“Avoid the bedbugs”
Reviewed 11 December 2009

I was on my way back from overseas and decided to spend a week in Penang.

The location is aset moung the old section of Penang Road with lots old town shops and coffee shops along the place. Not to mention wonders at every corner or back alley. I had the best Indian food with some friends down a side alley and no stomach problems.

Upon entry, the room was of a good size but what was most dissapointing was that I ended up with bed bugs. The service was a bit slow and all in all I only stayed for 2 nights and ended up changing hotels.
