It's an old hotel. Cleanliness has to improve and required major upgrade. Meal is not too bad for the price, I can't ask more. Parking in house and it's very convenient. Mattress is good for me but I believe it quite hard for other. Pillow only two and it's too small for an adult. Bath towel also very small. Overall it's not the best stay but not too bad as well.

Reasonable price, very suitable for family vacation.
the bed is a little hard. other than that it's a great place
Great location for local food, easy parking and.
Everything seems ok. But the design seems old school to me. RM150 deposits per room seems too much.
The room is comfy but the aircond not very cold and the breakfast menu need to upgrade for more choice.
Lack of facilities eg: iron/hair dryer
The executive room was spacious. Great location near to popular food places. However it was so noisy on the night during the weekends. It's like there's a speaker of club playing clubbing songs and we were totally couldn't get to sleep soundly. It's continue all night long till 7am!
Next trip will book again, all staff co-operate, thank you.

Good, overall.
Quite nice stay. Is quite old hotel, i do wish they could have do some renovate works to make the hotel even better as some of things are quite in old fashion. Bed quite comfy and nice view from the top floor.

Very run down
Pay what you get. Poor toiletries but room pretty sizable. Surprisingly good view of the sea. Opt for high floor. Bed creaks badly. Consolation is the smooth bedsheet after many wash I suppose. Bathroom is poorly cleaned. Upkeep terrible. Breakfast is awful. Little selection like mass canteen. Hotel heavily under staffed, guess this applies all over Penang with the booming economy.

Looking out from inside
By the corner between jalan penang and jalan sultan ahmad shah (northam road)...across the road..one reaches upper penang road..lies discos..restaurants and clubs. Minimarkets stood nearby..so does famous sup hameed during the night...where patrons enjoying their meals. Hope the receptionists be more polite to guests...taxis who came to fetch guests from the hotel...to their destinations instead of having to say otherwise...guests left by other means of transport.

Nice hotel
This is my 2nd time and this time with my family. The family rooms is comfy but the breakfast quite not so good like before. Staff is helpful and facilities is nice as usual. Really recommend for family trips.

Terrible and disgusting hotel
Their website looks great... The pictures look great.... The 'special' last minute booking was great.... but the place was terrible. What a disappointment! Reminds me of the song "The Simple Bare Necessities." Toilet would not flush, despite 4 calls to maintenance to fix it - human waste stuck in toilet for hours every day - how disgusting! No safe. Thankfully there was a kettle and some coffee/tea. WiFi was non-existent. Reception staff surly and unhelpful. I guess you get what you pay for - no more 'last minute deals' on Agoda for me - lesson learned!
