The room is very big and clean, exactly like what we saw online. Everyone is friendly and nice. They have no taxi services provided, but upon my request, the front desk lady immediately book for me using her own grab account. Excellent service! cheap rate good hotel good service! definitely worth the price! will come back next time for sure.

Review by Traveloka users

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

There was a very heavy rain which lead to flood in Penang. The wind was so strong that it blew the wall paint from outside to inside of the car park. Our car was park inside and the whole car was covered in paint. Hotel offered to wash our car but they told us to come back immediately as we was already out for our family affair. So we washed our car on our own and wanted to pass the hotel the receipt to claim but they told us its natural disaster so cannot be claim.

Large room, comfort, very clean, good location
The room is very well equip with microwave, wifi, fridge and kitchen but the TV channel is very limited not so much of international channel. They have 24 hour convenient stores just downstairs. I like that they provide simple toiletries and towel.
Only top up toiletries for 2 days even though I've stayed for 6 days
Very nice accomodation. All the facilities are new. Comfortable bed.Their workers are friendly and helpful. Like a home away from home.
beside is food court, take supper every night . very comfortable and nice to stay with family

Very Bad
Very Good
Spacious & clean room
Stayed a night in a Family Suite. Very spacious & clean suite. King size bed in the bedroom & a double bed in the hall. Friendly staff. Good location with a food court just round the corner. Should improve on the TV channels.

Great rooms, will improve when it's finished.
Wow, the rooms are big, so much room, one could say too much room for the furniture in it. The kitchen is nice but again, too much cupboard space for the lack of plates, cups and glasses. We had booked for 3 but were told it had only gone through for 2 so if we wanted an extra towel and sheets on the sofa bed, we would have to pay more, we refused but what was disgusting is they would let us sleep on the sofa bed without sheets, they seem to think sheets are only for our benefit and don't realise it keeps the sofa clean. Anyway we decided to just share the king size bed as it is easily big enough for 3. If you read this setting off on your trip, take note the TV is new with USB input but there is only free to air Malaysian TV, no cable, no English,take along a USB drive with things to watch cos you'll soon get sick of crapTV. For your fitness there is a small gym with about 5 workout stations, good for 3 people tops. In the gym there is a washing machine and a dryer perfect for your gym gear on quick 20 min wash but unfortunately other guests bring up week loads of washing and use full 2 hour cycle so to see it not in use is a rarity. It will improve when it's finished, they will have keys cards that work, the lifts may allow you to go to the gym instead of having to take the stairs. They may get more TV channels, a restaurant and maybe even a bar. Meanwhile though, they are cheap rooms, it has shops nearby and you can get everywhere fairly cheaply with Uber. BTW, If there is 3 of you, it is well worth going everywhere with Uber. We went from the airport to Tropics 8 by bus (RM5.40 for 3) but takes a while and you need to walk about 1.2 km from where you get off the bus, Uber would have been RM20. When we left Tropics 8 we went to Butterworth Bus station by Uber (RM60), to Ipoh terminal by bus (RM49.50) and Uber to Ipoh central (RM14), Total RM125. I know it's more but the Uber driver who picked us up from Tropics 8 said he would take us to Ipoh central for RM200 cash, that would've been much better.

Excellent room, good location
Most of the staff at this hotel are friendly. The location is great as it has a few nice cafes around it and a great hawker center about 5mins walk away. The food there is really good! The hotel is also just a short drive away from Gurney where you can get your shopping fix at Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon. The hotel itself is still very new and the ground floor has not been completed yet so there is just the hotel reception area, the gym, free parking and laundry facilities. The decor is excellent and modern and the room was very spacious and clean. It is exactly what you see in the photos! In general the hotel felt more like a serviced apartment, which can be a good thing if you stay for longer periods. I will probably come back here again. Hope the management keeps the hotel well maintained as it is now!

Quick weekend trip
The hotel is a like a shop lot converted into a hotel at the end of a stretch of shop houses. Interior is renovated and up to date. Convenient location, very near Gurney Plaza & Gurney Paragon, Botanic Garden. Opposite the hotel is a famous local school, if weekdays there would be heavy traffic but for weekend, no worries about bad traffics. There is a pharmacy, Korean eatery and local food along the same stretch of the hotel. The hotel is still very new, understand that it is about 1 year old. Interior very new and clean except for under the bed, a bit dusty. Happened to moved the bed a bit and saw the underside of the bed. Our room cannot take long shower as the water drainage is slow or has blockages despite being a new floor. No bathtub only standing shower. The security guard at the door was also the porter. Small reception counter. One of the reception staff helped us book a Grab too.

Super comfy
Welcoming and friendly staff. A very spacious suite. Good wifi. Bathroom is big and superb. They even have a sofa bed so you can watch Tv comfortably. Parking is provided and super safe. Curfew is 11pm but no worries, you can always call the guard to open the gate for you. A very pleasant stay. Good location as well
