Amazing Hotel and Great Value.
Amazing hotel for the price. Very modern, very clean. Everything you could need. They even leave lollipops on the beds for you. Air con was really good but a bit noisey. Laundry service was very expensive but no more so than most hotels. Breakfast was goo but more geared toward eastern tastes. The shower was out of the world! The water pressure could go so high it almost hurt. Loved it. Good location if a little away from the action. Took 10 minutes to walk to the centre of George Town. Lots of eateries on the way. Staff were very friendly but waiting times at reception were quite long as they seemed to take forever to check in and out. They printed stuff for us and brought anything to the room we needed very quickly. I would definitely stay again. I wish more hotels as cheap as this were as high a standard.

Nice staying
Good location, there are some night food market and convenience store near hotel, We stayed in this hotel total 3 nights, At the first 2 nights everything is alright, one minor thing is that the room air conditioner is not cool enough, but they send a maintenance to fix it quickly when we calling to the service centre. We check out to Lankawai for 2 days n come back spending the 3 night, we find 3 parts of blood stain on the bed sheet and some on the blanket, we call to service centre asking the solution, their staff just give us a new bed sheet to change by ourselves, finally we ask to change the room since I can't bear to cover the visible blood stain bed sheet on my body, after we changing room, I still can find the same problem on the other room, it appears on the end of the bed this time, I feel tired to change room again. It makes me feel disappointed about the handling skill and the housekeeping on this hotel.
