They came back around 12.30am, I thought the voices will stop after at most 1 hour. But with the scolding of young children, adults conversation, it lasted till 2am. I even...

The breakfast is a feast for your eyes and your stomach. The chef really cares about his diners and checks on them regularly. He also helps anyone...

Over the last two years, if I am on a visit to this new township of Seberang Jaya in Penang State, either for work purposes or on a family visit, this hotel has always been my choice. Being new I believe it's possibly one of the best hotels in Seberang Jaya. Like in the previous occasions, my wife and I...

Posh entrance area, friendly staff, very quick check in. Rooms are clean and new but not luxury - the do not have bath tubs apart from the presidential suite! Prices are reasonable and correspond with what is offered. Nice large health club with adjacent pool and bar area. At the right side of the entrance there is a nice cosy...

The light hotel is in the highland of the Penang city, not in the island itself. Which means that it is not near most of the attractions there. Even though, it is near the industrial area Kulim. Good for business trips, comfortable and have above average service. The room was average, but enough to do the job in a comfortable...

Stayed here a couple times now. Was previously staying at the Sunway hotel across the street. For a similar price, this is much better. Rooms are nice, great amenities. Excellent gym and breakfast. I really liked this hotel.
