    Inconsistent housekeeping with pungent smell coming from the toilet. Toilet floor get very wet after shower due to poor design of shower screen, no sound proof - very noisy & heard doors opening & closing

    Located just 10 minutes walk from Komptar bus station, and 25 from colonial Georgetown this hotel provides you with great service, great bed and linens and big bathroom with a great shower. Breakfast included great papaya and great coffee.
