    Beautiful Heritage hotel. Comfortable room. Well kept. Lovely front desk staff. Very Helpful and always smiling! Lots of good food options within a few minutes walk. Easy to walk to all the sights. Bathroom a bit dated. The pool should not be advertised as such. You can really only dip your feet.

    Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Easy access to bus. Be aware some bus drivers don't stop for whatever reason. I have 4 buses passed me and other tourists. I mean they act like they don't see you standing there with your hand waving them down. It is a problem for the foreign people who lives there as well but they say they report but nothing was done.

    Extraordinary Stay here!!

    Rooms are clean and cosy with antique-styled renovation. What's more important is the hotel staff are super firendly. Ryan-the one who works at the front desk is super warm and professional.

    Regular rooms are rather small and dark and face a wall, though they have nice furnishings. As do all the public areas. The breakfast hot offerings were served tepid because the plates had been arranged in advance. Solution is to order the muesli. The pool was a delightful bonus for chilling after a long hot day. The staff were gracious and helpful. Our sink and shower did not drain very well. Nor did the sink in the room of a friend. We were moved one night to one of the rooms on the street side because of the drainage problems which had lots of light and room, and was absolutely lovely but would surely have cost twice the price had we had to pay for it. The hotel is a nice quiet location with easy access to nearby restaurants. Another bonus was the roof deck with a lovely view over the city.

    15-20 walk to Old Town. Not too many food options nearby but some great laksa. Building is quirky and nice. Room was big and spacious. Staff very friendly and helpful. Accommodated a very late check in and good communication from our 3x delayed flight. Avoid the room above building’s entry. It is loud from guests coming and going all day.

    Lovely old hotel

    Lovely older hotel. The staff was super nice and helpful. Easy check in. The location is a bit far from most Georgetown sights.

    Property is a restored building with great charm. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was small but adequate and kept clean. Pool is just a wading pool-18” water so can’t really swim.

    Mediocre room and bad location but great staff.

    The bed was dirty but all 3 star hotels in southeast asia have stained sheets. Not lots of stains but the sheets are certainly not westin white. None of the rooms have a view and its not a good location BUT the staff are very kind. You may get better accomodations for just a bit more somewhere else. I really liked the staff and the room was ok but i would not stay there again.

    quaint historic boutique hotel in quiet central location. inner rooms are rather small/tight with hardly any natural light. small fridge + hairdryer provided but no microwave or closet (only hangers + hooks on wall). bathroom needs sprucing up (faulty shower faucet + sink pulling away from wall/caulking). convenient free parking in small lot nearby. very friendly + helpful staff made our stay pleasant.
