The room is spacious, clean and cosy. Strong water pressure to have a good shower. Great location, street parking, walking distance to hunt for the Penang local foods and cafe hopping. Staff are friendly and attentive. Breakfast is so good to start our day! Definitely will come back again.

I loved this hotel! We upgraded to a double twin bed room, which was lovely and spacious. It had a separate dressing room and a couch. It felt like a nice suite really. The hotel is tastefully decorated with many original pieces and tile work. Of course, the staff was amazing, very helpful and on top of things. I also loved breakfast, you had a menu to choose from instead of a buffet, more tasty. They also offered a free high tea when we were there. Only thing I would ask, is to please make better coffee to go with the breakfast.

Nice and clean hotel. Room is a little small, but is okay considering the price. Bathroom is very small with very little space for movement. Location is near to everything. You can even walk to the heritage zone. Bus stop is right in front of Chowrasta Market.

Great location, very central to being able to walk around the city comfortably. The city is rich with culture and we did a lot of walking pursuing the Murals! The hotel is very clean and the staff is very pleasant!

Room tip: Be aware they have city-wide prayer time at 6 am on loud speaker..

Great Location, pleasant and clean rooms. Good place to stay. I really like their concept of Modern Heritage. Safe environment because this hotel is just beside the police station. Staffs are friendly and will greet you every time you pass by the lobby.
