The interior of the hotel has strong peranakan influence, making it a photo worthy place to rest and recharge. The staff are also friendly, warm and take pride in their work. However, there can be greater variety in the hotel breakfast selection

Certainly a heritage style property, that's in the heart of Georgetown and minutes away from famous food and heritage streets. Amenities are basic, but still an overall comfortable stay

A Gem of Find
Fantastic property in the middle of the historic bit / Chinatown. The place looks like it’s been newly refurbished to a high standard. The staff were super attentive and the location couldn’t be better.
