Excellent hotel in the heart of Georgetown!
I had a wonderful stay here. The staff are wonderful and as a long term guest, they really went out of their way to make sure my stay was as comfortable as possible. They offered me a free afternoon tea for every day of my stay as well as free laundry service which was much appreciated in the heat of Penang! The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location of the hotel is excellent - it's very centrally located and you can walk to any part of Georgetown in 15mins or less All in all, I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!
