I know about this property cause I have stay in east indies before. So, I decided to give this hotel a try since under the same group and it kind of turn to a disaster. 1) Comfort * I booked this hotel for 5 nights. When I booked, the rooms shows with window but I was given a room with no window and I have to complain to change it. I checked in quite early and I don't understand why they have given me kind of the worst room though. The room was leaking here and there. The property is old and not maintained. You can literally see it's leaking quite many places. Towels are not provided on time and both room I went into , no towels provided. I have to ask many times to get towel. Everyday I have to remind them to change towel on daily basis. They have 2 housekeeping staffs, one Rose who was a better staff and the other one called Miriam/Mariam. When I asked for towel, she can reply me back " I gave you 2 towels yesterday, you are alone. Either i'm alone or with someone or if I happened to date someone, isn't that the hotel duty to change my towel on time everyday? Besides, they only change the towels at night due to their laundry system. 2) Service The front office staff called someone like Rain, helpless. She doesn't smile to you and doesn't care if you are a guest. She treats you like you owe her money. Not service orientated at all. When you asked about wifi, the WiFi is down. Thats it. When you complain to her, she doesn't even show her concern to help you to resolve the issues. 3) Cleanliness Its a old building and not maintain. Rooms are leaking here and there. The room I stayed, they have ants. And pillow case was not been changed. Whenever you look for a housekeeper, and you told them to touch up the room. By late evening I came back around 7/8 , its still not clean. Literally, the only good thing about this place is Location. Otherwise, big screwed up The hotel team owns few property in Georgetown, and I guess you guys should learn and invest on training and service orientated courses to improve the service level. Besides, the staffs are pinoy, I have nothing against them and I have friends and colleagues who are pinoy. They are known to be super good in terms of service industry but this hotel staffs screwed up.
- Family vacation
Spacious and clean room with private bathroom, simple but nice breakfast for free, hot and cold drinking water dispenser, quite close to hawker center and komtar, good value for money. Narrow steep stairs with no elevator, near karaoke and futsal center so it can get loud at night (not suitable for light sleeper), weak WiFi
- Romantic Vacation
The room is quite dusty, noise air conditioner, but the staff is very good
- Medical Travel
Considered good for a traditional-style budget hotel, good location in the heart of Penang. However, they should provide a legit shower gel!
- Family vacation
I’m not staying there again. There is no slippers inside the room. The room is very old fashioned. The worst part is at night time there are nearby karaoke and futsal club. So it was very noisy. The hot water in shower broke down too and they have to wait until “tomorrow” for their technician to come. The breakfast provided is very mediocre.
- Shopping & Culinary
My room is leaking. The staff cover it with towel but still water came out nonstop from the parquet slit. Ask to change room, but they said they fully book and they ignore me. I’m not gonna come to this hotel again.
- Family vacation
It's all good. A hotel with a home stay concept maybe.
- Romantic Vacation
Rude and impolite receptionist. Noisy room. No tv. No toiletteries. This will be the first and last i'll stay here.
Effective 1 September 2017, hotel guests who are non-Malaysian or non-Permanent Residents of Malaysia are required to pay a tourism tax of MYR 10 nett per night per room forsee more
