The location is very strategic, 7-11 and laundry in front of the hostel. The place is also a bus stop right in front of the hostel. The bathrooms are clean, free drinking water available and also free wifi.

Nice to been staying at this hotel, the deco is beautiful (east meet west) but the ciggarate smell from the pub downstairs at night is not suitable for family vacation.....

Great place. Near to go everywhere

It was like staying inside a museum, because the building is an old Chinese shophouse and they have big Chinese portrait on the wall. The first floor is a bar so you will hear noise music at night. The hostel is in the second floor, when I was staying there, I was the only guest. So it was only myself in the second floor and I could choose any bed that I want. Overall it's kinda cool living inside museum-alike/bar/Chinese temple but kinda creepy because of the loneliness

Overall it's good but Friday night is noisy due to party going on at front premise
Location is central. The deluxe room was clean although has insects. I think this may be normal in restored pre-war shophouses.

We took the family room and it was situated on the ground floor next to the parking area. We checked in quite late in the afternoon and was told by the staff that tonight there will be a party right there at the bar which was literally next to our room. We asked for the rooms upstairs but was not able to get it as the hotel staff was unable to accommodate. Unfortunately we had to endure one sleepless night and checked out the next morning. Please consider If you plan to sleep in your room..

Excellent place for peoplewatching
First night we arrived in George Town. In desperate need for something cold to drink and what better place than The Tavern for this.. Located directly on a very busy street it is a excellent place for people-watching. Good selection of beers as well .

Just have a drink
Really enjoyed that moment, the waiter (Sid) was really helpful and welcome. I have appreciated the way he was talking to the customers and I loved the music. A musician was playing guitar.thanks a lot.

Cold Beer!
Called in get a cold beer after slogging the streets of George Town. There seems to be a lack of beer stops in George Town so this was a real surprise. Very smart inside and cool too. Very clean too. Beer was really cold and went down a treat! Didn't eat but menu looked good.
