Yes we found it to be great walking distance to everything and some very 'non' tourist areas also. A great place to stay. The road is busy at the front, but is quite quiet within the property.

hi is the airport transfer complimentary? thxs
No but penang is small and it's not expensive to get around. There is also a bus from the airport which goes to Georgetown which is cheaper than a cab. Personally I just find a taxi easier. You could always try uber which I used in malaysia when I was there just last month. It was a great and again, cheap way to get around. Hope that helps.

"Ask for a room upstairs, it is quieter and away from the dining and pool."
"The room overlooking the pool can hear the noise from the pool"
"Family room "
"Go for a room looking over the inner courtyard if you can."
"Room 2 opens directly on to the pool — easily the best room available"
US$103 - US$169 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
