Very good quality / price ratio. Our rooms were very spacious and spotless. We had a deluxe room with sea view (no sea view, but we were out all day on the trail). Windows are not well insulated, so do street noise. But we found it cozy. Entrance was remodeled, so a shabby temporary entrance at the back. Excellent free parking in the garage. At walking distance of eateries. Perfectly located. Not in the center of Georgetown, but that was easily accessible. Because you were not in the center, you could quickly find your way to the rest of the island.
We got a big room for 5 and stay their 1 night. The room is clean and they let us check out at 1pm (later than normal). However wifi can not reach the room (just in the same floor), location is not really good as well as it’s outside George Town. Luckily when we came out of the hotel we met a really good local taxi driver who took us the whole day around Penang and became like a tourguide for us. He was soo humourous and kind, took us to wherever us want and it’s convenient since we have 5 and only private car can take more than 4. His name is Francis, phone number: 013 500 2418. Staff atitude is friendly. Choose this if you go in big group and want a good price.
