on entering the lobby there is a musty smell to the whole place, check in pretty smooth we were given a room on the 16th floor, the room was clean and tidy but definitely tired and needs a revamp, windows outside filthy .... but it was the 16th floor !!!! only 3 lifts so long waits for them always.
On our 1st night we realised we would be having very little sleep ,,,,,,,,,, the plumbing of the hotel seemed to be running right next to our room so every time a tap, bath shower toilet were used it was really loud in our room , a real downside im sorry to say,
the breakfast was a buffet style with eggs being cooked freshly do your own toast.
we were unsure of the situation of the hotel on arrival but we found we were pleased to be out of central Georgetown, as it is called the City hotel we presumed we were in the middle , it is in fact a taxi/bus ride into Georgetown itself, the nearest place is the Gurney Plazas.
on the whole not a bad stay but for sure needs a lot of money to get it back to its former 4 star status, good points free wi fi with a coupon even in your room, helpful staff and ideal if you want to shop till you drop on Gurney
