I found this hotel to be nearby town and somehow on a good budget. I prefer a more home-stay place, cosy and rather not opt for the higher expensive hotel (i dun need an indoor swimming pool or free breakfast - i somehow never manage to wake up for it).
I was first greeted by the counter staff immediately (I got serve the moment I walk in), since they don't have to check-in 20-30 people which is common in larger hotels. Of course, I was a bit skeptical at first, given the low price I pay but upon entering the room I know I was right this time. I'm pleasantly surprised with the clean room, basic necessity is provided (water dispenser, hair dryer, soap + towel) and even free wi-fi !! And plus, remember to drop your documents and even your room key at the counter before you leave and the staff will take care for you. This are the small little things that I could really appreciate.
Food wise, well it's Penang. There's quite a number of stalls nearby offering chicken rice, porridge and char kuay teow. If you a morning person, there's a market within 5 mins walking. Or if you a beach person, it's just 5 mins behind the hotel too.
Overall,I pay for what's really necessary, a good place to sleep and on a tight budget. And it's a pleasant experience.
