fantastic cocktails (hint - lychee martini is amazing) and has a happy hour. Another fantastic part of the hotel was the housekeeping staff. They were incredibly...

We stayed in an other hotel in Georgetown and came to the hotel only for their rooftop bar. We had great time and great cocktails there. The view is amazing and definitely worth a visit. The staff us friendly but the prices are a bit higher than other bars in Georgetown.

Well, we were glad that the hotel website offered us a superior room for just RM262, with two breakfasts included. The superior room was surprisingly large and without any smoky odours, even though it was on a smoking floor, and with a view of both the swimming pool and also the sea. However, the air conditioning didnt function well and...
