Reviewed 19 June 2017

Location: Centrally located in Georgetown. About 7-10mins walk to Komtar bus station. 5-7mins walk to Penang Street. Good eateries around the hotel, like Tai Tong restaurant, a youtiao stall, good Wanton noodles restaurant nearby. Prangin Mall is also next to Komtar Station, offering local-type shopping merchandise. Area around the hotel also have quaint nice shops selling products.

Our room is on second floor and quiet even though window is facing Lebuh Cintra. In-room Wi-fi is good. Room amenities are standard and clean. Complimentary breakfast is very nice with different menus to choose from. We like the late breakfast timing (till 12noon), fresh fruits platter and the freshly-squeezed fruit juice, something that other big hotel cannot do.

Service staff were polite, especially Gary who recommended us a great Indian restaurant that have delicious nasi briyani, tandoori chicken, etc.

Overall, good location, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Hotel have limited rooms which makes it not as crowded as the bigger hotel.

Cons: No elevator. Folks with walking up stairs to their room will be a challenge.

Dear Meerk_1

Thank you for your very kind review and detailing the great amenities that surround our hotel. We are glad to hear you managed to enjoy lots of the wonderful food on offer, we often say guests need to pace themselves and have 10 small meals a day so well done for trying so many!
Sometimes the small details are missed when staying at large hotels so we are thrilled to read you appreciated all our efforts.

We look forward to welcome you all back again in the future.
Warm Regards
Nardya, Roberto & All The Team

Incredible charming and quite small hotel in an old and well maintained building. Everything was great. Extraordinary serviceminded and pleasant staff, very good breakfast with many choices in the nice restaurant.
The stay exceeded all expectations.

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. A refreshing drink and helpful insights into George Town is how it started.

The staff were Great! Super friendly and very helpful.

We loved our room and the Breakfasts were so good that it made it hard for us to leave room in our stomachs for the Food George Town is famous for.

Highly Recommend.

Highly recommended​. We had a pleasant stay here. Hotel is decorated in the traditional Malaysian style. Our room was clean and cozy. The property is nice and quiet at night, which was a surprise for us given that it's next to a street in Penang Chinatown. Breakfast was delicious. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Couldn't ask for better stay.

I believe all hotel owners in the world should spend some time here and learn how you should really run a good hotel.

The moment you arrive and the staff at reception welcome you by your name, give you a 10 minute introduction of George Town and hoist your luggage through the stairwell with a rope, you know this will be a special stay.

Rooms are lovely designed and extremely comfortable, especially the beds and shower. There's free, homemade ice tea in the fridge, nespresso coffee and fresh sweets or cake are delivered to your room around 4 PM.
The whole building is so well made and designed, the attention to detail is amazing.

Staff is as friendly and helpful as they exist, from the reception, cleaners and the crew in the good restaurant.

Breakfast is great, you can choose freely from the menu and get several servings of fresh juice and excellent coffees.

The total experience here is incredible and I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Many thanks.
