Pretty rooms but not much else. Thumping bass from nightclub which only stopped around 5am prevented us for getting much rest before our early morning. Rooms are really spacious but not terribly well maintained. Sound insulation from the street is non existent, every motorcycle driving by can be heard. WIFI can only be used to load the most basic things, super slow for any real streaming. Very well priced but I definitely won't be back.

Checked into this hotel and was so wowed by the decor ,the beauty and the serenity of the place till 11pm when the club or bar across the street started playing thumping music. The bass could be clearly heard in the room and all the peacefulness was gone. Was looking forward to a restful sleep but that all gone. Yes , the hotel is along the main road and I'm not complaining of the occasional street traffic or passing car but the dodgy thumping club bass across is simply ridiculous. Called the hotel and they could do nothing. What a pitym when you can't look forward to a good night sleep. A hotel has failed it core duty. It should also List in its hotel description that the hotel faces the main road, has no proper lobby for cars to stop and.no breakfast. I think it due for a refresh

Never have I had such mixed and polar feelings about a hotel. All of the service, the actual building, and the location gave me extremely good and bad experiences.The Indian lady who came to fetch me was get courteous and friendly. The first impression of the room was fantastic - high ceiling, spacious, fully equipped kitchen and tasteful, stylish decor. Location-wise it is smack in the middle of historic Georgetown with easy access to the most delicious food. Seems too good to be true and it was. Came back after 21:00 when the front desk is unmanned and discovered all the things I didn't hope for. My key card got demagnetized and there was nobody to help. I was finally able to find this gentleman who sat outside (not in uniform). Turns out he was the security guard who managed to get me someone to get me into my room. The service attitude was great, but the scare was too much. Then, I realized the toilet was not cleaned - human excrement in toilet bowl. Wifi is at a speed that it is virtually not functional. The redeeming two points were the hot and stable shower and the very comfy beds. The air conditioner is not cold even when it was set to the strongest possible setting, so sleeping with the blanket is not an option. Crazily loud music with heavy bass blasts outside somewhere and even with my 3M earplugs I could not block it out. Cars and motorcycles also zoom by very loudly throughout the night. Until the morning the road right next to the rooms made sure you would not be able to catch any snoozes. It is rather torturous when the body is already that tired and the bed is so comfortable, yet you get waken up after each motorcycle. What a torn experience at such a pretty hotel.

Stop searching and book this place immediately, it would be your best bet for the best of what Penang has to offer. The UNESCO World Heritage Award shines brilliantly in the area’s restructuring efforts, from the windows to the wall, till the sweat drips of every person involved in the remake of this absolute gem. Everyone in their right mind knows that Penang has a notorious reputation for being a food haven, and the location of this gem is another point of contention. Steps away from hearty nasi kandar, a short stroll from famous char koay teow, and wash the heat away with ice kachang that has been around for almost as long as the building itself, all within 10 minutes walk! You could even head to Chowrasta market for souvenirs to bring home, and you’ll still barely break a sweat. The staff members of this charming property also deserve the highest of praise, striking a sincere balance of being helpful and respecting privacy. There is therefore no excuse to be looking elsewhere, you’d be having a hard time trying to get the best of all worlds. From the rooms, to the locations, to the people, charming is the understatement of the year, and I look forward to coming back whenever I seek for a short getaway!
