Hotel is nice, just that there 's some lights that is not functioning. There 's a lot more lights inside the room so its not so big of an issue. The right side of the bed doesn't have a plug point, another small detail as well, not big of a deal. For the value that I'm paying for, I think its worth it.

The hotel location is really strategic… it is really close to the heritage street and surrounded by many beautiful buildings…. The only complaint I got only for the cleaning time, as we stay there the time for room cleaning is really unfortunate. There is 1 day when our room was not clean up. Other than that everything is perfect

The check-in & check out process was smooth; Improved than before. Free & safe parking. Location is great; Penang CAT bus stop is just a few steps away. The room was comfortable & clean. The breakfast hall was spacious; We were using the hall on the 1st floor. However, the service could be better as we had to find our own seats; Preferably if the staff can arrange the seats for us.
