I simply love breakfast here. They have a fine array of street foods with some extras. On certain days , they have Nasi Lemak with sambal kerang. Everyday they have kuewtiaw goreng fried on the spot and a host of other multicultural Malaysian food. They have dim sum, roti canai, puri , mi hun suM as well as nasi goreng alongside normal intercontinental fares like bread and butter with eggs and sausages - just to name some. The croissont is baked fresh and replenish quite often as most food are. As for drinks, its like most hotels but the specialty is the teh Tarik prepared much like the hawker’s style.

Stayed a couple of times and loving it. From the size of the room, in-room amenities to their wide spread of breakfast. Will always be back to this hotel. Only one thing they need to SERIOUSLY look into if their bathroom ventilation...some sort of wet/damp/musty smell within the bathroom. Luckily the smell doesn't escape to the room but still it isn't nice to get such a smell whenever u walk in to the bathroom!

The hotel claims to be 5-star, but in my opinion, I felt that the quality of the room, the amenities and toiletries are more inclined to 4-star. Having said that, everything in the room was in tip-top condition. For me, this hotel is amazing for 2 reasons. First, is the staff. From the janitor, technician, waitress, front desk and up to the manager, all of them greeted my family with such warmth and enthusiasm to make our stay comfortable. Honestly, the level of service, courtesy and professionalism from every one of them is the best I have ever experienced, even comparing to 5-star hotels globally. Secondly, the food. Penang is known for great food and this hotel delivers that. The spread for the buffet breakfast is superb and surprisingly tasty. I say surprising because normally local food served in hotels will not be as authentic as the local restaurants or hawkers. I must say that this hotel kitchen puts in effort to ensure food is just as good. The "teh tarik" is a must!

We came back after satisfactory stay, it’s still good hotel but we feel the quality has gone down a bit, the toiletries choices were different, they used to have this wonderful scrub soap but it just a normal soap now, the bathroom need a bit of tlc, our room had that ugly water mark on the ceiling. Other than that, everything was perfect, wonderful breakfast with lots of choices.
