    The hotel indeed has seen its better days. The super deluxe room did not disappoint us. Amenities are basic but adequate. Room is huge and the kids get to run around. However, the room tend to have a musty smell when we first step in....More

    It was a last minute trip to Penang for client requirement and it being holiday season for children, this was one of the few hotels that had available rooms. The hotel looks dodgy and very old. Every corner of the hotel is asking for renovation....More

    Good budget hotel, clean and cozy hotel, this property has been around for awhile. Plenty of restaurants and bars surrounding the hotel to keep you busy while exploring the local culture. Do walk behind the hotel to explore some nice wall arts around the streets...More

    The hotel is old and has had its better days probably more than 10 years ago BUT the rooms are huge with a fab view over Georgetown/Penang. Breakfast is a buffet which is okish but nothing fancy. Good location tho.
