    The staff was really friendly, well trained: on par or exceeded guest services of large corporate hotel chains. Privately owner and perfectly operated! We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Penang.

    a 3-star hotel

    It is a 3-star hotel, does not worth 5 stars. Beds in both rooms were not clean.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Delightful staff in a clean,comfortable and stylish hotel. We had an executive plus room with club access, so can only speak for that. The door and security staff couldn’t have been nicer, very helpful and efficient. The hotel has 2 modern shopping malls next door, plenty of cafes etc, but ‘you could be anywhere’. George Town is too far to walk, taxi costs about R20. The Buddhist temple with reclining Buddha is about 300 metres away and well worth a visit.
