    Exceptional”

    If you're the high-end type of traveller then this place is not for you. But if you're looking for decent beddings, clean toilet (at least during my stay) then this is the place. I don't expect too much for a start because my purpose is to explore what Penang has to offer rather than how's my room gonna be but turns out to be not bad at all. Particularly liked the clean toilet.

    The room is clean and quite spacious for one person. Toilet is clean and they provide fridge in room also. I think it is a very good deal for the price. Conveniently located at Penang Road and it's close to malls and easy to walk around Georgetown.

    Location is the best. In the heart of Penang. Ada lot parking dekat belakang hotel. Easier sebab Georgetown ni susah nak park kereta. Plus the parking rate is also cheap. So what more do you want? A complete worth of your money.

    Room is spacious, extra balcony space is nice for hanging clothes to dry. Didn’t get to check out the pool since we were always out and about but the hotel is nice, even let us leave our luggage there first before our check in time.
