Nice hotel, central located in Georgetown, with walking distance to all. The rooms was clean, but a bit old. Friendly staff, but the breakfast can be improved. The Wifi was very slow and mostly not working at all.

The hotel is located near to bus stop and there is a food court just behind the hotel. Free WI-FI is only provided at the hotel lobby. The staff was friendly and efficiency to solve my problem when I wanted to change my room.
