Attended a conference nearby and this was a nice affordable stay. Room is sparsely furnished and of course rather spartan but it's comfortable. You have some nearby restaurants but I didn't have time since the conference took up the whole day. Service was uneven and the check-in process confusing but otherwise, had a decent stay.

We stayed here during our recent return visit to Penang. This hotel is not only cheap and conveniently located, it is also clean with friendly staff. Check in was a breeze. Rooms though small have all the amenities like a safe, fridge, hair dryer and coffee/tea making facilities. There is ample parking in front as well as in the lot...

I actually didn't stay here -- I accidentally booked this hotel for days I wouldn't be in Penang and when I contacted the hotel they canceled promptly and with no penalty. This is great customer service and should be noted!

I think I stumbled into a little gem of a little hotel just outskirt of the main tourist centre of Georgetown. Ample parking (at first I thought there was no parking but then the guard opened a gate to a whole open area next to the hotel which could fit 20 more cars, which is technically more than the total...

We had not stayed in this part of Georgetown before. This hotel was near the hospital where we were getting our checkups. It is close to many food courts and some wonderful Dim Sum restaurants! The hotel has a small restaurant which is open for lunch and dinner. The food at the hotel is not great but it is convenient....

We took a trip to Penang from Langkawi for medical checkups at Loh Guan Lye hospital and wanted a place close to the hospital so we didn't have to deal with taxi's. The hospital is less than a 5 minute walk away and was very convenient as we had to make a few trips back in forth during our stay....
