Review by Traveloka users

5 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

The room was spacious and nice, price also reasonable and staff are very nice and friendly. When I stay there, outside of my room have construction and it still on going on Sunday early morning, not suggest if you want a good sleep until late noon. It was located at the corner of the main road and you will listen car sound all the time. The bed was hard, personally prefer softer so I don't really like it. Besides the outside conditions, everything was good and definitely worth for the price!
Comfort place for family, kitchen set ready, microwave, sofa for family relax, free minibar and soft drink in refrigerator. CCTV outside the main door for secure. Front desk officer not ready 24 hours.
Very love this place so much ! Fantastic !
Stunning rooms, good location but no hot water or breakfast!! For the price charged, I expected hot water at least and would've liked breakfast thrown in.
Wonderful and functional rooms. Heritage sites all within walking distance. Great location. Audible traffic noise due to proximity to main road. Rooms without a view.

Shaped like boat
Shaped of a boat but on land between jalan Penang and jalan Burma..in the olden days...it was once a popular chinese restaurant...as of today..it changed to rooms to let. As it was at the heart of town...it would be convenient to stroll...towards three shopping malls interconnected..from Komtar...Prangin Mall...1st Avenue. Even one could taste a bowl of delicious of cendol...as you stand while eating...it could be a long queue. Instead of taking buses...you could also take a walk to visit places of interests near you..a visit to heritage sites..street art...

Quaint Boutique hotel, nice rooms & location.
Stayed for one night, and wasn't sure what to expect as this was booked by my travel colleague on a trip. We both were allocated the upper floor units (there are also ground floor units) and I was quite pleased at the decor & size of the room. Decor is a mix of Industrial/vintage (exposed Brick walls) mixed in with some contemporary touches, wood flooring and the semi open concept for the washroom where the sink is divided from the Beds by a glass panel. The shower & WC have their own separate compartments which have doors for obvious reasons. What was interesting was the drinks,snacks and instant noodles in the kitchenette was complementary, and needless to say that you have bottled water provided. This might be their way of making up for the lack of a cafe there, but being Penang, lots of local food can be had in almost any direction, especially along Penang Road. Beds were comfy and didn't have any issues getting a good night's rest. My colleague complained about ants in his room, and having them get into his luggage, laptop and so on. Upon informing the staff (the people managing the place go off at around 6pm or so, but a contact number is available to reach them) if he could change rooms, he was told that the staff will help spray and try to take care of the issue, but they were fully booked and no other rooms were available to be switched to. If you drive, you'll have to park along the lane (Jln Khoo Sian Ewe) by the mosque and the hotel staff will provide a whole day parking coupon for you (on request). But this is still parking on a public parking lot, so anything can happen to the vehicle, versus a dedicated hotel parking lot.

Great location but might be a little noisy for light sleepers
It's relatively new (they've been operating for a year-ish). The furnishings and decor is a chic amalgamation of old world charm and modern finishings. The room was a lot larger than it looked in the pictures. Super comfy with good firm beds and well equipped with a mini kitchenette complete with induction cooker and dining utensils for two. The little inclusions such as the local choice of coffee and tea plus the famous Penang white curry mee, together with the mini dino plush toy (which you're welcome to take home) were the little touches that went a long way in making one feel welcome. Located right at the corner of Burma road and Penang road - for me the location was great! Central and literally just across the road from Joo Hooi (one of the more popular places for Assam laksa and cendol). Unfortunately for light sleepers, the rooms all face the very busy Penang road - hence, it might be a little too noisy. I am fortunate enough to be blessed with supernatural sleeping powers and can practically sleep through my house alarm - so this wasn't a problem for me. I didn't get a chance to try their cafe and bar because it happened to be closed for a private function on the day I arrived (I departed early next morning). The staff who greeted me (Lionel I think his name was) was really friendly and helpful. They also arranged for my early morning taxi to the airport. Being a boutique hotel - it is short of the typical amenities such as pool, gym etc but who's got time for that when you're in Penang anyway right? Note: I ended up here because I was feeling adventurous and decided to go with one of agoda's "mystery bookings" (proclaimed to be the last room no less), no doubt tempted by the steep discount (more than 60pct!) that was advertised. After I completed my booking and the location was revealed to me - I did a quick search online, only to discover that the current prices offered was circa the "discounted price" anyways - so I felt somewhat misled by agoda's advertising and what I deem to be false promises of a steep discount. Overall I'd say that for ~rm270 per night, it's fairly reasonable for a boutique hotel, room of this sort and its central location. Another note: it's very hard for cars to stop in front of the entrance as it's right smack at a key junction and on a pretty busy main road. Would advise to stop at the parallel road behind the hotel. The walk to the hotel entrance shouldn't take you more than 60/70 steps.

This hotel was probably one of the most stunning rooms we stayed in while traveling around Malaysia. The rooms are well equipped with everything you may need. I loved every part of this hotel and would definitely stay again. The staff were lovely as well. In previous reviews they do talk about the noise level even though it's on a busy road we had a good nights sleep. The one thing to note down is that reception is available to 8pm, however you are given a code to enter the hotel after hours. The hotel does not offer breakfast but there is a small kitchen in your room if you want to make something, however Penang is full of great food and cafes. There is a cafe next door to the hotel which we had breakfast one morning that share the same name with the hotel but we don't think it's part of it.

Excels in design, falls flat in service
Beautifully restored shophouses with stylish interior finishing. Love the exceptionally private enclave as you walk towards the room. But that's just about it. Falls flat in service, downright cold. Considering that you only have "5 luxuriously appointed suites" and that you require guests to provide the estimated arrival/check-in time, you should be acknowledging/greeting your guests by their booking names! The fact that there was only 1 piece of form on the reception table shows that I was the only one checking-in at that time should have warranted a warm and personalised welcome but instead, the receptionist just told me to "give me your IC or passport number". Location is a double-edge sword. On one hand, it's within walking distance to some of Penang's best street food (Teochew Cendol, Sup Hameed, Ming Xiang Tai egg tarts, Joo Hooi cafe, Chowrasta market, Kimberley Street). However, all rooms are facing an extremely busy street near Komtar so even till late, you'll still hear sounds from the streets. One might argue that it's an authentic experience of 'living in a shophouse'. Not recommended for light sleepers.
