The room seemed to be lacking in aeration as it had a very strong stench of smelly shoes just when we entered. The furniture and drapes were old and torn. Other than that, the only thing we loved was the shower.

A very good place to stay when travelling on a budget. Ambiance was good. During our stay we hardly experience any sort of disturbance. As it is a budget hotel, rest services are available at an extra cost. Though add-ons are not much expensive. Location is pretty good as its within George town. George town being a world heritage city,... More

Friendly staff greets you every time. Overall the stay is pleasant. Only issue is the wifi which is very slow and weak. If it is free, I will have no comment but since the hotelier is charging for the service, they should make sure the service is value for money.

- Small double room - No TV 📺 - No parking, there is a private parking at back for 1RM/hour or 6RM a day. + good location if you want to be in city center + Cheap price + staff were polite I think this one worth what you pay for.

A big plus point for me would be when I first walk in to a hotel room and it smells of fresh laundry. This was how we found our room on our third stay. One thing that was consistent on all three visits was that the bed linen and towels were very clean with no visible stains. I found a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Staying true to our unique no frills concept, we provide you a good night's sleep at outstanding value. Our hotels come with high quality beds, power showers, 24-hour security system, and are conveniently located near transportation hubs and popular local attractions. Unnecessary costs are kept at bay by eliminating facilities that you might not need such as swimming pools, gyms, spa rooms etc. Stay within walking distance to the famous dining places of George Town like the famous Lorong Selamat Char Koay Teow. Penang's most famous beach, Batu Ferringhi, is half an hour's drive away from our hotel. The famous hawker centre along Gurney Drive is a must try, and so is the New World Park located right next door to us. ... more   less
