This hotel is good for travelers who return to the hotel at night. The room space is really suitable for the two of us, sometimes it can be bumpy.

Location right across hospital loh guan lye but no red light so not recommended for old people as busy street. Facility is OK standard good. Below got 7/11. The only lacking is the customer service. The lady in afternoon shift in short hair wear glasses stay there for 5 days never see her smile once and lack customer service communication. There is a way to talk to customer and definitely not her way lol the morning shift is not bad however there is a saying, one rotten egg can destroy whole dish. Train your employee properly as after all, this is a hospitality business. If the hotel owner is smart, they will train and make sure the employee know what hospitable and smile means to the business.

The AC is not working for the first day. I inform the staff the next morning, they did not fix it until I complain again. I tried to move to another room, the AC was in the same condition. At last they fix the AC. There was no AC in the loby area during my 5 days stay. And the room was dim, they should replace the light. The lift 's floor is cracked and not repaired. Overall the bulding management is bad.

About

Fort Cornwallis Padang Kota Lama is a good place to start off a day of visiting the old historic buildings in Georgetown. It is the largest standing fort in Malaysia built by the British East India Company in the late 18th century. Being named after the then Governor-General of Bengal, Charles Cornwallis, the fort never engaged in combat during its operational history. There is an enclosed park within where you will get to take a stroll along the fort perimeters while hearing the 1812 Overture playing over the speaker system. To make it feel more like colonial setting, there is a local man dressed in full British regalia stands at the gate and a wide range of informative exhibits available on the inside.


Spanning at 4490 sqft, the fort stands on the site where Captain Francis Light first set foot in 1786 on the then uninhabited Penang. He the took possession of the island from the Sultan of Kedah and established a free port to lure trade from Britain’s Dutch rivals. Fort Cornwallis is open for visitors daily 9 am to 10 pm. For a local adult visitor, the admission fee is RM10 while it is RM5 for a child. On the other hand, a foreigner visitor is charged RM20 for the adult and RM10 for a child. Located close to the Esplanade and Penang Clocktower, this place is easily accessible by public as well as private transport.

Clan Jetties of Penang

A Clan Jetty is a village built on stilts and these were built by some pioneer Chinese immigrants back to the old days.

They left their motherland and were to find jobs as stevedores and cross -channel ferry boatman in the bustling port of Penang. The water village is located straight down from Lebuh Chulia (beside the Kapitan Kling Mosque) at Pengkalan Weld. Each jetty is named after a Chinese clan. The setting at the jetties is perfect for those kodak moments.
