We booked this hotel via Booking.com using our credit card to secure the room On arrival, and after filling out the relevant forms we were asked for payment as expected, at this point they disclosed it was only cash and we could not use our credit cards. Even when we showed them the booking that had no mention of the cash only policy. So, it is now late in the day and they are the most unhelpful staff we have met during our current year long trip (that bad), they would not even give us access to the WiFi to arrange another room. After nearly 3 hours and constant calls to Booking.com we finally agreed no cancellation fee would apply despite it being the hotels mistake....they would not agree to the waiver of the fee until I would not leave. They even showed me an email their manager had sent to Booking.com showing this was a regular occurrence. There are many very good hotels in Georgetown...stay clear of this one. We moved to the Royale Chelung 10 minutes away... fantastic service by very helpful people... It may have been a nice hotel, however the management and staff do not care!!! STAY WELL CLEAR

I think the management really need to work on customer service (front desk). I called to check if is it possible for me to perform early check in and I guess that the frontdesk didnt even really listen to my question properly before responding. Next, I arrived and about to check-in before I was told that the property only accepting cash. I knew there is a bank just nearby but do you know how inconvenience it is. Perhaps this info to be added in your property info to ease your guest. Being someone from customer service, I would say there is much more to improve in term of greetings, courtesy and body language. In term of facilities and amenities, all is satisfactory. The hotel design and strategic location are their selling point. With convenient store and Subway outlets, it helps if you need tp grab a quick meal. Note : a) If you travel with elderly, you may also request for a room at 1st floor (instead of 2nd floor) since the room is only accessible via staircase b) The rooftop is already closed for good. I have included to enjoy the sunset view in my list too. c) Please try the cafe next to the hotel as it is listed among the best cafe with a best coffee in town

We stayed here for our last night in Penang to be close to the ferry port as we were catching the 8.30 to Langkawi. The room was lovely and big the bathroom was amazing, especially in comparison to our last hotel Moustache Houze. The tiles on the stairs and reception are beautiful and it was nice to see they are preserving them in the rooms by covering them with wooden panels. They have exposed sections so you can see them. The only negative I have to say is that the windows are covered in almost a dull matt clear film do it's hard to see the view if the park opposite.

For Penang's standards, the rooms are ok and have all the facilities. Nicely located in front of the park. The room was clean but bathroom floor was quite dirty with hairs everywhere. Staff was very very nice but we still had to check out earlier than expected as the internet was working on and off and not at all in the room we were originally given, they had to change us room, but even so, didn't help much.

Considering its relatively cheap rate, overall this hotel is above my expectations. Its a heritage object: formerly chinese chamber of commerce - they had kept many details as it was, but it is really clean and tidy. It is also located perfectly on CAT free shuttle bus route (which gets you around Georgetown), and few steps away from several city's landmarks. Tips: There is a nice coffee shop and Subway downstairs; just walk about 100m to the south or take a CAT bus to find breakfast like locals.

The hotel is located in a great place. A lot of places are walkable from this place. We immensely enjoyed spending time in the park just opposite the hotel. The bus stop for the city hop - on - hop - off is merely 70 metres away. The rooms are huge and nice. They are also very clean. The only thing that put us off was the restaurant which we felt was slightly over priced as there weren't too many options on the menu. However, since there were a lot of good restaurants close by, finding a place to eat was never an issue. Overall a good staying experience!

The room was furnished nicely and extremely clean. Overall it looked very elegant and pleasant. Walking distance to the port and to the old town. The room faced a main road and there is no soundproofing, hence it was quite noisy. Some patches of humidity on the ceiling. The bathroom had no proper window, but rather a hole in the wall which could not be closed, so it was an easy way in for mosquitoes.

The building used to and still used as chamber of commerce except that upstairs now is hotel and restaurant. The room was clean the shower was hot and the ac unit was cold. Perfect. But one day back from out and about back to our room and still in messy condition. The room boy work a bit slow. You can ask front desk to solve this problem. Its minor but still bugging me. Other than that, I would gladly back to stay
