Okay is not the most fancy place you can go, but the hotels location is great.

Rooms are huge with goods beds. Bathroom: seperate bath and shower.

Good wifi.

Breakfast; especialy the coffee could do with improvement.

However all in all great place to stay

Charmaine at checkin was awesome. We had a non refundable/non changeable Reservation for 2 king rooms, and when we checked in we requested a change to twin rooms. She not only changed our rooms, but gave us adjoining rooms and sent up a baby crib without us even having to ask. Awesome!

Much later in the evening when we got back from our event we had left our key in the room and the helpful folks at the front desk made us a new one lickity split. Very helpful.

Breakfast had a good variety and the staff were very accommodating as we had a toddler and an infant.

The L4 pool deck is very relaxing and was a nice touch.

All in all, while the hotel is definitely showing its age, its location and ease of access to the heritage area of town was great. A lot of negative reviews had issues at checkin and check out, but for us was a breeze.

Very centrally located n opposite the iconic E&O hotel n walking distance to good hawker food. The rooms are spacious n clean. Bathroom was spacious with Sep shower stall n bathtub.
Room didn’t come w breakfast.
Wifi signal was very poor n the hotel limited each room to 3 devices only which was inconvenient. The signal was also intermittent. Very hard to work.

Room Tip: There is a new wing, perhaps rooms r better. Not sure.

I continue to give the Hotel top marks and still highly recommended. A couple of problems with the room were rectified by maintenance promptly.

On the last couple of days checking out on 3rd October, there was a lack of attention to detail by the housekeeping dept maid.

Stayed: September 2018, traveled as a couple

Friendly, helpful staff from Doorman to Reception to Housekeeping. Kept spic and span. Ideally located from City Centre, just a stone's throw away. Plenty of the famous street food of Penang just a short walk away. Recomend it without hesitation!!!

Room Tip: Had a city view room, just as interesting with many old buildings, the old ferry Services,main land in view.
