After an ordeal at the Grand Alora in Alor Setar, we decided to look for a hotel of acceptable standards just for a night before our journey back to Kuala Lumpur. Something descent and safe, something we could stay and not have to be worried over the night. Need not be our usual 5-star rated so long it is descent for a good night sleep.

Using Booking.com we were able to find a hotel of descent review standards and at the last minute. Being a school holiday and all, it was not easy looking for one. Rated as 4 star, this hotel located in Seberang Perai is about 15-20 minutes drive from Penang was an ideal stop over for us. There are many restaurants and shops within walking distance from a simple 24 hours eateries to the more upmarket steak house. Not far from here is also a huge shopping mall that has all the retails set up for your needs.

The hotel itself is not one of those really grand hotel that has majestic entrances with granite-marble finishing. Nevertheless, we were greeted promptly and service was very efficient. They found our booking and made arrangements for check in and baggage delivery almost immediately despite having a crowd to deal with. Parking here is easy and aplenty.

Although we were booked for the club floor, we were placed on the lower floor citing that they were trying to accommodate our request for an adjoining room. Minibar were complimentary and the room came with a complete set of accessories with robes, slippers, towels etc. in terms of quality, I would say the items were of mid-range and pretty standards. Beds were comfortable and the fittings were clean.

The access to the 15th floor was a bit of problem as the keycards they gave us did not gave us access. Had to go down to reception several times to get that sorted. The "club lounge" was a long stretch lounge which had only tables and chairs for dining, but no sofas. They serve late tea and is managed by one of their staff. The staff is extremely courteous and served us well. The selection of food was nice but were mainly finger foods. Similarly, breakfast was served pleasantly by the staff and the food selection was edible. I left my glasses there, and the staff were honest and quick to deal with lost items.

On the overall, the experience in this hotel has been rather pleasant and the services are expected of a 4 star hotel. However. As along term stay hotel, this may not be a choice hotel. Service is good and you can expect a good night stay here. So, what is not so good about this hotel?

1. Despite rising up to more than 15 floors, the hotel has only 2 passenger lifts. It is usually crowded and waiting for your turn can be a long wait. Also, waiting to get down from your room floor to the lobby can a bit of a wait.
2. The hotel is rated as 4 stars and the reason is because it does not have a swimming pool. For people having kids, not having a pool is a no-no.
3. The gym is dated and ill equipped. I really was not impressed here and was hoping for better.

Other than this, the hotel is fine.
