Although room looks clean enough, ants will surround any food on table, Caterpillar bugs alike crawling in room. Noisy aircon compressor ahead, making banging sounds every 5 to 10 mins, hardly can get a good sleep.
Lovely small hotel with eclectic heritage vibe to it. I wish to see some of the level 2 rooms be converted to "Reunion Suites" with 1 bed and separate living area instead of 2 beds. It will appeal more to the couples and solo travellers wishing for more privacy and luxury. Pros: Cheap, strategically located, nice touch on the fittings etc Cons: Bedframe too low to my liking Room tips: Upgrade to the better rooms on level 2, if you don't mind climbing the flight of stairs as there's no lift.
Location was good near the jetty and walking distance to all sights but hotel is not ideal if you have mobility issues as there are 30 steps to climb to the first floor and double that for second floor. Check in is actually the shop cashier.. it took me a while to figure it out. You will be carryong all your stuff to your room as there is nobody available to help, so pack light. The room was of a good size but nothing like the picture of the Deluxe room I had booked. Room is ok need a repair here and there but well equipped including kettle and iron. Bathroom is strange... if you take a shower you flood the whole bathroom as there is no shower curtain or cubicle. Make sure you make nbr 1 , nbr 2 or combo before taking your shower. Overall is fair balance of a budget hotel vs cost, nothing more nothing less.…
Spend 1 night in Penang and I choose this property to stay. Room was great and Everything is great, Room was spacious and clean. Beds are comfortable The location of this hotel is the highlight. It's a walking distance to everywhere e.g. the jetty, cafes, restaurants etc.
Room was small. Ants keep coming but nothing sweet is on the table. Also ants managed to enter the fridge but eventually died. On our last night, hotel blacked out for 3hours. Staff didnt even knock on our door to apologise (only 9 room in total for the whole building). Non sound proof wall. Water mild hot. If you have small children and carry big luggage, stay away from this hotel bcos the staff wont help you. Eventho alot of comments said asked for ground floor, ground floor is convenient store. For 1st floor room there are still alot of steps to climb. Will not come back. One time is enough.
