Very Bad
Very Good
I stayed here for 2 nights. It is close to island hospital (around 10-15mins walk). The room was in a good size. I booked the family room for 4 ppl with 2 queen size beds. The bed is really comfortable and i had a good night here. Also, the water pressure in the bathroom was really strong (it's a good thing). But there were not many restaurants around the hotel and the wifi is poor. Overall it was a good stay with a good price.

Not bad at all
It's a good hotel with a good price for service apartment. The room was clean and it has AC and hot/cold water as well in the bathroom. It has water dispenser in each floor, so whenever you need hot water for coffee or noodles, you just need to take it from the dispenser. Good internet connection also, but in the night somehow the wifi connection is lost. Overall it's good hotel, for the traveler who look for low budget hotel.

Average very avarage
Receptions nice, rooms very glooming and don't feel so clean. No even a fridge inside. Air con was there somewhere, but wasn't the best. The bathroom, shower and toilet the best part, clean and good water flow. The Worst things, wifi... truly the worst I have experienced and they should be embarrassed. Didn't even load a page. One important thing you need to check, my windows were locked, meaning if there happened to be a fire outside my room and I could not have escaped, a good chance I wouldn't make it out

Bad experience
The receptionist is friendly; you have to make 30RM deposit if you stay here, not a problem. The problem start when I go to the room, room is so dirty, so I complaint but the bell boy said, that's all they got. Finally I request for another room, the new room is better but unfortunately the electrical outlet is not working. I try to ask for repair since I need to recharge my mobile phone but he said "you could use our electrical outlet at the receptionist"; oh my... Sleep quality is really bad, you can hear when someone walking at the corridor. The bathroom provides both hot and cold water. Beware not to leave any sweets on the small table in the room, I left my snacks for couple hours (going out for shopping) only to find so many ants. In the next morning, I saw how the cleaning service clean the room carpet (the floor), they don't use vacuum cleaner, instead she only used broom stick; so how will you expect to get clean floor? I am concerned that they also employ a very old woman to be cleaning service. I stayed 4 days on this hotel, can't move to the other since I already booked and paid in advance. The first reason I choose this hotel because It is so close to the Loh Guan Lye hospital. If you plan to visit Penang with your family, better choose other hotels, there are many hotels around with same price but cleaner. Like many other reviewers, I would say, the internet is really bad, never expect to get free wifi here.
