Superb location, average service, peaceful area. Hotel a little old, but it's worth the price. Located infront of Adventis Hospital. Will come back. Super slow internet. Next to market that sell yummy food and fresh fruit.

Nothing overly flash about this hotel, and they took a "holding fee" out of my bank account without telling me prior, which left me a bit short of spending money. When approached about this I was told "sorry about that, there's nothing we can do, you'll have to call your bank", which obviously being in a foreign country is a...

Great value for the price we paid. Beautiful view over looking Georgetown, Penang. Service was good, but a little slow, elevator needs to be replaced or updated very slow. Rooms were clean, but not immaculate. This was a good hotel for $46 a night.

It's an old hotel, really need to do some renovation and get some replacement for the old furnitures, carpets and all the stuffs in the room. Lack of cleanliness too for the room and the sheets, the air-con isn't cold either. No electronic sockets near the night stand.

The staff were very helpful and attentive. The hotel itself may need to be updated but it is still nice. The pool is a good addition. It's location is fine, there are some good places to eat around it and there is a bus stop out the front. We purchased a 30rm rapid Penang bus pass which is valid for...

Quite an old hotel. Very different feel from what you see on website. Room is quite old and rundown. Need refurbishment to bring it up to a bit of standard. I don't mind if a hotel is lower in cost but when things are not working in order which is a matter of simple maintenance, that becomes a bad experience....

The location of this hotel is ideal, across the road from the Adventist Hospital and just a short distance from Gurney Drive and Botanical Gardens. The hotel itself is quite old while the car park is dark and feels unsafe. We booked 3 rooms for 3 nights. The rooms were tired looking with furnishings in need of refurbishment. Normal toiletries...

The side building also provides some needs such affordable food stalls,...
