      Home Sweet Home in Penang”

      We felt like we are at home and the dwelling was so clean and neat.It was simple and decorated in minimalist concept.We stayed in 2 room unit, and it has 1 sofa bed in the living room (with a comforter and a pillow).There were extra pillow in each room too.There were 2 door fridge,washer dryer,microwave and induction stove.The only challenge is the parking space especially if during the day.At night we used the available parking space just beside the building.For nasi kandar lover, you can just walk (or run) to join the long queue of Deen Maju Nasi Kandar (the sotong goreng were so nice and cheap!!) and walk to Famous Kopi Peng Aunty! 1st Avenue is also 2 blocks away, 7 E, spa and yes in Penang you got to walk a lot!Overall, I highly recommend this hotel to family with older children and elderly who can climb stairs. Staff were sooooooooo friendly and helpful.Thanks naaaa!Nanti cek mai lagi dok sini!50 stars!!

      Everything is perfect but...”

      The room itself and the facilities are exceed my expectation. Applause on that. No car parking provided so you need to find it yourself behind/besides the alley/road. The only problem is that I had already notify the hotel on my late check in (around 10.15 pm). I was informed that apparently the lobby is closed after 9.40 pm and was given a phone number to call 15 minutes prior to my arrival, so that person in charge could come with the room key. I keep on calling the number given as soon as approaching Penang Bridge until arriving at the hotel but to no avail. Then only I saw the Notice at the Hotel front door and realized that there are another phone number to call regarding late check in. After standing in front of the door for around 20 minutes, the hotel person came to deliver room key and collect the deposit. Since I was there with my kids, therefore it was a very uncomfortable check in experience. Please improve on that. Thanks!

      Beautiful apartment. ”

      Rented it for one night. And then plan to move to a different area in the city every day and get a different hotel to experience all the corners of the city but after seeing the room and for the price. I rented it for the rest of my stay. Completely furnished with TVs in the living room and bedroom living room has a sofa bed in the living room and has a full kitchen with dishes and a washer and dryer. Amazing water pressure. The only issue I had with this place is the Wi-Fi sometimes it really slow. Other than that it’s perfect.
