Read from other reviews before going and we expect some grumpy staff. However, it was not like that. Maybe the management did something because we can see the front desk staff is pulling the longest smile ever. He is helpful in explaining the payment procedure, and in checking our room availability before the due check in time of 2pm. The...

Room 78RM. Free WIFI. Excellent Service with a smile. We needed an electric adaptor, they provided it. We checked out late, no extra money was charged. Polite and helpful staff. Small room and bathroom though. No Fridge. Just a few TV channels. Very small parking (3/4 cars only) based on "first arrived, first served”. Some rooms are separated by thin...

Got it for RM78 nett a night through the hotel website. We chosed this hotel whenever we can't get cheaper rate at Tune Hotel. It's about 20mins walk to New Lane, famous street food in Penang with several coffee shops nearby. Not ideal for tourist without a car, unless you are prepared to walk or take public transport as there's...

I stayed here for 3 nights with 2 mates, and the hotel got all the basics right for me : - clean room - comfy beds - good shower - effective aircon. I didn't go on holiday to watch TV so the limited channel choice wasn't an issue. The room was pretty spacious and decorated in a fairly modern and...

Spent a nite here in mid Jan 2010. It was quite easy to locate the hotel since it's one of the tallest building on this road. Check-in service was prompt and not much fuss. Room basic but sufficient for a good night sleep. Within walking distance to the eateries. Get a young coconut from the stall at the end of...

This is a spotless hotel within a short stroll to Komtar. We really enjoyed it here rather than on Jalan Penang as it was quiet, relaxing and within easy walking distance of places of interest in Georgetown. We found the staff friendly and polite and would certainly stay here again. Tip: At the end of the street there is a...
