“Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

This is a good business and leisure hotel. The check in quite smoothly even when i enter was a lot of guests was waiting.It seem like their manager also helping for it.The rooms consider good, I have stayed here for several times and always got marvellous views of the sea. The room is smallish, but what the hell, I used it only to sleep. The fixtures were standard for a hotel of its type.

You can walk out to many of the sights of Penang and even eat out in any of the marvellous eateries all around the hotel.

But overall , I would recommend it, especially for business trips.

The location of this hotel is just awesome... Smack right in town with everything from pubs to disco to food next to hotel and local Indian food right opposite the hotel.

Cleanliness wise room is clean, air conditioner is cold... In fact a bit on the cold side.

The staff greets you... But merely
Hotel buffet breakfast is just ok...

Overall the hotel is good for me to return again solely because of the location!

It is in a good location, right smack in the city area.
Ideal for a short business stay when you wont be spending too much time in the hotel.

Not recommended for anything more than that.
Its a purely functional hotel.

The hotel breakfast in a tiny cafe is good for those who just want to fill their stomach with something before dashing off on a meeting, but its really nothing to shout about.

If you have more time in your hands, you will do yourself much better heading off to one of the prata joints that abound in this food paradise, rather than stick to the hotel grub.

The dated rooms could do with more cleaning.

Only thing going for it is its location in the city.

More of a very short stay, wouldnt recommend for leisure stay.

OMG it was the worst hotel stay I had ever been. The wifi (RM11.60) was unstable. Staff was unfriendly. Breakfast was cold. Check out the picture, the hot water from the tap was BROWN (it was darker than what you see at the picture) You will be able to find a better place with this price else where. Please stay away from this place.
