Disappointed

I've always stayed here when I'm in Georgetown - I don't think I will anymore. I was given a standard room - it was pokey and the facilities were not up to par. The shower hook was low, no hand towels or face towels (only upon request) and the bar fridge was noisy. I was only allocated a new room the next day. It used to be quite decent - now it has really fallen from grace. Pity

Not as good as expected, but given good discount might go again

Located towards the far end of Georgetown, bus to Komtar is 5 mins. The music from the roof top bar blasted past 1am daily so if you stay on higher floors (eg. >10) you can hear it. My booking comes with free $20 vouchers and upgrade to next category, vouchers can be used in lounge or restaurant, I used it on alcohol and bar snacks. Upgrade is not given according to reception superior rooms are fully booked, I didn't believe that but didn't argue further.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are into pubs and clubs there are many around the areas, including bigger Thai discos, smaller pubs where you can watch your sports channel, bars where you can hook up girls (not free), else nothing much. You can find cheap nice food nearby as well. e.g.. Red Garden (hawker style)

Simple short trip

After I check waiting friend to fetch me. After one hour I'm aware forget to take my wine and cigarettes as I put on the lobby. I call to the hotel reception counter, they help me check and also helped me to keep waiting for me to get back. The staffs is friendly and helpful. When I go to Penang I will go to stay here again!!

Good Location

Was not a friendly and professional enough service at reception,as it took a while for them to check my booking, but this does not apply to all staff. Concierge services are good as well as taxi services. Booked Superior room and requested for sea view, was told only during check in all superior rooms have no sea view, had one facing a car park. Rooms are spacious, simple and clean, bar fridges are empty, Nice rotating restaurant with buffet dinner and pleasant indoor and out door bars. Peaceful and quiet and easy to walk around the area to little India, china town and other sights an d eateries.

The "Hot Deal" was a "Not Deal"!!

The hotel is located on the northern edge of the old town centre, within reasonable walking distance of the main sights. The decor is a bit old now and could use a touch up. The room was not cleaned up totally properly (missed some garbage!) The WiFi signal was very good. The reservation came with a "Hot Deal" of a free food voucher and possible upgrade if available at check-in. But the staff said no to the voucher and refused to check for a possible upgrade!
