Very good 8.0
Great location to explore George Town on foot
Clean & comfortable room. I like the shower gel, it smells good :) Great location! Great food within walking distance e.g Char Koay Teow, Fried Oyster, Koay Teow Soup, Nasi Kandar etc. Very near to Armenian Street to explore the wall art. Walking distance to Chew Jetty, Little India, Kimberly Street, Chulia Street etc. My friends & I had a good time exploring George Town on foot at our own pace.

Clean and beautiful hotel with a nice service
Like the place and location around it. We travel by the free CAT bus that take you from the jetty to komtar where you can connect to anywhere in Penang. There are bus stops near Spices too. Night hawker food nearby at lebuh chulia.

overal the stay was good, fast check-in, friendly staff and clean room. For the first timer, is hard to find the hotel because it is situated in the small street and also, it is quiet in the night walking out to the main road.

Homely & Quaint!
The location is good. Hotel was cosy and comfortable. Pleasant overall ambiance. Thumbing noises from the wooden flooring on the second floor can be quite disturbing.

Exceptional 10.0
Lovely and Cosy
We had to find a place to stay for the night urgently as a family of 4. Surprisingly, we found available family room for 3 , and even had a pull out bed for the 4th member. It is very near to places where we could do shopping and run errands. The room is really cosy and comfortable. The staff was most helpful and accommodating. We would definitely come back here again in our next trip to Penang!

A short walk from most of Georgetown.
A beautifully renovated old building located within walking distance of most of the Georgetown's attractions. Clean and comfortable with really nice staff. A great place to spend some time while exploring the fabulous food the town has to offer. Talk to the staff...their recommendations are worth it.

Good 6.0
Nice hotel with good location, but the service is not up to standard, we stayed there for 2 nights 1. Not a single greeting from reception staff, we did initiate to greet them all the time... 2. We asked for extra hangers, did not get them until the next day we asked again n was told they did not have extra 3.Very little portion of breakfast, not to mention the taste... 4. We ordered nasi Lemark which is part of the choice,n ask if chilli can be separate as we don't want too spicy, but no one gets back to us... Very average service....

Lovely old hotel - with lots and lots of stairs
I had booked the loft room, and though the King-size bed was on the upper floor, I ended up sleeping on the day- bed on the lower floor. The stairs up were very narrow and perhaps the hotel could have stressed this for guests 'of a certain age' where nightly visits to the loo have become a norm! Overall, staff very friendly, and would recommend it for younger guests where mobility is not a concern.
