Exceptional 10.0
Lovely little gem!
This is a real hidden gem! Doesn't appear on any of the "top lists" for Heritage hotel stays in Penang, but we booked it based on the stellar reviews on Trip Advisor and the outstanding rate in and were so happy with it when we arrived! Big bedroom, lovely internal courtyard to have breakfast, beautiful heritage features in the building, quiet location in a quiet street off Lebuh Chulia, and nice friendly receptionists. The positive points: > Big bedroom with comfy firm bed & soft pillows, good air conditioning > Quiet peaceful room in the back (the "Majestic" room) > Lovely décor to give guests the heritage hotel feel > Fantastic location -- easy walk to Chowrasta Market, Chulia street night hawker, Love Lane bars, street art, and easy walk to anything in Georgetown! We were only there for a weekend hence wandered around Georgetown mainly. > Friendly reception staff who made you feel welcome! > Simple breakfast of nasi lemak and very tasty nyonya kueh > Powerful showerheads in the bathroom! Downsides: can't think of any....! You will need to walk upstairs 1 floor to the bedrooms, but there are 2 rooms downstairs as well.

Something need to be fixed ...
The hotel looks very nice & classic but the room furniture was so so , the shower head cover was missing , the safety lock at the door was broken , the chairs in the room are not comfortable ...
