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.

Good6.0
Spacious hotel. Pool ok. But that’s about how much I can say. A bit old . Door of my room had to be slammed hard for it to close. Food in the coffee house is not up to my expectations. Overall better n newer hotels elsewhere for that price.

This is a super clean and friendly hotel with beautiful views of the Island! The restaurants serve some of the best cuisine I have ever experienced.

Not that great. Okay!
It was okay. Nothing great about this place. Their room key cards were not working during my stay and it was very irritating. Shuttle service is not very particular about time. Restaurants are super expensive and food is not worth the price.
