A nice hotel, near food court, just in front of the hotel.!

Near to the Durian Stall, and many food stall near the hotel. The staff extremely friendly.
A lot of foodcourt. Nice place as well. Easy access.
Basic hotel with nice decoration. Breakfast is ok. Location is very convenient given it's near Georgetown and very near to a lot of eateries. Parking is just nice enough. Busy hotel.

Average hotel
Check-in was fast and the rooms were clean with welcome notes. The room was spacious too but the window of the room was too small and one can hardly open it. The breakfast was good but the bar timings were till 9pm. The swimming pool and the fitness center were too congested. The room service was good and it was near to all major locations in George Town.

Funky hotel with good service but a lot of improvement needed
The check-in was quick and the staff was friendly. The room was clean and the welcome notes were cute but the room windows were too small. The loo had no window and there were very less switches in the room. The breakfast was good but when asked for items that were finished in the buffet, the staff never brought more eatables. The pool area and the fitness center were too congested and small. The location is near most of the main locations for tourists. Overall experience was good.

Good Location, nearby many nice restaurants
Just across the hotel, there is a dim sum restaurant that i believe is quite famous since many people are eating there with cheap price and delicious meal. The hotel is not so far from Gurney Plaza mall, taking Uber will cost around 5-6 RM. Also just across the street, there is 24 hours convenient store. Hotel is near Sun Yat Sen memorial building. In the afternoon, nearby there are many food courts with so many variant food.

Hotel is located close to lorong selamat and nagor lane for food. The rooms are clean and tidy, wifi is provided and swift check in. Down side: breakfast spread has little variety and there are no toilets that were useable in the lobby during my stay. Gym and pool area has no close shower place. Not convenient for late check outs.

Great Location,
However, parking can be increase and more cater to guest. Location is good with all local food around. More variety of breakfast should be provide. Staff were super friendly. Especially the house keeping staff
