Not so great hotel.
Ok hotel. Not that great. Location is far away from any nearby shopping and more. Over priced. Front desk policy Is very strict and not flexible on anything. Would not recommend it. Stay in George Town if you could.

Good access to airport
Short overnight just to catch an early flight from Penang airport. The free shuttle to the airport is only once per hour, but a taxi there is cheap. Decent hotel, nothing to sing home about. Nothing else in the vicinity.
