Fabulous 8.6 From 57 reviews

Good 6.0
Spices hotel
Pros: The hotel is in a good location in Georgetown. Check-in was smooth and staff friendly. The hotel is clean. WiFi worked pretty well. Cons: The room we had was very small, with no place to put anything. There was only 1 outlet. The air conditioning never got that cold. And there was never any hot water.

Beautiful room and magical neighborhood
Gorgeous room, very clean, fantastic neighborhood in historic quarter of Georgetown. Staff friendly, helpful. The only minor issues were a slow draining shower and hot water didn't stay hot enough for a whole shower, tended to get lukewarm after a few minutes. Breakfast was good, only the orange juice was not real juice, more of an orange drink. Overall, great stay.

Exceptional 10.0
A short walk from most of Georgetown.
A beautifully renovated old building located within walking distance of most of the Georgetown's attractions. Clean and comfortable with really nice staff. A great place to spend some time while exploring the fabulous food the town has to offer. Talk to the staff...their recommendations are worth it.

Very Good 8.0
Great location to explore George Town on foot
Clean & comfortable room. I like the shower gel, it smells good :) Great location! Great food within walking distance e.g Char Koay Teow, Fried Oyster, Koay Teow Soup, Nasi Kandar etc. Very near to Armenian Street to explore the wall art. Walking distance to Chew Jetty, Little India, Kimberly Street, Chulia Street etc. My friends & I had a good time exploring George Town on foot at our own pace.
